What is The Wedding University?

The inaugural Wedding University took place on Sunday, February 8, 2009. We were filled to capacity with enthusiastic couples eager to learn the many aspects of wedding planning. From 11am-5pm, our students rotated between classes to learn about wedding design, wedding logistics, photography, beauty, and other important topics. In addition, they sampled amazing food from a sushi bar to a prime rib station to an elaborate dessert buffet--all from the creative culinary team at the Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley. An extraordinary decor room that featured 4 very distinct styles was the perfect inspiration for couples to brainstorm on their own wedding style! There were absolutely no 'selling' going on at our event, as compared to the conventional wedding fairs. It was truly one of a kind, classy, and fun event. At the end of the day, one lucky couple won the grand prize--a 3 night stay at one of 3 Four Seasons Resort, including Lanai and Bora Bora.

Faculty Orientation Day!

December 8th was the 2 month mark before our inaugural Wedding University and it was our first official Faculty Orientation! What a big day for us indeed! The orientation began bright and early at the Four Seasons Silicon Valley, where I started out by introducing the goals and visions behind WU. Kelly from the Four Seasons followed with a discussion of the marketing efforts, and Jean gave all the participants a rundown of the course schedule. We then broke into our individual presentation groups and had the opportunity to brainstorm on our topics. After 3 productive hours together the meeting concluded and we enjoyed a nice luncheon together at Quattro's.

We are all so excited about this event!!
