Brenda Geler

Brenda Geler, an instructor of Wedding Coordination and Design and Hospitality Marketing and Sales, is one of TISOH’s star instructors. Brenda is a TISOH alum, and has returned to TISOH in recent years to join the ranks of esteemed TISOH faculty. Brenda is a true industry professional, offering her students insight into an industry she herself is deeply immersed within. Not only is Brenda a Board member of the Las Vegas Chapter of the Wedding International Professional Association (WIPA), Brenda is the Founder and Director of her own company, Casa Blanca Studio. Casa Blanca provides wedding planning and event design and styling services in the Las Vegas-area, creating custom, curated events of every variety. 

As an instructor at TISOH, Brenda offers her students exciting and interactive classes. Brenda brings in different insights and highlights top trends in the Wedding Coordination and Design and Hospitality Marketing and Sales classes she teaches. Last spring, Brenda took the Hospitality Marketing and Sales class off campus for a site visit to the English Hotel. The students enjoyed visiting the new, trendy property, and appreciated the opportunity to see for themselves how some of the trends and theories they had been discussing came to life in a real-world environment.   

This semester, Brenda has made hands-on skills training an integral component of the Wedding Coordination and Design class. To illustrate her lessons, Brenda brought in tablescape materials, styling four different table settings with candles, chargers, invitations, and tablecloths. Brenda also brought in different draping materials, setting up pipe and drape poles as well as chandeliers. Students benefited from being able to see and touch her examples, and received the opportunity to practice both tablescapes and draping themselves.
