NIAGARA COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGE
I have studied for the Hospitality program at Niagara County Community College for my Associates degree. This degree provides knowledge in several fields of the hospitality industry, including hotel and restaurant operations, the tourism industry, and well defined knowledge of event planning and management.
I have been awarded a certificate in wedding day timeline management awarded to me by Timeline Genius. This course taught me the necessary skills to plan a wedding timeline that allows enough time for not only the couple, but also the vendors to have a perfectly paced day. There are a lot of events happening on a wedding day, and no one wants to feel so rushed that they miss something!
I am an ordained minister by the American Marriage Ministers. This ordainment provides valuable knowledge on the different types of ceremonies, both religious and non denominational, as well as information on the legal filing of the marriage license.
EVENT PLANNING EXPERIENCE
I started my event planning career with the best hands on experience I could gain by being in two of my closest friends' weddings. I not only helped plan the weddings, but also planned the bachelorette parties and bridal showers. One of the brides was so impressed with my work, she asked me to plan her baby shower too! After discovering my passion for wedding and event planning I opened Marvelous Occasions in December of 2020. In my first year I have flawlessly executed 5 weddings, ranging from a simple wedding in a backyard all the way up to a grandeurs wedding with a ceremony and reception at two high end venues.
