Imagine, Create, Achieve

What is a perfect event?  A perfect wedding?  A perfect corporate event?  What would your answer be if asked?  

My answer would be one where all the planning is done by a professional and those involved are able to just be there at the appointed time, enjoy the event and not worry about a single thing……. And enjoy it with the complete knowledge that all details will be executed flawlessly. 
That is our goal at Events by Sherri.  A perfect event for you that you can actually enjoy!  Because it can’t be “perfect” if you don’t “enjoy” it!

When rebranding, I wanted to really capture what we at Events by Sherri do for our clients.  Sooooo, one morning at 3 a.m. (which is when I come up with some of our coolest ideas) while in Charlotte with my son, daughter-in-law and the grandbabies, it came to me.  The perfect new brand and I think our new logo says it all . . . . . .
“If you can Imagine it, we can Create it and Together we will Achieve it!”  Think about how amazing that is for you! Whether it’s your perfect wedding day, a corporate reception or a party “just because.”  Or maybe a fundraiser or a Festival.  We work WITH you to help you achieve your perfect event.  We help you “evolve” your event into what you envision it to be. And if you don’t know exactly what you want, then it’s our job to help you bring your vision from inside your head and heart to the reality of seeing it unfold. 

Our job at Events by Sherri is to help you Imagine it if you need help with that OR to take what you have Imagined and then we Create it together (or we can take care of all that for you).  Achieving it is then just a matter of pulling all the pieces together so that your event comes off without a hitch and is exactly as you Imagined it.  Full circle for your “perfect” event.  

So give us a call and “If you can Imagine it, we can Create it and Together we will Achieve it!”

Yamini and Robert

A cold but clear and sunny weekend dawned for Yamini and Robert!  From the moment we met with them, their commitment to each other and their respective families was evident. 
Yamini and her mother were very patient in walking us through the different traditions they wanted to incorporate into the weekend to honor her Hindu heritage.  And equally, we incorporated Western culture throughout for a perfect blending of the cultures of both families.  
From the Mehendi henna Ceremony on Friday to the blessings received by Yamini at the Haldi Ceremony Saturday morning, the families and friends of Yamini and Robert came together to bless this couple in many different ways!
We had a bit of an “uh oh” on Friday morning found over via text from their minister that her flight leaving NYC had been cancelled due to weather conditions there and that she and her husband were hopping in their car and driving all day to try to arrive in time for the rehearsal.  It’s 8 – 9 hours driving straight through!  So within about 10 minutes, we had Plan B all worked out and had communicated it to everyone so all were on the same page.  And as it turned out, Rev. Laurie Sue and Victor’s commitment to their couples was evident as they drove straight through, in almost blinding snowstorms for about 125 miles on the NJ/PA turnpike (and if you have EVER traveled either of those roads, you KNOW what they went through even without the snow) and made it to the rehearsal arriving only 10 minutes after we had started running through the logistics. 
The ceremony was a wonderful blend of Hindu and Western cultures with traditional vows mixed with the Seven Hindu Vows and the Lighting of the Sacred Fire. 
The reception was a party from start to finish with guests on the dance floor the entire evening.  Amazing food, cake and cupcakes for guests to enjoy, great dance tunes and lots of atmosphere, along with a couple that were so much in love with each other that they just glowed made for a great weekend from start to finish.  Yamini told us that it was “the best day of her life” which is exactly what we do our best to accomplish for our couples and their families. 

Enjoy a few pictures EBS was able to capture over the weekend, but keep an eye out for the amazing images Jeff Hofmann captured!
