ACPWC Certified Wedding Planners in Ceremony Magazine’s GREAT List
Professional Wedding Consultant, Miranda Meisenbach from M.I.R.A. Events and Design, was recently featured in Ceremony Magazine’s GREAT list, along with two more of ACPWC’s Wedding Planners, Crystal Lequang CWC, and Jelena Crone PWC. Congratulations Miranda!
Why did you choose a wedding planning career?
I started getting into events when I was just 16 years old. At one of my first jobs, I bounced back and forth to different departments in the office assisting on various projects. My secret favorite was the marketing department, where we would plan everything from large open houses to awards dinners. From there, my passion for organizing events lead me to pursue a career in the industry.
I spent the next couple of years learning as much as I could about event planning and management. After some time and some major life changes, I decided to start my own business. Unfortunately, my timing was terrible. It was 2008, and the economy was on a devastating downward spiral. I took a job at a local bridal salon to make ends meet, and it ended up being the best thing that ever happened to me.
During my time at the bridal store, I fell in love. I fell in love with lace, tulle, drapery, crystal, china and flowers. I fell in love with exotic venues, romantic love stories and the sweet, sweet moment of “I do”.
From there, I decided to complete a certification course in wedding planning. I found my match through the Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants. I was drawn to their high standards and difficult training course, and desired to be known as one of the best.
I completed the training course and my first wedding in 2008 and have worked on weddings and events ever since.
In 2011, I received my Professional Wedding Consultant (PWC) title through the ACPWC, and am close to achieving my Certified Wedding Consultant (CWC) title. In addition, I proudly serve as the Event Designer for the Silicon Valley NACE chapter and have been doing so for going on 3 years.
