CWEP Project 1

Posted By Angela Diaz (Diaz), Friday, January 24, 2020

Hey y'all!  My name is Angela Diaz from Chino, CA and I'm currently enrolled in CWEP course at the University of La Verne led by instructor, Rebecca Calagna (she's awesome, btw!).  I am known as the “party girl” within my community of friends and family which is why I've decided to take this course and possibly turn my passion into a career.  I truly enjoy it!  I currently work for a large beverage company and plan corporate and social events for their executive leadership team.

The theme of my mood board is Bohemian Chic.  My client's vision is to marry the love of her life in Joshua Tree, CA as this is the location where they first met.  Hues of dusty rose, olive green, grays and cream will be the color accents of their special day.  They chose pale flowers and macramé accents which will be displayed and provide that boho feel throughout the venue.  They are kids at heart and have incorporated yard games and a fun photo booth for their guests.  Guests will also enjoy a sweet table, crazing table during cocktail hour and a sit down pre-fixed menu.

Thank you for viewing my project and I'm open to any feedback you may have.

Project 2: Selling Your Services

Posted By Gabrielle Carter, Thursday, January 23, 2020

 

Carter Creations is an event planning company that specializes in party and event planning for social engagements, life celebrations, and corporate events such as birthday parties, baby showers, bridal showers, wedding proposals, and launch parties for businesses.

My mission is to provide quality service through unique and innovative design to event planning to help take the guess work and stress away from clients so they can spend more time making memorable moments. 

I chose to focus more on social or corporate planning as that is where my passions lie. I am also in the developmental stages of branding and designing my own travel and travel accessories line (luggage and travel pieces) and have the opportunity to merge both careers together.   

I find that the majority of event planning businesses put their focus on the wedding industry and I am here to cater to clients who want their baby shower or 50th birthday to feel just as unique and memorable as any grand event.

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Brianna Hamlow, Thursday, January 23, 2020

Hello everyone! My name is Brianna Hamlow, I am from San Dimas, California and currently working on my certification with Rebecca Calagna at the University of La Verne. I graduated from Azusa Pacific University with my B.A. in Communication Studies a little over a year ago.I currently work at Red Robin in my hometown as a waitress, just trying to take action for a chance at some real life experience in my career path. My plan is to begin an internship or a job where planning is involved and break into a more secure planning position hopefully within the same company to build rapport. 

I am feeling for the first time ever the desire to read and engage myself intensely with this class and it has me so excited to continue on this path. I am doing my first project in inspiration of a friend of mine who has been with her boyfriend for over 8 years now. My goodness it is time for them to tie the knot! They both love all things Disney, especially lilo and stitch, and both are pretty laid back and comfortable type of people. Here is the best collage I feel I put together for their wedding, hopefully you can see the feeling I am trying to convey of the actual day.

For this project i created a musical themed wedding mood board. I thought of a musical themed wedding because of my love for music and how every wedding has great music, so why not a once in a lifetime music themed wedding! An amazing vivid music experience for everyone to have a great time at the wedding with good food beautiful colors and awesome party favors and of course a dope guestbook record to sign!

CWEP Project 3 Mood Board

Posted By Yessenia Jarvey, Monday, January 20, 2020

Hello Beautiful Planners!

My name is Yessenia from Great Falls, MT and I am hosting the Grand Opening of " All You Need is Love" Wedding and Events. For my grand opening I went with a semi-formal chic theme. The color scheme is black and silver with gold accents. I thought this would be a classy yet elegant way to show case my event. I can honestly say this has been such a fun yet knowledgeable experience. I went into this course completely un aware of what a wedding planner was. All I knew is I loved planning, helping others, designing and of course weddings. Now that I am at the end of this course I feel more confident and thrilled about this field. 

When creating my grand opening I wanted a theme that all people can relate and feel welcomed to. Sticking with the classic black and silver theme allowed the guests to have a variety of ideas for attire. Along with the classic black attire I choose a apatite that was classic. A simple yet delicious plate of spaghetti with wine. I wanted the event to feel classy yet elegant. When it came to amusement I thought, what better way to have a classical spaghetti dinner then with a small band. Sense this was an event for the community to enjoy I thought having part of the community orchestra apart of the event would be a great touch.

Lastly, as for philanthropy I wanted the event to contribute to our local Animal Shelter. Animals are near and dear to my heart therefore I wanted to add something meaningful to me towards the event. I had so much fun with this assignment and I cant wait to fulfill my career of Wedding Planning. Thank you to Lovegevity for providing this course to help me achieve my dreams!

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Angelina Guagliardo, Sunday, January 19, 2020

Hello, my name is Angelina and I am from Chicago. I went to Loyola University for business, then proceeded to go to Kendall College for my culinary degree. I am currently working as a catering coordinator, and plan menus/coordinate staff for different types of events from birthday parties, graduations, to even weddings.

I have been catering events for about seven years now, and recently decided that I wanted to expand my planning knowledge and experience, and that was when I decided to sign up for this course. My future goal for myself after this course will be to make a career change, particularly in the wedding/event planning field. The only experience I have in the field is catering these events, which like I did with this project, involves a lot of planning and working with other vendors.

While I was working on this project some of it came easy to me, but I had to use a lot of what I learned in the chapters as well. I am very proud of what I put into the project, and put a lot of my own personality in it. The wedding I planned is a Fall/Halloween affair and will be taking place in October, and it will have an elegant Gothic vibe. The menu will be full of Fall flavors, from the first course to the dessert table. The color scheme will be on the darker side, the bridesmaids and groomsmen will be wearing maroon and black. Any guests that walk into not only the venue, but ceremony, will see a Till’ Death Do Us Part theme throughout.

My perfect wedding would be in a very different environment than the environment in which I grew up. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, my closest friends reside there like many of my relatives. I would love to offer to them a new and beautiful experience. 

I would love to celebrate my wedding in the winter, looking for details to make it happens was an  amazing learning experience.

CWEP Project 1.3 - Mood Board

Posted By Mary E. Tindle (Green), Saturday, January 18, 2020
Updated: Tuesday, February 4, 2020

Hi everyone, my name is Mary Tindle and I live in Katy, Texas, a part of the greater Houston area. For the last 20 years I have enjoyed a career in the oil and gas industry in which I started right out of college as a low-level drafter and worked my way up to Design Supervisor running the drafting group. I was able to accomplish this due to my leadership skills and ability to adapt to ever changing requirements and time schedules while maintaining deadlines and satisfying the client. However, the oil and gas industry is unpredictable with more and more jobs going overseas, so now is a great time to change careers to something that I am very passionate about, wedding and event planning. My ultimate goal is to have my own wedding and event planning business, with a flair for unique, themed, and eccentric events. Being in the Houston area and close to cities like San Antonio and Austin, there are lots of possibilities for large events that I would love to plan.


While I have no professional experience in event planning, I have planned several parties and events such as my own vow renewal ceremony that was extremely well received. I have planned baby showers and parties for friends and family. I put together a Halloween extravaganza a few years back, which included a haunted house that I designed and built. Our house was voted #1 decorated house in our subdivision and years later, people still ask if we are doing it again and have even offered to help with set up. I love to use my creativity to plan, organize, coordinate, and decorate any event and party possible from conception through execution. I can accomplish this by using my extensive design and leadership skills that I've developed over the years.

I chose to attend the Certified Master Wedding and Events course through Texas A&M. I am loving every minute of it so far. To see my visions take on a definition of their own is such a delight for me. I have a huge imagination with an enormous amount of creativity that has been aching to get out. For me, the sky is the limit. I can catalyze anyone’s vision and make their dream event come true. Once I get started, there is no stopping me.

For project 1, My couple is Hannah Davis and Alex Baker and this is their story:

Hannah and Alex met through a mutual friend at work. In their spare time, they immerse themselves in a world full of fantasy and adventure. Their quirky personalities and lighthearted approach to life are a perfect match. As avid adventurers, they are often inspired by Steampunk designs rooted in the 19th century culture where fantasy meets futuristic fashion, style and art characterized by the industrial revolution. They have requested a “Vintage Victorian Steampunk” inspired wedding experience. They're wedding is planned for June 14th, 2021 which is recognized as International Steampunk Day.

The couple both love vibrant shades of berry and lavender complimented with green and gold. Beautiful bouquets and tablescapes filled with floral combinations of burgundy calla lilies, dark red roses, hypericum berries and natural foliage accented with golden gadgets and gears paired with the natural glow of soft vintage lighting make for a very dreamy atmosphere.

CWEP Mood Board

Posted By Alia Griffin, Friday, January 17, 2020
Updated: Friday, January 17, 2020

Hello all :)

My name is Alia. I am a Southern California native more specifically from the San Gabriel Valley area. I have my bachelors degree in Psychology and my most recent experience includes being a Social Worker in Los Angeles County. I ventured into this program because I wanted to combine my passion for working with people, my organization skills and my natural desire to bring people together for an event into a career. For my mood board, I chose to do a Woodland themed wedding. The fictitious bride and groom for this wedding bonded over their enjoyment for adventure and outdoor activities. The rustic elements and simplistic nature of the design speaks to the brides personal style however it adds a touch of romance

CWEP Mood Board

Posted By Anita Downs (Downs), Thursday, January 16, 2020

My name is Anita,  I live in Southern California and have lived here all of my life.  I have ventured into this career as I have always loved decorating, planning and organizing our family and friend parties. I have chosen to do my Mood Board on a Spring wedding here in California.  I hope that you find the board pleasing to you. 

I did have a hard time trying to understand Canva and still not completely comfortable with the site.  I would have liked to have chose a better layout to better showcase the actual board.

CWEP Assignment #1.3 - Creating a Pinterest Account

Posted By Shanna Parrott, Thursday, January 16, 2020

Original Post URL:  https://www.lovegevity.university/blogpost/1835332/SP-s-Assignments-and-Projects

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.

Look for more details coming soon in my Project #1 – Plan a Social Event or Wedding blog.

Project 1

Posted By Samatha Rice, Thursday, January 16, 2020
Updated: Saturday, January 25, 2020

Hello,

I'm Samatha. I'm from Oklahoma City. I currently have a career as an Emergency Room RN and business owner. My husband and I own Barnwood Bark which is a business for dog lovers! My husband and I are dog lovers and wanted to make our hobby into a retirement plan. Currently, working full time in the Emergency Room can be a little stressful and can run you down. With todays society the emergency room is very much abused and rarely do you get a patient that is appreciative instead of demanding. Over time I reevaluated my career and tried several other areas of nursing. I found they were all the same and it is just how society is at this time. Therefore, I decided to find something else that I can slowly transition into to get out of nursing. We have our business, but I needed something to do when we are not busy with that. I planned our wedding over 2 years and loved doing this. After a lot of research and personality test I came to the gut feeling this is what I am supposed to do in life. 

Project 1 tells a story about Glenna and Tyke. They met in a court house while Tyke was paying one of his motorcycle tickets. Her love for elegance and his love for motorcycles are combines in their specialized wedding celebration. During this project I learned a lot about the basics of wedding planning. There is so much time that goes into it. Researching all the vendors around me brought me back to researching for my wedding. I found the hardest part was putting it all together in the final project. I enjoyed how detail oriented this project required me to be. I am a very detail oriented person and that is also what made me start this career. 

Thank you for your time! I'm so excited about this journey!

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Manny Mandapat, Monday, January 13, 2020

Hi Everyone - My name is Manny Mandapat and I live in the San Francisco/Bay Area (California). With a Masters in Business & Public Administration and a Bachelors in Public Administration, my background is in government accounting, analysis, budgeting, and management. Currently, I work for the City & County of San Francisco as an Operations Supervisor. Ever since I was young, I always had the knack of planning events, especially the design side of it. In fact, I was chosen to design the event space where our department held its annual holiday party, which turned out to be a success. I hope to utilize my creativity, work experience, and skills not only to open my own business one day, but to also inspire others. I strongly believe this industry is evolving, and I want to be a part of it.

This is my first week at Lovegevity. I am excited to learn new things and do the class projects. With the proper guidance and self-motivation, I hope I can do well in the program. In doing this first project, I recognize how important it is to be detailed in choosing a design/image. It has to tie in together.

For my mood board, I decided on a "Rustic Winter" wedding theme. I decided to choose Winter since it is the current season. I then added the rustic theme as I do enjoy the design and elements that come with it. When I think of a "Rustic Winter" wedding, I visualize candles, wood, lights, snow, pines/cones, etc. Overall, the theme/mood gives a sense of warmth and simplicity.

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Courtney M. Lussier, Monday, January 13, 2020
For this first project I choose a winter themed wedding. After reviewing the first section of this course, it mentioned not many brides find January to be a favorable time to get married. Although, getting married in a colder month rather an a peak season month, you have some perks such as cheaper rates and amazing snow covered photos! Winter weddings have always peaked my interest and I feel as they are the most flexible for design as you can throw in some pops of Spring/Summer colors without losing the cozy winter feeling. The mood board I created is for the elegant but simple, winter bride.

CWEP Project 1.3

Posted By Raquel Campbell, Sunday, January 12, 2020
For my mood board assignment, I choose to present a simple wedding with a defined color scheme. The bridesmaids are wearing different colors that all compliment each other, while highlighting the overall theme of the wedding. The flower décor, favor table, and cake, follow suit. With an evening backdrop in the woods, an exit with sparklers would be a great way to end the reception. The colors I chose were a variation of greens, blues, pinks, and white.

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Madi Pavel, Friday, January 10, 2020
Hi I'm Madi! I'm from Minnesota and I'm currently studying education. I'm studying to become a teacher, but for many years now I have had an interest in wedding planning so I decided I needed to learn more and see if this is something I should pursue. I have always been a planner and I hope to be able to use these skills as a wedding planner someday. So far, this class has been very interesting, fun and eye opening for me. I had little knowledge coming into it so it has been amazing to learn all of the ins and outs. It has also been difficult having to learn everything at once, but it's giving me the full picture. The wedding I planned is simple but romantic with the main color theme being greenery and white. The other colors are blue and mauve. They want the ceremony to be at a garden venue and the reception to be at an indoor venue. I have found that you learn a lot along the way as you research and problem-solve.

Project #1

Posted By Chrystal Stroman, Tuesday, January 7, 2020

Hello my name is Chrystal Stroman and I am from Harlem, New York. I have a degree in Human Services with a concentration in Mental Health. I work in hospitality and love interacting with people and making sure they are having a good time. From a young age I always had a knack for decorating and being able to take the simplest things and transforming them into something beautiful and sophisticated. Currently I am the go to person for all my friends and family when it comes to events big and small.

Along with being a professional event planner I will like to also like to be a party rental supplier, from small things like table decor to larger items like table, chairs, and tents. This is my last week at Longevity and it has truly been a hate love relationship. I hated doing the two weddings I have done and realized through this course that weddings are probably the only events I would stray away from. I love my instructor and how she made each obstacle I face more approachable. I love how I was taught the admin side of the business like pricing, contracts, vendor relations and everything else that gets lost when planning an event.

For my mood board I decided on a “Pretty In Pink” summer wedding theme. I visualized nice weather, lots of flowers and a course hints of pink tied into every aspect from the decor to the wedding cake.

Project 1

Posted By Yolanda M. Gaston, Saturday, January 4, 2020

I am Yolanda Gaston. I live in Miami.I have seen my mom in the event planning industry for years now. My plan is to be one of the best wedding and event planner in Miami and expand my mom's business.

I learn how to use different tools by taking this course. I used pinterest and Canva to create my mood boards needed for that project.

I plan a spring wedding for a couple. They decided to have their wedding in spring because the bride was born in spring. 29 is a special number for  the couple, therefore, Yoly and Momo are getting married on Yoly's 26th birthday; which is going to be on March 29th.
