Throwback Thursday: Chanelle-Gatsby Inspired Wedding at Springdale Country Club

This gorgeous reception at the Springdale Country Club dripped with modern elegance. Inspirations came from the clients’ love of CHanelle and Gatsby.

The space was both warm and intimate helped in part by the low arrangements, candlelight, and long tables. We added touches of blush to the lush, contemporary designs — from the Hogarth curve entry arrangement to the gorgeous, cascading Phalaenopsis orchid bridal bouquet.

Food For Thought: SETH GODIN’S recent BLOG

On Sunday mornings, I like to catch up on my blog reading. Seth Godin is one of my favorite. Seth’s posts are almost always thought provoking.  Sometimes you need to sit with it a moment. Sometimes they hit you hard & fast. Sometimes they are mind-changing & sometimes they are affirming.  They’re never long, but they are always powerful. Of the 5 that I recently read, one (Digital Hygeine) was particually affirming.

These two lines, in particular resonated.

“The solution is fun and simple: find a smart person and have them watch you…”

“…power brings choices, and you may need some help with your choices.”

Mountain Top Wedding Reception

Why did it resonate so much for me? Well, I’ve been working on offering mentoring/coaching recently & as with all new business ventures, I’ve had to define what I’m doing as well as why & how.  These 2 quotes define the why. Why am I offering this? Because sometimes you may need help with your choices & sometimes you may need shortcuts & principles that come from outside experience. It’s not about knowing the One True Way. It’s about having experience and knowledge that comes from 25 years of Doing The Things AND about being willing to share it with you. Sometimes you just need someone to watch you and help you with the choices.
