i am a semi-retired wedding + event planner.
Planning events was my first foray into the importance of community + the lasting impact a well-thought-out gathering can have on a group of people.
I specialized in logistically challenging events (think — a wedding in an airplane hanger, transforming a parking garage, transporting 200 guests hours away) and it’s very rare I take on the full planning of these types of events anymore.
My other specialty –
Events that make people feel something.
Events should have an overarching goal. I prefer for that goal to be an emotional one.
People take action based on their emotions.
Do you want to feel the power of a group?
