What does your business do and how it started

My business started on September 2021, I started this business not just to create elegant and unusual designs but to also create tremendous memories that will last forever.
I have always had a passion for this, because all the time I was in school I was engaged in usher jobs, and whenever I entered the hall, it seems like magic, so I’ve always wanted to know how the magic was created and that was how I enrolled in an event academy and became a certified event planner and a decorator.
