I Thee Swoon!

nullnullnull

Good morning, loves! Today I wanted to share with you some news that I am very excited about. My dear friend Tamra Sanford, some of you may know her as the fabulous woman behind the blog Walks with Bella, is officially launching her planning and event company Ever Swoon!

Passionate Planning. Extraordinary Experiences. Life Celebrated.

I have to tell you this girl is living my dream. A few years ago while planning my wedding I had a little dream/fantasy about leaving the beauty industry to create my own event company. Never happened for me but this amazing lady has done just that! She doesn't mind that I'm living vicariously through her. :)

Here's a little info about the company:

Our commitment is to produce a fabulous fete that is the toast of the town and culminates with you and your guests wishing the feeling of the day would never end.

We take the time to “dig” for the personality, flavor, and feeling behind the total experience you want to create which means taking into consideration all of the emotions and senses surrounding the details of the event.

We offer the following levels of services:

Full Service
Partial / a la carte
Month Coordination (aka Day of)
Hourly Consulting (in-person and/or virtual)

For these celebrations and events:

Weddings
Styling
Marriage Proposals
Private/Non-profit/Corporate

In a big city with big competition, we offer small town charm and service so Tamra, attends all personal meetings and is the main event planner at all events.

Over the past year I've had the great pleasure of getting to know Tamra outside of the blogging world and ended up gaining a new friend. Funny thing is we actually had quite a bit in common, both having worked in the beauty industry and share many connections, and we both share a love of fashion and beauty and NYC living. And I have to tell you besides being gorgeous inside and out and having such incredible style, she is an absolute sweetheart.

She planned every single fabulous detail of her wedding, this girl's got vision!, and I know she will bring such happiness and joy to any event that she plans. Oh and did you see that she'll even plan marriage proposals? How awesome is that?

I hope you will all stop by Ever Swoon today to show Tamra some love and to check out her fabulous new endeavor. You can also find her on twitter and send her thoughts/congrats using the hashtag #dancetildawn. She's even using my name to celebrate! :)

xoxo
