I am off to San Francisco, California this weekend to attend Wedding 360, The Academy for Planners and Designers conference at the St Regis Hotel. Created for wedding planners, weddings designers and floral designers, The Academy will provide in-depth and how to classes taught by the masters in the business. I am so excited to see old friends (and meet some new friends) and learn from some of the best in the industry including Rebecca Grinnals, Sean Low, David Beahm, Todd Fiscus and Tara Guerard. I am also looking forward to experiencing the Four Seasons San Francisco property where the classes will be held on Monday. In looking at the agenda it looks like there are some wonderful parties planned for the attendees. I am excited to see the new trends for weddings and to come home and share them with my brides and grooms.
I "Fell in Love with Indy" last week when my assistant, Kristin Weis, (seen above in the picture) and I attended the Association of Bridal Consultants Annual Business of Brides Conference. This is my sixth annual conference I have attended and was excited when they decided to host it in the Midwest this year. The Indianapolis wedding planners from ABC did a great job planning this event and event greater that they ordered up 60 degree weather in November! There were 40 wedding planner attendees from Chicago as well so it was so fun to spend time with people from my hometown.
