I am an event planner for a living but have never done a wedding, so this was a challenge. I loved putting Project 1 together and felt that all the required assignments really helped prepare my final project. I contacted three venues in order to get a realistic picture of what the rental and catering fees were. It felt as if I were planning a real wedding. I choose to plan a wedding for my co-worker who recently got engaged. Her and her boyfriend met online via a dating application. He's from the mid-west and they both have a love for the outdoors and animals. I used this information as the base for planning this wedding and tying together the theme, color, attire and the other A8 elements. This aided in providing a timeline for the planning process up until the day of the wedding, which is scheduled to take place in the Spring of 2018. I chose a Rustic Chic theme for this wedding and gave several options for a barn and outdoor venues that would tie into this theme. Below you will find my Pinterest links for each of the A8.
