I am so excited to introduce you to the new Harper Hadley brand and all new Harper Hadley Creative!! This has been years in the making and after six years in business, I’m so excited to have a new, custom brand that feels just right!
Some of you may be wondering about the Events side of the business and I’m happy to report that it’s not going anywhere. In addition to continuing to serve our wonderful couples as they prepare to celebrate their marriage, I’m also welcoming new clients for workflow and systems strategy!! All of my passions and type-A tendencies are now housed under one name and brand – yay!
So, what do you need to know before we get to the launch celebration goodness?! I’m so glad you asked!
First of all, Harper Hadley Events is still a big part of the business, the web address is just changing. You can still find all of the wonderful wedding planning and design tips and advice on the site and blog!
Harper Hadley Creative is not only a legal business name and web address change but a perfect overarching fit for all of my creative passions as the business grows. Primarily, though, it is the workflow and systems strategy side of the business to serve creative business owners.
This has been a year-long journey of actually working on and launching, which seems like forever and the blink of an eye at the same time. My passion and heart for helping couples focus on their relationships during their engagement season and beyond has not dimmed at all. I still adore our couples and look forward to many more weddings in the years to come. However, for the past four years, I’ve felt a tug on my heart to also serve the creative industry.
For many of us, we get into creative entrepreneurship because of our artistic passions and longing to pave our own path and schedules so we can be more present in our lives. However, many of us often find ourselves struggling to do just that. The admin and business side of things tends to overtake our creativity and time for our clients and families.
I’ve been the girl living in a perpetual state of burn out, wondering if running a creative business would ever feel creative again. I’ve felt like I was letting everyone down trying to keep my head above water and save face. I’ve played the comparison game on an Olympic level trying to do all the things ‘she’ is doing and make them work for my life and business.
Then, we moved and I had to rebuild my business. I realized in that season that I didn’t like who I’d become. What I had allowed to take control of my emotions, calendar, and life. I had become the exact opposite of myself while trying to live the dream.
So I decided to ‘start over’ with a different approach.
Instead of diving in head first, I soaked in all the education and deep heart conversations I could. I researched and read various corporate approaches to managing time and scaling growth. I defined what success was for ME (no one else). I let my type-A flag fly and organized my business, not just my clients’ weddings. It was time for me to take back control and LIVE again!
It was in that journey that I realized there had to be so many more creatives experiencing those feelings and I set out to help. It started with sporadic coaching and the passion grew to a point where I decided to go all in and Harper Hadley Creative was born!
Just like your definition of success will be different from ‘hers’, so will your business needs. Knowing that I have crafted a few different approaches to help you get your business in order the best way for YOU!
One of our biggest updates, aside from the new look!!, is a NEW SERVICE!
After years of brides and vendors alike telling me that they wanted design help, I have answered with a new collection of E-Design services! You no longer need to book a full planning collection to work together on your event design!! Design is one of my absolute favorite things and ways to really tell our couples’ stories. I am beyond elated to have this available now!
Before you go look around the beautiful new online digs, I have to tell you how we are celebrating!!
If you book any service by April 20th, you’ll receive a 15% discount! We almost never offer discounts, so consider it if you are in the market for design and/or planning for 2019 or 2020!!
Either way, I cannot wait to hear from you and chat all about your love story and how I can help you during this exciting season!
Oh, friends, do I have great news for you!
