Diann Valentine’s Best of 2010…

We’re happy to bring you this weekly tip from celebrity wedding planner and Wedding Paper Divas stationery designer, Diann Valentine. To shop for her designs, check out our Diann Valentine collection.

As this year winds down, I’ve been contemplating how I could possibly recap all of its highs and lows, successes and failures, triumphs and accomplishments. I used to be someone who constantly obsessed over achieving the next goal as soon as one was completed, forgetting to savor the moment, rest in the victory and enjoy the journey. So for the remainder of this year, I will go through my list of “Best Of” in various categories and random occurrences throughout my career.

This year has been filled with so much travel, as I have logged almost 100,000 miles in the air. In the midst of the craziness I paused for an intimate wedding for some long-time clients that have believed in the DRV brand for years. My reward is never in the size of the budget, the celebrity guest list or the media accolades, but rather it is the satisfaction of knowing that I have nailed an idea…helped a woman’s heart sing and managed to make a mark on the hearts of two people for the rest of their lives. Herein lies my Best Wedding of 2010.

I get a tremendous amount of credit for the magic that ‘we’ create, but it takes a small army to turn a regular Saturday night into a magical memory, so please allow me to thank some of the DRV team that helped turn this one into reality. Genia Abram, Greg Davis, Alan Dunn, Julie Dunn, Erin Earls, Amy Groth, Robert Hansen, Brent Jongeward , Kobie Kenon, Nathan Megaw, Ryan Megaw, Mike Shauger, Seth Santoro, Mickie Valentine, Riann Valentine and a host of many more hard-working busy bees!

So, do share, what is the project that meant the most to you this year?

Keep spreading the love,
