The branding for the Lynda Marie companies have really been ‘a long time coming’ – the Couture Millinery company in particular! And if you asked any one of the people in my life who have been along for the ride – they might even say that’s a bit of an understatement!
I just needed it to feel ‘right’ and look ‘right’ – EVERY aspect of it! So it’s taken a bit of time. But WE got there! And by ‘we’ I mean a whole team of people that were involved in creating the new ‘Lynda Marie’ websites.
I decided that I needed to honour my amazing crew who have worked so hard and throw a bit of a celebration of the whole feat – and for sticking it out with me! And so we had a bit of a party (adorned of course with fabulous party hats) to congratulate each other on a job REALLY well done!! And showcase the work! And the websites! And the talent! The party itself – took on a whole new team to pull together what I envisioned as a proper way to THANK the people in my life… So here we are! The evening soiree was hosted at my favourite salon in town – DM & Company. Definitely an event I will not soon forget! There are no words adequate to describe the gratitude I have for Dwane & Lindsey, owners of DM, not only for welcoming us all into their space but for all the support I’ve received over the years. Dwane has been on this journey with me longer than anyone (well maybe besides my family). So he knows!
Oh – the food by Toque Catering was divine!
The guest list included some fantastic vendors that I’ve had the pleasure of working with, media, clients, wonderful friends, some of my amazing family (special mention to my Granny – you’re a true gem!) and (most of) my incredible team that was along for the ride of creating the overall branding of ‘Lynda Marie’.
