We had the good fortune of connecting with Brandi Paris and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brandi, what do you attribute your success to?
When I hear the word “success” in regards to my business, I think about my clients and their willingness to trust me and my team. My clients believe in Next Chapter Weddings, because we are genuine and wholeheartedly invested in the success of their wedding day. We are fueled by their love stories and are honored to be a part of bringing their wedding vision to life. Potential Clients can see this through the way we carry ourselves across social media and even more so when they finally meet us in person! My team is experienced and we genuinely love what we do. Our clients are satisfied with our performance leading up to and on their wedding days, because our passion, communication and eye for details meets, if not exceeds, their expectations.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Next Chapter Weddings is the purest representation of what my heart loves and desires. True love is hard to find, but when you find it, you never want to let go. When you know, you know. And for couples that “know”, they are ready to begin the “next chapter” of their lives together and that’s where we come in! I truly care about my clients and their love for one another. I LOVE to hear their Love Stories!! Honestly, at the end of the day, I just want to be surrounded by genuine love. And I am so honored that I get to do that while serving my clients with my skills and passion. I am currently most excited about the team I have built with other phenomenal vendors in the wedding industry. I do not require my clients to book my recommended vendors, but when they do, I know the event will flow smoothly because we all work together so well- there is so much talent there! How did I get here? I lost a love. And while I was mourning the loss of that love, I realized that true, genuine love is worth celebrating, believing/hoping in, fighting/making sacrifices for, etc. I believed in the peace and comfort that true love brings and I wanted to remind everyone that I know how beautiful that is! Love is worth celebrating and I would be honored to be able to help couples do that. I also have been certified as a Wedding Planner and have a business degree and business owning/operating experience under my belt. All of this combined has set me up for great success! The biggest lesson I have learned is that if you are genuine, people will see. LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE! If I could pick one thing for the world to know about me and my company, NEXT CHAPTER WEDDINGS, it would be that I am drawn towards love and my company genuinely cares about our couples and their love journey before, during and after their weddings!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I do not go out as often as I would like, but I would encourage everyone to try alllllll the amazing food! Houston has some of the most amazing food in the world! Definitely check out the Dunlavy!!! Places to visit? The Waterwall, the Graffiti building in East Downtown, Buffalo Bayou Park and Discovery Green.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I have to give a huge Shoutout to my parents and sisters who always believe in me and are never surprised when I reach my goals. They truly believe I can do anything I set my heart and mind to even when I have doubts or fears. This can also be said about many of my friends. I am so blessed to be surrounded by so many people who believe in me.
