December 3, 2018
We only have one month left of 2018, how crazy! December is such a great time of the year. Wedding season slows down a little, we can look forward to seeing our family and friends as everyone gets time off of work, and last but especially not least there is so much holiday spirit in the air! No matter the religion you practice or background you come from, I’m sure if you’re from Chicago you smile when you see the lights strung down Michigan Ave or scattered around the Zoo at Zoolights. Or maybe you enjoy ordering a mulled wine at the Christkindlmarket too (we sure do!). There’s also the Maggie Daley skating ribbon which is so much fun for all ages.
So as these holidays approach, we feel that it’s the perfect time to give thanks to all of those who are our supporters, clients, friends, and family. We would not be here without any of you! That’s why mahalo is the perfect Hawaiian value to implement in the month of December.
We will keep this short and sweet. There are a million people that we could individually thank but that sounds a little overdramatic to type out for all to see. I do think the people that have driven our business the furthest already know that we respect them, we appreciate them, and we look forward to continuing those relationships. But for those of you who may not know if we feel you deserve a little gratitude, here we go!
Our clients – this is a given. You’re trusting us to plan the biggest days of your life, and if you’re not a wedding client we want to thank you for letting us throw one kick-a** party for you! You’re the foundation for our successful company and we can never express how much you all mean to us.
Our friends & our supporters – thank you so much for being by our sides as we were figured out how to run our business. There has been times that we were MIA for months so we appreciate that you’ve continued to reach out and ask how business is going. You know the best friends and supporters out there are those who even when you don’t see one another for a long time, there’s no hard feelings and things pick up where they left off.
Our partners, aka our vendor friends! We are honored and feel grateful to be part of such an amazing event planning community in Chicago. You all continue to recommend Ohana Events and that means the world to us. Every single recommendation, even if they don’t end up working out in the end, is deeply appreciated. That means you love working besides us and you know that your clients will be in good hands by bringing us along for the ride. We hope that all of you also appreciate when we recommend you time and time again. Our weddings and events are only as successful as the vendors that bring the wedding to life.
Our followers – there’s a chance I have not met some of you reading this. Can we fix that? If you’re taking the time to follow along through Ohana Event’s journey, I encourage you to email us right away. We love to meet new faces even if you’re just a fan of our work, or a vendor that we have not met yet! Who knows, one coffee might lead to a great relationship so we would love to hear from more of you!
Thank you for reading along to this month’s company value. We only have a few left to go! We will see you next month.
