Hello World! I am so happy to introduce myself via this very post. Our first Allure Consulting Blog post! My name is Christy Daly and I run the San Francisco Bay Area office of Allure and the Allure blog. I will be posting here to keep you updated on what's going on at Allure, where the wedding industry is and where it might be headed, and my opinions about it! Check out our website for a full description of what Allure is all about and how we can help you plan your wedding.
Here's a little about me: I'm a Texas girl, but my heart belongs to San Francisco. Within one mile of my flat in the city, is the place my husband and I shared our first kiss, the chapel we got married in, and the hospital my son was born in. I can literally walk this personal history! I've been in San Francisco since 2004 and really feel like I became the woman I am today here. As I type this, I am sitting in a room with boxes...sadly, we are leaving my beloved city and heading to San Jose in just a few weeks. I am sad, of course, but I will still be around SF! I will be running Allure from my home office in our new place, near Campbell. Lots of changes coming up...and the Allure changes are already very much underway! Exciting stuff, my friends...!
Me, in a nutshell:
-Taurus/Aries cusp. Not a huge astrology person, but I feel I lean more toward the Taurus side of the stars...
-Dirty Dancing is my favorite movie. Of. All. Time.
-I'm 5'10" and I was 5'10" in 7th grade. Tough year.
-Wedding Planning is my career and passion. I'm also passionate about acting and I perform in an improv and sketch comedy troupe in San Francisco, Crisis Hopkins. I'm pretty funny. Just ask me.
-My son, Joey, is 2 years old and the light of my life. And the cheerio stuck to my bottom.
-I love food. I can't even think of a favorite meal or treat because I love almost everything. Especially anything that includes cheese. And except olives.
So...let's get started, shall we? Check out the new Allure site (with two brand new interviews by Michelle Martinez and me here), and follow us on Twitter and Facebook if you please. I'm so excited to be here in blog-land, I hope to see you soon and often!
p.s. Stay tuned, I'm introducing Kaella Wilson, my illustrious assistant, intern and friend very soon!
