I am passionate about teaching other people how we do what we do. I’ll never forget how lost I felt when I first started this company. Sometimes I would go to floral shops on Fridays to see if they were working on a wedding, hoping to get a look at their designs and how they prepared for a wedding. Looking back, those women probably thought it was so weird I would come by every week pretending to be shopping for flowers.
This week for Wedding Wednesday, we are showing two parts: I’ve collaged images from a real wedding in addition to including some behind the scenes images in our studio during preparation for the wedding. Hopefully this glimpse into studio production will help to show some of you how we work, how we build our centerpieces and how we set up the studio for efficiency. Pictures are worth more than a thousand words, and many of the studio images will teach you how we operate behind the scenes.
Every day I receive e-mails from people who have questions and want to learn about the industry. I love that people feel comfortable to ask questions. I try to respond to as many people as I can, but unfortunately there are more questions than I have time to answer. I know not everyone has the resources to attend the spring workshops that we offer, I realized this as I read the stories that many of you sent me when you applied for scholarships. Everyone should be able to learn their passion and follow their dreams. I have a strong desire to make learning accessible. That is why I am participating in The Wedding Planners’ Gathering.
The Wedding Planners’ Gathering is an online learning opportunity that makes learning affordable. 10 instructors have collaborated to each make a 1 hour video covering a multitude of topics. My video is teaching how we create our lush and organic centerpieces in a compote bowl, much like the centerpieces I created for this wedding. If you are interested in learning from 10 talented instructors, and see the video of how I arrange centerpieces definitely make sure to stop by and check out The Wedding Planners’ Gathering. There is currently an early bird discount for the next couple of days, and the online course is being offered at only $249! We are hoping this makes learning affordable, and the workshop experience for accessible for people.
Please feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment if you have any questions at all! Looking forward to teaching some of you through this online course!!
