The hilarious, teachable story from my first ever wedding client
A wedding planner's first wedding is always an unforgettable experience- for both the perfect and imperfect moments. My first paying clients were Sarah and Ian, my own wedding caterers, who trusted their day to me. It was one of the biggest professional learning experiences of my life. 10 years later, Sarah joins me on the podcast to chat all about how we came to work together, what she remembers from the big day and how a planner ensured her wedding experience was stress-free. I recount all my top learnings and how these lessons affect me as an event professional to this day. Tune in to learn some of the top day-of coordination wedding tips that I still impart on my team, a decade later. What was your first wedding like? Do you still think about those clients and everything you learned?
