We view success a little differently than a lot of people or companies. We turned down some great opportunities, and walked away from a very comfortable life to start own our little company because there was something we valued more than the number of jobs we did, our bank balance, or the things surrounding us. We value relationships. We want the time to invest into each client, our community, and each other. It's not just about providing a service. It's about making someone's life a little better in the process.
Also, on a more practical side, when trying to budget such a huge event and struggling to manage umpteen Pinterest boards and a zillion suggestions/requests from well-meaning loved ones, try to remember what is really going to last. 10, 20, or even 50 years later, what will you still carry with you from that day? I got married 5 years ago, and I barely remember what we ate. My wedding dress is at the bottom of a trunk, and I don't really care about my party favours anymore. What I see every day is our photographs displayed in our home, my wedding band, and the man I love. Prioritize what will last.
