This is a very exciting week for us, as The Wedding University is taking place this Sunday, January 31, 2010 at the Four Seasons Silicon Valley. Brides and grooms, we still have a few more spaces left, so you can still register to join us on Sunday!
As we print the final outlines for each class, we are once again reminded of how lucky we are to have such passionate, knowledgeable and seasoned event professionals on our faculty this year to teach the ins and outs of wedding planning.
The topics that will be taught at The Wedding University will include Design & Decor, Planning & Logistics, Photography & Videography, Beauty & Attire. This is a one-of-a kind bridal event that will allow brides and grooms to gain insight into the different components of wedding planning. Couples that attended our inaugural event last year were surprised and delighted at the experience, and we loved the blog post that was from one of our attendees!
Check out the videos, put together by the fabulous Andrew Hsu of Studio MSV, as a preview to what you will be learning at The Wedding University.
I want to take this time to acknowledge the dynamic duo on our Administrative Team for The Wedding University. Without them, this event would not be happening so smoothly!
Janece Shellooe is the owner and lead planner of Every Elegant Detail. She began her career in the wedding industry by managing events for a high-end Bay Area catering company. Soon after, Janece was mentored by another Bay Area wedding coordinator and began planning a few weddings on her own. Friends and family urged her to start her own business, and in 2007 Every Elegant Detail was born! Since then, Janece has had incredible opportunities to work at some of the most luxurious locations with some of the Bay Area’s most talented vendors.
Janece was an integral part of The Wedding University last year, assisting us with registration, logistics, and staffing. She did such a fantastic job that we asked her to take on an even bigger role in the planning for this year's event, as our Administrative Lead. She has been working closely with all of our professors, and the Four Seasons Silicon Valley, to ensure that no stones are left unturned!
Amanda Chan is the Production Lead for my wedding planning company, Jubilee Lau Events. She has been working with me for a year and a half now. Quite honestly, I don't remember what it was like without her because she does so much for me, and for our clients! On wedding days, she practically runs the entire event for me, allowing me to focus on the bride, and on the 'big picture' at all times. Her passion and enthusiasm for the wedding industry is contagious, so ofcourse I had to bring her in on the planning of The Wedding University! She has been the detail-oriented force for us 'behind the scenes', creating meticulous floorplans, timelines, and all sorts of spreadsheets to keep us on track. Amanda is a bride-to-be herself, so whenever we need a 'bride's perspective', she's a valuable resource for us!
If you are engaged, and looking for valuable tips on how to plan your wedding, there is still time to register for The Wedding University. We also have prizes valued at over $6000 for several lucky attendees, including a 3 night honeymoon stay at a tropical Four Seasons resort! Since we are keeping our event small and intimate at a cap of 150 attendees, each person will have a very good chance of winning!
