Assisting to run a venue that predominately hosts weddings. I help set up, tear down, prepare for wedding, help set up with everything day of. I also help run meetings with events up to a year out. I believe running a venue is a cumulation of a lot of small details that all come together that produce amazing events, and I like to think I have a large part in making that happen.


Being able to single handedly run the venue the day of with little to no help with my supervisors since they were also apart of the wedding.

What advice would you give?

If you feel like the little things aren't important and that you need to be doing bigger things to feel accomplished- don't. Everyone needs to do the little things so that the big event runs smoothly.
