Naturally Yours Events was honored to be a part of over 60 events this year! After the previous year, we were thankful to celebrate each and every wedding at some of our favorite venues again with our vendor friends as well as experience new spaces and meet other great wedding vendors.

Most importantly, our clients gave us a lot to look forward to this year. We went through some heartbreak in 2020 with many postponements and cancellations. With all these challenges and changes, it meant so much to us to finally celebrate with some of our couples who we had been planning with for so long. There was a little extra spark of joy amongst couples and guests as they enjoyed being together since for many it was the first time in a while. Many of our couples said their most important element of their wedding day was to have a fun, casual atmosphere for their guests to have a drink, dance, and catch up with each other. 

We are TEN! Naturally Yours Events had its 10-year anniversary this April when we hosted a diamond ring giveaway with our friends at Mineralogy. We also dedicated 10% of our profits this year to Brave Space Alliance and as we strive to maintain and continuously improve upon our core values of being socially and environmentally responsible.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this year great! Now let’s look back on our 2021 events…
