Certification Celebration

Posted By JoDee Krotz, Tuesday, April 23, 2019
Hello once more! Our CWEP class celebrated our final class and certifications last night! What a night! The CWEP class from The University of Texas at Arlington, #BCE, planned a sweet finale' to honor our walk together for the past 12 weeks. We especially wanted to reflect what we've gleaned from our wonderful instructor, Cheryl Allgood. We 100% wanted Cheryl to see the influence she made on each of us as we celebrated our event with an event! With less than a week to plan our party, we each worked hard to pull a plan together. For our final eve together, we shared a wonderful family style, self prepared, multi-course meal. We made place cards, menus, chose a color theme; and everyone took part. We took a lot of photos, invited vendors who shared their trade, and reminisced from tears to laughter. As a parting memento, we gifted one anther with little items for each classmate to begin their emergency kits... and to remember one another by as we begin our walks. We love how we were able to crescendo the class in such a celebratory manner, reflective of a certified planner. It was an honor to grow together!

CWEP Project 2

Posted By JoDee Krotz, Saturday, April 6, 2019

I’m JoDee Krotz and my husband and I live in both Texas (and Iowa). Texas is our transition state as we move toward creating a seasonal wedding and events venue in Montrose, Iowa, named: 1884 On The Bluff.

The project I’m presenting is a working draft of what will ultimately forward to a web professional and become our venue website. The photos were taken of the venue property and of models we hired for a stylized photo shoot, with a professional local photographer, at a party we had last October themed “Celebrate Before We Renovate.” As we’ve not yet renovated, we’ve a vast amount of mood boards to create. However, for this project, I will create a mood board from the images we have from the venue.

We hold a passion, high standards and have a knack for attention to detail as we work toward managing this large transition, renovation, and building a company from two different states. I’ve worked harder than I ever thought I would in the CWEP course and enjoyed every aspect of this certification process more than I thought I would as well. I know the knowledge gained will alleviate areas of stress and surprise as we move forward to create memorable weddings. One of our customer service goals will be to completely transparent and therefore trustworthy, avoiding any unnecessary stress and disappointments. We want to satisfy our customer’s vision of their big day to the fullest!
