Happy #WeddingWednesday, Planner Friends! It’s that time of week again! Today on The Bridal Society’s blog we have another amazing CWP to share with you. This week’s Society Planner Spotlight features Renea Cupples of Creative Expressions by Renea.
When asked to tell us a little bit about herself and her business, Renea told us, “Early in my life I found my love and passion for weddings. At the age of 16, I started working for a florist and caterer. I began studying all things wedding and etiquette related. Now, for more than 28 years it has been my privilege to guide brides and their families on the path to their wedding day. This is something the Lord has laid on my heart and given me a great passion for, and what a passion it has been! My mission is to exceed the brides expectations on the happiest and most memorable day of their lives. My Mission Statement is Your Vision, Your Style, Your Day.”
