Working with My Best Friend

Here we are on the brink of wedding season! There is a certain flutter in my heart and excitement in my veins. Another year of being part of the best day in our lovely couples’ lives. Another year of feeling accomplished with all the hard work we put into our passion. But most of all, another year I get to work alongside my best friend!

When we meet with couples for the first time, a question that always comes up is “how did you two meet?” For those who have been around since the beginning, you know that Lorinda and I have known each other since we were 5 years old and have been best friends since we were 13. Thats over a decade of friendship! WOW!

Some would think it is a tricky thing being best friends with your business partner. Truth be told, it is all about finding a balance and rhythm when it comes time to get to work. Anyone who has seen Lorinda and I in action {i.e. “Wedding Mode”} can pick up on how close we are and how well we work together. Communication, at times, is unspoken. We have developed a way of talking in incomplete sentences because the other one fills in the gaps. Where one lacks, the other one is right there to help. I am a big picture person to a fault. Lorinda sees my ideas and brings me down to earth so we can come up with a realistic plan. Lorinda is naturally more organized than I am, so she has developed a way of keeping paperwork and schedules in line so we both succeed.

The best kind of friendship is one where you bring out the best in each other and I think that goes for business partnerships as well. I truly believe the quote “if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.” I love what I do and I am so fortunate to be able to work with my best friend. Thank you Lorinda for all of our experiences and adventures so far!

Here’s to another wedding season for the books!
