2016 was a pivotal year for me. I was overworked and burned out. That year we made a lot of changes and now I'm running a business I love while being the wife and mom I want to be. I get to plan some of the South's most stunning weddings and I get to create a legacy for my children. I'm living a life I never even dreamed was possible! While the wedding you’re going to see in this course is considered a luxury wedding per industry standards, the concepts will apply to any wedding you are planning. If you are hoping to move into the realm of luxury weddings, know that this is a long game, not a short one, and it takes time, dedication, and experience. I hope this course inspires, wherever you are in your wedding planning career.
