Dear Rev. Smith:

I found out about your need for a wedding planner when I checked for such a position on JobBankUSA.com. I want to believe I'm the ideal person for the job. For years I have been helping friends and neighbors and family members plan their weddings, coordinating events, dΘcor, clothing, food, flowers, etc. It would be my pleasure to assume this role at your church and to bring all details together so the church and the bridal parties all benefit.

I'm writing this cover letter in hopes that we can meet in person to discuss this work and so I can show you photos of some of the weddings I've planned and coordinated.

I am currently available for interviews any weekday afternoon after 3:00. Are you free one day next week? I'll be happy to come to the church office. Please call me at 786-909-9098 to set up a time. Thank you for considering me for the job. I look forward to meeting you.
