Weekly Wrap Up: Internship Week 5

This past week has been full of new things! Last Friday we made it through the 105-degree weather, and made sure Cassie + Matt weren’t sweating over anything! It was a beautiful and entertaining wedding at the Mint Museum Uptown. The gray and yellow was gorgeous. The details were impeccable from a lemonade bar at the ceremony, a thumbprint tree, family photos, and so much more. I just love seeing all of the details pulled together. Their wedding was filled with a wonderful crowd, which was full of energy. It was definitely a night to remember.

We also attended many meetings these past two weeks. I met photographers, such as Critsey Rowe and Project Life Photography, the fabulous Sara Shelor at Party Reflections, and a few possible new brides! Vendor meetings are always interesting because you get to see how each of them goes about business differently. I have learned a lot more from vendors than I ever thought I would.

One event that is coming up is the opening party for Lily Greenthumb’s new studio! This party has been really great to be apart of the planning process because it’s all of the vendors working together and helping each other out. It is going to be a great night to be working, networking and enjoying ourselves all at the same time!

Katrina has recently booked a lot of weddings for the 2013-year. They are all great women and they are all going to have beautiful weddings! I wish I were going to be in Charlotte during their wedding season to see all of these weddings! I can’t wait for pictures!!

And at the end of this week we had an “Inspiration Day”. We spent the day coming up with inspiration boards for all of the new clients! I spent many hours on the internet looking up bouquets, table settings and bridesmaid’s dresses. Who said Pinterest couldn’t be used for work? I wish I would still be working for Katrina when these weddings come around! They are going to be stunning!!

We are more than half way through summer, and working with Katrina has been so much fun. I have learned so much and I am sad that it is going to end! Not only has she taught me so much about the industry, but she has also become a great friend and mentor! She is so fun to be around and always gives me great advice! I was worried about having an internship and babysitting all the time this summer, but Katrina has made work something fun and I am going to be so sad when it’s over! So here’s to my last month in Charlotte– let’s hope it’s a great one!
