Pearls Events Favorite | October Weddings

It's the first weekend in October, which means for the past three years I've been busy this weekend with work. This year, however, I have the entire weekend free to spend at home! (Although next weekend is packed with two amazing weddings - Ann & Kris and Lindsay & Ryan, so I'll be prepping for both of those on my "weekend off"...)

Three years ago today, I was preparing for Sarah & Dan's wedding, which was Pearls Events' first official event. The temperatures were in the mid-80's and it was an unseasonably warm day when Sarah & Dan tied the knot on October 6th. I worked with some amazing vendors and made some great friends (Amy Carroll to name just one!). Plus, the clients have become friends of mine, which is always fantastic.

Two years ago, it was slightly cooler and I was at Bree & Brad's Glen Arbor wedding on Friday. Another wedding with Amy Carroll and another amazing set of clients who have become friends. They had their first child almost a year ago now, and he is absolutely adorable! Liza & James' Grand Rapids wedding on Saturday was beautiful and their families were a dream to work with. PLUS I got to see a July 2008 bride there (Hi Kathryn!).

And one year ago, we were getting ready for one of my all-time favorite weddings, Liz & Don's big day. Working with Liz was like working with my sister - it was easy, we got along great, and had a similar vision for the day. I couldn't wait for her to marry the love of her life - Don. She has also become a good friend of mine and enjoy our coffee dates periodically.

This weekend, I have to say I am excited about having off. I'm almost certain I didn't get one inquiry for October 2nd. No worries though, as it's a yard work - cooking chili - nesting - sort of weekend around the VanderMaas house.

It is CRAZY how fast time flies - I cannot believe I'll be entering my fourth year as a business. Over the past three years, I've been building an amazing team of wedding planners and I am SO excited where 2011 is going to take us.

Wishing each of these couples a happy anniversary weekend from Pearls Events!
