Three years ago, Jamie and I decided to combine our freelance wedding businesses. We got our first client inquiry minutes after launching our first website (seriously!), and we haven’t stopped moving since.
Last year was our busiest year yet, and from March through November we worked almost every weekend. It wasn’t until our final wedding at the end of November that we stopped to breathe and had a little “OMG, how did we do all that?!” moment. In February, the birth of my baby gave us the perfect opportunity to take a pause, celebrate the previous year, and decide how to tackle 2015.
And what we decided was to focus on the things we LOVE to do, and to do them in a way that allows more time with less clients, and more time with our families.
That means more design, more full service packages, and more florals.
It also means a new brand that reflects the changes we’re making and the direction we’ve sort of naturally been heading for the past year. We have so much love for Pink Peony Planning & Design because it propelled us into this crazy-awesome event world, but we’re really, really excited for State & Arrow Design Co.!
State & Arrow is a nod to one of our favorite places and a symbol of our friendship. We know that, at the end of the day, our dynamic as best friends is a big part of what sets us apart. This brand feels special, and it feels like us.
We’re 100% jazzed for this next part of the adventure, and we’re excited to have more time to share all of the pretty things we get to work on. Before we go, here are a few sneak peeks of our favorite projects from 2014. More to come!
