HEATHER VINTAGE 88, vintage wedding designer
Being an ETSY vendor encourages me to browse through the wedding section. I happened to stumble upon HeatherVintage88. An inspired wedding planner who specializes in personalized vintage items. She provides a service of finding venues, save the dates, wedding invitations, wedding stationery, and other wedding designs to give your wedding a unique touch. Here's some more insight into an ETSY wedding Vendor from Heather herself:
++ What inspired you to become a wedding planner?
My main inspiration for my business was creating that one of a kind wedding. I couldn't find what I was looking for when I was planning my own wedding…so I decided to design it instead. That rustic, chic , elegant but also soft vintage feeling. I realized that there are other brides out there like me also looking for that unique OOAK wedding as well..So, we work together to customize each wedding by theme, color, feeling, setting, location and more. Brides can also send me personal heirlooms to add to there bouquets to make them even more special. The outcome of combining all the special elements is so beautiful and makes each wedding unique on their own.
++ How long have you been working in this business?
I have been in this industry for 4 years now and loving it!
++ Can you tell me about one of your favorite weddings that you were a part of?
One of my favorite weddings that I was apart of was my very own. I got to feel what it feels like for all my wedding decorations to come to life. Now, I know what it feels like when my customers, brides and grooms buy my decorations and get to show them off on their own wedding day. It feels truly magical.
++ What are some of the most unusual requests that you’ve had from brides?
I haven't really had any unusual wedding requests yet but some very interesting colors that actually look so beautiful once combined. Its amazing what you learn!
++ What sets you apart from other wedding planners?
What sets me apart from other wedding planners and decorators is that I am very huge on customer service. I listen very well and take in every detail to what my clients request and create the wedding or event of their dreams. I want their event to be special and beautiful just as much as they do.
++ Do you find yourself being critical of other weddings that you attend that you didn’t plan?
I often find my self gathering ideas or inspiration. I think every wedding is unique to each bride & groom and it should show their unique personalities. I actually really enjoy seeing other weddings but of course I would have loved to help design it! :)
++ What is the most fulfilling part about the wedding planning process?
The most fulfilling part of wedding planning and decorating to me is seeing my customers happy. They come back and tell me how beautiful it was or leave me amazing feedback. I always take my feedback seriously and I am always trying to improve my business. It makes me so pleased that I designed something for their event that they loved!
++ Who are some of your favorite vendors and venues that you work with?
Some of my favorite vendors and venues are Awesome Blossoms, NewVintagePhotography, WeddingsbySteve, Elegant Touch of Strings, and Elliston Vineyards in Sunol,CA.
++ Thanks so much, HeatherVintage88 ++
