Hey there lovelies!!!
Last weekend I had the opportunity to photograph a launch party for an incredible wedding planner named, Chante Gulley, to celebrate the opening of her new wedding planning business, Forever Taeken Wedding and Events!!! I met Chante on a networking group on Facebook a couple of months ago!!! We met for coffee at The Overflowing Cup in Murrieta, California a couple weeks later and totally hit it off! I was completely star struck by Chante when I first met her with all the experience she’s had planning and coordinating weddings for her friends and family prior to officially opening her business along with the fact that she’s a certified wedding planner through The Marriott hotels and has been working with them for several years! Like I said, she’s INCREDIBLE! 😀 I love how fun, bubbly, positive, inspiring, and caring she is for everyone she works with or is close to!
Follow her on social media and see for yourself how amazing she is!!!
Chante held her launch party at The Weathered Feather in downtown Riverside, CA! I had the chance to walk around that amazing store for a couple hours before the start of the party and to take in all of the incredible products they have for sale there! If you haven’t had the chance yet to visit The Weathered Feather then I HIGHLY recommend it!! If you love rustic signs and adorable hand crafted decor pieces, then you’re going to LOVE love love this adorable store in Riverside!!!! Throughout the night everyone at the part commented how they’d love to take EVERYTHING home to decorate their homes with or that they could live in this store and be perfectly happy!!! It’s that awesome!!!
Check them out on social media:
