I’ve been on a hiatus from well doing much of anything in regards to blogging. Once the shelter in place orders starting coming down in Colorado that basically brought everyone and everything to a screeching halt. I’ve been busy re-scheduling weddings and other events when they can be on our calendar. For the most part it has worked out great! We’ve been really lucky this year to have most of our events scheduled at one particular venue and since they are working with clients on re-booking dates we’ve been able to find dates that work out for both us and in most cases my husband’s DJ company, Digital DJ who is also the disc jockey for most of those events. I’m so saddened to hear that couples are having to deal with this situation that has been unprecedented in the 20 years that I’ve been in business. Even 9/11 wasn’t this challenging! At this point everything is being addressed month to month. June events were taken care of and re-booked this month and if the same thing has to happen in July then they will be re-booked in June. We appreciate everyone’s patience while we navigate this situation with you. We are still excited to be a part of your big day no matter when that will happen!
In the meantime we are just doing some housekeeping stuff and enjoying the slower pace of life. Mike and I have been hunkered down at our home since mid-March. This means he’s been diligently working on my “Honey Do” list with projects around the house that have been neglected a lot due to how busy our schedules usually are. We’ve cleaned out our storage room and garage of all our baby gear! Yes, baby stuff! Our kids are 7 and 5! That’s how long I’ve been hoarding that stuff! We’ve stripped and re-stained our deck, planted our garden, set up our above ground pool and countless other smaller projects around the home like flushed out our water heater (a lot of people don’t know you should do that every year for more longevity of your water heater) and more! Since June will be the first time in probably 15 years we don’t have much in the way of work we will do a couple more big projects, enjoy some fun summertime activities with our kids and work on streamlining some of our business practices that I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. We’ll keep crossing our fingers that events will go forward from July on.
We hope everyone is staying safe and that maybe Colorado can start to get back to normal on some level. Remember we are all doing our part to slow the spread of the virus, even those planning one of the best days of their lives! I remember what it was like to plan this type of event. The stresses of planning a wedding in a normal year can be over whelming, but here’s my thought on this…. At one point I remember looking at my husband (then fiance) and saying to him we should’ve just eloped! There were so many behind the scene things going on, dealing with people who can’t make it, seating arrangements with divorce variations, unhelpful wedding party members and more. But in the end I just let it all go. I told people they could sit where ever they wanted, I didn’t sweat the small stuff and the parental units decided to get a long for our special day. We have memories of one of the best days ever in our lives that we got to share with everyone we loved. Some of those people are no longer with us so I cherish the moments more than ever. If you have to postpone just realize that the people who want to be there and can be there will come. If they can’t they will be there in spirit and you can share your beautiful photos/video with them afterwards. We’ll get through this together! Best wishes and we’ll see you on the other side of this.
