Ready, Set and GO!!!

My internship has finally started!!!

The past weekend, I went to a wedding rehearsal with Gianna on Saturday.
I assisted her receive favors, seating cards, etc. and watched her give the rehearsal.

Sunday was the wedding.
The ceremony and reception were held at Bel Air Bay Club.
It's a gooorgeous private club overlooking the ocean in Malibu.

There were two other (and young) interns besides me.

Our jobs were:
Setting up the ceremony and reception area,
helping with bride and groom if they need anything,
and assisting guests to seat at their table, etc.

It's been a while since I was on the "field."
But I felt that I was natural at this.
It could be the experiences of working at an event company in Tokyo for a year
or know-hows from production coordinating days, or it's because this is what I really want to do.

Of course I have A LOT to learn.
I don't know anything about how to throw wedding ceremonies for each different religion.
Who walks down the aile first? Which side does the bride stand?
I also have no connection with vendors.


If I really set my mind into it, I think my dream WILL really come true one day.

When I was watching the newly-wed's first dance, I got goosebumps, thinking,

"One day, THIS will be my job."

I could've gone home at any time, but since this was my first event,
I stayed until the end, although it was on Sunday, and I'm usually bed by 10:30.
When I finally got home, it was close to midnight.

My legs were killing me and I was beyond exhausted.
But I haven't felt this ALIVE for a long long time.
