Happy Birthday Five Grain Events!

Source

Today marks the one-year anniversary of Five Grain Events becoming an official business (or so says the State of Illinois) :) 

It's hard to believe that one year ago I wrote this blog entry.  Since then so much has happened!  Here's a brief list of Five Grain Events' accomplishments this year:

-Got a dedicated phone number {773-359-3106}, email address {joan at fivegrainevents dot com}, website, facebook page, and twitter handle for FGE

-Brought on an associate planner, Sara

-Blogged 16 "cool people" posts and met about a gazillion more that are still on my list to write about

-Left my full-time job (whoah!)

-Hosted a Tweet-Up for other vendors in the industry

-Was featured on Simply Jessie Photography's blog about business owners (a two-parter!  Part 1, Part 2)

-Was published on Style Me Pretty for Megan and Aaron's wedding  (thanks to the gorgeous work or Fleur and Laura Witherow)

-Wrote an article on how to select the perfect venue for ChicagoWeddingVenues.com

-Successfully planned/coordinated 11 events in 2010 (and blogged about many of them--still two more to come) and booked over 20 weddings for 2010/11/12

I could never have done all this without the support and love I got from all of you!  I can't thank you enough for helping me make my dreams come true.

Here's to an even more exciting 2011!

Love, love, love,

Joan
