I’ve been designing and planning weddings for almost 13 years. Like a lot of planners and many of you, it started as a hobby just helping organize and produce something special for family, a friend or a friend’s friend. My business was run “on the side” of my full-time (60-100+ hour) media/production job. I knew event planning was what I wanted and was even meant to do.
For the last several years, I’ve spent part of my time training others in the art of wedding planning, through the Wedding Consultant Certification course offered at Cal Poly Pomona and various training workshops and showcases. Far beyond the pretty flowers and dresses found on Pinterest lies a meticulously well-oiled machine complete with vendor qualifications, timelines, deadlines, budgets and a lot of hard work. We become the client’s friend, accountant, production manager, therapist, and confidant. I take such pride in the list of successful planners and business owners supported by these trainings and so grateful to take part in the building of their dreams as well.
July 10, 2013, the Wedding Consultant Certification (495.00) course will begin at Cal Poly Pomona. Over the ten Wednesday nights, you will learn the nitty-gritty of wedding planning that will undoubtedly give you a suitable foundation to not only excel in your business, but excel in making your client’s dreams come true. You will receive your certification, which is required in many of the more reputable wedding venues throughout Southern California. Sign up now…space is (very) limited.
July 27, 2013, the Day of Wedding Workshop (175.00) will be offered at the LOFT for those of you who are looking to get the tools needed to run the actual wedding day and the weeks leading up to it. Learning how to set things in order so that the big day goes off without a hitch. This workshop is open to Wedding Planners, DIY Brides (or Bridesmaids), Photographers/DJs (looking to expand their business) and more. A lot of DIY Brides decide not to hire a professional planner and have a friend or family member help run the big day…this is the perfect opportunity to make sure they have a bit of training.
