The E33BayArea launch is here! The name E33 is a combination of E for Erica and 33 is the area code for a city in Ethiopia, named Dessie. A creative friend of ours helped us with a name that suited both of us and we loved it! We have a lot of fun together and constantly surprised how well we work together. The pictures above are a true testament of our special friendship!
We were both "Do-It-Yourself" (DIY) brides and realized during the planning phase that it's impossible to enjoy your big day while trying to coordinate at the same time. While I, Dessie was planning my wedding, I was put in touch with an amazing woman who helped to make my wedding day run smoothly and took care of all of the day-of stress. (Shout out to Phina!) Her knowledge and ability to take initiative was perfect! Without her taking the reigns, I would have been too distracted to pause and enjoy all of the special moments of my wedding day. That is our heart for brides and other event hosts. Couples spend months stressing over linens, food, flowers, dresses, and all the other fun stuff that comes with planning a wedding. The day of the wedding should be full of laughter, tears of joy, eating, and lots of dancing! We want our couples to leave all of the hiccups to us! We will walk side-by-side with you a month before you wedding to tie any loose ends to ensure there is a minimal chance of any hiccups.
We can't forget to give credit where it is due! Thank you to our family and friends for the love and support as we embark on this new adventure. A special thank you to our amazing husbands for contributing to our website and emotional support. You all have helped us in so many ways and we are forever grateful to have you in our corner. We love you all and excited for what's to come!
