Design Intern, Lovewell Celebration Design

Wedding planning was something I always wanted to try my hand at. It may have been because my favorite genre of movie is romantic comedy, but planning also seemed like a natural fit with PR. Special events themselves are important within PR, but the skills associated with guest management, vendor coordination, and attention-to-detail are equally as important. Lovewell Design is a small-but-growing firm based in Syracuse that specializes in Central New York weddings.

I assisted with wedding coordination for five weddings. This included vendor load-in the day before, site design and set-up, wedding party and guest logistics during the actual event, and vendor load-out.

During my semester at Lovewell, we also switched the website platform to WordPress, and I set up the portfolio page, as well as troubleshot issues that arose.

My semester culminated with an inspiration bridal photoshoot. I researched photographers and hair and makeup, and coordinated the model and other vendors. The theme was Autumn Opulence, really embracing a darker, richer wedding. All our vendors were located in or around Auburn, a small town near the Finger Lakes region of Central New York. Below are some of my behind-the-scenes shots, but you can view the entire shoot at The Lovewell Post.
