We had the good fortune of connecting with Heather Balliet and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Heather, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
Mainly my inspiration comes from our couples! We really dive into getting to know them and the things they love. From there, interior design, textures, color, music, words, and traditions inspire me! I am always looking to do something that has never been done! I love a clever turn of phrase!
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
We love telling a story! 17 years ago we introduced the industry to concept oriented weddings and we are known for carrying a cohesive theme throughout our events. We were inspired by our couples, their interests, how they met, and how they are unique and have continued to weave these elements together down to the very last tiny detail to create the most magical day they will remember for the rest of their lives. We are known for our one of a kind color palates, elements of surprise, and elegant romance paired with whimsical touches.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would first start by grabbing breakfast at Jeune et Jolie in downtown Carlsbad. After we would walk along the beaches at Tamarack and we would definitely make a stop at One Paseo for some shopping at Pigment! Grabbing a quick lunch at Parakeet to keep us energized for a beautiful hike at Torrey Pines! For dinner we would swing by Campfire and top off the night with the yummiest of ice cream from Handels while watching the sunset.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Back up Backdrops! My husband Troy has offered an endless amount of support and love throughout my journey with our family and making Amorology what it is today as he has also grown his business along at Back up Backdrops alongside ours! He is an endless source of collaboration and inspiration to me.
