PROJECT 1: PLAN A SOCIAL EVENT OR WEDDING

Posted By Twala Lockhart, Thursday, June 29, 2017

HI, my name is Twala Lockhart and I thoroughly enjoyed working on this  project. I  learned so much about all of the details that go in to planning a wedding,  and didn't realize  the value of having a wedding planner until now.  Coming up with the mood board and the presentation was easy.  However, the logistics of lining up  vendors and composing a timeline was a challenge. But  I was able to complete it all and I think everything turned out beautifully. I can't  wait for the next project!

Being a Student at LWPI

Posted By Lauren Pope, Wednesday, June 28, 2017
Updated: Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Hello-

 

My name is Lauren. I have been a student for longer than a year. I did not focus my efforts into completing this when I should have. Now that I am almost there, I can taste the future and the opportunity that will be at my door. Being a student here at Lovegevity has given me the tools to move forward in a career that I have always wanted to be in. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to explore this option. Good luck to all the other students who are on their way to the wedding planning world!

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Crystal Devin Fisher, Tuesday, June 27, 2017
Updated: Tuesday, June 27, 2017

I am Crystal Fisher. I am currently the sales & event manager at an event venue in Houston. I've worked at venues since I started in the hospitality industry, and I truly enjoy being the venue representative. My venue is full service, so we provide the food & beverage service in addition to the space. I am taking this course to better serve the brides and other clients that book my venue for their special events. Completing project 1 was a fun, and sometimes, challenging process. As a sales manager at a venue, I'm never involved in coordinating vendors like attire, invitations, transportation or floral. Working on this project has given me a little more experience in this error. I was able to incorporate ideas that I've seen work at other events, add things that I thought were missing when I've done other event, and avoid things that I've seen fail. One of my favorite spaces in Houston--aside from mine--is the Hobby Center for Performing Arts. I created a couple and their vision based on the space and it's potential. The Hobby Center has these long windows and asymmetrical shape that screams modern, so I created a modern and ultra-chic event that doesn't shy away from the personal touches or guest amenities. I walk through the entire A8 formula, slide by slide, in addition to budget breakdown and vendor information. The sleek steel, black and white design of Lance and Alicia's wedding is really a treat!

Glamour Wedding

Posted By Teresa Denson, Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Hello everyone,

My name is Teresa Denson. I live in Spring, Texas. I have assisted family and friends in planning events in the past. I have had no official training in this business. I am hoping by the end of this course I have a better understanding of how to run an event planning business. I also would like to intern with a wedding planner real soon. I am a licensed registered nurse for 13 years but I truly believe God has gifted us with more than one talent. Planning events gets me really excited!! I can't wait to get started in this booming industry. I am in a class with some amazing ladies that I know will be awesome as well!

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Shanna Danielle Doty, Monday, June 26, 2017
Hello! My name is Shanna Doty! I'm from The Woodlands, Texas. I just recently moved back to Texas from North Carolina. Before starting to learn more about wedding and event planning I was a Cheer and Dance Coach at the college level in North Carolina. I have loved my experience so far in this class. I'm learning so much about what it takes to be a successful wedding planner. This project was great because it showed me exactly how much goes into planning a wedding. I had so much fun doing the research and looking at potential venues. It was a lot of work but it didn't feel like work because I was enjoying it! My inspiration for this project was Disney's The Princess and the Frog. I incorporated a 1920's New Orleans atmosphere while adding subtle Disney touches like the firefly centerpieces and signature drink!

Project 1 Blog Post

Posted By Ariana Elizabeth Silva, Monday, June 26, 2017
My name is Ariana Silva and I'm from Las Vegas, Nevada, but I just recently moved to Cypress, Texas in June of 2016. I am a recently graduate of Cy-Fair High School, class of 2017! My goal as an event planner is to work for an corporation and be their head event coordinator there where I will plan happy hours, luncheons, dinners, galas, etc. My experience in this course so far has been mind blowing! I've learned so much knowledge about everything that goes along with event planning from starting your own business, to floral arrangements, to the continuing education requirements it takes to be an event coordinator. This project gave me a good look into how much goes into planning an event and also gave me a good formula to use when planning to assure you hit every key note. My project is an elegant fall wedding in Houston, Texas, with the color scheme of navy blue and burnt orange with hints of dark brown. I worked very hard on this project and I hope that comes across as people look over it!

Required Assignment Mood Board

Posted By Marianne Mijares, Friday, June 23, 2017
Updated: Thursday, July 6, 2017

My name is Marianne and I am currently the Director of Events for the University of Miami Frost School of Music.  I strongly believe in professional development and thought that obtaining my Certification in Wedding and Event Planning would add to my current experience.  The inspiration for the board I created is based on my co-worker who recently got engaged.  She met her boyfriend on an online dating application named Hinge, that was linked to your friends on Facebook.  They are in their mid-twenties and this would be the first marriage for both of them.  He is from the mid-west and a true gentleman, hence the rustic chic theme.  They want a classy but simple wedding that incorporates both their taste and background.  I have a sincere appreciation for Wedding Planners, especially since I know how much research and time goes into creating each event.  Looking forward to completing Project #1 and learning the tricks of the trade.

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Nashara d. Mayhew, Thursday, June 22, 2017
Updated: Thursday, June 22, 2017

Hello!  My name is Nashara Mayhew, and I never know how to answer the question "Where are you from?" because I'm from all over!  I was born in Louisiana and moved to Missouri as a toddler and was there until about 10 years old.  After that, I moved to Texas for about six years and then moved to Atlanta for a year.  I attended undergrad in North Carolina until 2015, and I moved back to Texas where I currently reside - so I'll leave it to you to answer that question!  I currently work for Big Brothers Big Sisters in Irving where I partner with high school students as they connect with their mentors throughout their high school journey.

I've definitely enjoyed this course so far!  I love hearing about different weddings and the instructor's experiences with her wedding planning business.  This project was pretty intense for me - I never realized how many small details go into planning a wedding.  Every time I thought I was finished, I realized I left another detail out!  It's definitely fun coming up with an idea and what you want an event to look like, but it's difficult and time-consuming to work out all of the logistics.  This will definitely be something to work on in the future.

I have some childhood friends who are currently in a serious relationship.  There hasn't been a proposal yet, but they definitely know and have talked about spending the rest of their lives together.  This couple is who I based my project on, so essentially when he is ready to pop the question, the planning process would have already been started through my project.  My couple is definitely far from traditional, and they wanted two completely different vibes between the ceremony and reception, so that was a challenge trying to bring it all together.  I had fun, and I look forward to showing them some of my ideas.  My mood board is below and link to wixsite is https://nasharamayhew.wixsite.com/mysite.

This is my first college course but what a wonderful experience.  I am retired from a 30 year career from a government job and so enjoy being able to use my creativity and learn new programs as well.  I would love to be a wedding planner because it would bring me joy to help create a once in a lifetime wedding to each and every couple I would have the pleasure of doing business with.

My Lovegevity Experience

Posted By LaQuoia Gibson, Thursday, June 22, 2017

What a journey this has been. I have learned so much taking this course. When I first decided I wanted to be an event planner, it was while assisting my aunt with her event company. I had the chance to work behind the scenes with planning, calling vendors, setting the stage, and all moving parts involved.

While speaking with a flower vendor one day, she mentioned this course and how she wanted to take the flower design class. She recommended that I also take a look at it. After looking at the website, i knew this was the class for me! From start to finish, the wealth of knowledge and insight that I have gained over the past few months has helped me so much. Learning everything from plotting a timeline, to how to charge for my services to branding and PR. 

Lovegevity provides you with all the tools you need to be successful and to run your own business. I would recommend everyone take this course!

Project 1

Posted By Tori Wardell, Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Hello! My name is Tori Wardell! I have just recently graduated college with my bachelor's in General studies. While in college I was in a sorority and loved planning all of the events for the chapter. After realizing my love for planning I realized I wanted to help plan people's special days and make them everything they've dreamed of!

My inspiration for this first project were my friend's September wedding. We live in Texas so September is really the tail end of summer. The night was cool which made for a comfortable ceremony. I wanted to plan a classic elegant wedding. Something that I feel never goes out of style! The black and white really coordinate well together making for a timeless event!

CWEP Project 1: Plan a Social Event or Wedding

Posted By Rachel L. Umile, Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Hello, my name is Rachel and I am from Langhorne Pennsylvania. During my junior year of college I had decided that what I wanted to do with my life was help create and plan the one day that is unforgettable to many people, their wedding day. Last month I graduated from college and I decided that I wanted to become a certified wedding planner before I started looking for a job because I felt that if my résumé said that I was a certified wedding planner, I would be more likely to find a job that I would enjoy. This course has taught me so much already and I am enjoying every minute of it.

The inspiration for my Project 1 were my best friend and her fiancé. They have been together for years now and just got engaged. They plan to have a long engagement since Keegan is currently still in school but they asked me to plan their wedding with their specific budget to see if it was actually possible. They gave me a $20,000 budget, a request for a traditional and romantic wedding, and colors they plan to use for their wedding. I had a lot of fun creating this project because I feel as if I am really helping them plan their wedding. They have already told me that when the time comes that not only will I be in the wedding but I will be planning it too. This project definitely helped me with understand wedding planning and I believe I will benefit a lot from this project.

Project 1: Plan a Social Event

Posted By Colleen M. ViaFriend (McCasey), Tuesday, June 20, 2017
Updated: Thursday, June 22, 2017

My name is Colleen and I currently reside in McKinney, TX.  My husband and I are transplants from Colorado to Texas 11 years ago for our jobs.  We both originate from the East Coast, where we met 30 years ago in Providence, Rhode Island.  We are empty nesters, but have less spare time it seems then when our two children were at home.  I have worked in the corporate world for the past 27+ years in the Operations, Training/HR, and Development departments for one of world’s largest QSR (Quick Service Restaurant) Companies.  In my spare time I volunteer for a local North Texas animal rescue, and have 3 rescued furry children that we call “the boys”.

My inspiration for Project 1: “Planning a Social Event” was my Son and his Fiancé late summer wedding.  Their wedding is planned for later this summer over the weekend of August 12th, outside of Durango, CO.  Planning began last year prior to the fall holidays, but many of the details are just coming to life.  Over the Mother’s Day weekend, our families joined together in Breckenridge CO with the bride and groom.  We finalized details and created a timeline for tasks that needed to still be completed.    

My presentation is a combination of the details provided for the actual upcoming wedding and additional ideas that will enhance the guest experience during the event.  This has been a great experience and I look forward to sharing my creation and continuing to learn more from my peers and networks during this course.

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Ashley D Sneed, Tuesday, June 20, 2017
Updated: Tuesday, June 20, 2017

My name is Ashley Sneed, I'm originally from Dallas, TX. I have two beautiful daughters who are my motivation in life. We just moved from New York about 3 months ago and while in Texas I've decided to further my education. I have spent the last 6 years in the corporate world as an EA and though I have enjoyed it, I just feel it is time to start my own business.

I have always been the "go to" person with friends and family that need an event planned. I enjoy all the in's and out's when it comes to event planning. I'm finding this course to be a little challenging but I know how valuable this training will be when I've completed the program.

The couple I chose is my best friend Michelle and her soon to be husband Snider. They want a formal and elegant traditional wedding. Christian ceremony that will be romantic and emotional but the reception to be more like a party. Primary colors will be mint green and gold. White cala lilies will be the primary flower and touches of gold will support them in the floral arrangements. The couples ceremony will start at five o'clock pm at Noah's Event Venue in Las Colinas.

Rustic-vintage, meets Glittering KC City Chic

Posted By Caroline I. Drumm, Tuesday, June 20, 2017
Updated: Tuesday, June 20, 2017

I’m Caroline Drumm and I’m from a little bit of everywhere. I grew up in the Dallas area, but I have spent the past seven years in Nebraska getting my marketing degree from the University of Nebraska and then working on the “party solution team” at Oriental Trading Company as an assistant brand merchant. I moved back to Dallas at the end of last July where I’m currently working as an Acquisition Marketing Coordinator downtown. I would like to work for either a company doing event planning or even a small event planning company. Moving into this type of field will be a great way to tie up many of my other professional and extra circular skills and talents.

I’m really enjoying this course and it’s really exciting get to be creative again. I will have to admit that this project has taken me a lot of time. When I was working on this I would just disappear into my own event planning world for hours at a time.

I’ve created this project as a way to help my good friend who is just starting her wedding planning. I’m going to be a bridesmaid in this wedding and the bride told me she wanted some ideas and how to go through this process. The bride and groom live and Kansas City and have lots of guest coming in from out of town and this couple obsessed with the venue they’ve picked. The best ways I can think of to describe their wedding is rustic-vintage, meets glittering KC city chic

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Sherry L. Potter, Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Hello, My name is Sherry Potter and I live in Carrollton, Texas. My husband, Wilson, and I have been married 22 years and have 3 teenage boys. We are planning for the empty nest phase in life. Wilson and I plan on going into business together because our skill sets balance each other perfectly.I am currently a financial manager and do event planning for our church. Wilson is a facilities manager and great with people. Our goal is to make Wedding Planning a full time job within 5 years so we can both quit our other jobs.

This class has been helping me understand the details behind the logistics involved in planning a wedding. Knowing the traditions and proper etiquette is very helpful as well. I look forward to continuing to build my information data base.

My project is for Matt & Stacy's May 2018 wedding. This sweet couple met at a lemonade stand and so incorporating lemons and yellow throughout the wedding is important to them. They want a semi-formal, classy wedding with a fun, relaxed reception. They venue location has a vintage church for the wedding and a rustic barn for the reception. They will have bottles of lemonade for everyone to make their toast at the reception. Stacy loves succulents so you will see those scattered throughout the decor. Matt & Stacy will leave in style in a yellow Ford Tudor.

My name is Rosalyn, I'm from the San Francisco bay area.  I moved to Texas about 20 years ago and while in Texas I've completed my education.  I have a Bachelors degree in Business Administration Management.  I enjoy putting together celebratory events for family and friends.  I'm finding this course a little challenging but know how value this training will be when I've completed the program.

My mood board is of a mature couple.  Their ages are 50 something, both have professional careers.  Both have been married in the past.  He has no living parents, one adult son and grandchildren.  She has her mother, two adult children and two grandchildren.

This couple wants a semi formal, elegant and conservative wedding.  This outside ceremony will have the bride, groom, maid of honor, best man and officiant in front of a man-made pool of water situated so perfectly between two pillars they will exchange their vows at the Dallas Arboretum on an beautiful June morning.

Updated: Sunday, June 18, 2017

 

Hello everyone!

 

My name is Shoreh and I am originally from Iran and have lived in the U.S since 1979 and made Plano Texas home in 1991. I am a medical technologist and my speciality is in Microbiology, I am currently working full time as a Supervisor of Microbiology Lab in Dallas. In this role, I have learned to manage a team, work with others and delegate tasks. I would like to take these skills to the next level as a professional planner and design and manage a client's wedding or event. 

 

Weddings are significant events in people's lives and couples expect a well-organized and memorable wedding. I have experience in helping Iranian brides with their "sofreh aghd" which is a traditional Iranian wedding spread. I have also been involved in arranging large parties and events such as Iranian New Years programming. I also have my Floral Design certification and love making floral arrangements for friends, family and events.

 

My project today shows a modern Iranian-American wedding that includes unique elements of Iranian traditions with a elegant touch of modern chic.

This project has helped me a lot in realizing how much hard work and effort is required in order to have an organized and enjoyable event.

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Mandi Hamel, Sunday, June 18, 2017

 

 

Hello! 

 

My name is Mandi Hamel! I began my love for the wedding industry at fifteen when i first worked for a bridal salon and fell in love with the moment i saw a bride say " I Do"... to the dress! I am very fortunate that my love for the wedding industry brought me to the lovely Outer Banks of North Carolina where my passion continually grows. I am now a Full time party rental coordinator. On my "off time" I have assisted planners and florists at the event site where i continually learn and will one day master not only the beautiful side but the logistics of rain plans, destination couples, and the hard questions such as where guests park when an event home has parking for 12 but the guest list exceeds 120. 

I have always been an entrepreneur at heart and I cant wait to run my business with the passion and heart that i have for people in general and truly being able to help in more ways than one. 

I have created a beach wedding for you. My sister is in love and its only right that she has a wedding at the location they found one another. At the beach! With colors of light pink, and hues of mint and greens. Simple, fresh, vibrant, and fun! ]

Enjoy!

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Azka Safdar, Sunday, June 18, 2017

Hello Everyone,

My name is Azka Safdar. I am originally from Pakistan, living in the Dallas area for the past 30 years so it feels like home. I have two beautiful daughters and a wonderful husband. I work full-time as a Medical Assistant at a doctor's office. Two years ago my daughter got married and my best friend and I planned her entire wedding. We loved every minute of it and decided we wanted to do it as a career. We have been friends for 25 years and are business partners now.

We wanted to get certified so we joined this course through Collin College. I am learning a lot from this course and this project has taught me all the various components that require detailed research when planning an event.

I am planning a South Asian wedding using bright and vibrant colors for the reception and attire. The reception will be complemented with hot and spicy Indian food and upbeat music.
