"Parties & Memories" it's a dream come true.
I always liked parties, and working with my hands.
It's something I would do with my mom and grandmother.
When my son was born he had to spend a lot of time in the ICU.
It was a very traumatic experience for me. I had a really hard time.
It was then that I noticed many parents don't hold any type of celebration for their newborn babies.
That really touched me.
So I came up with the idea of planning parties, celebrating the newest addition to the family.
I started by myself, but very quickly I needed some help.
So I decided to find a partner.
I talked about it with some friends.
Telling them "guys, I could really use a partner...who's in?"
Eventually, one day Raísa looked at me and asked: "Is this for real?"
And I told her: "yes, I'm serious!"
She said she was interested, so we got talking to work out the details on how to get this going.
Our idea was really interesting,
but the question was how to turn this into a professional business.
Our first step was to build a website.
That's when we found out about Wix.com.
We were surprised how easy it was to build our own website.
We designed it ourselves.
The best part was that we didn't need anyone else.
We now can keep our website up-to-date without needing a designer or developer.
Our website is our storefront.
We want it to feature the incredible things we do.
With every new event that we host,
our work keeps getting better and better,
and we want that to be reflected in our site ASAP.
With Wix, that's very easy to do. I take a picture, I get home and I update the website myself.
I don't need any help.
A lot of our clients originate from our website.
We receive between 5 and 7 new quote requests through our website every week.
Wix allowed us to grow much faster than we were expecting.
