Today we wanted to introduce you to two new faces you will see in our office this summer! We have Jessica and Kathleen interning, and we couldn’t be happier to have them. Our internship program offers an opportunity for college students to gain exposure to event planning and design. They work directly under Jenna and Leslie and gain all kinds of experience from office duties to vendor communication to graphic design to working a wedding weekend. It has been so helpful to have them this summer so far, as it has been so busy! We wanted to share more about the two sweet girls we have this summer, so we sat down and asked them a few questions. See some of their answers below and be sure to say hello when you see them in our office!

Favorite part about a wedding day? My favorite part about a wedding day is watching everything that we have been working on for so long fall into place perfectly for the bride and groom on their big day. Planning a wedding takes so much hard work that is done behind the scenes and even though I am only an intern, it is so rewarding to watch all of our hard work pay off and come together like we hoped.
Favorite wedding trend? My favorite wedding trend for right now would have to be the first look with the bridesmaids. Although the wedding day is mostly meant for the bride and the groom, I think it is important to fill your special day with meaningful moments with the people who have been by your side through it all and not to mention, who have helped you dream of this day since you were a little girl.
Dream vacation? My dream vacation would definitely be to Greece. I would love to go sailing in their clear blue water as well as eat all of their tasty foods.
Favorite thing about your college experience so far? My favorite thing about my college experience so far is the independence that I have developed through school, Greek life and friendships. I definitely feel more in control of my life and what each day consists of, which I love.
3 things you can’t live without? The three F’s – Friends, Family and Food
Favorite food/Netflix show/candy? At the moment, my favorite food would have to be flaming hot Cheetos. My favorite television show of all time is One Tree Hill. My favorite candy is airhead extremes.
Favorite thing you have done so far at Jenna Laine Weddings? My favorite thing I have done at JLW would be assembling wedding invitations. I love looking at all of the different designs, logos and fonts and how they correlate together in a way that represents both the bride and the groom.

Favorite part about a wedding day? My favorite part about wedding days is getting to see each bride and groom’s personality show throughout the details of their wedding. From the moment she walks down the aisle to their first dance song every detail shows something about what makes this day special to them and I love getting to be a part of that.
Favorite wedding trend? My favorite wedding trend would have to be the signature drink. A signature drink is another way to incorporate personal details into a wedding day. Guests love it and the bride and groom get to sip on their favorite cocktail all night- what could be better?
Dream vacation? My dream vacation would be spending two weeks in Hawaii and boating around to each island.
Favorite thing about your college experience so far? My favorite thing about college so far has been the friendships I’ve made through my sorority. I have so many friends from different states and I’ve I loved getting to see their cities as well as show them mine.
