Did you already visited Wave Hill ? Two weeks ago, I had the opportunity to organize and to attend at a wedding in Wave Hill, in the Bronx, for my internship. I never went in the Bronx before but I really liked it. Wave Hill is a really nice and quite place at one hour’s drive from grand central, in Manhattan. You get the impression of escaping from New York and its agitation. This place is famous because this is a public garden along the Hudson River, with a cultural center and flower gardens. It is possible to privatize this place for a wedding or a conference.
For my first wedding as an intern at Loli Events Agency, I participated in the organization of Teddy and Joe’s wedding. It was a really beautiful wedding. The bride was magnificent with a pretty simple dress and a rock touch with a jacket in silver leather that suited her very well. It was very satisfying to participate in the most beautiful day of their lives.
I started my day by taking care of gifts for the guests with the other girls of the team. then we supervised the setting up of the reception hall for dinner and we welcomed the bride, her mother and the bridesmaids for their preparation before the ceremony. When the room was ready, with the flowers, the decoration, the easels, the light and the sound, we went to the place of the ceremony to check that everything was ready. The ceremony took place outside with a magnificent view of the Hudson River. the ceremony was very stirring.
After the ceremony, the guests were able to enjoy a cocktail on the terrace, while we went to install the cake and welcomed the musicians for the evening. The bride and the groom came to see us to thank us for our involvement in their wedding. The guests were also very friendly, I was able to discuss with many people about my experience as an international student in New York, and about France, and how it could be difficult to leave my country for the United States.
After that, the dinner started with many speeches from relatives and friends of the bride and groom. We stayed there for dinner and checked that everything was going well.
I left around 11 pm with one of my colleagues. I really enjoyed working on this wedding. It was a very nice experience for me. I want to work in the field of the event management, and this internship is very interesting. I do not feel like working, so much time passes by and the atmosphere is pleasant. I worked on another wedding last weekend at the New York University Club and it was also really great.
