Then imagine on top of that that you’re managing  another 25 weddings, all in different stages of preparation, that are coming up over the next year.

As such, we’re looking for someone who is an aggressive self-starter and is able to take on the work in a fast-paced environment while effectively working with our team.

  1. Event Management -- You will be responsible for managing multiple events simultaneously. In addition to running dozens of events per year, we also attend about 15 trade shows annually, run various webinars, and regularly coordinate small lunch events.
