Hello!

I’m Kaitie and I’m the owner of Sailboat Weddings. I’m probably currently doing a little happy dance right now because you’re taking the time to read this blog (or at least take a peek).

A little background about Sailboat Weddings…

Sailboat Weddings has been a dream of mine for sometime now. I officially launched my business in December of 2017. However, there was A LOT of background work starting in 2016 leading up to that marvelous date. I had to learn the in’s and out’s of taxes, business licensing, contracts, etc. And, to be honest, I’m still learning (especially about SEO)!

Once I officially launched Sailboat Weddings, the support from my family and friends was overwhelming. Still to this very day, I’m always shocked by the support that I receive. Owning your own business is hard, but having a strong support system behind you and amazing clients who become instant friends make every single day worth it.

Funny thing about my launch date… When I launched Sailboat Weddings I had no clue that I was around 7 weeks pregnant. Looking back, I’m glad I didn’t know because I don’t think I would’ve made my wedding planning business public. That means I wouldn’t have launched until December 2018! And, let me tell you, I’m not good at bottling-up exciting news.

Side Note: I’m one of those people that hate surprises. So, don’t tell me you have a surprise for me unless you plan on telling me right then and there.

A little background about me…

My husband, Ryan, and I are high-school sweethearts. We married in November 2014. Our little boy, Lincoln, was born on August 18, 2018 – his due date! We also have two dogs (Alice and Levi), a cat (Jethro), and a bearded dragon (Sam).

I’m all about random facts, so instead of paragraph after paragraph, how about bullet points with some pictures? Cool? Cool.

  • I have backpacked through Europe and upon returning from my trip, Ryan proposed to me at the airport.
  • I LOVE otters so, for our honeymoon Ryan made special plans that allowed us to interact with otters!
  • I have a baby brother, Wade, who everyone always assumes is older than me. It’s the beard…
  • Gimme a mango margarita and some cheese dip and we will be instant best friends.
  • I am a Hog fan to the core. Woo Pig Sooie!
  • Being a mom is the best thing ever!
  • I don’t tan, I just turn into a lobster. (Sunscreen for days when I go to the lake!)

A little more about the blog…

While this blog isn’t wedding related, you’ll be seeing some wedding related content soon! Plus, I have some other things up some sleeve that I’m excited to share with you. And, remember how I said I’m not good at bottling-up exciting news? Well, to me, the things I have in-store are exciting but I’m going to be good and not share too many details yet!

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a great day!
