Weekly Wrap Up: Internship Week 1

Intern Eden here! As you can imagine, being a wedding planner you partake in lots of random errands and meetings. This week I got a taste of quite a few things that Katrina does! I started off my first day with 3 meetings; all very different. The first one was a meeting with her good friend and hair/makeup artist, Kymm with Who’s The Fairest and Christina with Jacuzzo Designs! It was a delicious breakfast accompanied by great conversation. Look forward to an awesome photo shoot later this summer! After our first meeting, Katrina and I headed over to the Mint Museum for a final meeting before Katie + Chris’ wedding. This meeting was one of the things I love most about planning events; seeing everything come together (pun intended)! Katie picked out the finishing touches, and her wedding will be before we know it! I can’t wait, it is going to be so beautiful. Last but not least on my first day we had a meeting over the phone with Melanie. Katrina and I are travelling to the Outer Banks on Monday to go see her venue! She is getting married at the Sanderling in Duck, N.C. in June.

The rest of our week consisted of various activities. We put a good amount of time into making table runners for Katie + Chris’ wedding this week. I never knew I could get so excited about a table runner looking nice! Not to mention, I am obsessed with the fabric. We ran a couple errands, including going to IKEA in search of picture frames. My first trip there ever… I will definitely be heading back to do some cheap college shopping. We also stopped by Polka Dot Bake Shop and met with Kelley, the head baker, to clear up some details about a cupcake display! If you’ve never been by Polka Dot, you are really missing out! It’s such a cute place not to mention the delicious desserts.

Behind all of this, Katrina was kept busy with 10 million other things. Good thing she can multi-task. Overall, this was a great first week with Katrina and I am so excited for what this summer has to come!
