Premiere NJ Woman-Owned Wedding Businesses You Need To Know

by | Mar 8, 2021 | Advice for Marriers | 0 comments

Today is International Women’s Day. As part of this elite group of NJ woman-owned wedding businesses, this day holds an enormous place in my heart. I never understood community until owning my own business. I never understood support until giving birth to my daughter. But, on days like today, I am reminded of the miracle it is to be surrounded by women who empower each other and thrive with each other.

So, today, I would like to celebrate a handful of absolutely special women. Not only have they inspired me, but they continually support others in their community and their businesses. Wedding excellence is only a few of the things these women easily serve to their clients.
