The Engaged Event-Planning a MARRIAGE more beautiful than your WEDDING
This time last year, my husband and I were putting the final details on the very first Engaged Event. This was a long time coming, a dream that at times we never thought would come to fruition. There were dozens of logistical details that we just weren’t sure if we could work them all out. Not to mention the cost of this event. We didn’t want to spend the $20,000+ dollars to make this event happen, so what if we didn’t find Sponsors and we were out a lot of money? But we kept on walking in obedience to something the Lord put on our hearts, and it has been incredible to watch how He provided.
The Engaged Event is a one day event that exists for engaged couples to plan a MARRIAGE more beautiful than their WEDDING. I have been a wedding planner for over 13+ years and I have seen so many couples spend more time planning the wedding and forgetting that the wedding is all about the marriage.
Our very first event was in March 2019 at Coles Garden in OKC and it truly was amazing.
It was an icy/snowy day in March and we thought no one would show up and brave the weather. But they did! I remember walking around the room thinking “I can’t believe this is happening. I can’t believe people actually signed up and are here.”
We sent a survey to all of the engaged couples to get their feedback and we received a lot of good feedback. (We did get negative feedback that we took as positive feedback because negative feedback is a good thing. It helps us adjust and change things for the next event to make it better).
All of that to say, we took that feedback and announced the second event that was in October of 2019. It was another great event and this event has continued to grow ever since.
Now it is 2020 and we are planning the 2020 events. Our first event is in Edmond, Oklahoma at the incredible Baumberhof venue.
And now we are super excited to announce that we are expanding outside of the OKC area. At the end of March, we will be at The Barn on Grace Hill near Wichita, Kansas. It is a beautiful venue and we are so excited to have this event there.
Now we are hard at work on the Fall 2020 events and they are going to be at some incredible venues outside of Oklahoma. Can’t wait to announce more!
