...everyone needs a Bradie!"
The first time I read those words in a card from one of my clients, I cried. Then, a few months later, a vendor said the same line. While working an event, by the end of the night, everyone was calling me "Mom" because I was there for whatever they needed and it made us all laugh.
In looking back at these moments and the feedback from my past clients and colleagues, it makes me proud to think that "everyone needs a Bradie." Everyone needs that person who will support them, hype them up, keep them on track, and be your advocate. In life, that person is likely your partner. But who is that person for you both during this process? Who is your neutral confidant, director, and supporter?
Who is there to guide you through the process and keep your day going smoothly?
Who is going to make sure you can relax and cherish each moment?
You need a Bradie.
I believe in having the "right fit" for your coordinator. What's that saying - you won't be everyone's cup o' tea but you're someone's shot of whiskey? Just like relationships, you need a planner, and vendors, that are right for you.
As your planner, I can promise that in everything I do, I lead with these Core Values:
You have my promise to always be honest with you. I will never promise you something that I cannot provide. I am lucky enough to have met a great community of vendors with a range of skills, and we are committed to bringing your dreams to life.
I believe in being clear on my pricing, and investing in professionals to execute your event.
I also believe in paying fair wages to my staff of trusted, reliable individuals.
Relationships are everything! I will always do my best to treat everyone around me the way I would hope to be treated, and I expect that myself, staff, and other vendors will be treated respectfully.
When we meet, you will see my personality! I believe in being your unique self and encourage you to bring that into your event. I want to be me, and I want everyone around me to be comfortable, too - and if we aren't having fun, then what's the point!?
