What a great weekend! It seems as though every week brings a new and exciting milestone to this crazy ride they call 'owning your own business' and I love it! This past summer has been extremely busy for the AddisonGrace Events team. We were honored to be a part of 2 weddings in July; Travis & Jillian and Jimmy & Chelsea. So much fun, laughter, dancing and love shared!
For Travis & Jillian, this was the first time the AGE team traveled to a location outside of Wichita for an event. We were so honored to have been chosen to work with these wonderful families. Luckily, we still had the opportunity to work with some fabulous vendors from Wichita, such as BlueMoon Caterers, Cameo Cakes and the FlowerFactory. We learned so much and enjoyed the beautiful venue!
We then had the honor to plan and celerate celebrate the marriage of Chelsea & Jimmy! Chelsea is an AGE team member, which made it that much sweeter. It really was a wonderful day! So many custom details for this event. We absolutely love creating beautiful design that fit into our couple's budgets. Chelsea is also is a dance instructor at the NW YMCA, having all of her dancers there made this day a treat! Her sweetie pie hubby was able to surprise her by having her dance girls secretly practice a little dance to lead them down the aisle! She was surprised into tears! Those are the moments we love and make what we do so fantastic!
Shortly after, we began planning for a couple of fun AGE firsts...creating our brochure and designing our table display for the Open House at the New NOAH's Event Venue in Wichita. We are so fortunate to be one of their preferred vendors and to have the opportunity to showcase our style, product offerings and team at this event. We also loved having the opportunity to meet other vendors in the industry.
Our table decor was inspired by the AddisonGrace Events company colors; Navy, Raspberry, Grey and White. We are currently crushing on the nautical theme, so the navy and white runner was a bit of a nod to this.
Everyone that came to see us was surprised by the yummy goodness of the macaroons we had to offer. We are so lucky to have the contact we do for these delicious treats, our chef friend Phil creates these delightful treats. Macaroons are such a great idea for a wedding favor or an addition to your sweet treat table.
We are also super excited to officially launch Against the Grain - prints & stationery! This is a part of the AGE service offerings, where we create custom invitations and stationery for our events. We LOVE invitations and all the goodies that go along with making our client's events so great! Pretty excited to offer this with our packages or stand alone.
So much more to come! Excited for the 2016 weddings and all that is yet to come. They say success doesn't come without the necessary hard work, dedication and perseverance...we are amidst those days. It's been a crazy ride and most definitely will get crazier!
We are looking forward to it!
