I was responsible for...
Setting up and tearing down for all events from weddings, businesses and special events. Emailing clients and potential clients. Giving tours to potential clients selling the venue to them and why they should hold their event here at NOAHS. Be there the day of every event to make sure everything runs smoothly and there are no problems. It is a very fast pace job different daily task every day never the same.

I will never forget...
Being apart of everyones special day, their wedding day! Getting to work with all the brides and vendors that come in to NOAHS is the best and getting to see it all come together from the beginning to the end. Also getting to try all the wedding food and desserts :]

Advice for others...
If you dont want a boring desk job and dont mind weird hours and working weekends then this kind of job is for you! Dont settle for anything if you like weddings go for it, I told my self that I didnt want a normal job with normal hours, I enjoy my job and enjoy going to work everyday and look forward to it!
