A Longer Journey
Engagement & Events During COVID-19:
WE WILL MAKE IT!
TODAY THE SUN IS SHINING. For all of us here in the South Sound, this is MORE than a welcome appearance during our days in isolation. Maybe we can sit outside in the sun on the porch for a while, or plant something in the yard. Looking forward to just a few little things, gets me by each day without going all doom and gloom.
For our team, we completed the South Sound Wedding Show season with a HUGE HIT of a show at the Agriplex in Puyallup at the Washington State Fair Event Center at the end of February. We had a full house of almost 100 exhibitor booths and hundreds of couples, and guests in attendance. Our vendors were feeling the love and looking forward to a fabulous season of weddings ahead. But COVID-19 was already looming. I think I speak for many when I say that what tumbled from there, certainly knocked us off our feet.
But where has this virus and world-wide closure of life as we knew it left the wedding and event industry? And what if you were planning your big day for this spring or summer? We don’t have any easy answers. Heck, we don’t have the answers at all. All we really have to offer is the same thing we have always been here for… hope and continued joy in the journey. So, the journey to the big day may be longer… THAT’S OK! There is MUCH joy to be found in the journey. Embrace it and you can find a glimmer of hope in each day.
From here, we will continue sharing our articles, inspiration, and highlighting the fabulous vendors we have here in the South Sound. We hope you connect with them. We hope you find new inspiration. And most of all, we hope you find JOY in your longer journey!
Sending you all hugs, well wishes, and good vibes!
