The move from Canada to Florida was a big one.
I lived many other places over ten years since calling Florida home. College in Michigan, teaching overseas in China, and then living in Ontario with my new husband.
It was April 10th of 2013, I was driving through a blizzard when I got the news of Ben's sign back. Warm, sunny, Florida was sounding pretty good.
As I transitioned my business from Toronto to Florida that year, it was a lonely season. Sad farewells to clients, friends, and family.
As I began reaching out to new wedding industry professionals, there was one amazing artist who kindly struck up a friendship with me. We admired each other's work through the virtual magic of Facebook and Instagram. Then, she even referred me my first Florida couple.
Stephanie of FH Weddings has been everything kind and generous in the midst of running her own amazing floral empire. Marty is her husband and business partner, full of warmth and humor.
As we wander the quaint sidewalks of Downtown St. Pete, Stephanie and I reminisce over our first meeting. They laugh as they tell me tales of their college days, young and in love.
Stephanie poses effortlessly, full of all the Grace Kelly elegance. Her handsome Marty makes her laugh and blush.
Stephanie inspires me to be more dedicated while brimming with kindness. I am so honored to work alongside someone of this caliber. She is total "Girl Boss Goals".
