Building a Dream Wedding Venue isn’t something that just happens and come out of thin air. On this episode of “Path to Business” Podcast I chat with Jessica Fewster about building a “Dream Wedding Venue” from the ground up and all the effort it takes to take an idea and turn it into something epic.
Everything from the business plan to mortgages being difficult . Once Jessica shared this story with me I knew the world needed to hear it. It took A LOT of convincing but I was finally able to sit her down and now I can’t wait to share it with you.
Leader in the Wedding Industry
Jessica is looked up to in the Ottawa Wedding Industry and I am completely honoured to have had her as a guest to share her story. It’s not everyday that someone dreams up building a brick and mortar spot in the mountains that’s modern and different from everything that the market had currently seen. As with most businesses we know that corporate should always be mixed in with weddings or events. After quickly realizing that corporate world wasn’t for her or the business they went full gear into weddings.
Everything happens for a reason and I really believe in the fact that if you put your mind to something you will make it happen. I know that Jessica has worked her butt off to get where she is and build the team she’s so proud to call her family.
Staying one step ahead
She is always trying her best to have nothing left to waste and has created smaller amazing business’ that all feed into her “Le Belvédère” dream. Things like shuttles and getting ready spots that are perfect for family and friends to stay at, extra kitchen space to cook food offsite and create a canteen out of it. Nothing has stopped her.
In your business I am sure you have been there where you realize that you want to control everything to make it all cohesive and on brand, but adding a shuttle service and getting ready spaces is next level. Talk about up-levelling.
Usually I feel like we think of something but dismiss doing it because it will be too much work or effort. Not this team, the second they get an idea, watch out. It’s going to happen and all for the right reasons, to please their ideal clients. With 120+ weddings a year it’s no doubt that this team has it down to a science, but the icing on the cake is that each client and guest walks away feeling like this wedding was one to remember.
