2007 is quickly drawing to a close and a NEW 2008 is rapidly approaching…..


I wanted to reflect on this AMAZING year


January marks the beginning of my 8th year in wedding consulting, as owner of The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants.


This past year I achieved several milestones:



The Queen of Hearts was named to “Best of The Knot” 2007, the Grace Ormonde Wedding Style’s Platinum 5 Start List, as well as being nominated as one of the top wedding consultants in Fox’s Hot List.


I was privileged to have worked with The Emily Post Institute on three books which came out this year – The Wedding Planner 4th edition, Emily Post’s Planner for Moms, and Emily Post’s Party Planner.


During the ‘off season” ( Not that there REALLY IS an ‘off’ season) I was invited to speak to several industry related groups ranging from local catering and photography associations to regional associations for wedding consultants and an international conference for videographers.


Obviously, I’m really excited about the great and very diverse couples I had the honor to work with this year…


My clients this year were Russian Orthodox, and Hindu as well as Catholic, Jewish and Christian….


Their ethnicity ran the gamut from Indian, Irish, and Mexican, to Chinese-American, and Filipino….


I had the privilege of working with interracial couples, same sex couple and interfaith couples…


I worked with local brides, brides whose fiancés were deployed over seas, I worked with couples in four time zones, as well as local moms; and planned several Green/ Eco -Friendly/ Sustainable weddings…


I’m really excited that my clients are so diverse – I can honestly say I’m working with fun, loving people who I’m able to build great relationships with – and that’s exactly where I wanted my business to be.


This has truly been a year I’m proud of, and I thank all of you who were a part of it…


Thanks to all of you with whom I’m currently working- I value my relationship with all of you…


I wish all of you a Happy 2008 and a year of Health, Hearts and Happiness


PS – I’m hiding out for a few days to reflect and rest and will be back in the office on Wednesday, January 2nd
