And So It Begins...

Being new to the industry is definitely a challenge. I have just graduated from college and starting a business from the ground up with LOTS of competition in the area is intimidating and really quite nerve-wracking. Getting everything from the tax i.d. number to the business license and even picking colors and a theme for my website is all part of this crazy process when opening a new company!

I have just recently graduated from the Event Planning & Destination Tourism program in Toronto, and I just feel like I'm ready to burst at the seams! From school and now to joining the workforce is a feeling that I cannot explain. It is something that I have always looked forward to, but I don't think I would have been able to accomplish what I already have had the opportunity to. I completed various internships, namely with the Make A Wish Canada Foundation, which had to have been one of the best experiences I've ever had. The team at that location was really great to work with and I loved my fellow interns! I have learned a lot throughout the years, but now it is my time to shine!

Starting Sweetface with my sister has been amazing. I could not have asked for a better first wedding season. We marveled at making brides/grooms happy (which is always our priority), but it was also seeing how happy their families were that made us feel proud. Even with the long hours, high stress, and fatigue, I still cannot ask to work in a different industry. 

I love what I do and I don't know if too many people in this world can say that. It is just wonderful, and I could not be happier with what we have accomplished yet this far!
