1. Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

Each & Every Detail is a small wedding planning firm in McKinney, Texas, that focuses on finding that particular niche that their clients love and expanding on it.  I started this business in 2006 and have focused on wedding planning from the beginning, offering couples everything from month of coordination to full service wedding planning and design help. Our mission is to be the key resource for our clients and champion them throughout the wedding planning process, while making sure they have fun and get to enjoy this special time in their lives. We love working with engaged couples that want to focus on having a great time and making the event special to them and their guests.

2. How did you get into wedding planning?

In 2005, I became the event manager at a local venue. This was my first job in the industry and it was an amazing experience. I absolutely fell in the love with the weddings, as those were the clients I ended up spending so much time with. After seeing the brides and grooms struggle through the planning process, I was determined to become a resource for them. I took my first certification course in 2006 and that’s how Each & Every Detail was born. Since then, I’ve continued my education with more certification training and I received my Certified Master Wedding Planner status just last year. All the planners who work in my firm are trained wedding planners, including our wedding day assistants.

3. What’s your favorite part of the job?

My favorite part of the job is meeting new and interesting people, learning about their lives, how their personalities “click” and pulling from that knowledge to customize their special day. I adore getting to know these couples and spending so much time working with them to create an amazing day simply to celebrate their love.

4. What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned, and would pass along to other new wedding planners just getting started?

Focus on developing your education, your ideas and your methods on how to serve your clients best, instead of worrying what everyone else is doing. The more you stay true to yourself and take care of your clients, the more you will attract the right clients for you and your past clients will advocate for you.

5. What are your hobbies or non-work-related activities?

My three favorite things to do in the world are spend time with my husband, read sci-fi/fantasy books and to storm chase. Living in Texas means I’m lucky enough to witness a lot of crazy weather, and when there’s a great storm, sometimes there’s nothing better than watching it from beginning to end. Kind of like a wedding.

6. Any great stories from working with a client?

I just finished up a wedding where myself and my team donated their services to Wish Upon a Wedding. This organization grants free weddings for couples where one or both of them are terminally ill through donations of products and services from wedding vendors. It was humbling to work for this couple, knowing that the wedding planning part of their day was usually the best part, considering the rest of it was dealing with illness, doctor visits, medication and just a daily struggle to live. We were honored to help them and were amazed at the generosity of the other wish granters. Wish Upon a Wedding is a national organization and I am now the Co-Volunteer Coordinator for the Houston Chapter. If you know anyone who could benefit from Wish Upon a Wedding’s services, or if someone wants to donate their time, products or services, please visit www.wishuponawedding.org.

Thank you Wendy. You can see her on WeddingPlannerLove or visit her site for more. We love your work and willingness to give back. :)
