Hello Everyone,

Its Cathy!! Originally from west Africa, I am passionate about celebrations so how much better to be part than to be part of the planning and organisation. I am really excited about this program and all the opportunities that await me at the end of it all.Working on this second project has enlightened me on  branding,packaging and pricing of my services. It has also broaden my knowledge on the responsibilities of an event planner.

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Nadia A. Ehia (Nadia Ali), Thursday, October 5, 2017

Hi everyone!

My name is Nadia Ehia and I live in Arlington, Texas. I am enrolled in the wedding & event planning college course at the University of Texas at Arlington. I'm also an alumni of the university- I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Advertising degree. I currently work for an e-commerce/digital marketing agency as a Senior Analyst in Program Management. Although I love my job, I am ready to chase my dream and do something I am passionate about. I've been a natural planner since I was young and as I got older, friends and family began asking me for help in planning their events. Last year, I planned my own wedding and fell in love with the process. Since then, I've planned and coordinated four weddings. My plan is to launch my own wedding and event planning business upon completing this course. 

 The project that I am presenting is a cozy and intimate wedding in the mountains with a bohemian vibe. The couple preferred an intimate destination wedding surrounded by nature. The colors I chose are light and airy shades of blue and grey to enhance the natural colors of the mountains and trees. The ceremony and reception will take place outdoors. We will use florals, greenery, wood, candles and string lights to create the perfect, whimsical atmosphere. The venue is a private mountain lodge in Silverthorne, CO and sits on 40 acres of land. The lodge sleeps 20 so the couple along with their wedding party will stay in the house all week to celebrate. There will be a nearby hotel with a room block for additional guests.

My Experience as a Lovegevity Student

Posted By Lauren Grzymala, Wednesday, April 12, 2017

I can remember being a senior in high school, not really having any clue what I wanted to do with my career. I selected a local college, majoring in Criminal Justice and minoring in Spanish. I woke up for my classes every day, never really feeling motivated or interested in the material I was learning. After a year and a half in a major I hated, I decided I should take a break from college to focus on my work experience, and to figure out my passions. It didn't take long for me to figure out how much I loved working with people, and through planning my own wedding, the events leading up to it, and other parties for family and friends, I discovered my true passion was in wedding and event planning. I researched schools and programs endlessly, wanting to ensure I chose the perfect one to give me an edge in the industry.

I was reading a blog about the topic when I came across the link for The Wedding Planning Institute by Lovegevity. After yet more research, and with the guiding and supportive hand of my husband, I enrolled in the courses with Lovegevity, and I can honestly say I could not have made a better decision with where to further my education. Lovegevity gave me so much more than just the knowledge of the industry. I wasn't just majoring in Wedding and Event Planning; I also majored in Social Media Marketing, Business, and even got a glance into Legal processes. This program has already given me an edge unlike any other, at a time where there is an amazing market opportunity for my business.

If you would have told me three years ago that I would be getting my certification in Wedding and Event Planning and starting my own business, I would have walked away in disbelief. Now, I have the strength, confidence, and knowledge to take me further than I ever would have dreamed, in a field I could not be more passionate or in love with. Thank you, Lovegevity, for helping me find my way when I had no direction, and for giving me the knowledge and skills to build my dream career!

What an Experience!

Posted By Joyce Govrin, Sunday, December 4, 2016

I can’t believe there are only two classes left and we are presenting our final project this week. Wow! What an experience! While challenging at times, this course has given me the knowledge and tools to be able to realize my dream in opening a business in event planning.  I have learned from the details of a wedding ceremony and how to create a wedding timeline, to actually create a budget, put together a business plan and market my business on social media!  A very thorough and complete course.  Thank you LWPI.

My time as a LWPI Student

Posted By Christina Grier, Tuesday, August 30, 2016

It's crazy realizing my first course with Lovegevity is almost coming to an end. I'm excited about finishing up these last projects and assignments and preparing to take the exam. Had I started out on my own trying to get my wedding planning business off the ground, it would have been much more difficult. Now, with the help of LWPI and the training I've received as a soon-to-be certified wedding and event planner, I have so much more confidence to go out and meet brides to help them plan their wedding day.

That's what I feared most prior to starting this class. A wedding day is one of the most momentous occasions in life. I would have hated if I'd dont anything (even unintentional) to mess up or dampen a Bride's big day. I now feel confident in what I'm doing, and know I'm capable of walking a couple through the process to plan their wedding. It's also great timing since my boyfriend just proposed 2 weeks ago, so now I get to be my own first client! As I begin to plan my own wedding, I will put to use what I've learned, and will see through trial and error, what works and what may have been better left to other professionals. The most important thing I've taken away though is to use my own advice. I believe all Bride's should hire at least a day-of coordinator if possible. So while I'll be the guinea pig in planning this first wedding, I will hire a month-of coordinator to hand over all the details to make my day perfect.

Thank you LWPI for teaching me so much! I'm excited for what's to come.

-Christina

My Experience with Lovegevity

Posted By Kristina Akhmametyeva, Tuesday, August 16, 2016
Updated: Tuesday, August 16, 2016

       Being a student of the Lovegevity Wedding Planning Institute has been rewarding. Wedding planning has always been something I was really interested in and passionate about, but I started out in the science and medical field. I was aspiring to be a dentist, until I lost someone very dear to me, which made me reanalyze my life. So, I had made the decision to venture out of my comfort life path to try something I loved as much as dentistry. After doing some research online, I came across Lovegevity Wedding Planning Institute. Now I am near the end of my first course and introduction to wedding and event planning industry.  

       My experience as a student of Longevity has been a new and exciting because I didn't know a lot of the ins and outs of this industry and I have gained respect. This course has provided me with the knowledge that I needed to get started as a wedding planner and hopefully soon a successful business owner. I do however still need to get more experience in the field and am looking forward to many internship opportunities. Lovegevity has provided ample networking connections and options for event planners. The assignments and projects will be useful for me once I start my business. Overall, I enjoyed this course and would recommend this course to other aspiring wedding and event planners.
