While winter is still in full effect in Chicago, evidence of spring is starting to sprout up here and there….at least in the wedding industry. A couple of weeks ago, I became another add-on to an amazing boutique that just opened up in the River North area…Magnificent Milestones. Specializing in custom stationary, Kara Underwood has opened “a paperie with a Chicago accent” featuring her own stationary design, as well as fun gift items for a wedding or just the everyday passerby. I am so excited to be a part of Kara’s new endeavor.
The grand opening on January 13th was packed with support and shared enthusiasm. Capturing this event and also supplying all of the beautiful floral accents was one of my favorite Chicago florists…Hello Darling. Check out Natalie’s recent blog post on this event featuring the shop, her fantastic florals, and an always appreciated blurb about Reenie Rose.
Working with vendors like Natalie and Kara is such an amazing experience. It’s wonderful how we can work together on a professional level but then push that aside a bit and come together to support each other at a more personal level. I wish Kara all the best and know that the three of us entrepreneurial ladies will be working together sooner than you can say “Time to paint Kara’s bouquet!” Hmm….do I see a foreshadowing to a future post?
