September 1, 2019 was a beautiful sunny day. The day our dream of having a fly fishing wedding on the Green River in the Bridger-Teton National Forest became a reality.
The days, weeks, and months leading up to the wedding were nothing less than crazy and hectic. I was working a full-time job, planning our wedding, and attempting to coordinated it all. We were on a tight budget and pulling off our vision wasn't going to be easy. Hiring an event planner wasn't an option and as an event planner myself, I can say that planning and coordinating your own wedding is nothing like planning someone else's.
As the wedding day approached, we were sadly ready for it to be done. We were exhausted and at that point we wished we had just eloped. Looking back, we are thankful we had a wedding, but we would have definitely done things differently.
For many years I had dreamed of being an event planner. However, the timing never felt right. At the time I was living in Colorado and the market was so saturated with event planners that I never felt it was wise to begin there. Last February, my now husband and I moved to Pinedale, Wyoming, a small town gem. While planning our wedding, I knew I wanted to start my own event planning business right here in the Heart of the Wind River Range.
On November 1st, 2019, I grand opened Sacred Rim Event Planning with a very special ribbon cutting at the Sublette County Chamber of Commerce. Since that day, I have been enjoying every minute of officially being an event planner. I feel so incredibly blessed to have this opportunity to plan beautiful events in the Wind River Range.
One morning in November, I woke up with a crazy idea to give away a full event planning package to a couple getting married in 2020. People thought I was crazy to be giving away such a huge gift, but I get it. I've been there when the budget was small and pulling together a dream wedding seemed like just that, a dream.
To me, being an event planner is not just bringing in income to help support my family, even though that is absolutely important. Being an event planner is helping bring to life those dream events people hold close to their hearts. I desire nothing more than to bring together amazing vendors and pull off those dream events that bring smiles, happy tears, and sweet memories people will cherish for a lifetime.
This Christmas, Sacred Rim Event Planning is so excited to be offering the Ultimate Christmas Giveaway. People in the community have the opportunity to vote for a couple getting married in 2020 to win a Full Wedding Planning Package & Christmas Gift Basket. On Christmas Eve, we will choose the winner.
