Here she is in all her glory.
Alaina Beckett, with CNY Magazine, reached out to us at the beginning of November 2020 as they started their interviews for the Winter issue of The Good Life CNY. I was beyond excited that they reached out to TC for an interview to be featured as the wedding planner for their upcoming issue. So, we scheduled our call!
As soon as I got on the phone with Alaina, it didn’t feel like an interview. It felt like a natural conversation, as do most of my business calls because I’m so passionate about this industry that information and excitement just flow right out of me.
We spent over an hour talking about all things wedding planning during a global pandemic, how we have shifted gears over the past year, what we’ve provided for our couples, and beyond! It was truly an exhilarating conversation and got me thinking how much we’ve GIVEN BACK to the wedding and event community over the past year. It’s remarkable and I’m so proud of all that we’ve been able to provide.
Our fully styled intimate nuptials were the hit of 2020 and received so much awareness and recognition across a variety of platforms and publications. Alaina knew this was definitely something that should be covered but also, we wanted to give practical advice to The Good Life CNY readers on planning a wedding during a global pandemic, and so we did.
We covered everything from the ceremony and reception, to design & décor, COVID protocols, and more! Everything that couples should be aware of when planning their backyard wedding or an intimate nuptial. And although they couldn’t fit EVERYTHING we talked about during our interview, it was nice to see how much they were able to include. We were so honored to be a part of it.
When I opened the magazine for the first time, I was shocked to see our name appear so often. It was a big win for us, especially after such a trying year navigating business during a pandemic.
