Since I have a lot of Chicago wedding vendor readers and aspiring wedding planner reading my blog I wanted to let you know of an event that may be of interest to you. My friend Katy Carrier of Carrier & Associates and hosting a great event in Chicago on Monday, October 17th. Law School for Wedding Professionals is a day-long educational workshop covering the legalities of owning, protecting and growing your wedding business.
On Wednesday, January 20th, I was asked to be the speaker for ISES/ABC Weddings with Wow Luncheon in Indianapolis. I felt so welcomed by my host, Lee Johnson of Chair Covers. Inc. The luncheon was so gorgeous I really did say "WOW!" when I walked into the room. Different designers and florists designed tabletops which were so impressive. I did a presentation on the Top Weddings Trends for 2009, supported by many pictures of past events I have done. It was a lively discussion and people had some great questions following my presentation. Below are some pictures from that event. I have to remember next time to have someone snap a picture of me when I am presenting.
Emlyn and Andy Minor's wedding was a spectacular summer day in Glenview, Illinois at Valley Lo Country Club. The weather was perfect and were able to hold the ceremony outside overlooking the lake at the country club. It was the longest day of the year and the guests enjoyed the porch while listening to classic jazz and munching on chocolate covered strawberries late into the evening.
