Employment & Bespoken's Shadow Program
I am so honored you are interested in applying for employment or for Bespoken's Shadow Program!
We value our incredibly talented and hardworking team and look for individuals who will be a perfect fit for us, our clients, and our vendors. At this time, we do not have any available full-time positions, but we do on occasion seek applicants for specific part-time or contractual positions.
Most of the Bespoken team members have successfully completed our Shadow Program prior to any possibility of being hired as an employee or contracted employee. Please see below for more information about this program.
However, if you have event experience, you may apply directly via the link below.
Bespoken’s Shadow Program
Rather than hire interns, we hire Shadows for wedding and event days. We open this program at various times throughout the year pending our schedules. Our Shadow Program is highly competitive and offered only to those who are either:
extremely interested in joining our team and may or may not already have event experience
serious about a future career in the weddings, events, or hospitality industries.
The program is a hands-on, educational experience where you get the opportunity to work beside us on several wedding and event days. The program lasts a full wedding season (typically March-June and then August-December). The position of Shadow is an unpaid position that will help to efficiently move our business forward while teaching aspiring wedding and event planners.
After successfully completing the Shadow Program, there is the possibility of moving into our Apprentice Program which allows you to learn more deeply about The Bespoken Method of planning and designing weddings. Those who enter our Apprentice Program are doing so with the intention to join our team.
What are you looking for in a Shadow?
Someone who is dynamic, friendly, and dedicated
Someone who is organized, positive, adaptable, and intuitive
Someone who is interested in and has a passion for weddings and events

Someone who can commit to working approximately 10-15 hours per wedding or event
Someone who has a strong work ethic, loves to learn, can problem solve, is an amazing communicator (both written and orally), and is very responsible
Someone who is willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done and support the team
Someone who is able to commit to shadow at weddings (usually on Saturdays) -- must set aside the entire weekend for the wedding or event
