A. Dominick Events has a fast paced work environment and we seek talented interns who crave learning new skills and aren’t afraid to tackle big projects. As an intern you will get to work with our staff, while working on real projects that will teach you what event planning is really about.

Format for Learning and Future Benefits:

Our firm prides itself on the quality of its internship program and many of our former interns are now working in influential positions in event planning roles in Washington, DC and beyond. Our introductions and recommendations have helped our former interns to secure positions at many companies including; The Ritz Carlton, Hay Adams Hotel, Elan Artists, Amaryllis Inc, our own firm and many others.

We begin our internship with a full day of intensive training and provide each intern a comprehensive full training manual. Each day, interns are provided with varied tasks that are discussed in detail and overseen by their direct supervisor. At the conclusion of each day, the intern is required to recap their progress providing opportunity for supervisor feedback and learning.

At the mid-point of the semester a quiz and review are given to assess each interns’ progress and to establish a dialog to ensure that the interns’ goals are being reached.

At the conclusion of the semester, a final review is conducted to access the progress of the intern and to discuss the intern’s goals beyond the internship. At this time career advice, resume review and if appropriate, recommendations and introductions are made to possible future employers.

Congratulations Katy and Matt

June 24, 2018. Category: anniversary

No one really knows when exactly Katy and Matt first met, but somewhere in idyllic Charlottesville in the mid-2000s their love story began.

Katy and Matt’s perfectly charming DC wedding was held at the iconic Hay-Adams Hotel

Their beautiful stationery suite  by cheree berry paper was simple yet elegant!

The bride’s sweet personality was reflected in simple yet elegant flowers from Sidra Forman.

The bride chose centerpieces of mostly cream blooms and fresh greenery with just a hint of peach.

Happy First Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Wiest

We wish you a lifetime of endless love and laughter!

Congratulations Wendy and Drew

June 17, 2018. Category: anniversary

This adorable couple’s mutual love of golf inspired their preppy summer wedding at the Green Spring Valley Hunt Club, which holds a special place in both their hearts. It is where they golfed together during their first summer together, and like any good  husband Drew still lets Wendy have unlimited mulligans!

The couple wanted to have green and white florals to go with their traditional and festive, outdoor summer wedding.

Their favorite color is blue (which is also the bride’s now-maiden name) so they selected shades of blue and white linens to go with their navy escort cards, cocktail napkins and custom koozies.

Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Jordan

We wish you a lifetime of love, laughter and endless rounds of golf!

This adorable couple spent two years planning their gorgeous summertime Eastern Shore affair at Kirkland Manor in St. Michaels, Maryland.

Their “fun, fresh, elegant” affair featured a white and green color palette with gold and wooden accents.

Dinner was served at long, natural-wood tables with white lace runners under an expansive white tent on the water.

Happy First Anniversary  Nikki and Jeremy
