My name is Sara Jansson and I’m based out in the beautiful Orange County area. I cracked the door into event planning by first starting in the hospitality and service industry. I’ve worked as a server, a banquet captain and event organizer. I have over 13+ years of experience of doing high-end, high volume events. I’m knowledgeable with food and wine pairings as a plus! My goal is to join an established company as one of their coordinators/planners. I want to specialize in design and styling, eventually starting my own company when the time is right.
For my project, I wanted to catch the essence of my couple by telling their love story from start to present. I did this by combing two elements (one representing each of the couple) in one location. For example, she’s a huge history buff and he’s favorite place in the world is to be in nature. I wanted to flow this idea throughout the wedding adding elements of contemporary elegance, as that is the couple’s overall style.
I’m enjoying this course and this project as both force you to think outside the box. I’m instinctually an artsy person. This project, course and field of work has opened a unique creative outlet for me.
