OH 2014 WHAT a year!

 . . . . . . .
I can honestly say has been the best year of my life 

I don't have enough time to do this year justice with ALL that went on, but I'll give you a little glimpse into Simply by Tamara Nicole's year
. . . . . . .
In January 
we found out that we were PREGNANT!

Although we had weddings fully booked for the year, I wasn't worried . . . and apparently either were any of my clients! They ALL wanted to stay with SBTN, even if their wedding was ON My due date (lots of love to you Shabana!) which was Sept 6th, 2014.

What a joy it was to experience growing a human in my belly.  God sure blessed us this year with some amazing strength and health to be able to grow this little gift, all while working my crazy wedding schedule with weddings every single weekend from May until several weeks AFTER he was born.  PTL!

Also Tillie & Daniel got married at the Arctic Club, Photo Elan

. . . . . . .

We were able to find out if we were having a boy or girl . . .
BIG thanks to Carla from Honey Crumb Cake Studio for making the gender reveal cake.
 AND I had to change my Pinterest board for the nursery because it was a BOY!

Also I got my plaque for Best of the Knot for the 3rd year in a row, woot woot!

AND to top off the month, Kati & Freddy's wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty!

. . . . . . .

Carrie and Joe got married!!!

Babymoon time!
My handsome hubby and I jetted off to Paris and Spain, for an amazing 2 week vacation.  Bebe Anderson sure enjoyed the pastries and food . . . but mama stayed in shape by walking 12-18 miles a day! WHAT an amazing vacation! We took SO many photos, but here are just a couple . . .

 (we wrote our names and Weston as well!)

AND then I found out that I was voted top 3 Wedding Day of Coordinators by Seattle Bride Magazine!!! YAY!

BEST day of our lives, our blessing of a son Weston Vincent was born on Sept 4th, at 6:06 PM.  Weighing 7 lbs 4 oz.  BEST. DAY. EVER! He has changed our world for the better, and I don't think we could love him more!!!

November was great! My belated maternity leave finally!
Weston turned 2 months old, and what a doll!

{Jennifer & Tim}

Weston's first Christmas, was amazing!

. . . . . . .
There is SO much more I could talk about . . . but we are running out of time for 2014 and I want to cuddle up with our little family and enjoy the evening:)

In addition to above, we had many featured weddings on some big name blogs and also magazines . . .

Looking forward to 2015!

I'm not sure it can get close to how amazing 2014 was, BUT I am so excited to see what it has in store for both Simply by Tamara Nicole, and our family!
With Claire by my side as my Associate Coordinator I know we will be rocking some amazing weddings!

Happy New Year!
