Good And Proper
Event & Speciality And Drink Bar
Meet the Owner
I can hardly believe it’s already been three years since my husband Chris and I, decided to launch Good and Proper Events! Three whirlwind years of sleepless nights and working tirelessly to produce a stylish mobile bar, along with all things wedding/party. Being one of the first to break ground in a market has it’s disadvantages. In a perfect world, our ideal mentor would have landed on our doorstep, to tell us exactly what our business needed each step of the way. Instead we’ve been collecting hard-earned lessons, from each success and each mistake.
We have very fresh memories of one of our clients telling us why we should create an Instagram account, and the joy we felt when we got our very first follower. Not as joyful was some of the advice we received from a few of the people we shared our new business idea with. “We want to build props and create a rental company that offers a fresh, design-driven approach to children’s celebrations as well as pure adult fun!”, we said. “There is no money in the events industry”, they responded. But something inside said hold on tight to your vision, and we are so glad we listened!
Along the way several life changes happened. In September of 2016 we found out were pregnant with our 1st child. We were thrilled because we had been trying for quite sometime and thought God wanted something different for us. Well different is what he gave us when he blessed us with our beautiful and very energetic son. While still running our other businesses 7 months after giving birth, we found out that I had stage 3 Breast Cancer. Talk about a blow to your ego??? We were devastated, scared and confused. After a quick second opinion we knew we were in for the fight of our lives. We knew it was time to exercise our faith. God has a funny way of getting our attention. Well he certainly had ours. I mean surely God didn’t bless us with this beautiful little boy so that he would have to grow up without his mother? At that point fighting was our only option. Our motto became clear and evident…”Wendy Strong, Fighter, Champion”
After 16 rounds of appearance altering chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, and 33 rounds of grueling radiation you find that peace of mind has no price tag. I knew that God would heal me but I also knew that the ugly diagnosis that had been given to me was not just about me. It was bigger than me. This diagnosis was the vehicle to taking Good and Proper to the next level. I have always been an advocate for Breast Cancer Awareness, but now I can tell what I know, not what I heard about Breast Cancer. Good and Proper has partnered with a non-profit Breast Cancer organization to support the fighters, admire the survivors and honor the taken by never giving up hope.
While recovering from surgeries I knew that Good and Proper had to come full circle. It was time to stop throwing my talents in the ground and burying them. I love to entertain and have been affectionately named by my family and friends “The Queen of Party”. So now I’m doing what I love, and that is making clients excited about having an inexpensive event with and expensive & exceptional feel.
