Petite Pearl is the sole reason as to why I’ve made it this far in the wedding industry. The amount of times I could count my blessings would never suffice up to the fact that I had the opportunity to work with Jessica of Petite Pearl. The day Jess said ‘Yes’ when I asked if she needed an extra hand on board with wedding crafting and day-of setup definitely marks the beginning to some of the best years of my life. Being only 20 at the time, young and eager to learn, Petite Pearl exposed me to the wedding industry and the hard work and long hours behind it.
I didn’t really give two shits if I had to give up almost every weekend of my summer to lug around Rubbermaid bins full of candy jars, tie 300 chair sashes, fold napkins, or getting nearly killed with a 25 foot ladder so we can hang lanterns. Those weekends were not only filled with a lot of backaches, hands cramps and long car drives but so many laugh attacks and honestly, just good times. I can’t even tell you the amount I’ve learned throughout my experience with Petite Pearl. Working alongside with Petite Pearl has also given me the opportunity and pleasure to work with such amazing and reputable vendors in the wedding industry. Some honourable mentions whom I absolute adore; Lele Chan, L’nielle, BE Studio, Vasia Photography, Christine Williams, Tomasz Wagner, Celsia Florist, Flower Factory and of course, Margot and Laine whom I worked alongside with during my time at Petite Pearl <3
Jessica was not only my mentor and boss who I called a Nazi instead of boss (inside joke hehe) but also a friend. You could bet that we laughed at the most stupid things, have the same sense of humour and the cherry on top of it all was that we were both big ass potty mouths. Jess; I cannot thank you and Petite Pearl enough. Working with you for 3 years and seeing you eat next to nothing on wedding days, seeing you in your zone, the countless of hours you’ve invested into making sure your clients literally have the best day of their lives, and your professionalism balanced out with being so personable has only made me strive to work harder and achieve my own personal goals as a planner.
