Hi, I am Hailey Aertker, one of the Lead Event Planners here at Southern Approach!
My career in event planning began after planning my dad’s 50th birthday party in 2017. After planning this milestone event for one of my closest family members I realized there is no better feeling than helping someone achieve their dream event, and celebrating those joyful moments of their lives!
If you’re planning your wedding during the coronavirus pandemic then you have likely experienced every emotion on the spectrum. I’m here to declare: FEEL YOUR FEELINGS!! It’s ok to feel however you’re feeling. Mad, angry, sad, frustrated? It’s OK.
BUT: this is not the end. It’s not over. The fat lady has not begun to sing! Because this will pass and we will get through this together and our celebrations will be back in full swing soon.
Planning Kelly + James’ wedding was so special for us! Kelly’s parents own a plant nursery in Amite, LA, and their nearby home was the beautiful setting for their wedding. I LOVE planning weddings at a private residence. It brings a level of personality and unique challenges that you can’t get with any other wedding venue.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever been personally victimized by Regina George! Wait…. sorry, let’s try that again!
Raise your hand if you’ve ever been ghosted by a wedding vendor. Now raise your hand if you’ve ever ghosted a wedding vendor. Looks like we’ve got some wedding couple and vendor crime here!
