~~All About Ivy~~
My name is Ivy and my story is not the typical, "I planned my own wedding so I decided to become a wedding planner." My story is made for Reality Television. Make sure you ask me how I became a wedding planner when we meet. The Silk Veil has been in business for over 12 years and we have planned or coordinated over 500 weddings and events.
Before becoming a wedding planner, I spent 15 years in Corporate America. Those jobs included working in claims, accounting, inventory and purchasing. I received my First Certification, Certified Bridal Consultant (PF/ABC), in 2008. My Second Certification is a Certified Wedding Planner (AA-WP which is American Academy of Wedding Professionals) which I received the following year. I am trained to teach the Wedding Planning Course written by AA-WP (American Academy of Wedding Professionals) In 2010, I formed the first North Carolina Chapter of the National Organization AAWP and I am their first NC President. I am RASP certified, ServSafe Certified, and a prior member of AA-WP (American Academy of Wedding Professionals) and ABC (Association of Bridal Consultants) The Silk Veil also produces Bridal Shows via Charlotte Area Bridal shows. Ivy also has an AA in Business Administration/ Hospitality and Travel and I am also a Travel Advisor.
