A Note from the Chief Chica Verde

Emerald Certified Seminars is really a lifelong culmination for me personally. Through Emerald Events & Weddings and my wedding planner certification course at Collin College, I have educated event planners and brides about eco-chic events. I firmly believe social events should be about love, joy, family and friends; not waste and greed.

The lack of a cohesive & comprehensive green event certification has always irked me. Following the old adage “don’t complain about a problem unless you are willing to suggest a solution”, I decided to develop Emerald Certified Seminars to fill the need I see and hear about every day. Planners and vendors are clamoring for a stress-free, fun, and detailed eco-chic certification & that’s what we will deliver nationwide!

Ghandi once said “be the change you wish to see in the world” and that’s exactly what Emerald Events & Weddings is doing! We are excited to bring that sustainable change to our planners and vendors. The sponsors we have hand-chosen will be forever part of that change! I hope you come along for this amazing ride!
