It’s been another busy summer for us and our interns have been fast at work! We’re so excited to introduce our fabulous summer interns to our community and our Couture Family.

 MEET DENISE

Hey guys! I’m Denise. I just graduated from San Diego State University a month ago and am taking a year off before heading off to grad school. Although I didn’t pursue event planning in my studies, I’ve always had a niche for it. In high school, I was the friend to go to when it came time to organize pre-homecoming or pre-prom plans. Finding the right venue to take photos, looking for the best place to eat beforehand, mapping out an itinerary to make my friends’ lives easier– I had so much fun doing it all! In college, I fostered these abilities by joining the SDSU PINK Campus Street team. The PINK Campus Street Team is responsible for endorsing the VSPINK brand—all while having fun too! I helped organize campus events such as coordinating a viewing for the annual VSFashion Show and I’ve even made snapchat filters for these campus affairs!

I’m an avid pinterest-er, and am always finding a DIY project to keep me busy. I’m all about crafts, fashion, and people with creative minds. More than anything I love large gatherings. There’s a sort of spark to the environment when all the people you love are in the same room at the same time. I think that’s what drew me to weddings. I’m soo excited to be interning with Couture Events this summer and am eager to learn all there is about event planning!

MEET CIERRA

My name is Cierra Serrano, I’m from a small town in San Diego county called Valley Center. I graduated high school in 2014, I played sports a majority of my life from softball, lacrosse, and cheerleading. I have one semester left at Sierra Nevada College, North Lake Tahoe in Incline Village, NV. I was a part of the women’s lacrosse team for two years, and always had the goal of being a business major and getting involved with some type of event planning company. I had my first experience with Couture Events when I was 16, San Diego Coordinator, Karina, planned my Sweet 16, which was Alice and Wonderland themed. I fell in love with the process that I went through to have my party be such a success. I’ve had a great experience with Couture Events as a client, and I cannot wait to gain the experience working as a part of the Couture team!

Fun Facts About Cierra

Favorite Starbucks Drink: It’s a tie between an Iced Vanilla Latte or a Mango Black Tea Lemonade.

Favorite Designer: Still figuring out my absolute favorite!

Favorite Place in the World: I love to travel – I just got back from a trip to South Africa where I helped renovate a few schools, tutor, and take classes as well, with a layover in Barcelona, Spain on my way home. I have a plan on visiting Vietnam next summer, and hopefully Venice, Italy. Eventually I want to travel across Europe.
