Aisle Planner

Today I thought I would talk some more about Aisle Planner, the amazing online event planning platform that streamlines the process from start to finish! I used Aisle Planner for the planning of my first styled shoot, and I have also become a master at the program through organizing and setting up accounts for Moxie Events and Event Crush, two wedding and event planning companies in Eugene, Oregon.

Successfully Working With Vendors

Over the past year, I have had the privilege to assist several weddings and photoshoots and plan different styled shoots with a countless number of vendors in Eugene and Los Angeles.

Having a certain level of professionalism and making sure vendors know that your job as a planner is to support them throughout the event is of utmost importance.

Community Over Competition

As I begin blogging about what I have learned about wedding planning over the past two years, I want to start by saying how my experience at LVL Academy not only taught me everything I need to know within three days, but it also inspired me to reach for my dreams and taught me how to do so in the most elegant way possible.

Grateful

With this blog, I will be sharing a lot about what I have learned over the last two years working with other planners, vendors and clients. Before I do so, I want to recognize the planners who have been my mentors over the past year and have taught me all that I know.

Firstly, Deanna Nash from Deanna Nash Events has been a spectacular role model and has taught me a lot about the planning process, coordinating and the industry. I am so grateful to be learning from a wedding planning expert like her.
