Hi friends! This Friday, we’re doing something a little different – earlier this summer, I had the chance to capture some headshots for my friend and former HWP bride, Christina Alsip, for the launch of her website for her wedding planning business, Lovely Ever Afters! While we chatted over lavender mochas (thanks Village Grind!) we thought it might be fun – and beneficial – to give my readers a glimpse into the world of wedding planning and some thoughts on working with a wedding planner. So without further ado – Christina Alsip, everyone!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
What led you to wedding planning?
What’s your favorite part of being a planner?
Why should couples hire a wedding planner? What benefits does hiring a wedding planner offer a couple?
How should a couple go about selecting a wedding planner? How do you make sure you’re a good fit for brides & grooms on their wedding day?
If you could only offer one piece of advice to a bride- or groom-to-be, what would it be?
And just for fun… what trends do you see on the horizon for the wedding industry?
