2011 was a good year…correction it was (is) a GREAT year! I had the opportunity to work with some amazing clients on some of their most special events. Also, I have been the happiest (personally) I have been in many MANY years (despite some not happy occasions). Therefore I wanted to take a moment to publicly acknowledge some of the highlights of my year. Believe me this post would have been a mile longer than it already is so I decided to keep it short (kinda) and only list my top 10 (in no particular order).
1. Ana an Co.
FINALLY receiving professional pictures from one of our 2010 Events in Canada. Upon a return trip to Canada I was able to meet up with my former client and friend Analiza who took me out for the MOST AMAZING SEAFOOD MEAL EVER!!!!!!!. We were able to catch up on life after the wedding, her successes, her family and what’s in store for the Posadas’s in the near future (crossing fingers for them). And she was gracious enough to give me the pics from her wedding that I never received from the photographer ( grrrrrrr). When I finally sat to review the professional pics I stumbled upon this little cutie and fell in love. Oh…and guess what, she has since hired JunePumm Events AGAIN for a 2012 Event. yippeeee!
4. Casino Royale: Autasia’s Sweet 16
Every time I sat down to talk with Veronica (Ronnie) and Autasia it was 75% laughter and 25% business. I think Ronnie has missed her calling and should have been a comedian. Together we planned a Royale Casino-themed Sweet 16 for a well rounded, uber fabulous, 16 year old fashionista who was every bit deserving of this fabulous affair with flair. And I had a great time doing it. I miss them terribly, especially Ronnie’s commentary of which I will NOT repeat on my blog…let’s just say you had to be there. LOL. Even months after her event I continue to tell Ronnie that she is stuck with me now and I am saving a space on my planning calender to plan her wedding. Now THAT will be an EXTRA EXTRA Special even that i will NOT miss!
5. Rumble in the Jungle
Shevon and Kevin’s Jungle themed baby shower. Planning was smooth sailing however we did experience a little bump in the road when mommy went into early and very traumatic labor. For a minute there we wasn’t even sure if the event would happen on the scheduled date. But it did and the new mommy of a CUUUUUUTE baby boy sashayed into her baby shower in her fabulous shoes and excitement ( and I’m sure a little pain) plastered on her face. She was so grateful for the event and even daddy was pleasantly surprised with what he saw (whew…I was worried for a minute).
Sigh SO many good memories with this family. To date this has been JunePumm Events most popular event. There has been so many positive reactions to the pictures and the theme that I am still shocked. In hindsight, maybe MTV should have been called… LOL.
8. Team MarJay
If a destructive car accident on the highway that detained many of our bridal party wasn’t enough, we also had to deal with rain for an outdoor wedding and cocktail hour. Le sigh! But one…no…two monkey don’t stop no show. The show went on well into the night. Marcia and J.J’s wedding turned out to be just what the doctor ordered. Fun, Festive and Full of Laughs. I can’t wait to see the professional pictures from this wedding because Marcia made an absolutely stunning bride.
10. Having the opportunity to experience more amazing moments with YOU in 2012! BRING IT ON BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
