Happy Wednesday loves!! I hope you enjoyed learning more about Josh, yesterday!! Today, I’m so excited for you to meet another team member, Roslyn!
Meet Roslyn | Our Wedding Planning Assistant
(Detail Perfector + Joy/Laughter Facilitator)
I’m so very excited to welcome Roslyn onto our team!! Roslyn and I met during my mad dash to find some additional hands on help for a 400-person wedding in Northern Virginia, and again for a wedding in Maryland, last year! As soon as I handed her my timeline and wedding day checklists, she became a major team player. She checked off to do lists with great speed and efficiency, assisted other vendors as they set up, and was so great at thinking lightly on her feet! Aside from these amazing qualities, I loved how she managed to keep things light, joyful, and fun, even in the most stressful of situations! These traits are must haves on the Heart’s Content Team, and I’m so grateful to have her as one of our new Wedding Planning Assistants! She will work closely with me, create timelines, assist with the client experience, and help to make sure that every detail is executed perfectly at every wedding we serve.
Roslyn currently resides in Northern Virginia! I am particularly excited about this, because as Heart’s Content seeks to branch into the DC market more frequently, she and Sade will be an instrumental part of our client experience for couples in that area! She graduated from Lincoln University of Missouri, with a Bachelor’s in Journalism, and when she’s not supporting couples during their special day, she loves traveling, reading, spending time with her family, and trying out new and different cuisines!
I can’t wait for you to learn more about Roslyn through our fun interview! Enjoy “meeting” her here on the blog, and I know our couples will LOVE Roslyn’s fun and joyful personality in person!
What’s your name?
Do you have a nickname(s) or a name HCE couples can refer to you as?
Roz and Rue
Where are you from?
Tell everyone a little about yourself!
I’m the youngest of three siblings and I am the only girl. Although I am a VA native, I was partially raised by my Aunt and Uncle in Chicago… through that experience I was blessed to be raised with my cousin…who grew to be more like a sister.
I graduated from Lincoln University in Missouri (also my mom’s Alma mater), with a Bachelor’s in Journalism. During my undergrad I pledged Delta Sigma Theta. After graduating, I got a job in the IT field (can we say career swap!)
Aside from work and spending time with friends and family, I’m dedicated to ministry work at my church, First Mount Zion Baptist Church.
Tell us your top 5 favorite things ever in the history of all time…annnnnd GO! (and state why you like them!)
-Food!! For one it’s beautiful!… Seriously, growing up around two grandmothers that can THROW DOWN in the kitchen…I came to believe that cooking is a truly one of the most beautiful ways to share of yourself. I’m a firm believer that how you feel is expressed in your cooking…whether you are happy or side, it comes through. I just really love seeing how individuals express themselves through the meals they prepare.
-Books!! It something comforting for me to have book in hand. I’m at home when I get a chance to go to library or bookstore. If I have a good book in hand and a plate of food…I’m in Heaven!
-The movies! Going to the movies is one of my joys during my downtime
-Mystery Shows/ movies is closest thing to me being a detective lol
-“Build it yourself” projects…it’s like doing a puzzle, except the end product can be put to use!
Tell us one fun fact about yourself!
I dabble in digital editing.
What are your favorite wedding details?
The floral arrangements and the venue! It’s always exciting to see what venue a couple chooses. It’s almost an outward expression of the couple’s “character.”
What’s your favorite part of a wedding day?
The reception. I love seeing how the new couple celebrates with their loved ones.
What does encouraging and cultivating meaningful and lasting marriages mean to you?
It’s an absolute privilege to take part of an experience that is so meaningful. The experiences of that day are lifetime memories and I want to ensure that each detail only embellishes on the experience for the couple and their loved ones.
What made you want to be involved in the wedding industry?
My heart’s core is service and supporting a couple through one of the most important experiences of their lives in an absolute honor. (Isn’t she amazing?? We live and breathe this at HCE!)
What are you most excited about in joining the HCE Team?
HCE is truly a family! And I love being a part of a team that pour all of its gifts/talents into every detail of a couple’s special event, each and every time. Even thought I am a part of the process, I am always astounded by how the team transform’s a couple’s vision/dream into a reality.
What’s your best advice to newly engaged couples?
Know your spouse’s Love Languages, and honor them. (Amen, sister!!)
Isn’t she amazing?! I’m so grateful to have Roslyn on our team, and I know you will love her too! Drop a line in the comments below to say hi!
