July 2016 Goals


Happy July, y’all! The 4th of July is just around the corner (one of my all-time favorite holidays!), wedding season is in full swing, & summertime is oh so sweet! I can’t believe 2016 if officially halfway over, but I’m trying to soak in + savor it all. Give me all the fresh peaches + berries, please!!

I traveled to Charleston (venue walk-through + engagement session), Carolina Beach (day trip with Rob), and Charlotte (Jordan + Errett’s wedding) this past month, and July holds travels to Ohio (our 4th of July tradition!), Richmond (reunion with best friends), Portsmouth, VA (venue walk-through), another trip to the beach, and a huge wedding in Chapel Hill! June was also filled with lots of tennis, pool time, grilling out/cookouts, Durham Bulls game, fun times with friends, lots of girls nights + wine nights, learning how to shag to beach music, and baby showers/babies on the way for close friends!

In terms of work, June held a wonderful, beautiful, meaningful wedding in Charlotte for Jordan and Errett, The School of Styling Summer Bash, lots of day-long wedding planning meetings with brides who traveled into town, cake + catering tastings, lots of timelines, prep for July weddings, a trip to Charleston, a few mentoring + coaching sessions, great coffee dates, and continuing to work with my fabulous intern, Janna! Have you noticed my blog has been brought back to life?!

Personal Goals

  1. Cook a new seasonal recipe + make ice cream from scratch
  2. Introduce Rob to ALL of my family & celebrate the 4th of July in Ohio (the best!) – seriously cannot wait for our trip up north!
  3. Host a cocktail party/game night
  4. Continue crossing things off our summer bucket list
  5. Go to an outdoor movie and to Fridays on the Front Porch at the Carolina Inn
  6. Really be intentional about the friendships and relationships in my life, especially in the midst of a busy season (sending snail mail, planning friend dates, little surprises, praying for friends)
  7. “He must become greater; I must become less.” – John 3:30

Business Goals

  1. Execute a flawless wedding for Kate & Eric in Chapel Hill at the Chapel of the Cross + Carolina Inn
  2. Officially introduce my intern, Janna, on my blog + have her assist at her first wedding with me
  3. Have two more editorial shoots featured/published (after doing 15 in six months, these are the last 2 to submit!)
  4. Update my business journal regularly
  5. Celebrate one year of taking Stephanie Scholl Events full time!!
  6. Continue booking 2017 brides & strategize my marketing

I’d love to know – do you have any goals set for the month as July kicks off?! I can’t wait for the 4th of July celebrations, beginning now!

2015 4th of July in Ohio!
