Infinite Events, LLC is a privately owned personalized planning company specializing in Weddings and special
My duties as an IE Intern were to assist Andria Mederios, the owner and head planner in any and all of her
I did this by attending client meetings, organizing paperwork, managing all social media accounts, marketing,
sending e-mails and telephone calls, designing and attending candy buffets, taking site tours, as well as
working with the Rhode Island Wedding Group.
Working with my site supervisor, Andria, has been an incredibly rewarding experience, because she not only is
an expert in the wedding planning industry, but she is extremely helpful and a great teacher as well. She has
been a great mentor to me throughout this entire experience and I have loved working for her!
From extravagant Oceanside galas to small backyard affairs, we
treat each event with the same dedication and attention as if it
were our very own.
We make it our responsibility to carry out your wishes exactly as
you’ve envisioned down to the very last detail, but, with the same
passion as if you had done it yourself. Through the entire
planning process, we pride ourselves on being great listeners and
really understanding the vision you are trying to achieve.
We hold ourselves to the highest professional standards and are
extremely responsive to our clients; our goal is to make each
client feel like they are our #1 and only client… as they should.

Infinite Events, LLC has
also expanded into two
other businesses as well:
Infinite Candy Buffets
and The Original Candy
Infinite Candy Buffets
Infinite Candy Buffets specializes in designing, providing, and executing a gourmet dessert station for your
wedding or special event.
We have an inventory of beautiful glassware that gets filled with gorgeous candy and desserts in your event’s
color scheme as well as a personalized backdrop, speciality linens, or frames.
Our Candy Buffets are not just a dessert table, they are truly the focal point of any event. Guests love coming
and getting to create their own favor bag, and are truly in awe of the detail in the buffets.
The Original Candy Girls are a spin-off of the vintage
cigarette girls of the 1920’s, 30’s, and 40’s and add a
special touch to any event.
The trays the women (or men!) carry are customized to
your choice but often have a Old Hollywood or vintage
feel with candy cigarettes, licorice, etc.
However, the Original Candy Girls can be themed any
way to fit any event and are sure to be a hit!
By the end of my internship I hoped to successfully:
Learn the basics of Wedding and Event Planning
Improve my professionalism and communication skills
Build a strong network of knowledgeable wedding industry professionals
Gain experience first hand with clients, venues, and vendors
• During my internship experience, my projects changed on a
weekly basis. If we had a wedding planned one weekend, we
would spend the prior days in the office focusing on that one
couple. It can get confusing if you try to bombard yourself
with too many clients at once, because we are so detail
If I was assigned to a wedding, I then would join Andria in all of the final steps of
planning. All of the couples I have worked with were under the “Day Of
Coordinator” Package, which essentially means we take over about one month
before the wedding date, and handle all final meetings with the venue, and
vendors, make a crucial timeline and send it to all parties involved.
Our job is to make sure that the day runs smoothly. It would start by finalizing all
of the information beforehand, and being by the bride’s side almost all day long on
the day of should she need anything.
If I were assigned to work a candy buffet, I would then partner with Andria, and we
would send out a proposal with the candy or desserts we would use, the pricing,
color scheme, etc.
We then would go through the inventory and design a set up to make sure
everything looks symmetrical and beautiful.
On the day of, I would help set up the table, which is a very particular job. We
make sure that everything looks like it just came out of a magazine and guests are
As an attendant, I would stand near the table and make sure that it is kept clean
and full at all times.
Candy Buffet at
Oceancliff Hotel and
Interning has taught me a lot about managing my time correctly. I had a
responsibility not only to my supervisor, but to the clients and vendors
working with us to make sure that everything was done in a timely
Managing school work, picking up shifts at work, interning full time, and
being vice president of my sorority has been challenging but extremely
rewarding because I learned how to successfully manage multiple
things at one time, with serious deadlines!
When I first started, I was nervous to call clients or vendors on the phone, but I have
since improved tremendously when talking with clients and other professionals. I know
that in order to make a successful call or have a successful meeting, you must be
I always make sure that I prepare what I am going to say beforehand, and no longer
When working at any event, it is important to always be as prepared as you can be.
At Infinite Events, we make sure to carry “Emergency Kits” filled with everything,
from tissues and safety pins to deodorant and nail files.
One of the first weddings I worked, I was extremely nervous because right before
our bride walked down the aisle, her fake eyelashes began to come off.
I have no previous experience with applying makeup to others, but it was my job to
fix it. It was very nerve-wrecking, but it was up to us to make her wedding perfect.
These types of thing happen all of the time in this industry, and I now feel as
though I can come up with a solution in the blink of an eye!
The material I’ve learned in previous courses such as Weddings and Ceremonies was
extremely helpful to me in my internship experience and I’m thankful to have taken that
course beforehand. Such as different cultures and religions and their respective traditions.
However, getting hands on experience in this industry is by far the best way to truly learn
There are many situations that you can read about in a textbook or classroom, but
experiencing it first hand has been a great learning experience.
I have truly learned more than I ever thought I would within my short time with Infinite
Events . I have also been able to relate my current Strategic Marketing course with relevant
information on how we market at Infinite, whether it is on social media or through e-mail
