About Us | Why We Do What We Do – Shelby and Joelle

Wedding planning and coordination are not career paths for the faint of heart.  Long nights, countless meetings, and extended email sessions are all parts of the job.   But it also has AMAZING rewards.  We get to help our brides with on the most special days of their lives and help them make lasting memories.  Since each one of us in the Magnificent Moments Team has a different reason for why we do what we do,  I thought it would be fun to share our personal stories.  Not only so you can get to know us a little better, but to see why we love our jobs and most importantly enjoy our jobs.   This month Shelby and Joelle share exactly why they choose to be wedding planners.

I am a lover of all things plans and schedules.  I get a sense of satisfaction marking things off a to-do list, the longer the list the better.  I think this is why I was drawn to wedding coordination. Taking all the moving pieces and putting them together into a final product is such a win for me.  And making my clients happy through the process is even better. My Type A personality shines when it sees a wedding ceremony or reception come together as all the little details fall into place.  Wedding after wedding, I get such a sense of pride in taking on all the stress and making the day easy for my brides. That is why I love what I do 🙂

Most people aren’t surprised when I tell them I am a wedding planner. It must be something about my personality that seems to fit the job! When I was 16, I had the opportunity to plan my high school’s prom. I fell in love with the process of casting a vision for the event and then seeing it come to life months later. While prom is different than a wedding, the design and planning process is what I fell in love with! I also love weddings, so it’s a great combination.

The wedding planning season is really exciting for brides and their families, but it can also be intimidating and stressful. I love to be able to take the burden of the details and planning and make certain that the planning process and wedding day is a dream come true with lots of happy memories! At the end of the wedding day, I always take a deep breath and feel thankful that I have the best job in the world!
