About this Episode

We’re celebrating three years of The Big Wedding Planning Podcast this month. WHAT?! Three years of every Wednesday episodes. Three years of conversations, interviews, advice. We’ve answered your questions, we’ve interviewed over a 100 guests, and we’ve learned and shared so much! Wedding Planning is the business we are both in, and the podcast is a true labor of love. In the process of producing the podcast, we have bonded, our friendship has evolved, our outlook has evolved, and we have
Big Takeaways
Special thank you to former guests and colleagues of ours: Aleisha from Bridechilla, Matt Gourley (Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend podcast) and Amanda Gourley (The Big Ones podcast), Claire from White Ink Photography, and Trish from Beatbox Portraits - they all called in to wish us a Happy Podiversary and we loved hearing from them! Ah, memories. We know some awesome people, yall. And this podcast has opened doors for us to know more awesome people, to know YOU, to hear your stories and your experiences and it allows us to feel connected in a way that we never imagined. Thank you for that!

We reviewed some of our very favorite episodes - what a fun trip down memory lane! One that we both loved - was Ep #150 - “Will you marry us?” - all about how to get the best out of your friend or family member that has agreed to be your officiant. We loved recording it with our guest, Mark Allan Groleau of Unboring Officiant, and we got a ton of great feedback from listeners after the wedding. We’re still collaborating with him, btw - so check out www.unboringofficiant.com/bigwedding and you’ll see what we’re talking about!

Among others we mention, we also loved recording the “Cocktails with the Aerobar” - which we did in Nashville. Listen to this one if you want to hear what super-hung-over Michelle sounds like!

We’ve come a long way, baby! This episode is a celebration of how far we’ve come and why we’re excited about the future. Together. As co-hosts of The Big Wedding Planning Podcast. Thank you for coming along for the ride! Thank you for trusting us. Thank you for telling your friends and co-workers about us. And thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding planning experience. We are honored and humbled and really excited about the next year!

Also - we indulge a little in this ep and take some time to tell each other what we love about each other. And honestly, it’s something that friends should do more often! It’s generous and cathartic and healthy. So - go find a dear friend and tell them why you love them so much!
