2016 Year in Review
As 2016 comes to an end, we wanted to recap our last 12 months and share some of our favorite things from this year. We started the year with a new baby and a new coordinator! I welcomed Baby Lainey into the word just a couple weeks before the start of 2016. In preparation for a second baby, I purposely took on fewer weddings for 2016 and hired Michelle as a second lead planner for our amazing clients.
While we had fewer events overall, we were still quite busy and got a lot accomplished! Our clients are always amazing, and this year was no different. This year, however, was the “year of the dads”. Fathers of the bride and the groom were especially gracious for our services this year. They were vocal, proud and wonderful leaders for the great families we had the pleasure of working with.
We started the year hosting a bridal seminar at The Athletic Club of Columbus (which was awesome!) and the year went from there. We had a groom that was so sick prior to the ceremony, we had to keep a trash can hidden behind him (I’m happy to say, he rallied for an all night party!), an 8 year old Man of Honor with so much charisma and personality, he made an entire room of adults laugh and cry all at the same time, Brutus make a cameo appearance in an amazing sequin jacket, a couple of new bands rock out receptions, new experience at a few venues (Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center, Vue, Topiary Park), a styled shoot with some very talented vendors, a super fun StR Events photo shoot and a few exciting events outside of weddings – bridal shower, baby shower, birthday party and corporate events.
Here are a few of my favorite photos and moments from 2016…
