Have you been dreaming of learning the in’s and out’s of the wedding planning industry? This is your chance to gain hands on experience in the world of destination wedding planning and design. Our Rachael Ellen 2023 Internship application is officially open through February 14th 2023. Click on this link to fill out the internship application form. The application will close on February 13th at 11:59 PM. Applicants will be notified of their status within the month. If you are chosen for a follow up interview, you will be notified.
Our internship will be a floral and event focused internship. Interns will participate in our execution process and learn hands on what it takes to produce our events and execute them seamlessly. After leaning more about our interns, select interns may be asked to take on advanced roles to assist with design, planning, social media, and various industry relevant tasks. This additional work load will not require more than 5 hours of additional work per week on top of the weekend wedding schedule.
The ideal applicant is hard working, eager to learn, punctual, responsible, fashionable, artistic, flexible, laid back, hands on, and equally as excited about the grunt work as they are the glamour.
Do I have to travel to be onsite for events? As many of our events are destination, we evaluate the team we need on site on a case by case basis. If you are chosen to be part of our destination team, we will cover all of your travel expenses.
Do I have to be based in Utah, NYC, or France to intern for you? While we would prefer to have you in those locations, we will evaluate applicants from other locations on a case by case basis.
Is the internship paid? Our interns complete 1 wedding season before potentially moving into a paid “freelance” position. We evaluate all of our interns performance at the end of the season and determine if they are a good fit for our team moving forward.
Is the schedule flexible? Yes and no. Interns are expected to be available for a minimum of 90% of our weddings and events. We can make exceptions for some situations, but generally, you need to keep open availability on the weekends from April through October. Your workflow during the week is flexible. You can work when and how you want to, so long as you are prompt in responding to emails and get your projects finished by the deadlines.
Do your interns ever go on to work for you? YES! Many of our core team members started out as interns. We love getting to know you, seeing how you fit in with our team, and watching you learn and progress into an asset for our team.
