Five Grain Events Welcomes Intern, Emily

Even amidst these strange times, we are thrilled to be welcoming our 2020 Intern, Emily Balentine to the FGE team!  She’ll be working remotely doing some behind-the-scenes work for the month of April and then take a quick respite to start up again in July.  We are so grateful for her flexibility to enable us to work together this year.  Read a little about her below, and make sure to say “hi” when you see her out and about with us later in the summer 🙂

Hello everyone! My name is Emily Balentine and I am excited to be interning at Five Grain Events. I graduated last year from Marquette University with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Welfare and Justice; however, my true passion lies in event planning. I have worked behind the scenes for various events as an assistant building manager and most recently as a banquet events server. However, it is due to my experience coordinating college leadership conferences, fashion show fundraisers, and more that I realized how beautifully challenging and exciting the world of events can be. Being a type A person, I enjoy organizing, networking, and successfully executing projects.

I am very grateful for the opportunity to work with and learn from everyone at Five Grain Events. As I work with Joan and her team, I look forward to gaining insight into how a successful wedding/events business is managed and what details are often foundational to the success of an event. From considering how to best layout and organize vendor information and day-of schedules to embracing the magic and creativity that each client brings to the table, I hope to hone my skills and provide support to Five Grain Events. I would also really love to get to know the team and gain greater confidence as a future event coordinator. 🙂
