Just last December I announced the beginning of Sarah Tucker Events. It has been a remarkable year. I am so grateful for those that trusted me from early on, both clients and vendors. You’ll never know how thankful, but I hope I show you that! I can say wholeheartedly that I hit the jackpot in the client department. I feel it is such a privilege to walk beside these women in this exciting time in their life, get to know them not solely as bride/groom but as friends. When the wedding day arrives I feel a closeness to them that is hard to describe. It feels a lot like home, like family.
I am an intentionally small company. I’ve said it before, but my intention is not to have a truck load of weddings in one year. I crave developing relationships with my clients so I can anticipate their needs and serve them well, particularly on the wedding day. I am very invested in my clients. But saying “no” is always a little bitter tasting for me. Recently, I’ve had to turn down some exciting work, because ultimately I want to give the best to my clients and to my family. Which by the way, my family, though I haven’t announced it here yet but pretty much every square inch of the internet elsewhere, is expanding in the next month. We’re expecting our first born within the next few weeks. We’re pretty much beside ourselves in anticipation over here!
And with that BIG life change welcomes another change over here. My sweet sister, Molly, a hospitality and events graduate from the University of Mississippi, has been and will continue to assist me on wedding days and day-to-day activities over here at STE. Molly is the most organized gal I know, incredibly detailed oriented, and has style for days. I am beyond blessed to have her join us!
As amazing as 2012 was for my business, I can’t wait to see what 2013 will bring. I am thrilled to announce that I will fulfill a lifelong goal of being published in my favorite magazine (not once, but twice) in the coming year. I can’t wait to share more about those projects! Every single wedding in 2013 is brimming with details that make my heart go boom. We are working with absolutely incredible photographers and floral designers to bring dreams to life, and create memories that will forever be cherished.
And lastly, a few business goals for 2013…
– Exceed client expectations
– Get published in Southern Weddings Magazine
– Attend Engage 2013
– Attend Bridal Market in NYC
… and inspire my clients to love their (future) spouse BIG.
Happy EVERYTHING to all of you this Holiday Season!!
