Hello, Howdy, How yall doin’!!! I just wanted to say hello with my first blog post. As you get to know more of Faryl’s Events, I thought you would get to know a little bit more about me as well. So without further ado I would like to introduce myself, my name is Jonitra Faryl Smith, but you can call me Joni.
If yall couldn’t tell from greeting yes I am from Texas. I was born in Austin, TX and raised in Houston, TX. I am an LEO through and through born August 1st. My favorite color is orange and green, for its bright, colorful, and cheerful spirit. I am a big dog person and cat person (large cat only.) My favorite time of year is the beginning of a crisp South Texas winter, because in actuality it feels more like the beginning of fall.
I am a self-proclaimed nerd. If you were to ask me; Are you team Marvel or DC? I would say that I’m 3/4ths Marvel and 1/4th DC. Marvel gives me: love for both heroes and villains, great backstories, character development, and intricate storylines (even though there are various timelines and universes). My favorite Marvel character will always be Jennifer Walters (She-Hulk). On the other hand, DC gives me a love for villains. My favorite DC villain is Edward Nygma (The Riddler, specifically Jim Carrey’s portrayal in 1995 Batman Forever).
The reason why my nerddom is so important to me is because it a direct parallel to the fight I provide for my clients. I will fight for the ideas of my clients just as Jennifer Walters fights for her clients in and outside of the courtroom as She-Hulk. The Riddler, I can solve complex problems and come up with unique solutions to address any concerns my clients might have.
How Faryl’s Events was Born
Faryl’s Events had been a dream of mine since I was little and didn’t even know what a wedding planner was. When I was in elementary school(6 or 7 years old) we had to go to computer class once a week. When our class work was done who ever had the pleasure of sitting next to me in class would receive a world class wedding planned in clip-art photos. I know I’m showing my age but this is where my dream started.
I started planning events when I was in high school. It all started with me planning our schools Halloween dance. It was the most envigorating thing for me to do in my high school career. I planned the dance for about 2 or 3 years. I also, planned a few events for family and friends. However, once I graduated I put that on goal of mine on hold. Until one of my college friend got engaged. That resparked my longing to become a wedding planner agian.
I then started my research on on how to become a wedding planner. Classes, courses, confrences, and networking. I did all of this trying to figre out how this would work as a business. I gathered as much information as possible. I was doing this while working in retail full time. But, I finally decided to tak the leep and start my business.
Since offically starting my business in 2018, I have met many diffrent types of couples and vendors. I have learned alot about owning my business. And, I couldn’t be happier.
