What do you do for GHGH and how long have you been involved?
I am the secretary and the VP of our brand new Fundraising Team. So many new and awesome events will be coming your way this year!!


What brought you to GHGH?
Barbie Hull 🙂 She is one of the founders of GHGH and her passion for the organization drew me in. I loved the organization the minute I heard about it and knew that I had to be a part of it. I have been to every event, but this will be my 3 year involved!! 

What is your favorite part of your experience with GHGH?
The fact that it is 100% volunteer based!! So many amazing guys and gals donate their passion and time to help raise money for our fabulous beneficiaries. I love that we raise funds that will help make a difference in people’s lives.


What is your favorite part of the wedding industry?
My experience has been overwhelmingly positive!! I feel like it is such a close knit community and everyone is willing to help out, lend a hand and give advice.


You own  :: Heathoriginal  . What drew you to your job?
The fact that I get to create unique items that will add meaning and charm to a persons special day!! I have always done these things anyway, but it is truly a dream that I now get to do it for a living

Tell us the most unique thing you saw at a wedding, or were asked to do for a wedding?
Ask Holly-Kate & Company!! They are always sending me awesome requests for custom décor. The best part of my job is that I get to do unique things. My couples are incredibly creative and find so many ways to incorporate themselves into their weddings. It is just the icing on the cake when I get to make invitations, banners, favors, table numbers, escort boards, etc that have so much meaning in a couples life together.


Do you have any insider secrets to tell our brides to make their planning / enjoying of their wedding easier?
I always think that is best to just be yourself and don’t sweat the small stuff.

Are you married? And if you are, what was your favorite part of your wedding or what would you have done differently?
I am married and I LOVED everything about my wedding!! So many friends and family were involved in making our day super special. My brother-in-law was the officiant, my dad made all of the food, my super good friend took our pictures, a friend made our beautiful cake and we did our own invites, centerpieces, candy buffet and decor. There was so much love in the air and everyone that was there felt it too!!

What color shoes do you plan to wear to this year’s event?
You know that is a tricky one, especially when I don’t have the dress yet, but I am thinking light pink or something really sparkly!!


Thanks Heather!
