Welcome to the KBWEvents team!
I am excited to welcome our new summer intern Patricia to the Kayla Belle Weddings & Events team! She is a graduate of LWPI and an absolute sweetheart! For the next few weeks, Patricia will be working with me where she will learn the ropes of blog post, do client research projects, assist at styled shoots and of course wedding planning. If you see her attending meetings or events make sure and say hello! Read on to learn a little bit about Patricia…..
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a 35 year old mother of one. My son, my pride and joy, Jalen is 10 years old. Born and raised in Brooklyn, I am the youngest of three girls born to Haitian parents. I am a Libra and true to form I am a very caring, loving, and outgoing person. I have been working in the healthcare industry for over 10 years and have been planning events for fun and as a hobby since high school. I recently became certified as a wedding and event planner, to make my hobby a career, because I enjoy it so much and love every minute of planning events.
Why did you want to have an internship with a wedding planning company?
Even though I have planned events in the past, I became more knowledgeable about planning weddings and events through my coursework and believed an internship would allow me the opportunity to learn even more and gain hands on experience studying under a professional in the industry.
What do you hope you will learn during this internship?
I will like to learn a few things such as how a wedding and event planner runs a business. How they build client and vendor relationships and plan multiple events over the course of a year. And most importantly, as much as I love planning events as a hobby, can a wedding and event planner become my full time career.
What’s your favorite sweet treat?
My favorite sweet treat are Italian tri-color cookies aka Rainbow cookies. They are my weakness and I can eat an entire platter.
What three items would you have if you were stranded on a dessert island?
The three items I would have on a desert island would be my cell phone, ebook, and lip gloss.
What’s your favorite moment during a wedding?
My favorite moment during a wedding is the first dance.
What inspires you?
Music, great conversation, nature, and happiness.
Describe yourself in three adjectives:
Trustworthy, Determined, Confident.
Here's to all the summer weddings that will have Patricia on board to support them on their day.
