It is with enormous gratitude and a full heart that we present this video to all of our team members, clients, couples, vendor partners, family and friends. As we close the door on 2020, a year that turned all of our worlds upside down, thank you trusting us, for your support and for your confidence – we truly are #inthistogether.
In 2020 we rescheduled, postponed and cancelled about 500 events. We were told to stay home and close our doors. Once we recognized this wasn’t a two week shut down, we needed to get creative and quick. We had over 50 couples we needed to work with to re-imagine how their weddings may or may not take place and on what date, bar and bat mitzvahs that had been planned for years, we had a staff who wanted to work and needed to pay the bills, and we also were committed to overall safety of our team.
Learning how to operate in a safe way and providing that training for our team was paramount so that we could still operate our business and the events we had committed to. Our team underwent intense training in the front and back of the house. We joined the PRLA (PA Restaurant and Lodging Association) and followed along closely, daily, to the latest changes and trends and we actively participated in the weekly webinars.
As you watch the ticker of lives being lost during this pandemic, of course, that is what is the most important. We have committed to following the guidelines needed to keep our community and our events safe. Outside of our traditional events, we have provided meals to front line workers and essential workers. We are also committed to making sure our team has the ability to earn and that their families have what they need to survive into 2021 and beyond.
