As I sit here with fewer than twelve hours left in 2008- the wind is whipping, snow is coming and I’m freezing my (you fill in the blank) off….

I’d like to take a quick look back at an AMAZING year for The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants

We’ve had a year filled with great clients; friendships we’ve built and will sustain for years to come – some of the most beautiful weddings we’ve been involved with have happened in 2008..

We’ve had births in The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants extended family both in our staff and in the families of our past clients – and with the good come the bad and unfortunately we’ve had the loss of family¬† with our clients and our colleagues- and we have felt their loss.

In growing my business I’ve taken the plunge eight years in the making – we’ve welcomed Christian Lupo to our staff as our invitation and graphic arts specialist. Our clients LOVE her fresh ideas and attention to detail ..

We’ve also promoted both Rebecca Druckenmiller and Karen Peterkin to the position of Wedding Day Director- enabling us to work with additional clients as in the past I was turning away many wedding day clients as I was booked with our full services weddings…

We are blessed to have won the acclaim of our clients, our peers and the media:

  • Named to the knot Best of Weddings for the second time in 2008
  • Named to the Grace Ormonde wedding style magazine -2008 5 Start Platinum List for the second year in a row.
  • Awarded the Leadership and Achievement Award by the Association of Professional Event Designers
  • Voted Best Wedding Planner in Philadelphia by the Fox Philadelphia Hot List Readers Poll

We are truly thankful that as we approach nearly a decade in making memorable events for couples in the Philadelphia area – that we have grown past the point of being ‘wedding vendors’ to our couples, and past being ‘ the competition” to our colleagues – and that we are truly building amazing relationships and growing our family.

To all of you a 2009 filled with prosperity, and great relationships.

Wishing you the best of Hearts, Health and Happiness

Mark
