New Blog Opportunity for Sweetchic Events!

A few weeks ago, I was super excited when I was personally contacted by the site director of TheKnot.com. He offered me the opportunity to blog for their new Chicago Wedding Blog on their recently launched microsite, Chicago.weddings.com. I’m happy to announce that the blog went live this past weekend! Currently I am the only blogger (guinea pig!), and of course you’ll notice that the blog content is being pulled from this Sweetchic Events blog, but eventually they plan on adding more bloggers from other vendor categories. Stay tuned and wish me luck (coming up with good, consistent content is hard)! And check out the rest of the site – there is a wealth of information there!

Giveaway for a Deserving Chicago Couple!

Do you know of a wonderful, engaged couple that has recently encountered some hard times in the midst of planning their Chicago wedding?  Perhaps one of them was recently laid off, or there are some other extenuating circumstances that are making it difficult for them to handle all of the (numerous) wedding expenses…

Send them our way, we want to help! Led by Thomas of Slack Photography, a few Chicago-based wedding vendors and myself have teamed up to offer our services at no charge to one deserving couple. What’s on the line:

Requirements: The wedding must be taking place in Chicago/surrounding suburbs and in 2009 – we are hoping to help a couple in more immediate need!

How to apply: Send an email to slackphoto@hotmail.com with your story and why you need our help, along with a picture of you and your fiancé/fiancée. (You can also submit an application on behalf of a deserving couple.)

Deadline: None… we’ll accept applications until we find the right couple, but we don’t think this will take long! So get writing… and we’ll announce the winning couple when we find them!

The nitty gritty: The winning couple will ultimately be chosen by Slack Photography, and they may receive ALL or a PORTION of the above mentioned services, depending on the availability of the vendors. Participating vendors will do our best to accommodate the couple, and at the very least they will receive complimentary wedding photography by Slack Photography

Good luck, and please pass this exciting opportunity along!!

A New Headshot!

Over the weekend at the wedding of clients Lei Lei and Steven (more about them later when I have some pictures to share!), I had the pleasure of working with awesome photographers Laurie Peacock and her second shooter, Steve Koo. They rocked it, and I can’t wait to see the results!

Steve arrived at the reception first to capture the detail shots, and I had a minute to pose for a quick picture. Lo and behold, I have a new headshot! Thanks, Steve!
