At the beginning of 2012, if you had asked me where I would see myself by the end of the year, I know with conviction that it would not be here – Berlyn Lai, Wedding Planner.
Instead I was but a clog in the corporate world, with high expectations and aspirations to climb the corporate ladder. But fate threw me a wrench, and decided to challenge me. Things happen for a reason. I truly believe that. Now with a bevy of skills in my back-pocket: organization skills, managing budgets and relationships, I’m ready for my new venture and I couldn’t be happier and more excited to make a dent in the world of wedding planning!
Why wedding planning? Turns out it’s my passion. Did I always know this? No. Six months ago, I was on my own wedding planning journey when fate dealt me a surprising unexpected card. This was less than two months before my own wedding date. I remained positive through support of my family and loved ones, and instead I focused on finalizing the details and plans to marry my husband. I had so much to look forward to.
I loved every part of wedding planning. When a friend asked me why don’t you get certified as a wedding planner and pursue this? I didn’t even think twice. Her question struck a chord in me that I knew in my gut what I needed to do next.
And so, here it is… the start of my new journey and the birth of BLoved Events.
