When I’m not at my desk working to create innovative nuptial stationery, I’m involved in local wedding organizations. After being a member for a few years, last year I sat on the board of the Boston Wedding Group, a comprehensive resource for couples marrying in New England. The group provides support to make wedding planning simple and enjoyable and to create an unforgettably beautiful affair.
As the education chair, it was my responsibility to coordinate monthly educational speakers and programs. As with anything, I took my job very seriously and, hopefully, added something fresh to the group. With my fellow board members, I worked to keep the members up to date on national wedding trends, energized by strong speakers and informed about new ways to think about their small businesses.
This week I was surprised, honored and sincerely flattered to receive the Boston Wedding Group’s 2014 ABC Award: Above and Beyond the Call of Duty. From the group’s president, “This award recognizes a member who has given generously of his/her time and talent to an important BWG function or project.”
Even though I no longer hold my board seat, it feels great to know that the behind-the-scenes work I do is welcome and appreciated. I’m thankful for the challenge and the amazing opportunity. Thank you to everyone who voted for me to receive this award.
