As I sat down today to write our 2014 Year In Review, I was actually at a loss for words. I thought maybe if I went back to last years edition, I could think of a good place place to begin. Yet, I instantly became emotional reading it. Mostly because Moira and I still feel the same bursting sense of love and gratitude for our work as we did last year (and in 2012) but even more so. As a new mother, I finally understand what it means to love your child more wholeheartedly every day, for new and different reasons. Moira and I truly feel that same love for Whim. Every single day gets more awesome. Every challenge drives us to get better. Every couple is a new chance to see love in another light.
One of our brides, Alex, wrote a review for us that truly touched us this year. It said: “Natalie and Moira are experienced and busy in the business,yet they make you feel like your wedding is the moment they have been waiting for.” We cried when we read it, because every wedding we are even a small part of is the moment we are waiting for. Each wedding suddenly becomes our one and only, our new favorite, the apple of our eye, a special and irreplaceable moment in time. (Just ask Moira to tell you her favorite bouquet….Hint: It’s always the one she is working on at that moment!). We never tire of it. Love never gets old.
So as we ring in the New Year, we are excited to look back at 2014 and reflect on these growing moments of love. We are so very grateful to our clients for opening up their hearts, for letting us in to their lives and for reminding us that real love simply keeps getting better every day.
ps. Tune in tomorrow for Part 2 of the Year In Review: a gushing look at the second half of our 2014 weddings, and some fun facts about our awesome team of #whimen.
Happy New Year!
