Fearon May Events
Tell us a little about your company? Fearon May Events is an event planning and wedding design company.
When did you establish your business? May 2010 but I have been in the wedding industry for over 11 years.
What sets you apart from your competition? We create weddings that are personal and designed to fit the bride and groom’s personality, interest and style.
Where do you find inspiration? I love Pinterest and I also find inspiration, believe it or not, from wandering around Home Goods.
What trend do you see coming for weddings this year? A big trend I see this year is creative menus. I think more brides and grooms are moving away from the traditional beef and chicken to food stations, tacos and hamburgers especially from food trucks. I also see a creativeness with desserts such as gourmet popsicles and pushup cake pops.
Do you regularly blog? If so, what’s your blog site? I blog with really important stuff, not so much everyday. You can read my blog here.
Do you Facebook? Yes, you can “like” me on Facebook here.
What’s your favorite local restaurant? I love Jack’s Urban Eats.
What’s your favorite local charity? I am doing an event for 1st Touch Foundation & The Athlete’s Closet. It’s a great organization.
What is your favorite fun thing to do locally? I love to get drinks with friends. I am a socialite and love to meet and mingle with other wedding professionals.
What are you most grateful for in life? I am very grateful for a loving husband that is very supportive of everything that I do and is always there for me.
What advice would you can give to brides and grooms getting married today? Get a videographer!!!! The day goes by so fast and at the end of the day all you have left are your wedding pictures. Most couples don’t think of a videographer as something they HAVE to have and decide not to have it. Every bride and groom that I know who did not have a videographer regret it so much. Pictures are wonderful but they only capture a moment. Video you actually get to hear the words, music and experience of you wedding day. Here your father’s speech, watch your first dance, and relive the event of your life over and over. My husband and I watch our wedding video every year on our anniversary.
