I know it's a blogging faux-pas to apologize for not updating your blog for awhile, but I’m going to do it anyway. I’m sorry. The past few months have been a whirlwind for Laura Davis Events, and I’m excited to bring you up to speed.
With wedding season in full swing, we’ve been busy coordinating some really fabulous events. We love our clients. Seriously. We’re working with some of the nicest couples and that makes our job even more gratifying.
The second half of this year is even busier than the first, so I’m thrilled to be welcoming two new members to my team. Jaime Hall was one of our interns for the 2009 wedding season and is re-joining us as an event coordinator. Jamie Patterson just completed our internship program and is joining the team as an assistant event coordinator. Welcome aboard!
I’ve been incredibly blessed with the growth and success of my business over the years, so it’s important to remember to give back. I’m honored to be working as this year’s production chairperson for the American Cancer Society’s Cattle Baron’s Ball, taking place on November 6th at the Shotwell-Gustafson Pavilion on the campus of Oakland University. Each day, 58 people in Metro Detroit are diagnosed with cancer. The Cattle Baron’s Ball raises money to help the American Cancer Society assist these patients and caregivers early in their cancer journey, providing much-needed resources and support. Check out the event website and consider getting involved, or just attend and enjoy a night of great food and great fun.
I’m also committed to paying it forward. Today marks my first day as the Michigan state coordinator of the Association of Bridal Consultants. I’m looking forward to working with other wedding planners across the state to strengthen our industry, continue our education and build our companies to reach new goals. ABC is a fantastic organization and I encourage anyone with questions to contact me. I’m always willing to help out!
And finally, as if all of this wasn’t enough excitement, we’ll soon be opening our new design studio in downtown Royal Oak. More details will come later, but I can’t wait to share them with you! Until then, have a great day!
