In January, at the beginning of this year, my mom and I had the pleasure of meeting Rhiannon of Hey Gorgeous Events at the Sage Wedding Pros workshop. We instantly fell in love with her spunky personality and "love of all things pretty". Since this Canadian gal now resides in Western Michigan, close to my beloved GVSU, we have had the joy of sharing a visit a couple of times. So, when Rhi announced her big relaunch party for her new website, we knew we couldn't pass up a 3 hour drive to celebrate with her.
Rhi's brand was already beautiful to begin with, but now she has really stepped it up! Take a look at her site this instant, and love it....and then get back to reading here.
Of course, her party was a perfect match to the redesign with catered nibbles and sweets, beautiful florals, a canvas of her artistry to sign and to-go Starbucks cups filled with little samples of love.
The extra bonus to the party was the people there. Rhi knows good peeps.
I was so lucky to get to meet Amy Carroll of Amy Carroll Photography in person and discover that she is even sweeter than the original blog post I featured her in for Kelly and Matt's painting....here.
A couple other names to drop and be sure to look for in 2013:
-Parsonage Events - Another mother daughter team that creates stunning florals and provides rentals for events to complete the perfect day. I just loved Liz...so much that she bought a calendar!
-Red Heels Events - Michelle first caught my eye with the cute dress she was wearing with these pretty red shoes to compliment. Upon receiving her business card, I saw that she was bringing her brand to life! You have to visit her site to sneak a peak at her and how she brings every event full circle.
-Pixel and Hank - I love when you meet someone and realize that you do actual know each other already. Daisy and I went to Grand Valley together, and though we were in different majors (Daisy in graphic design and I in illustration), we very much remembered each other. How fantastic that we are both practicing some kind of art form linked to weddings as our careers! She creates the most beautiful handmade accessories.
Not bad for a 3 hour evening and 200 mile trek to get there. Mom and I loved every minute of it and are both so proud of Rhi.
Rhi, continue to inspire with all the pretty that surrounds us, your zest for life and personality that could spark a fire. You inspire me to truly be myself...and to have fun!!! You're climbing to the top lady!!
