shadow me at a real wedding experience
There is nothing quite as incredible as being on site, hands-on, in the action of a wedding experience! Shadow me during one of this season's incredible weddings we've been hard at work on! This is an awesome opportunity that requires an interview process prior to selection.
The day before the wedding one is packed full of final preparation. Learn from me how I prepare my team, myself and our clients for the most incredible day of their lives. Some of the elements you will be shadowing may include:
Logistical preparation - review layout schematics, design plans, production and wedding party timelines, review vendor details and logistics, touch base with any vendors as needed
Review wedding day emergency kit, ensure it's stocked and prepared
Attend team meeting
Load truck with team for decor elements - learn how we pack, why we pack the way we do and how we plan ahead for efficient take down
Begin any early installations
Review end of wedding take down details
The Wedding Day! It's go time! As the Principal Designer and Planner, it's my job to be at the helm of the ship. Regardless of how many hundreds of hours we put into planning, it's inevitable that things will pop up! Learn from me how I handle stressful, time sensitive and urgent situations.
