FROM OUR FOUNDER | BARBARA

I’ll admit when I started my “cute, little” wedding business - 10 years ago - I didn’t know a lot, and today, I'm still learning through trial and error; Through the help of people who do know; through the support of incredible people who want to see me succeed. 

Listen, I don’t claim to have all of the answers with A Wedding Loft. But I do know there are some things that can only come from experience and by weathering the storms. I wish there was a place like this when I was just starting out, because I could have REALLY used it. I’ve lost so many nights of sleep agonizing over a client. I’ve only cried 2x over difficult clients, but came really close, like 1000+ times. But then came experience and I matured into my business, ultimately realizing that as hard as I try, some things are just out of my control. The sun will rise again after a bad review, a financial blow, or a missed timeline. And we take those lessons and carry them with us, making us better for the next battle. 

So yes, I wish a place like A Wedding Loft existed so I could get some guidance on things I didn’t know. A place that is completely supportive and safe for small business owners; A place that embraces both industry experts & those that are a little more green. 

So my GOAL with A Wedding Loft is to create a positive environment for all of us - that won’t tolerate negativity and judgement or use the platform to intimidate. We want the younger pros to know it’s ok to ask for help. It’s ok to admit you’re scared and have absolutely zero idea what you’re doing. 

With our mentoring groups and 1:1s, “lesson learned” sessions, teach a skill/ learn a skill mentality, or a seminar that teaches you how to spend $ on advertising. Personally, I want to attend a braiding workshop. 

With 2 daughters, I’ve made it a goal for an AWL workshop to teach me how to do a freakin’ French braid. (Why is it so hard?!?!) 

I just understand how hard and scary it can be to run a wedding business and not know what my next move is. I just think there needs to be a PHYSICAL place for us all to go that feels safe and warm. A place to make those hard mistakes but then be lifted back up by our support system. 

So our wish for you is to see our vision. To understand why we believe in this idea wholeheartedly and we truly hope that you believe in this concept enough to become a member of this growing, empowering community.
