Why Weddings?

Before I dive into to all of the crazy wedding posts and trend talk, I figured I would share a little bit about what lead me to this obsession.

I have always loved the idea of being an event planner, but it wasn’t until this spring that I decided to start pursuing it. In February, the student-run public relations and advertising agency at OU put on a small networking conference with professionals from several big-name agencies in the industry. Our faculty advisor tapped me to help coordinate scheduling and other details.

The conference was a big hit and I had such a good time in my role that I wanted to explore how I could do more. I knew a family friend nearby had her own event planning company, so I reached out to her for some guidance as to where to go next. To my amazement, she offered to let me assist her with a wedding she was organizing. The rest is essentially history.

After that first wedding, I was completely taken with the world of event planning. I loved seeing how all the little details could come together to make such an overall spectacular event. I offered to help her with any other weddings she had that spring, then I reached out and tried to connect with wedding planners in Dallas while I was there for the summer. My experience with her helped me get my current internship (which I am LOVING!). Right now I am just trying to take it all in and learn as much as I can, and hopefully I will be prepared for my own opportunities down the road!

Speaking my current internship, check out my Meet the Intern post if you want to learn a few more fun facts about me and what makes me (and my obsession) tick!


Finally, just to give you a little idea about my experiences…
