When you were a child someone asked you, ‘What are you going to be when you grow up?’ and then you’d have to draw a picture of it. I drew a picture of myself as a bride.
My name is Tracy Miller! I am married and have two wonderful kids, Kris and Kail. I live in Bakersfield and have lived here for 13 years!
My hobby is event coordinating and design. I started coordinating and designing in 2009 when my best friend Debbie called me and said, “Brock (her son) is getting married and we have 6 weeks and $4000 to do it!!!”. Me, being a “fixer”, I told her Id take care of it…. How hard could it be, right? I hung up the phone, called a caterer I know (Grills Gone Wild), called around asking favors and checking prices…. TIME!!! In 3 hours I had a base price of what it would cost. I can’t remember what the final cost was, I’m sure it was over (it always is) but close. Close enough to have a tiffany themed, sparkly wedding for 2 wonderful people who deserved a fairy tale.
Then the phone began to ring! With questions from friends, what about this, and when do I do that, who do I call? And the best answer I could come up with was, “ME”! I then started coming up with plans, plans like, “Debbie you should learn how to do wedding cakes!” …… heehee! And she did. YOU’RE WELCOME! Plans like, self-teaching myself to do crafts and floral arrangements. Come to find out, IM GOOD AT IT! I couldn’t believe it! I mean, my dad would tell me how great it looked. But he’s supposed to tell me I’m amazing! It didn’t start sinking in until, strangers and vendors that do and see events regularly started sending me “clients” and complimenting my work. I took all of the compliments with pride and learned more and more as the years passed by.
