Hello and Happy New Year!

I am so excited that engagement season and wedding season are upon us. If you are recently engaged, congrats!

As the 2013 wedding season begins, I am so thankful and appreciative of the experiences the last nine wedding seasons has given myself and my entire team. We’ve planned over 400 events and have made some great friends along the way. I can’t help but think of those very first events back in 2003 where Brides and Grooms put their trust and faith in me. I’ve learned so much, and am so pleased to be a member of San Diego’s wedding community.

What began as a fun side project has flourished into a team of five planners: Rachel joined us in 2010, Lindsay joined us in 2011 and our newest team member Laura joined us in 2012. Nicole has been a member of the team since the company’s inception in 2003.

The past few years have been especially exciting and challenging for us. We’ve been featured in a number of media outlets, television and print. Our events are as diverse as ever, and we are so pleased to add floral design to our roster of services. Our company name has also been changed from I Do…Weddings! to I Do…Weddings & Events, as we now offer planning services for all types of events, including baby showers, anniversaries, non-profit events, fashion shows and bar and bat mitzvahs.

As we ramp up for 2013, we’ll be posting to our brand new blog each and every day of January. Be on the lookout for exciting announcements, features on each of our planners, photos of recent events and special offers.

In honor of our 10th wedding season and the re-branding of our website and company as a whole, we are offering a 10% discount for event planning services when booked by January 31, 2013.  All you have to do is mention “Congrats on the Big 10!” on the phone, email, Facebook or in person. This offer is not valid for previously booked services, and if you are inquiring for design services such as floral design, you will receive a credit of $100.

We are extremely excited about the year ahead, and be sure to keep on the lookout of what’s new and exciting with I Do…Weddings & Events. Check back tomorrow for our first giveaway of the year!
