CWEP Project2

Posted By Lyndsay B. Donovan, Saturday, December 30, 2017

Hi! My name is Lyndsay Donovan and I am currently in the last stretch of becoming a certified wedding and event planner through the University of Houston.  

I have learned a lot throughout doing this project, but the most important thing I learned was about how important a reputable vendors play.  It is so important to research the vendors you are choosing.

CWEP: Project 1

Posted By Josean Osorio, Thursday, December 28, 2017

Blessings! My name is Josean Osorio and I am 21 years old living in Milwaukee, WI. I have always had a passion for event planning since I was a child. I have always been inspired by David Tutera and everything he has done. Watching his tv show has motivated me to aspire to do what today I am grateful to be doing. I have always loved going into wedding boutiques and looking at the gorgeous gowns and tuxedos and inhaling the beautiful, captivating scenery of the place. I even have worn some of the tuxedos and role played being a groomsman in preparation for my future wedding someday. I remember in middle and high school, when I was in my literature class, I would always write stories around the idea of weddings because that's all that I would ever daydream of. Fast forward to today, I finally own my own business by the name: JMO Royal Designz. JMO stands for my first, middle and last name. I started back in April of 2017 with my cousins Gender Reveal and then it spiraled from there. I used to always do events for youth services in my church and small local events for family members and friends, and hearing the compliments from everyone saying, "You would be a great wedding and event planner, you should start your own business."This is all that I have ever wanted to do and now that I'm able to do it, I'm more than appreciative of the many doors that God is opening in my favor. I am also an aspiring fashion designer. Fashion is EVERYTHING to me aside from God. I have always been inspired by the GOATS in the fashion industry such as: Alexander McQueen, Coco Chanel, Calvin Klein, Alexander Wang, Vera Wang, Oscar de la Renta, Anna Wintour, Olivier Rousteing  (Balmain) and Moschino. Each designers designs have such a unique, edgy, elegant, and sophisticated touch to them that makes each stand out from one another. I desire to put together a strong, disciplined, unique, imaginative team that are self-driven and imaginative like myself. If I could do your job better than you, then there is no point for you to work for and with me. I need a team with fresh ideas and that can teach me many things and vise versa.

I have always been one to stand out from the crowd and never blend in. My style is defined as elegant, edgy, smooth and extravagant. I love slim fit, tailored suits that aren't worn by every man and fabrics like suede, leather, cotton and others. I am a trendsetter and leader of the pack. I love looking at inspirations from pinterest and runway shows. I love pieces of clothing that men usually wouldn't wear or even dare to wear. My style has always been out of this world if I do say so myself. Oscar de la Renta said, "Fashion is a trend. Style lives within a person." 

For my project 1, I have chosen to create my dream wedding. Throughout the years, you see how men don't usually give their input in what they would like to see at their wedding, they leave it all up to the bride to plan. I've never liked that idea. I've always admired the idea of the groom and the bride planning their wedding together and being both involved in the process, not just one carrying the load. At least from my perspective, I have always wanted a grand, dramatic wedding. Pure white, off white and gold are my color preferences. Fresh, white flowers hanging like water falls from the ceilings with hanging crystals and the same for the the centerpieces of each table for the guests. I love a floral, crystallized wedding that smells like a fresh, handpicked garden. Down below you get to see some ideas that I've found and gathered from pinterest that meet the criteria that I love. The simplicity, drama, elegance of each is what attracts me to this type of color scheme and theme.

Jude & Judith

Saturday, July 17th, 2015

Wedding planning services provided by Lord & Nike’s LLC., Roselle, NJ

 

Jude and Judith met through mutual friends on a business trip in Lagos, Nigeria. Jude is originally from Jos, Nigeria. Jude proposed with his late grandmother’s vintage ring. Their engagement announcements will include pictures of the couple taken at his parent’s vineyard in Jos. Judith and Jude have chosen to enlist the professional help of Lord & Nike’s LLC to assist with their special day and for help the day of the wedding. Judith also decided to have Lord & Nike’s LLC plan her bachelorette party. Judith and Jude love the warm weather in the summer and all the different variations of flower that bloom during that time. Their wedding will be held at The Honors Haven Resort & Spa in Ellenville NY. The resort has many beautiful trees, and a beautiful lake that shimmers into the horizon.

 Judith chose a classic A-line lace gown with cap sleeves. Her one attendant will wear a blue, floor length dress. The groom and his best man will wear dark blue suits with blue boutonnieres and white roses that match the bride’s bouquet. The décor will be reflected in the bouquet’s and the boutonnieres, incorporating white flowers and blue, blue LED lights and plenty of candle light.

The wedding will incorporate Christian values, and will be a short, simple ceremony. Her father will walk her down the aisle and give her away. Jude’s brother’s young children will serve as the ring bearer and flower girl. Pictures of the bride and groom and the wedding party will be taken between the ceremony and the reception. Guests will be served light hourderves and wine during the interim. The reception will incorporate a sit-down dinner with wines from Jude’s parent’s vineyard. After the meal, Jude and Judith will take part in the traditional cake cutting, and bouquet and garter toss during the reception. The reception will be approximately two to three hours, to allow guests to return to their homes or hotels early. Guests will be small rings and cologne or perfumes in appreciation of their attendance.

The new Mr. and Mrs. will send customizes thank you notes to all their guests that include a special picture taken at the wedding.

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Tonya Edwards, Tuesday, December 26, 2017

Hello,

My name is Tonya Edwards. I have never really had much experience in this field, but even doing this project made me feel like it's right for me. I live in a small town in Illinois and I put my all into this. For this project, I used my younger sister and her boyfriend as my test couple. I wanted their story, which seems to be really basic, but the fact that they're still together is amazing. They met through a mutual friend at a bar. They seem to have a similar vibe, which is good. I decided to sit down with them and get their input on what exactly they would want if they were actually getting married. Like most guys, Presley looked at my sister and said, "Whatever you want. Just tell me the time and place and I would be there if this were real." I did have to get some information from him though because I'm not really sure who he would want to stand up with him on his day. The couple each will have five people standing with them, well sort of. Turns out, on the groom's side their would only be four, but one empty spot would still be present. One of Presley's best friend's passed away earlier in 2017 in an automobile accident, so Presley asked me if it was okay if we left one spot open where his friend would have stood and I said ABSOLUTELY!

They chose a winery to get married at in May. The colors they chose were different shades of purple and grey. They have a family friend for photographs, a mutual friend to DJ the event, and since it would be a very small wedding, they asked their families if they would help cook food and they agreed. I enjoyed sitting down with my sister and her boyfriend to talk about such an occasion that may actually happen in the future. I also enjoyed contacting their friends and families to find out if their requests were even a possibility. I'm very excited to get into this business.

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Abigail Vasquez Bruton (Vasquez), Monday, December 25, 2017
Updated: Monday, December 25, 2017

My name is Abigail Vasquez Bruton and I own my own planning company called: Signature Events by Abby.  This work found me. I was given the tasks to plan and organize events at the corporate level for more than 9 years when I worked as an Executive Administrative Assistant for a VP of Online Banking, and as an Associate Administrative Assistant to the Dean of Student Services. I was the main coordinator for the annual awards ceremony at a local college. This is where I realized how much I love this work. It's like the feeling you get when "love finds you."  I love the entire process and seeing your work come to fruition on the day of event. I live in Florida where we plan beautiful destination weddings and corporate events. I feel very fortunate to be an important part of a love story or a success story.  A story expressed through details that we as planners get to coordinate and bring to life with our teams.  My goal is to hire 2 wedding coordinators to work with me. I would also like to have 1 wedding coordinator working out of a New York office, and 1 wedding coordinator working with me in Florida. I would like to hire 3 part-time assistants to help me update and monitor social media accounts, marketing and administrative assistance.  I enjoyed learning about different traditions and cultures and the intricate details that go into each aspect of the process, timelines and planning of events.  I liked how we were given ideas about themes, flowers and aspects that affect the different seasons of the year.  I love the checklist and email and phone inquiry examples used as guidelines.  I loved having access to various topics in the form of webinars.  I enjoyed learning from other students and becoming a part of the Lovegevity Planning Squad.  

In Project #1 My client Gaddy wanted a Bohemian rustic theme.  Her fiance Joe prefers rustic details.  He describes Gaddy as "Miss Fancy Pants."  They are polar opposites in most things. Gaddy and Joe met at a restaurant.  They were both with friends that day.  They were having a drink as they waited for their table to be ready. Joe was standing next to Gaddy and he was captured by the sound of her laughter.  He was so mesmerized by her laughter, that he turned around and started talking to her.  They had the best conversation and since that day, they have been inseparable.  One year and 8 months after they met, they are now engaged to be married in November 2018.   

Gaddy and Joe want a day filled with family, fun and good entertainment.  Gaddy likes top 40's and a variety of sounds: violin, guitar and jazz. Joe prefers Jazz and pop music.  They decided on a string quartet for their ceremony, a jazz band for the cocktail and wedding reception.  

Gaddy loves white orchids, and lace.  She describes herself as "understated elegance."   Joe says that he wants "simple comfort in his attire, and food." 

Wedding day vision: beautiful backdrop of South Beach for ceremony and cocktail reception.  Reception will be on grassy area next to beach.  Buffet of delicious varieties, rustic theme decor, and an amazing Jazz band playing during cocktail and wedding reception.  The night will end with Gaddy and Joe dancing to "Happy" by Pharrell.  It will be a wedding day that will be filled with fun, family, delicious food, and amazing entertainment.  A Bohemian rustic style Signature Wedding for Gaddy and Joe.

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Sarah Grelle, Saturday, December 23, 2017
Updated: Saturday, December 23, 2017

Hi all, 

My name is Sarah and I currently work at a Cancer Research and Treatment Center. I am the former executive event coordinator, though most of my experience is in corporate event planning. I began my college career in hospitality management with an emphasis in event planning, but ended up graduating with a degree in Psychology. After my experience as an event planner, I realized that I enjoyed it and wanted to see what direction that might take me. 
I am not yet at the point of wanting to own my own business, but I have enjoyed what this course has taught me. 

My mood board is a presentation of a wedding for Zach and Elle, a couple from Salt Lake City, Utah. It represents a classic, winter wedding incorporating some colors and themes from the Christmas season. The focus is on winter greenery and flowers, soft light from candles and Christmas lights, and the cozy, intimate evening setting of La Caille, a French themed estate in Sandy, Utah.

Loving the CWEP Course!

Posted By Jihan A. Francois, Friday, December 22, 2017

I can’t believe I’m almost done with my Certified Wedding & Event Planner course at Lovegevity. It’s been an amazing learning experience. I signed up last December, right before my 36th birthday. I was laid off from a marketing nonprofit job, for the THIRD time, living with my parents again for the first time since I was 23, and trying to figure out what my next step in life was. Family & friends had been telling me for years that I should start my own event planning business but I had been hesitant, after much self-reflection and prayer, I decided to take the leap and launch Amani Affairs. I already have my Bachelor’s and MBA but I know consumers feel most comfortable when their service provider has certifications, so I decided to enroll. I had big plans to breeze through the course and finish in three months but life happened – I got a part-time job AND started getting clients through word-of mouth referrals and advertising on Thumbtack. I didn’t expect to be so busy. When I focused on coursework, I enjoyed it and was learning a lot but my time was thin. Next thing I know, it’s September and I had to apply for class extensions and was second guessing my decision to get certified while launching my business. Now that I am almost done, I am so happy I persevered. I’ve learned so much through the projects, assignments, and online discussions/videos. I have great ideas and plans on how to expand and market my business and I am connected to an awesome community of like-minded planners and business owners. I am already trying to decide what course I am going to take next. Thank you, Lovegevity for everything!

I learned a lot from project 2.  Getting a bit more intimately familiar with the NY state marriage laws, the contracts, and other relevant documents was very insightful.  I also gained a great appreciation for the usefulness of pamphlets and presenting yourself professional from the start.

Hi, I am Shital "Sheela" Shah. I am a CPA and am bored of doing Accounting. I have always loved event planning and now I want to try planning weddings. I am still not sure how to get this going. I attended a wedding in India in November. It was so much fun. I have pinned some decoration ideas for Indian Weddings, using mostly fresh flowers, added some beautiful traditional center pieces. There is a colorful sofa for bride and groom to sit, all traditionally decorated with ethnic decors using bright colors.

My name is Jacquelyn Watson. My case study consists of two people whom met at a comedy club and 14 months later, they were engaged. This is a layout of just 8 pictures of what their wedding could look like. This is my first time putting together something like this but, I'm so impressed with the things I have learned and in the process have even came up with the name for my small business. So, I hope you enjoy and/or like the work from True Forever Wedding Planning
