Last week I co-chaired with Anthony Gowder of Anthony Gowder Designs, The Wedding Event for The Special Event Show which was in Chicago for the first time in 25 years. I was flattered to be asked to chair this event and represent the city of Chicago and all that we have to offer for weddings and events. The evening seated dinner was for a sold out crowd of 700 and the guests were treated to a delight of design, awesome music by The Becca Kaufman Orchestraand Sasha Souza's Favorite Things presentation at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile.
This event in Chicago was a million dollar event produced with the most incredible Chicago and National sponsors that this industry has to offer. Over the coming weeks I will be featuring the sponsors on our blog so you can learn a little more about their businesses and how they are the leaders in their fields. So please check back often as I am able to share their stories, products and services with you. And next week you will get to see the amaing pictures by Rick Aguilar who photographed the event.
