What has MJK Events, LLC done in the last decade?
First and foremost, MJK Events opened its doors in 2009. I started my certification program in late 2008 with ABC, Association of Bridal Consultants. I had been sent to this meeting by my daughter's ballroom dance instructor Chad Lakridis to check out the organization for him. I heard about wedding planning and felt I would enjoy the creativity, party/wedding planning and helping people have a beautiful event and get to enjoy the event with their family, friends and guests.
My first wedding was an Indian wedding. I had been advised to pass but I felt like I could tackle and learn from it. I was excited about learning the cultural traditions and getting my first wedding completed. It was a huge event, I did learn a lot about Indian weddings and about myself.
Even though my kids were 13 and 9, I was still focused on my family and their needs first and then business. Know my children are grown adults and it is time to build my business. Along the way, I have decided to add some corporate/social parties in the mix with the weddings.
Here is a sampling of some of the weddings/events I have planned.
The wedding business has changed so much in these 10 years. When I started, we had just hit a recession and it was probably not the ideal time to start this type of business. I look forward to learning and staying ahead of the wedding market. I do this by listening to podcasts, reading blogs and attending conferences/networking events. Here's to 2020! My mantra for 2020 incorporates my previous words for the year, is "Cultivating Transformation to Find Clarity".
Let's get this!
