Wow! We are excited about today being International Womens Day! I’ve always celebrated being a woman on a daily basis. There are just so many cool things about being a woman, one of them being that we are multi-faceted creatures.
That being said, we’d like to pay tribute to some amazing women in our favorite arena: The Wedding Industry. Here are some phenomenal ladies that found their passion and ran with it! They inspire us each day and make us work harder to improve in our business and in our overall lives! Today we salute each of you!!!
