Happy Fall, everyone! I’m very excited to tell you that I’m the new intern at Simply Love Studio! My name is Danielle Chanda and I just started my senior year at the University of Kentucky. Weddings and people have always been a passion of mine so I decided to major in Integrated Strategic Communication to try and pursue a career in the wedding industry after graduation! When I started my freshman year at UK I knew I wanted to work with people in some way, so I began as an elementary education major where I quickly realized I needed something new. The most captivating thing that drew me to the wedding business was that it’s something new each and every day.
While in college I have had so many great opportunities to explore different aspects of the wedding industry in Lexington. My junior year I started an internship at Twirl Boutique where I was learning to work one-on-one with brides to help them find their dream wedding gown! One year later and I’m still a happy Twirl Girl. There is just something about the small business charm that makes my job so special. As I’ve learned, there are never bad days in the bridal industry. There are definitely stressful times, but I feel so incredibly blessed to be able to be a part of such a special time in our bride’s lives. (Also, you get the adding perk of trying on pretty dresses!)
I’m so excited to get the chance to work with Ms. Sarah Burton at Simply Love Studio and learn much more about the wedding industry in my favorite city of Lexington. On my first week here, I can already tell it’s going to be a great semester. Stay tuned for more updates about our adventures here at the studio!
