I’ve always been the girl who was worried about finding love. I constantly worried over if the person that I was with was all in or asking myself, “why am I not all in?” All of that changed when I met Adam. We worked together for 2 years before we dated, but in that time I got to know the most loyal, caring, intelligent and intensely funny person I had ever met. But, it took month long separation when we were put on different projects made me realize that my respect for this man had grown into something else.
Three months later, after I bit the bullet and told him how I felt, we started dating. I kept waiting for the familiar feeling of doubt to show up, but it never came. And the longer we were together the more those thoughts faded into the background. I knew I was all in.
On our one year anniversary, I asked another question. I asked Adam to move in with me. He agreed and we moved in together in June 2014. I also told him that I was done asking questions; the next one was his turn.
After living together for a few months, we had many conversations about kids, where we would live and what we wanted out of our lives, both individually and as a team. We talked about marriage, but we never talked about a proposal or a wedding. We both knew each other wanted to get married and wanted to have a wedding, but we never talked about it in any detail. I think the marriage part was much more exciting that we both glossed over that event.
That is probably why I was so utter shocked when on Christmas morning, Adam got down one knee after our little couple’s present exchange, pulled out a little black box and asked me to marry him. I hyperventilated, stuck out my hand, looked at him through teary eyes and finally squeaked, “Yes!” I’m engaged to the man of my dreams, we are getting married next September and I think I’m still shaking.
Branding Your Event
Happy Friday everyone! Today on the blog I would like to discuss a concept that is fairly new to the social side of the event industry, but is something that we here at Whim feel very strongly about, and that is event branding.
Event branding is a concept that is strongly associated with corporate events, but at Whim we believe that every love story is its own brand because it is unique to the couple. The time that you’ve spent living your love story is your unique stamp, and our creative design seeks to transform that into a brand that you can show off in the time leading up to the main event, your wedding day.
We want to bring your love story to life in an unforgettable way. Whim creates custom solutions for save the dates, and invitations, but your branding doesn’t have to stop there. For the events leading up to your wedding, we have created tailored water bottle labels, favour tags, directional signage, itineraries and menus. We provide this service for events of all kinds, from engagement parties, shoots and videos to bridal showers and bachelor/bachelorette parties to weddings and baby showers.
Consistency is the key to a successful, visually appealing event, and this includes the printing that your guests see around them. We love the little details that make an event successful, and we would love to sit with you and go over the details of your next event to create a branding package that will blow your guests away. Your love is a rare and beautiful story, and your wedding day presents an opportunity to capture the essence of it. We are excited and honoured to be the architect of those dreams.
