Happy Tuesday friends!! Let me start this off by saying THANK YOU to everyone who left sweet comments, messages, etc last evening as we shared our brand new team on social media!! Building a team has been a fun, yet topsy turvy process. If you know me at all, it’s hard for me to relinquish control–I’ll admit that full well. But at a certain point I realized that this business was so much bigger than me and my heart; that without a village to hold it up the goals we have set in place for the next 5 years onward would either never come to fruition. So it goes without saying that each team member was prayed for and vetted to make sure they were the right fit for HCE and for the couples we love to serve. I am so very excited to have the chance to introduce each of them to you this week! Each day, we will share a special Team Member highlight interview, if you will, to allow you to get to know and fall in love with these incredible people just like I have over the past couple of months! At Heart’s Content we are family. Every person’s role is so important as we all work together to make very special couples’ wedding days come true. I’m so excited to welcome these amazing people into our family! That being said, let’s take it away with our very first person!
Meet Josh | Our Production Manager
(Wedding Vision Conductor + Best Husband Ever)
Okay guys, I’m trying so hard not to get emotional as I write this specific post. When I started my business 5 years ago, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would have a team of wedding warriors working alongside me who love this business and the couples we serve, just as much as I do. And then it was even more of a stretch that my husband, Josh, would join the team too! But truthfully, I shouldn’t be surprised, because he’s been in the mountains and valleys of this business from the very beginning, and has been my biggest supporter since day one. He designed my first logo for my first business (a stationery business), and the name Heart’s Content was actually his brain child! I’m so excited for him to join our team as our Production Manager! In this role, he will work closely with me throughout the entire wedding planning process to devise plans to make even the most far-fetched of wedding day ideas happen in the most efficient of ways. On wedding days, you’ll see him do a lot of heavy lifting, delegating, bow-tying, bow tie-tying, and vision conducting/implementing to make sure every wedding we have the honor to serve will be executed flawlessly. He’s calm, reassuring presence, very logical way of thinking, years of experience in the industry (via being the Best Husband EVER and a multiple time assistant/supporter of HCE), and engineering prowess makes him perfect for this role!
I’ve asked Josh a few questions so you can get to know if from his own perspective! I hope you’ll enjoy learning more about him as I enjoy walking by his side everyday in marriage, parenthood, and business!
What’s your name?
Do you have a nickname(s) or a name you’d like HCE couples to refer to you as?
Josh is just fine.
Where are you from?
Virginia Beach (Hampton Roads)

What are your favorite wedding details?
I think most guys would say the same thing I’m about to say: food arrangements and cakes.
What’s your favorite part of a wedding day?
The reception, because all the jitters are gone, you’ve said your vows, and now it’s time to eat with your loved ones and dance (and I love to dance!).
What does encouraging and cultivating meaningful and lasting marriages mean to you?
Making sure people have the tools they need to set a good foundation for the future of their relationship is key. You will falter if you don’t have a solid foundation.
What made you want to be involved in the wedding industry?
Supporting my lovely wife as she pursued her passion. (Isn’t he the best???)
What are you most excited about in joining the HCE Team?
Aside from helping my wife with her business, having the opportunity to spend quality time with her and serve her while she does something she loves. (Seriously? I LOVE this man!)
What’s your best advice to newly engaged couples?
Communication is the key to promoting a healthy relationship.
Join me in welcoming Josh to the team by leaving a sweet note below!! I love this man so much and I’m so grateful to do life AND business with him!!
Come back tomorrow to meet one of our Wedding Planning Assistants, Roslyn!!
