Hi, My name is Amarilis Cano-Schutte but some people call me Amy.
I am a military wife and a proud mother of two wonderful kids and we are also the loving owners of Rocky, a Weimaraner we rescued from the shelter 6 years ago.
As a single mother for many years, I knew that working full-time and raising my family on my own would mean that my personal dream would have to take a back seat to being the best Mother I could possibly be. Not until I had the blessing of meeting the love of my life, my husband, could I finally breathe a little and take a break to really think about my passions and my skills and what I wanted to do with them. That being said, right after my daughter went to college, I had the time to come up with a plan that would help me combine my passions and skills into a single profession. As an event planner I have the opportunity to help people achieve their own goals and dreams.
Earning my wedding and event planning certification from a recognized institution allowed me to open the door to the industry, first as an intern, then as a full-time employee assisting in various events for a local company. In addition, being a military wife has allowed me to travel considerably, often giving me the opportunity to visit venues and meet vendors within the event industry off my city limits. This has put me in a position to offer my clients unlimited possibilities when it comes to destination events, which also makes me a great adviser about couples getaways, honeymoons spots, etc.
I am also working on creating my blog with the sole purpose of sharing various tips and advice on all the places I’ve visited with my husband and family.
Please check back for new entries soon! Thanks.
