If You’re a Wedding Planner or Designer... || Since I launched the #ayementorsessions last week I’ve already had the privilege of mentoring three talented planners who are proving to be such incredible assets to their clients’ vendor teams and are going above and beyond for their couples. As much as it’s a service for these wonderful vendors, it’s bringing me so much joy as well!
When I was nineteen and starting out in the wedding world I worked my way up from the very, very bottom. An intern jumping at any opportunity that arose, I worked my way through every facet of event planning and design to eventually become an event assistant, then event producer and then owner, planner and designer of my own company. And when I tell you it wasn’t completely linear and it definitely wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies, I mean it (and that’s a story to save for another day). But along the way I had the opportunity to be mentored by incredible colleagues and planner friends who taught me some of their best practices, helped prevent me from making mistakes they had made along the way, taught me the value of understanding the industry in every facet and gave me confidence by reminding me of the value, knowledge and expertise I bring to milestones. Years later, hundreds of weddings and celebrations planned and going into my fifth year of owning my business, I’m so grateful for these professionals for their support along the way. The conversations and sessions I had with them were invaluable — I STILL have quotes from my sessions with them that I have lived by time and time again, which have guided me through every season.
For all my planner and designer friends out there looking for a mentorship for their growing businesses, I would love to chat and do have a few spots open for May and June for sessions! Simply reach out with a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you the full AYE Mentorship Collection outlining all of the details and how we can work together to take your weddings, celebrations and businesses to the next level.
