She Said Yes Weddings is excited to announce our new internship program. Designed to equip aspiring wedding planners with practical work experience, Yes Interns will get one-on-one training with a professional planner. She Said Yes Interns will be interviewed and held to the She Said Yes standard of planning. Each intern will be given a 3 to 6 month internship during the height of wedding season (typically from June-November). Karie, the owner of She Said Yes Weddings not only wants each Yes Intern to experience real-life wedding planning, each intern will get life coaching as well! Are you ready to say YES to a fun, engaging and life-changing internship?
PLEASE NOTE: OUR 2021 INTERNSHIP IS GOING VIRTUAL! KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR APPLICATIONS!
Our YES Intern Program is not like other intern programs. Each intern will experience a "real wedding" the She Said Yes Intern program is designed to teach up-and-coming wedding professionals. How it all works:
1. Classroom: Interns will meet two times a month in a classroom type setting. Each Intern will be provided a program book, as part of the program, that will interns will work and learn out from. It was written by Karie, the owner of She Said Yes Weddings!
2. YES Projects: Each Intern will be assigned a project due each month of the program. The projects are designed to give real-life experiences.
3. Weddings: Each Intern is required to complete up to four hours of observation time at a real wedding
Past Interns + Success Stories
My favorite part of the internship was the She Said Yes projects! Karie was very flexible with our schedules, which I greatly appreciated. I loved when we met for our one-on-one because it helped me take a step back and really evaluate the projects and class material and get answers to the questions and concerns I had. I loved how you started out with branding and the steps within the curriculum. Karie showed how to build networks within the wedding industry and with clients and how to maintain great relationships within the community.
Where is she now: Shannon was hired by a local high-end venue as a Venue Coordinator.
Karie was so helpful and informative walking us through all the steps of planning a wedding, and managing the big day. I loved being able to have hands-on experience through the internship projects so I could try out my skills in a situation with less pressure than a real wedding. I now have the information and resources to start my own path in the industry, and I’m so excited and thankful!
Where is she now: Jenna took the leap and started her own wedding planning company. She is focusing on small, intimate weddings and elopements!
I don't have enough words to describe how thankful I am for Karie and the She Said Yes Internship! Not only did the class provide valuable materials and resources to become a wedding planner, I also made amazing friends and great connections with others in the industry. Karie was a fantastic instructor, even when new challenges came our way with shutdowns and restrictions. She gave me the strength and confidence to open my own business, and I couldn't have done it if not for She Said Yes. I would highly recommend the internship to anyone wanting to learn more the wedding industry.
Where is she now: MacKenna has jumped right in and started her own wedding planning company. She partnered with another wedding professional and they are doing great!
