I am so excited to formally introduce Hollie, Sweetchic’s newest Event Coordinator! When we met, I was immediately taken by her charming, sweet nature, and knew that I had found the perfect addition to the Sweetchic team. I especially love how I can immediately pick her out of a crowd by her sweet mop of naturally curly hair! :) I’ll let her introduce herself…and when you meet Hollie in person, you’ll love her too!
In my small hometown, the weddings are pretty much all the same: Ceremonies at the same churches, receptions at a local hall, forgettable decorations, and the same (not-so-great) food from one event to the next. You can only have the grilled-chicken-and-California-veggie-mix combo so many times before you start yawning between bites.
But growing up around these weddings, I never knew there was anything else. That is, until my friends started getting engaged. I was sucked right into a whole new world of wedding blogs, new vocabulary (FI, DOC, STD, PWC, anyone?) and oodles of delicious wedding inspiration everywhere I looked. I absolutely could not—and still can’t—get enough.
Since this huge, eye-opening discovery, my life has been forever changed. I’ve been a dedicated bridesmaid, a blogger, a coordinator for friends, and finally began working as Charlene’s assistant here at Sweetchic Events. Oh, and I also got engaged, which only added to my obsession and has made me a Planzilla…it’s much different than a Bridezilla, I can assure you.
My favorite wedding aspect hands-down are the unique touches that reflect each couple. Whether it’s with a wall of mismatched, antique picture frames filled with memories, or a symbolic song or photo prop, I am crazy in love with sweet little accents. And because Charlene’s attention to detail is incredible, I am also crazy in love with working at Sweetchic Events. What can I say? I’m a lucky gal!
When I’m not working at weddings or planning my own big day, I’m freelance writing, planning themed parties, volunteering with the Chicago chapter of Wish Upon a Wedding, and scouring yard sales and estate sales with my fiancé for the perfect wedding touches. Are you looking for 100 random patterned plates and the perfect milk glass accents? I am so the girl for you.
