It’s good to meet you– and I’m so glad you’re here! Let me take a moment to introduce myself and how I came to mentoring wedding industry creatives: I’m Candice Coppola and I am a business owner, wedding planner and designer, a small business coach / mentor, and a published author! You may be familiar with my event planning and design companies, Jubilee Events and Jubilee Events: Caribbean. My first business start out on a whim: I had a desire to plan and design beautiful events, but had no formal training in event planning or the business of weddings. Some how, some way, I developed an intuitive knack for both and in turn, learned a lot during my journey to where I am today.
I’m passionate about the experience we provide our clients, and have a love affair with designing gorgeous event spaces that our couples and their guests will always remember. I’m equally passionate about motivating, teaching, and helping other small businesses in this industry succeed. The wedding industry has grown so much over the past 8 years since I started, and with that growth comes a lot of competition!
My work and voice can be seen in many publications, but most recently and most notably in a new inspirational coffee table book I co-authored entitled, The White Dress: in Color — Inspirations for the Modern Bride. I’m also a tutor for the QC Event School, where I have the wonderful opportunity to work with them on their new courses and mentor QC students. Be on the look out for my second coffee table book– to be released soon (stay tuned for details)!
My favorite color is pink, there isn’t a ruffle I don’t love, I’m always over dressed, and I opted to elope rather than plan a big wedding!
