Wedding and Event Planning Certification Course
Posted By Jessica Serrano, Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Many people go on about life without any sense of direction, I'm glad to say I found a career that fits
the shoes I have been looking for and with LWPI I have been able to learn every step of the way. The
CWEP course was fantastic; it covered all the bases in creating a wedding/event, from start to finish
and more. I would like to thank my instructor Marling in doing a great job in teaching the ropes that go
in building an event and an event business. I recommend this course 100% to anyone thinking of
pursuing a certification in wedding and event planning. Thank you LWPI for creating a hands-on
course and putting together an awesome guide.
What An Experience...

With that being said, there is no way to fully describe the impact that this class has had on my
outlook of the wedding and event planning industry. This class was an eye opener and a
detailed behind the scenes look at what it really takes to pull events of this scope together. I
appreciated what I learned and more so loved the hands on experience gained in the course. The
class fieldtrips were some of the best parts of the class however the friendships established and the
teacher conern is priceless. Having taken this class at a very difficult family time in my life, the care
and support shown by Ms. Obando and my classmates will never be forgotten. Again, all I can say is
that I am glad that I took the steps to start and complete the course.

At the beginning of this Summer I decided to take the first initial steps toward pursuing my
dream of becoming a wedding planner and I'm so happy that I'm gaining my certification
through LWPI. I've had lots of fun expressing my creativity with the assignments and learned a
lot about the business aspect of the industry. This has certainly been an informative and
enjoyable experience so I would like to say "thank you" to Ms.Obando for all that you've done.
Thanks to you and LWPI, I feel I am ready and so excited for the next chapter in my life!

It has been a wonderful experience attending the various wedding planning events throughout this
course. Utilizing the knowledge learned in class, I was better able to understand how projects/tasks
should be done when organizing an event. Every detail ranging from the hair and make-up of the bride
to the appropriate theme and placement of objects when setting up a table, play an important role to the overall outcome of the event. The course displayed the importance of being organized, professional,
and dedicated when tasked with planning an event. Thanks to the education received from this course, I
aspire to continue perfecting my skills and pursuing my passion for years to come!

am so glad that i decided to take this course because i have learn so much from inside to outside the classroom. it has been an amazing experience every step of the way. my instructor has taught me so much about the wedding industry for example on how to deal with the bride on her special day,business plans on to starting your own business and so much more. i also learn that is takes a lot of dedication and have to be very passionate and love what you are doing. This course has also taught me that you need to have patience and that everything is not perfect. another thing i learn is that you do learn something NEW everyday and i cant wait to do the real thing.

I am a former student of Lovegevity’s Wedding Planning Institute (LWPI) 2011. I was very excited
about attending this course at Miami Dade College. This course taught me how to organize weddings,
plan event timelines, budgets, enhance the ambiance of event(s), minimize issues and etc. My
experience was wonderful and educational. I am glad I chose to attend this course, because my
instructor brought the best out of me! I recommend this course to those who wish to begin their careers
as wedding and event planners.

As I look back at this experience, I can honestly that I'm grateful for all the knowledge I've gained.
Mrs. Obando gave us the opportunity to have hands on experiences, meet vendors and she encouraged
us to be creative. Thank You!
This has been such a great experience and I know the possibilities are endless!

Having taken, and completed the wedding planning class, I can truly say that it has been a great
pleasure to have had the opportunity to have met all the wonderful ladies that shared class with me. I
enrolled in this course with a goal to learn and get into the wedding and event planning industry, and
along the way met some beautiful people, and for that I am grateful. The class was alot of fun, and I
particularly enjoyed that Ms. Obando, took a step further, and took us outside the classroom to meet
with different vendors, and gave us the opportunity to participate in some events.
Furthermore, to all the ladies that shared class with me, I would like to wish you all the best for what
lies ahead, it was truly a pleasure getting to meet all of you, and to Ms. Obando, I would like to express
my gratitude for allowing us to participate in some of your events, and for the small goodies you had
for all of us at Cleavelander, and the last day of class. It is much appreciated. Thank you!
What an Experience!!!!=)

What an Experience!!!!
I had a pendent project in my mind that I always loved. I liked a lot to organized and prepared family
and friend’s parties. All the time I was involved to decorate events, so I decided to start in this amazing
Wedding/Event Planner Course this year! During these three months I learned every detail to organize
and coordinate a Wedding Event, a Birthday Party, an Engagement, a Bachelor, different events that
come up to to my mind utilizing the knowledge that I acquired in class. This exceeded my expectations
as student, and now I understand much better the importance of being organized, dedicated, and
professional when projects and actions should be done when organizing the event. I’m so happy with
all the material that I learned and I loved the experience gained in this remarkable course. Thank you
very much to Marling Obando to gave me the opportunity to have a lot of good quality experiences!!!
I attached one of my favorite wedding assignment, it was an Indian Wedding, really fascinating!
