We’re excited to introduce you to the always interesting and insightful Kari Loth. We hope you’ll enjoy our conversation with Kari below.
Kari, thanks for joining us, excited to have you contributing your stories and insights. Going back to the beginning – how did you come up with the idea in the first place?
I came up with the idea of becoming a wedding planner because, really, who doesn’t love weddings? I get to be with people on one of the happiest days of their lives! What could be better?
I knew wedding planning would be sustainable because new couples are constantly getting engaged. The more people you meet at weddings, the more business you get!
I felt I would succeed because I was an event planner in my corporate career before I started a family. And, my team and I are perfectly giddy when we meet brides and help bring their magical day to reality.
As always, we appreciate you sharing your insights and we’ve got a few more questions for you, but before we get to all of that can you take a minute to introduce yourself and give our readers some of your background and context?
Southern Bash combines the warmth of friends listening to great music with the liveliness of that time you’ll never forget. More than an event planner, we bring hospitality, charm and charisma to your party that will have guests saying “remember when…?” for years to come. We offer full and partial planning services to meet every bride’s wish.
When people ask about Southern Bash, we tell them we love our couples, love to have fun, are super organized, and get totally excited and giddy about each and every wedding. Basically, we, as planners, have the best job ever. We are helping coordinate one of the happiest days of your life. I call that blessed.
When clients meet me, the owner, they can tell that I am passionate about their big day. I am trained and certified through AACWP. I values my Christian ideals – don’t be surprised if you hear an “amen” when I agree with the officiant or start your rehearsal with a prayer. I always remember that in the long run, this is about the MARRIAGE, not just the WEDDING.
Mother of bride says,”Everything was perfect and all because of Kari’s abilities. She is an outstanding planner, organizer of chaos, and sounding board. AND the best part… she does it all with her sweet southern charm and sweet smile. I recommend Kari everyday of the week and twice on Sunday.”
What’s the most rewarding aspect of being creative in your experience?
The most rewarding part of being a wedding planner is seeing the smile on my bride’s face on the wedding day. I love seeing her groom’s smile when she walks down the aisle. I adore witnessing her first look with her dad. I am giddy when the couple is partying it up on the dance floor with friends and family. At each send-off, I run to the get-away car, give the couple a big hug, and thank them for letting me be involved with this most important day.
Is there a mission driving your creative journey?
The mission of Southern Bash is to give each couple a personable experience with dedicated southern hospitality.
