Hall opened her business in August 2016 after being laid off from the oil and gas industry, but Hall said she started event planning in high school, helping friends organize weddings as a side business that lasted through her young adulthood.
“I have always loved helping people with their day, and every wedding is different,” Hall said.
For her first two years, Hall worked from home, but in 2018 she moved to her current location on Davis Street and hired Kari Reyes to help with events. Although weddings are Notably Yours’ focus, Hall said she and her team have started breaking into planning corporate events and celebrations.
“I know it’s a little different than weddings, so we want to get as much knowledge as we can on that. But at the same time, it’s very similar,” Hall said.
Reyes said the business has helped 71 weddings so far in 2019, as of Oct. 18. Although most weddings are booked six months in advance, Reyes said some couples come to them two years before their wedding, and some call them just three weeks before the date. Hall said the Montgomery County is a popular wedding site because it is far enough away from Houston to feel like a destination, and the more rural community feels relaxed for many couples.
Hall operates as both a wedding planner and a coordinator. She said a planner will walk a couple through the entire process, while a coordinator will handle day-of logistics.
Although a wedding planner and coordinator can seem like an extravagance for some people, Hall said a wedding is such a significant moment in people’s lives it deserves to have someone guiding it who knows what they are doing.
“If you’re going to invest a year and a half planning an event, protect your investment. Get someone who understands every single possible thing that could possibly go wrong,” she said.
