Ashleigh and I are so excited to introduce the newest member of our Mayhar team! Erinn Larson just recently came on board to help assist both Ashleigh and me in various realms. Currently studying for a degree in Entrepreneurship at the University of Texas at San Antonio, she is not only driven from a business sense but has an impeccable eye for design! Additionally, she may just be one of the hardest workers I know. She is such a joy and treat to have around and we feel so blessed to get to work alongside her! Welcome Erinn!
Here is just a bit more info for ya!
Why do you want to work in the wedding industry?
I want to work in the wedding industry because its so ever-changing. I love that no two weddings are exactly the same, because there are so many elements that each couple can incorporate in their wedding that makes it unique and special.
I also want to work in the wedding industry to help create a beautiful, memorable day for each couple and their family. I love the idea of being a part of a team, that seamlessly creates and produces the day that each couple will remember and cherish for the rest of their life.
What do you enjoy most about weddings?
As much as I enjoy putting a wedding together, and coordinating the day, I truly enjoy the ceremony the most. A wedding to me, is all about the couple and their love. The ceremony is where that is demonstrated, when the groom seeing the bride for the first time, the vows and the kiss. I love the intimacy, and sincerity displayed in the ceremony. I truly enjoy seeing the love each couple has and knowing that I helped create their special day.
Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration everywhere. I think that’s what makes weddings so special you can be inspired by a movie, a garden, Pinterest or even just a color and design a whole wedding off of it.
What makes you smile?
Oh gosh, so many things make me smile. I would say the little acts of kindness people do every day, just opening a door or saying good morning make me smile the most. But I also smile when a fun song comes on the radio I can sing along to or I get a random text or call from a friend.
If you were stranded on an island with only 3 items, what would you wish them to be?
As much as I like to be practical and say that I would bring the essentials like food and shelter, I probably wouldn’t bring those…I would bring my dog (does she count as an item?) because shes the best companion and I love her to death. Also, I saw that Tom Hanks movie where he befriends a volleyball, and my dog would save me from becoming crazy like him. A water filter, because water is pretty important I feel. And probably one of those knives with the other little tools with them. I don’t know what they’re called but they seem pretty handy if I was stranded.
