Happy New Year!

On this last day of the year, I wanted to take a minute to look back at 2010 and just some of the highlights.

On February 26, we welcomed our second daughter into the world!  Abigail Grace weighed in at 8 lbs, 10 oz, 20 inches long with blue eyes and brown hair – just like her mama!

Cakes for a Cause – a charity event I planned with Kasey from Bliss Wedding and Event Design that benefited the Mid-Ohio Foodbank’s Operation Feed – took place on March 23, 2010.  Nearly 125 cake lovers attended the 2010 Cakes for a Cause Auction and helped to raise over $4800 or over 9600 meals – enough to feed 9 people for a year and more than double our original goal! We were also thrilled to be awarded Operation Feed’s Outstanding New Campaign for 2010 – an amazing honor!

In April, we coordinated the wedding of Christy and Bryce – watch for this wedding to be featured in the premiere issue of Capital Style Bride hitting the stands January 11!

In May, we were honored to be part of Amanda and Keith’s wedding at The Lakes Country Club.  It was a reunion of sorts as Keith is the younger brother of Eric, a groom whose wedding we planned in 2009 and he and his wife Rachel were in the wedding party!

We had a wonderful time at Kristin and Michael’s Fourth of July weekend wedding at German Village Guesthouse:

In July, I was proud to be a member of the founding Board of Directors of the Ohio Chapter of Wish Upon a Wedding – an organization that gives weddings to couples facing terminal illness and other life altering situations.  I am so proud to give my time to this amazing organization!

September 7th saw my little Ellie turn 3!

Julia and Angelo were married at Northbank Park on a perfect mid-September evening:

Tess and John were married in her parent’s backyard in the rain – it did absolutely nothing to dampen spirits!

Amy and John literally danced all night long (well, Amy did) at COSI in October.

We ended our season with Katie and Greg at the Columbus Country Club:

Throw in corporate events, baby and bridal showers and my own family reunion and you can probably guess why I say 2010 was a busy, fun filled year!  Thank you to all the couples and families that we met along the way and of course, our incredible vendor partners.

I am looking so forward to 2011!  We are working with so many amazing couples and have some fun things up our sleeve starting with Cakes for a Cause 2011 on March 1.

Happy New Year!
Here is to 2011 being the best year yet!
