Head First.

Diving that is. Diving head first into something that has felt so right for so long. This week I finally did it and bought the certified rights to the domain name www.heygorgeousevents.com. And I have started my journey into the wedding planning industry, destined to be the rad-est, most unique, hardest working chic slash coordinator any bride-to-be would ever want and need. I have a shoot in the works right now too. And some lovely and very talented vendors willing to work with me to make my visions come to reality. I also have a few potential clients and this makes me incredibly excited. Oh and the website which will live at the above listed domain, is 65% done. I am really quite excited to finally get it up online and live for all to see.

I read an article on the top 5 things elderly people wish they would have done differently in their lives. And one common response was that most people would have taken more chances; they would have done what made them happy mainly in their professional lives rather than working in pointless jobs that simply filled their days with meaningless work. They essentially, would have gone for their dreams and made those dreams into their reality. So here goes nothing...


And because our wedding photographer is so amazing (and pretty cute too) she was kind enough to send me a detail shot form our big day, just for the purpose of this post; thank you tons Mrs. Wilcher! I guess you could say I love this photo because it represents everything I'd want my business to represent. Heavenly goodness, a bit of glam and a whole lotta love. 

In case you're wondering, I loved my bouquet of ivory garden roses, cream vandellas and white ranunculus hand tied with two giant black lace bows. The vintage hummingbird pin was a special touch in memory of my best friend, my Grandma who thankfully was there all day with us in spirit. And my gray nails, were my way of giving traditionalism (and white tips) a big punch in the face. Standing out is so beautiful. Happy Friday my lovelies. Without you all I couldn't be the inspired woman I am today. Keep dreaming big xo

Well I have just dived head first into your blog... and love it! (Found you via the gorgeous Simone at The Bottom Of The Ironing Basket). Your wedding and honeymoon posts (and pics) are beautiful and I love the honesty behind your (post) wedding day post. As for your journey you're about to embark on I'm thrilled for you. You have to take the chance - it's scary but you'll never regret doing it... & I have a feeling you'll do well! I launched my own sideline in August to the blog & it's hard work but I'm loving it. Hope you don't mind but I've included you in my Weekend Links. You have a new follower! xxx

Your words truly inspire me! My dream career is similar to yours. I want to start up my own event planning / design firm someday. It is something I dream of doing, but it scares me not knowing when the time will be right. I guess one day I will just have to dive in. Best of luck to you! (I really enjoy your blog!)

What an inspiration you are! I think we all have dreams about what and who we want to be. Most of us settle because we are scared of the hard work and failure. You will be the best wedding plannner ever!
