Happy Small Business Saturday

It’s Small Business Saturday 🧡

I know we say this over and over again, but we are so incredibly grateful for everyone’s support to our small business.

You’re looking at a husband and wife team that devotes their life to this business. We’re the accountant, marketing manager, lead planner, and so much more. We truly do it all.

This year has brought many new challenges as small business owners and your support is invaluable to us.

Remember while you’re out shopping for your family this year to support your local small businesses. When you’re running a small business it truly is the little things that make a big difference.

Friday Introductions: Get To Know Me

Posted on

Hey Everyone 👋🏼 It’s me, Megan, the planner behind Kennedy Planning Co.

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a #fridayintroductions to share some fun facts about me, so here we go!

1. Travel is a huge part of my life. This past year with very little travel has been the worst. My highlight of 2020 was traveling to Oregon for Kayla and Jordan’s elopement.

David and I have a goal of traveling to all 50 states and we have 5 more to go!

2. My home design aesthetic is very modern and clean. I like white walls and very minimal patterns. One room in our house has color in it 😳 Wedding planning design is the complete opposite of what’s going on in this house. Bring on the colors, patterns, and unique ideas.

3. My favorite food is fried chicken and macaroni and cheese. Give me all the comfort food please!

4. I love horror movies, true crime, and serial killer documentaries. It’s very rare to find me watching a romantic comedy.

5. I adore all creatures! Any animal is cute to me snakes, possums, bats, etc. I am a true animal lover. I rescued over 57 toads this past spring that were stuck in my egress well.

6. My first concert ever was Britney Spears! I love a good 90’s and early 2000’s jam 🎶

Happy National Wedding Planning Day

Posted on

Happy #NationalWeddingPlanningDay! Since it’s also #fridayintroductions and I’m a wedding planner, I’m going to share a few fun facts about me 💖

1. My favorite part of a wedding is the moment after the bride and groom are announced as husband and wife. I love to look back at the couple as they share their excitement together!


2. My husband and I are the dream team when it comes to planning. Whether it’s heavy lifting or floral design, we got this!


3. Speaking of David, we love to travel! We have a goal of traveling to all 50 states by the time we’re 30. We have 12 more states to go!


4. I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Design. I love fashion and I think that this love helps my wedding designs too! Check out my personal Instagram @meganricica for all things fashion


5. I have a tequila certification, but I don’t drink any alcohol (yes, that includes tequila! 
😂)

Thank you to Kaptured By Kassie Photography for capturing this moment of me at a wedding last year!

Cheers to 2019!
