I chose to become a professional event planner because it aligned with my purpose. I’ve always been passionate about organization, planning, project management, and celebrations! My mom is my inspiration, as she always planned the best family functions during my childhood. I’m now following in her footsteps, creating special occasions that bring people together.
QC Event School is unique because of its diverse programming and legitimate certifications. I love everything that I am learning! Prior to attending QC, I worked as a Bridal Assistant and Party Planner for many years. I always felt like there was more that I needed to know. I needed a strong educational background to build off of, and I didn’t want to attend another 4-year institution. So, I enrolled in QC’s Event and Wedding Planning Course in August of 2019. By November, I was starting my very own business! I’m proud that through Black Haven Events,I can now help represent the underrepresented love.
Without QC’s guidance, I would not be as educated as I am in the industry. Through my training, I was able to determine what kind of planner I wanted to be. QC gives you all of the guidance and information you need. You’re provided with the flexibility to become the kind of planner YOU want to be!
 
I couldn’t be happier with how this school gives back to its students.

I chose to become a professional planner almost ten years ago. I have always been obsessed with all things Disney, which led to my belief in fairy tales and ‘happily ever afters’. After working at Disneyland, I grew a passion for making dreams come true. I loved the idea of being able to help make someone’s special day a stress-free and memorable experience. That’s when I decided I wanted to pursue a career in wedding planning!
I think the biggest thing that makes QC Event School unique is how involved the tutors are. They go through each of your assignments and give you feedback that not only details where all of your strengths are, but where you need to improve as well. I love that because getting this new, insightful perspective truly helps you to understand the course material and your growth along the way.
 
My training with QC has benefited many different aspects of my career and business. For starters, it’s helped bring out my creativity for event design.It also taught me how to price out my packages appropriately, and get one step closer to becoming a professional planner!

Graduate of Event and Wedding Planning
& Destination Wedding Planning

I had been looking for a career change for quite a while, but I didn’t know what I wanted to do. In 2019, I got married to the love of my life and I spent an entire year planning our wedding. I soon realized that wedding planning was something I was really good at and genuinely enjoyed. I decided to take the plunge and turn event planning into my career.
QC Event School is unique because it is 100% online. Since I was still working while taking my classes, I didn’t have the time to go back to school full-time. Being able to complete the assignments at your own pace, and from the comfort of your own home, is something I couldn’t find anywhere else. Another great thing about QC is how detailed and personalized the instructor feedback is. I learned so much thanks to my tutor!
In so many ways, QC Event School has truly prepared me to be successful in my career. Each assignment that I completed in my course was very similar to a real-world scenario. It got me thinking about different angles and approaches to take in the event planning business. The textbooks were easy to follow and contained a lot of important information that I still refer to on a daily basis.
 
Overall, QC Event School has allowed me to feel comfortable
and confident in my new career!

Being a wedding and event planner was a childhood dream of mine, ever since I watched the movie, The Wedding Planner! While I was enrolled in a Hospitality & Travel program, I did my externship at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. To assist me in finding which career path I wanted to follow, the museum allowed me to spend time with each department. When I spent time with the Events department, I knew then and there that professional planning was the career path I wanted to follow!
What stands out most to me about QC Event School is the array of event and wedding planning courses that are offered. I was also blown away by the flexibility that comes with online learning! Going forward, I intend to graduate from my courses, obtain my certifications, and continue growing my event and wedding planning company. In the future, I’d also like to mentor other aspiring event professionals.
 
Thanks to my training with QC, I know that I’ll be successful in achieving these goals!

In all honesty, event planning sort of picked me. It sparked my interest when I began planning my own wedding back in 2017. Weddings and events are extremely fascinating to plan! No two are alike and every client is completely different than the last. I wanted a career that was fast-paced, a little unpredictable, and extremely fulfilling. I’ve worked in flower boutiques, men and women’s formal wear stores, and even banks and wealth management facilities. I took what I learned from each place, and took the necessary steps to become a professional event planner.
QC Event School is unique in many ways! What stood out the most to me was the mentorship; the solid advice and encouragement received from the course tutors was fantastic. Also, having the ability to work at my own pace and in the comfort of my own home was a welcomed bonus. QC also offers a Virtual Classroom where students and alumni can gather online to discuss courses, real-life scenarios, ask questions, and network with fellow, like-minded individuals. I’ve also found that the information provided on QC’s blog, Pointers for Planners, has proven quite helpful for my business too!
QC Event School has contributed to my career success in numerous ways. For example, my assignments included real-life case studies. By studying these scenarios, I felt more prepared when establishing my business and planning/coordinating events. Having a professional designation in both event and wedding planning, as well as event decor, has contributed to my career success as well. I’m now able to offer a “one-stop-shop” package to all of my current and prospective clients!

Planning has always had a special place in my soul. Through the years, and as I grew my experience, I realized that corporate life was just not for me. What has always sparked my interest and filled me with the utmost passion is the ability to establish magnetic connections. I believe it’s these connections that drive the true beauty of life’s celebrations – which is now the core of my brand. There’s just nothing more beautiful than making each unique story come to life in the most magnificent way.
QC Event School allows students to reach the certification of their dreams without the pressure of tight deadlines. I’m able to fit my courses into my schedule and work on my own time, without feeling like I missed the mark. The materials are clear and concise, the unit structure is easy to follow, and the support is exceptional. QC allows you to grow individually, as well as collaborate with others. The 3 things that I feel make QC Event School the most unique are its flexibility, customer service, and community.
QC Event School has been a source of light for me. With my busy schedule, I couldn’t commit to a strict sit-down class in which an assignment was due each week. That said, QC has also given me the opportunity to get my event certification on my own time. I’m able to apply what I’m learning throughout the program every day in my professional career as a planner!
