Stephanie Shaul Events: A New Website!

ssewebsite1

It is with GREAT happiness and joy that I officially introduce to you the brand new Stephanie Shaul Events website!!! Stephanie Shaul Events now (finally!) lives at stephanieshaul.com, and I couldn’t be prouder or more thrilled to share it with you today! My new website feels like an actual breath of fresh air, and it truly feels like my brand and my business’ front porch and home. Welcome, y’all, and come on in!

I’d absolutely love for you to join in the excitement and take a peek at the new SSE website, one that I’m insanely proud to share with the world. It feels so happy and welcoming, so representative of my brand, so “me” — and showcases the business that I’ve built, the weddings that I’ve planned and designed, and the joyful, meaningful, gorgeous wedding days that I’ve had the honor of being a part of!

Every beautiful image is updated, every ounce of text reflects my heart, my brand, and how far I’ve come, so many beloved weddings are featured on it, the layout and formatting is refreshed and updated, and it is hosted through a new site (Showit!). This website is a long time coming and has been in the works for longer than I care to admit (ha!), and every single time I look at my new website and pore over its content and pages, I beam giddily and squeal! (Seriously, ask Rob — I am ecstatic!) I couldn’t be prouder or more excited to share it with future clients, past clients, my family and friends, and all of you!

I cannot thank my dear friend Kyla Mary enough for her incredible help, expertise, design eye, attention to detail, encouragement, and web design knowledge and for essentially building this entire website for me. She has been an incredible blessing in making this dream happen, and she just gets me! Kyla, thank you for pouring your heart into this website and for bringing this vision to life so exquisitely and so perfectly. You are a true designer, a gem of a friend, a website aficionado, and such a treasure. I can’t thank you enough for creating and executing this beautiful new site! (If you’re in the market for a new website, please reach out to Kyla!)

Endless thanks to my amazing dad, as I couldn’t do this without him! He’s been my go-to tech and website guy since day one, and his wisdom is unending and unparalleled. Daddy, thank you for all of your endless help and expertise in bringing all of my websites to life and for loving and supporting me so well! You’re the greatest.

Thank YOU all (the amazing readers, family, friends, past + current + future clients, the incredible photographers and other vendors, and my wonderful husband!) for all of the ways that you inspire me — and support, encourage, and cheer me on. I am endlessly thankful, that’s for sure!

Have fun checking out all of the beautiful new pages, images, and content at stephanieshaul.com!! I’ve shared a few sneak peeks here, but there is so much beauty to see on my new website. I’d love to hear what you think, so be sure to leave me a comment (and feel free to share)!

September 2017 Goals

September is here, friends! I always associate September with school starting back up, the impending arrival of autumn, and getting back into routines and rhythms (and wedding season!). How did your August go? I shared all that we were up to in August yesterday, and I also loved reviewing my August goals, which I happily crossed most everything off the list last month! We had fun trips to the mountains of North Carolina with lots of our couple friends, as well as a weekend in the sunshine at Carolina Beach. It was a productive yet relaxing and fun month before the craziness of the fall wedding season arrives, and I tried to use my time in August wisely. It’s also our five month wedding anniversary today, which always coincides perfectly with the renewal of each month!!

As you’re reading this, I’m busy finishing packing for our back-to-back trips to NYC to visit my sister and brother-in-law (and go to the US Open!), and then we’re heading straight to the Outer Banks for the rest of the week! You can follow along on our family vacation over on Instagram, if you’d like to. And once we return… wedding season is most definitely in full swing with so much goodness on the radar. Here’s to our last big hurrah of Summer 2017!

Personal Goals

  1. Enjoy every moment of our vacation week in NYC + OBX! Savor loads of quality time with our families, enjoy the juxtaposing settings of the city + the beach, and relax as much as possible.
  2. Create (and share) a Fall 2017 to-do list.
  3. Celebrate Rob’s birthday with great excitement and love him well. I have a surprise or two up my sleeves!
  4. Finish planning and go on our anniversary getaway to one of my very favorite destinations! Our one year engagement anniversary and six month wedding anniversary are the same day, and we plan on celebrating this wholeheartedly.
  5. Serve selflessly and joyfully at our church and with the child development center at the Raleigh Rescue Mission.
  6. Decorate our first married home for fall and think of some small but fun ways to celebrate the season!
  7. Leave my phone in another room when we’re home at night.
  8. Enjoy the slightly cooler weather by eating dinners at home outside, going on regular evening walks, and playing tennis.
  9. Love on and serve one of our married/young parent friends well by baby-sitting so they can go on a date night! This is something we really want to do much more often.

Business

  1. Make the full switch over to my new website! It is quite the process changing everyyyything over to Stephanie Shaul Events.
  2. Share SO much more of our wedding!! This both personal + business… and oh so very exciting!
  3. Celebrate and serve my couples well in their season of engagement.
  4. Plan ahead as much as possible for my Fall 2017 weddings so that I set myself up well for October and November.
  5. Book two new 2018 weddings.

How can I encourage you in your goals or cheer you on? What are you most excited for in the coming month?  I’m still loving summertime, and I can’t wait to spend a long week in NYC and the Outer Banks before returning to work!!
