A year ago today, I opened the "doors" of Bespoken. What a year it has been! The past 365 days have been full of so much joy and laughter, as well as challenges and frustrations. If you had told me a year and a half ago that this little company would be in existence, I would have laughed so hard. But the amount of support and encouragement I've received, both near and far, has been mind blowing.
To the Bespoken brides and grooms (both past and current): THANK YOU! I can honestly say that I have enjoyed planning every. single. one. of your weddings during this past year. You have all been amazing, and what I love most is how you feel more like friends than clients. I love that even after your wedding, we still stay in touch. You still invite me to your birthday parties, your gender reveal parties, and your bonfires. You still send me Christmas cards. You still follow and support me on social media. And I love that you still text me :) I am honored to be a part of your life.
To the vendors: THANK YOU! You have no idea how much you've helped me and how much your encouragement has kept me afloat. I am so grateful to be on this ride with you, and am so excited to continue working with you.
To my friends and family: THANK YOU! It's been because of your support and your encouragement that I not only started this company, but that I've continued to keep it in business. You're my biggest cheerleaders and biggest supporters...and even when I stared at you and asked, "Why did you tell me this was a good idea?!", you kept on encouraging me to get me over the hump (you know who you are). Thank you. I am forever grateful to you and incredibly blessed to have you in my life.
I am so grateful to each of you for all of your love and support! I could not have done this without you.
Here's to year one...and the upcoming year two!! Cheers!! xoxo- Shannon
