Internships  

We're looking to grow our team!

If you think you have what it takes, send us your resume! 

We're passionate about teaching and sharing, so check out our internship program below!

Have you dreamed of planning a wedding at iconic venues like The Mayo Hotel, Spain Ranch, Dream Point Ranch, or designing one of a kind photo shoots for publications? You'll want to be on our team this Spring.

 

We're looking for eager, self starters with impeccable organization skills. If you're fast paced, outgoing, and have an extremely high work ethic, we're looking for you. No wedding experience necessary, we are looking for someone that loves weddings and hungry to learn.

 

As an intern you'll be working occasional weddings with us as well as at least 1 day during the week learning the behind the scenes process and secrets of wedding planning from the owner of XO Event Co. You'll be invited to attend meetings with clients and/or wedding pros as part of the planning process.

 

We work with couples and vendors to orchestrate and produce what most of our clients see as biggest day of their lives while safety pinning a bridesmaid into her dress, sweating while loading heavy items into the mom's car, and switching to your third pair of shoes for the day because your feet are starting to hurt so bad from being on them.

 

Our interns are an extension of our team. You'll meet our clients first hand. If we are stylizing a wedding or shoot, you'll be there to give input and take your shot at designing a beautiful tablescape.

 

Fun? Definitely! Hard work? Certainly. Those who aren't afraid to work fast, smart, and hard please apply.

 

**This internship is unpaid, but working weddings and events will be paid for $12/hour.

Past Interns 

Brynnan Norris

Alumni Center Facility Coordinator at the K-State 

“Throughout my summer working with Whitney and XO Event Co. as the Wedding and Event Planning Intern, I was given the opportunity to network with so many companies and individuals in the Tulsa wedding industry. I was able to work with amazing people, create long-lasting relationships, and expand my knowledge for wedding and event planning. Towards the end of my summer, I was able to design, coordinate, execute, and even model for my own styled shoot! Whitney let me run wild with the ideas, but was always there to help me out with design aspects or reaching out to vendors. It turned out to be a huge success, and something I will never forget. I cannot thank Whitney and her team enough for that summer.”-Brynnan Norris

Maggie Stearman

 Lead Coordinator for XO  Event Co. 

"I started interning my Junior year of college. Interning with Whitney was one of the best decisions I have made! Whitney loves the industry so much that she wants to share that passion with other people. From planning fun retreats, to buying coffee or lunch, Whitney takes the time to support her interns. My first wedding I did as an intern, I got completely soaked because I was outside holding an umbrella for guests most of the time. As Whitney always says, you have to be willing to do the non glamorous things too- whatever it takes to ensure a perfect day for our clients!  I am grateful for everything I learning as an intern that set me up for success as a coordinator. "

OKC Lead Planner, Marketing Consultant 

"I learned all I know from Whitney. Coming into the internship position I was eager to start learning. Little did I know that Whitney would be one of the best influences and teachers that I could ever have. She directs with purpose and leads her team with passion. Her love for all things wedding flows when she teaches others the ropes of the wedding and event industry. Through my years working with Whitney and the XO Team, I have the confidence to coordinate, plan and work with couples through their wedding day."

Kaitlyn Messina

Student/ Event Coordinator

"I absolutely loved my experience interning for XO Event Co. Going into the internship, I had zero experience in the event industry but was so eager to learn about all that it entailed. With this experience, I was able to gain a better understanding of how to be an event coordinator and even plan an event of my own! I enjoyed all aspects of this internship and am so lucky to have learned from Whitney- she is a true role model and sets a great example of what it looks like to go above and beyond for her clients and staff!

I now hold a position with XO Event Co. and help with Day-Of Coordination. I am hoping to continue gaining exposure and helping with coordination and eventually take on my own clients through XO!" -Kaitlyn Messina

Halle Richards 

Student / Marketing & Event Planning Intern

“Interning in the Fall of 2021 for XO Event Co. was absolutely magical and everything I could of dreamed for in an internship. I had the opportunity to meet and connect with many in the wedding industry to learn everything there is about weddings--and there's a lot!!

I love to write and tap into my creative side which Whitney utilized allowing me to market for them with filming, designing posts, writing blogs and articles and so much more. I definitely could not imagine a better first step into this career path and I am so appreciative of Whitney showing me the way."
