engage!11: Night + Day
Here’s what I expected before attending engage!11: getting inspired through a meeting of the best minds of our industry. But what I got from the luxury wedding event held in San Diego was so much more. A perfect wedding day is typically such a high-pressure event. Everyone from photographers, videographers, event designers, floral artists, caterers, cake designers to other inspired artists work closely together to create a wonderful day of celebration for a blissful couple. We don’t get many opportunities outside of work to just get to know each other and hang out, and let loose.
This was my first time at engage! and now that it’s over, I can’t wait for the next! Kathryn and Rebecca, you sure know how to throw a party. It was a wonderful 3 days of brilliant fun with like-minded individuals who are smart, funny and so generous. It was a great opportunity to learn from brilliant speakers, such as Monique Lhuillier, Mindy Weiss, Simon T Bailey, Marcy Blum, David Beahm and Diann Valentine – all of whom are inspiring leaders, but also really, really cool people to hang out and talk to. It was such an exceptional experience – that I wish to leave everyone a nice little wrap-up, courtesy of images from the photographer extraordinaires of Mel & Co. Look out next week for my bridal inspirations based on the gorgeous details from engage!11.
