Project 1 - Rustic Romance Wedding

Posted By Ashley Bald, Friday, December 14, 2018

Hello Everyone!

 

 My name is Ashley Bald and I was born and raised in Philadelphia but have now lived in Rhode Island for about two years. I moved here to attend the Rhode Island School of Design as a graphic design major, and plan on offering my design services alongside my planning services. I have been playing music as a drummer and creating art for many years now, but also have always had a passion for the planning of weddings and events. My goals are to start up my own planning business in early 2019 and work throughout the year to make it successful. I want to use my associate's in graphic design degree and this certificate to make a better life for my and my 6 year old son.  

I have no prior experience in planning but I do have plenty of design experience that helped me not only have an eye for color and design of a wedding, but also of the website I created. I'm presenting in this blog post project one, and the theme I created for this wedding is Rustic Romance. I'm excited to see what everyone else has come up with as well!

Enjoy!

CWEP Project 1

Posted By Jannelle Gooding-Gibbs, Tuesday, August 7, 2018
Updated: Tuesday, August 7, 2018

My name is Jannelle Gooding-Gibbs and I am 27 years old. I am a proud mother of an entertaining, cunning 7 year old boy and a newly married gal. I grew up in a very cultural-driven West Indian household and spent my youth back and forth to a little tropical island called Grenada. My journey started when I got engaged in December of 2016, in the same tropical island of Grenada. I was, well still am, working a full time job as an office manager at a Ford dealership, when I was struck with the crazy idea to plan my whole wedding on my own. So for 15 months, I have worked tirelessly to plan, create and draw out this very peculiar perfect special event. I saw my vision and plans literally come to fruition on Monday, May 28th 2018. This was the beginning, the birth, when the light bulb went off to Jae Renee’ Event & Design.

            Knowledge is power and I believe educating yourself on your passion is always a plus. In this field being hands-on and having the freedom to create our vision with guidelines, keeps us in check. I want to help execute the vision from the tiniest detail to the big picture. There’s nothing like seeing every single thought you’ve ever envisioned, come to life. That’s my mission!

            Raj & Kesha met, 6 years ago on a flight to visit family, for the holidays, back in their home country Trinidad & Tobago. They’ve been inseparable ever since! Two years after their first meeting Raj popped the question. Kesha decided to spend the rest of her life with him at a celebrated with beautiful ceremony with close family and friends. Now they’re expecting a little bun and they couldn’t be more excited. They decided when celebrating their baby, they wanted to keep their Indian/Hindu roots alive and respect their parents in the process. Using bright bold traditional colors like gold, magenta, purples and reds are what we focused on.

Updated: Sunday, May 20, 2018

Hello everyone! I'm Christi from Va.

I have an existing event planning business and decided I am ready to take it to the next level and need this class to do so.  My favorite part of planning is the design and decor aspect. I love anything that allows me to express myself creatively and I am hoping to learn alot from this class.  My favorite planner is Preston Bailey and my hopes are to one day meet him or better yet work alongside of him.

Blog Contribution 18.6 Assignment

Posted By Carmen Rosales, Monday, April 30, 2018

Hello everyone! My name is Carmen Rosales, I am from LA California. I have been working in the legal field for over 10 years and although I don't hate my job, I also don't love it.  I have always felt that I have so much creativity and I'm the first to jump in when it comes to planing any event or party.  I was so happy to find this course, and nowI am almost finished and hope to be a certified wedding and event planner, very shortly! 

 

Through this course, I learned about the strong work ethic needed to be an event planner. I gained so much insight from the material and lectures provided by the instructors. The biggest takeaway for me was realizing what a huge network the wedding and event planning industry is, Im excited to jump in and start my own company. 

 

My hope is to help couples realize the wedding/event of their dreams and to ease the stress of having to worry about throwing an epic party. My other passion in life is traveling (currently uploading from FIJI!!) So, I'd also like to explore joining my two passions and dabble into destination weddings. 

 

Dream Team Productions is a firm believer in giving back to the communities in which it operates, and to this end supports a number of local charities, I'd like to help couples who are less fortunate as well as provide charity work , perhaps in helping plan events at local schools and/or church and community centers.

CWEP - Project 2

Posted By Abigail Vasquez Bruton (Vasquez), Monday, January 8, 2018
Updated: Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Signature Events by Abby LLC

Website: www.signatureeventsbyabby.com

Instagram: @SignatureEventsbyAbby
Facebook: @SignatureEventsbyAbbyLLC

We are a boutique planning, management and staffing company based out of Florida.  We want to expand our business to New York, and will travel to most destinations. We want to be the company that brings about change in delivering live and virtual experiences to our clients using event specific technology and apps. Bringing a 3-D virtual picture of event spaces and floor plans before the day of the event.  Using apps to create timelines and send reminders to vendors. Using project management technology to inform vendors of updates in real time.  Engaging in video conferencing and live chat.

We promise to deliver this mission by providing tools, information and engaging resources. Simply, and Effectively providing a unique experience that our clients will remember for years to come. Always a Signature Event Experience.

What I have enjoyed learning from taking this course and completing Project 2, is that it is of vital importance to know every detail starting with design, marketing tools and concepts, understand your competition, offer certain planning tools to bride to get her motivated, understand the details and roles for each person in the bridal party and remember to cover your business expenses and account for any liability issues that may arise.  Planning an event can be so much fun, but most people don’t realize all the details that go into planning a spectacular event that clients will remember for a lifetime. 

Prospective Clients: Casey Noto & Patrick Donahue
Mother of the Bride: Joan Noto
Wedding Date: November 10, 2018
Religious ceremony: St. John Catholic Church in Boca Raton, Florida.
Venue for Reception: Waterstone Resort and Marina Boca Raton, Curio Collection by Hilton

Initial Consult: Zoom Video Conference meeting on January 12, 2018.  I will email a response which will include Canvas boards giving prospective client ideas of services, design aspects and venue that was originally talked about at the initial conversation at a bridal showcase where I met prospective client and her mother on January 7, 2018.

I have attached Canvas boards to show clients a few pictures of venue they are considering and to include information regarding my services.  I have also included a simple budget analysis for their review.  A list of one of the teams that work with me for weddings within a budget of $45,000. I have also attached a video that gives prospective clients an insight about my company, my team, services offered and about my experience as a planner.  My goal is help each client save time, save money and make the planning process as stress free as possible. 

Cheers,

Abby Bruton

CWEP Project 1-Wedding-Hicks

Posted By Teresa Hicks, Friday, September 29, 2017

Greetings Colleagues!

My name is Teresa W. Hicks.A few of the hats I wear are wife, mother of two, teacher, minister and grant writer. My husband and I are currently experiencing empty nesting syndrome in Mechanicsville, Virginia. Several years ago I experienced one of the most devastating losses ever: the death of my father. My sister, brother, mother and I planned the most beautiful celebration ever.It was gorgeous!! The only problem was that the guest of honor was not able to see it. Thus began our quest to celebrate life.

This is my first professional course in Event Planning.My goals for this class are to get my certification in event planning, to network with like minded professionals, and to move to a new level of business. 

My first project is a Canva board for a wedding. Faith, family, classy, tradition, daintiness  and Jazz were important to the couple. The bride specified that the wedding be held in a church, that the traditional Methodist ceremony be used, and no silk flowers. This event could also be listed as a signature event. This was evident through the emphasis on faith, the swing dancing and jazz music,personalized  boxed chocolates, and in lieu of gifts donations made to hurricane relief efforts and homeless programs.

Project #2- The Event Diva

Posted By Karr Stewart, Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Hello!

My name is Karr Stewart and I live in Irving, Texas. I will be starting my event planning business in June and is super excited about my new chapter in life! I'm married with a 13 year old son and a 20 year old daughter who's getting married in October. I have been doing events basically at every job I held and really enjoyed it. I mostly have conducted corporate events but in the last 3+ years picked up weddings and love it! I really enjoy helping people with happiness and going in the event planning business fit what I am trying to achieve. I really enjoy planning outdoor country, rustic, vintage, shabby type weddings. I think natural outdoor sceneries are soooo pretty, elegant and require less décor. I plan on opening my own event center something different like a barn, farmhouse or colonial style. Just want to crate a different space that people searching for a event center would be able to create their own space with in my space. I am looking forward to diving into this industry!

My Experience With LWPI

Posted By Alyssa Murphy, Tuesday, January 24, 2017
I didn't know how much work this course would be when I signed up, but I am thankful that it was this much work because I now have a well-rounded wedding planning education under my belt. I definitely plan to continue my education in wedding planning. I really enjoyed the first project the most because I really enjoy the design aspect of wedding planning. There are so many options when helping to design a bride's wedding and that is a big part of what I love about it! I have wanted to be a wedding planner for years and now I will be getting my certification soon. It feels wonderful to have accomplished this goal. Now I am starting up my own small wedding and event planning business and I have the necessary insight through LWPI to make it happen.

Project #3: Grand Opening

Posted By Keitra L. Brooks (Murphy), Wednesday, April 13, 2016

What a project!!!!  I have thoroughly enjoyed this course!!! Please check out my project!  I'd love to get feedback!!!!!  Much love and Good Luck to each and every one of you in your future endeavors!

 

Manifested Visions Events & Design, LLC will host a grand opening on Saturday, August 13, 2016.  The event will be held at the brand new Manifested Visions Event Center in North Little Rock, AR.  The event will black, white and gold color scheme.  The event will begin promptly at  starts at 1:00 pm and go on until 4:00pm. The guests will enter the venue on a red carpet fully equipped with photographers (paparazzi) who will capture each moment and also mingle through the guests on the inside.  The guests will then be greeted me and my staff and asked to complete a client profile card that will enter them into the drawing of door prizes. There will also be two buffets set up in the foyer presented by Kona D’s Catering, LLC of Dallas, TX.  They will have sampling plates of some of her favorite dishes and desserts.

Guests will then be able to walk through each of the eight rooms that will be decorated in different themes to show the many possibilities of our space.  Each room will also have local vendors set up to discuss with potential clients how their visions can be made real at Manifested Visions.  Each vendor has been asked to offer some type of prize and/or giveaway for the drawing. Manifested Visions will offer free day of coordination, deposit waiver, 20% of venue rental and we will give away one free full service wedding planning package as the ultimate prize.  This will be a fun and interactive experience for staff and guests.  I am so excited to be able to offer this venue to our city.    Our guests will leave with a small tub of popcorn, a thank you bag with gold Hersheys kisses on the inside and information on our business offerings and services. 

Opening an event venue has been a long-time dream of mine and it will finally come true!  This is something that the Central Arkansas area truly needs.  Our motto is “Let us help make your visions reality!” and that is exactly what we aim to do with each client.  We choose to only work with the best of the best but are not afraid to check out up and coming vendors to give them the opportunity to prove they are just that. 

As a business, Manifested Visions will always offer time and money to worthy causes.  We will partner with North Little Rock High School to offer internships to students who are participating in the Charter Conversion program.  We will also sponsor charitable organizations by making contributions to those organizations that share the same mission we have.

Hello everyone,

First off, I would like to thank Carol, our instructor, for all the amazing people she has introduced us to and for passing all of her knowledge on to us. I have truly enjoyed the class and the new friends I have created. I can’t wait until I put everything I have learned into practice. 

I'm a huge fan of photography so, I have attached a few of my fun "trash the dress" pictures. All photographs taken by Fizelwink Photography by Ryan Thomas Young.

Knowledge is Power

Posted By Gabriela Schreiber, Sunday, May 29, 2011
The CWEP course has been quite the experience for me. As I near the end of the course and look back at how much I’ve learned, I’m feeling confident and well prepared for my career as a wedding and event planner and business owner.

As a wedding and event planning professional, one of the most important things I learned is managing the six areas of the event experience (A6 event production). They say the little details make a BIG difference! As a business owner, one of the most important things I’ve learned is about the many possible ways to market and expand my business. Building and managing a successful presence in the industry is key!

Overall, this course has inspired me to be a more creative and "outside the box” thinker. Thanks to LWPI for making such a comprehensive course available to those of us with dreams of becoming professional wedding and events planners AND business owners. Best of luck to everyone taking the course!

Stepping out into the event scene

Posted By Madena R. Hilkey (Hilkey), Saturday, February 19, 2011
  I have always had a passion for events and designing in many aspects; clothes, home interior, events and weddings.  I took this course on a whim of wanting to do something that is going to "make me happy."  My now fiance (we just got engaged YAY), kept pushing me to do something that "I want to do."  He has always been supportive, so naturally when I randomly said, "I want to be an event planner!" His response was, let's get you certified.  I did some research on how to be certified and found out true and true that Lovegevity's Wedding Planning Institute (LWPI) was the way to go. 
  
  I started the course within two months, and loved every minute I spent in class and on our 'field trips.'  Michelle Bromley, the course instructor at ACC was such a big help.  She generally cared about all of our interests and was encouraging to each individual in the area she thought we would make good contribution to in the industry.  I actually miss meeting with our class and sharing ideas with all of my classmates.  

  I have been equipped with all of the information needed to start my event planning business, and am eagerly awaiting for the right moment to make my mark on the diverse Austin event industry scene.  Although I feel  ready to start my business with great success, I am still pursuing every angle of the steps needed to do so.  I want everything to be as flawless and seamless as possible. 
  Moving to a city where you know no one, and making a decision to open a business where networking is everything, is quite the hill to climb right away.  My background and experience in Las Vegas will surely prove to be a big help during this time.  I love to network and meet new people.  Getting my name out there and causing a 'hype' for my business to start is currently a work in progress.  

  Oh and might I remind you... I've got a wedding of my own to plan! I'll be my own 'bride-zilla' and go OCD on myself! =) I did make some really great friends in class while taking this course, so maybe a 'Day Of' planner will be just the service I'll need. =) 

Take care all & live out your dreams! 
xO,
Madena Rose

Wagner College Instructor Highlighted on Staten Island Blog

Posted By Abby Langston, Tuesday, January 18, 2011
Congrats to Melissa Mortimer, the owner of Lavish Occasions and an LWPI instructor! She recently graduated five new certified wedding and event planners, and she was profiled on the blog SILive.com. According to the blog:

Ms. Mortimer finished the course by presenting a site visit of one of her favorite venues, Nicotra’s Ballroom at the Hilton. "This part of the course is extremely important and the students really see the inner workings of a facility that can handle any and every event. Nicotra’s Ballroom is an excellent choice because the staff is extremely dedicated and goes over and beyond what is the norm at other locations,” she said.

Be on the lookout for more information about Mortimer and her class at Wagner College, which is in the New York metropolitan area. Best wishes to her new grads!

Interested in signing up for a class at Wagner College? Register today.

Guest Post from LWPI Graduate Shafonne Myers

Posted By Abby Langston, Monday, January 3, 2011
Shafonne MyersAs wedding and event planners it is our duty to give the utmost attention and care to our clients to ensure that their wedding or event is flawless and impeccable. But what most planners don’t think about is our duty to give back to our communities.

As we embark on the upcoming year, I encourage everyone to take a step in the philanthropic direction. We as planners should add philanthropy to our quarterly or annual marketing calendars. Trust me, I know it is hard to do, especially with the cost of running your business and then trying to gain business. What planners don’t understand, however, is that giving back to our communities is a great way to help the community as well as help your business. There are tons of ways for your business to give. Here are just a few:

A. Sponsor free wedding-planning classes
Engaged couples are always looking for ways to learn how to plan their own wedding to save money. This is a great group to help because you can help them plan their wedding at no cost and offer discounts if they decide to use your day-of coordination services.

B. Sponsor an engaged couple and help them plan their wedding for free
Sponsoring an engaged couple is a great way to give back to the community as well as give your business some exposure. This is a great opportunity for your business to partner with fellow wedding-industry professionals, possibly with the hope of them working with you in the future, or just to build your vendor database. Often times these types of events can generate huge media options. So if you decide to do this make sure and get the word out to the media ASAP. You never know, once they get wind of it you could gain some great sponsors.

C. Offer your services to nonprofit organizations
This is my favorite one because it offers the opportunity to meet people outside of the wedding industry. Donating your time and services to a nonprofit organization will help spread the word about your business, all the while helping a great cause and lending a hand. I volunteer as the marketing director for an organization that helps Multiple Sclerosis patients, and it’s great.

Do you have any ideas on how certified wedding and event planners can give back to the community? Good luck and Happy New Year!

Be sure to visit Shafonne’s website, follow her on Twitter, and read more about her in this LWPI Instructor Spotlight. Lovegevity is excited to welcome Shafonne to the blog! Check here for more exciting news about her partnership with LWPI.
