Today we’d like to introduce you to Hannah Hester.
Hannah, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
Of course! In the Spring of 2013 my fiancé, at the time, and I booked our wedding venue in North Houston. I asked the venue owner her story and she told me she attended the University of Houston, Hilton College, to study hospitality. This immediately pricked the ear of all of my family members present and they all encouraged me to look it up and to gather more information. To make a long story short in almost no time at all I was on my way to Houston to attend U of H, go Coogs! Sometimes in life you are presented with a hard decision that wasn’t easy to swallow at first, but ends up being the best possible next step you could ever dream up. After moving to Houston, I was heavily encouraged by some key family members to get my feet wet in the industry and to start with party planning.
So, in the summer of 2013 Loose Ends started as a party planning and designing company and after quite a few parties and quite a few business lessons, I realized the part that I loved most about my job was actually the planning process and all the little details. The time spent getting to know someone and get a true sense of what they were looking for in their design and that is exactly what I found in our first couple! In 2014 we planned our first wedding and it was everything I wanted the planning, the organizing, the managing, and the full experience of getting to know the couple.
Getting to be a part of one of the biggest days of someone’s life is truly gratifying and full of so many blessings. After our first wedding the recommendations by clients just kept coming and eventually we were in packages and at venues and booking up fast! In 2016 I graduated from U of H with a Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality with a focus in Event Management and I have never once looked back on my decision to move and to start LE, we have been so immensely blessed from the start. We owe so much of our success to each of the couples, vendors, family, and friends that walked with us and showed us the way.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I always tell our clients that their big day should be an expression of their love story, so in turn I guess I am an organizer and painter of couple’s love stories! With the education and drive to fully prepare my clients for their big day ahead I equip them with all the vendors, reminders, and answers to questions to tie up all their loose ends before their day arrives. Then when their day finally comes myself and our team are there to take care of it all, every detail attended to and every problem solved before they even have a chance to hear about it. The best part is being able to see the warmest and happiest of smiles of their faces, just enjoying it all! We work hard planning and organizing so that our couples can be guests and enjoy it fully instead of facilitating the event themselves.
Do you think conditions are generally improving for artists? What more can cities and communities do to improve conditions for artists?
Working together for a common goal, I believe the best thing we can do for each other is to stick together and to support one another. Recommendations, pointing people to where they should go, and overall encouragement so that more people can express their arts as well.
What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
Our website is actually being worked on right now as we are going through a rebranding, but we do have a website firstname.lastname@example.org. However, our Instagram is our best example of our work for now, blogs to come soon with the new website!
