As I sit to reflect on this past year, I am overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation for the abundance of blessings that 2015 brought to the Polished family. It was a year of incredible professional achievements, as we produced events with a wide range of size, scale and complexity, and a year of joyous personal achievements, as we welcomed a new baby and celebrated a new marriage. While we produced far fewer events this year because Sarah was busy enjoying precious new baby snuggles after the birth of her son in late August and Jess was busy being a blushing bride as she married her husband in early October, it was still a deeply gratifying year as we helped some truly wonderful clients bring their entertaining visions to life. As we approach the start of 2016 and begin to plan a whole new year of beautiful events and celebrations, it is always a treat to look back at the year we are leaving behind. Here are the highlights of 2015, in chronological order from January to December.
