Hello Everyone :)
My name is Shanna I’ve lived most of my life in Florida and have currently lived in Jacksonville, FL for 15 years. I’ve been and Administrative Assistant a.k.a. Secretary for almost 30 years. I’ve spent most of my career working for big companies University of Florida, VyStar Credit Union, Winn Dixie and now CSX. I’ve planned many different events while working for these companies such as visitor luncheons, holiday parties/potlucks, team member building events at outside venues, executive conference (400 attendees) at on-site campus with in-house vendors and assisted with a few friend’s weddings.
As a new student trying to open her own Wedding & Event Planning business from the ground up my biggest challenge is finding clients. I’m hoping once I begin doing internships it will open the door for me to start meeting brides-to-be.
Since I currently do not have a business my fictitious couple is John Smith and Jennifer Polly. John & Jennifer are both in the US Navy, which is where they first met. Jennifer worked weekends at the commissary on base at NAS JAX. The first time John saw Jennifer in her apron it was love at first sight. John proposed to Jennifer at Christmas 2019. Since both are not sure if they will be transferred again in the near future they want to get married in September 2020, so they will be transferred together.
Due that Jennifer and John are both in the Navy they will focus the theme of their wedding on it. So, the couple has picked out Peach, Navy & Gold to be their wedding colors, which you’ll find out throughout the event (i.e., wedding invitations, linens, cake, party favors, etc.
