Since my last blog post in May, I have been through a lot of changes with my business. In addition to a substantial increase in inquiries and contract bookings, and after receiving two requests for an internship this summer, I decided to bring on an intern to be a part of the Get-Christine Team! She is a little younger than I anticipated, but I love her dedication and passion in pursuing her dreams at an early age. Lauren found me by doing a simple google search for Raleigh Wedding Coordinator.
I am excited to have Lauren on my team, and also grateful for the young, hip, influence that I believe she will bring to my blog posts, social media accounts, and events we run! And so without further ado, I bring you Lauren’s first ever post on the Get-Christine Event Planning Blog:
Hi! My name is Lauren, and I am so excited to be interning with Christine! I am a rising senior in high school. My love of parties started at a young age when my family would throw huge birthday parties in August for my dad and brother’s birthdays. We would rent bounce houses, have catered food, and a large cake that my mom would make. Living in Zebulon at the time, surrounded by fields and trees, made these large parties possible. I love large family gatherings, whether they are for weddings, reunions, birthdays or anniversaries.
As the years have gone by, my desire to be creative has grown. I have been in art class for six years and in yearbook for one year. This past year I had the opportunity to plan, decorate, and attend my schools Junior/Senior banquet (which is basically prom). Throughout the yearlong planning of this event, I realized that I really have a knack for planning, organizing, coordinating, and executing large events, and decided to pursue this further.
My other interests include Pinterest, baking, chalkboard art, and going to the beach. I absolutely love big, blue hydrangeas, so don’t be surprised if I’m slightly biased towards them.
Immediately upon meeting Lauren I realized that she and I are kindred spirits! We both share a love of parties, organization, planning, baking and being artsy. She is also smart and friendly and I think an excellent addition to the Get-Christine team!! Keep your eyes peeled for some trendy and fun blog posts written by Lauren this Summer.
