I attended the Kemptville Women in Business meeting last night and had an amazing time meeting some amazing, like-minded women. I was talking to someone about my business and what my passion is behind it and I came out with the line “No moment is too small to celebrate” and she looked at me and said “that is a perfect line for you to use”. She’s right, I’m going to start using it.
As I said, I was telling her about why I am so passionate about my company and explained to her that I am not only about doing big lavish events (especially weddings…a discussion for another day) but I am even more interested in doing the small meaningful events. I want to be able to help people organize even the smallest of parties or events. Life is too short not to celebrate the small things in life. I told her the story of my daugher Alyssa losing her first tooth and her looking at me and saying “I want to have a tooth fairy party”…so we did. Losing her first tooth was a huge deal to her and I could have easily been too busy to have a party for her but we made the effort and she still talks about that party to this day.
When I first started my company I posted a statement on my website “No matter what your budget…” and I removed after awhile thinking it was only going to get me into trouble but the more I think about it the more I mean it. Not only the rich and famous deserve to be able to afford a party planner, everyone needs some help sometimes and I am here to do that.
I truly believe that we can plan just about anything you want within any reasonable budget. You obviously can’t call me and expect to pull off a conference for 100 people with a budget of $200 but if you can give me a reasonable number I can certainly give you the very best conference I can put together.
Need help planning an event? Take a minute, put some real thought into a reasonable budget that you can afford for the event and then give me a call. I’d be happy to help.

It takes a long time to build something from scratch. LGBTQ + Wedding Show - Love is Proud started four years ago. The first year was good, attendance, interest in the event from area services and business, media. The second year was challenging, weather and show location impacted attendance at the event. This year was amazing! In order to make things work like you dreamed they would you have to be willing to listen, learn and make changes until you get the chemistry just right. We did it this year! All the pieces came together just like we have always dreamed it would. www.itmevents.ca/?portfolio=love-is-proud-2018... See MoreSee Less
