Well, we just returned from our annual ABC Business of Brides conference! What an exciting time this is for weddings! We all had a blast and new relationships were formed! I was given the privilege and pleasure once again to help plan and oversee the conference for the second consecutive year. I so enjoy doing this, and the opportunity to give back to the industry I am blessed to be a part of. This year we were in Newport Beach, California! If you’ve never been, you may want to add this location to your list of places you would like to visit – breathtakingly beautiful! We had many wonderful speakers & presenters including Barbara Wallace
and our special guest, world-renowned wedding & event -planner extraordinaire, TV Host and lifestyle expert "Colin Cowie"
of Lifestyles and now the new host of Get Married
! Colin has such a passion and enthusiasm for life and weddings and his brides! He’s so inspiring and very contagious! He’s a genuine person and we learned so much from him. I had the added benefit of working directly with him and his wonderful team! What a treat! We all truly had a great time with Colin and at the whole event! I can’t wait to share more with you!
Everyone who had a hand in this year’s event did an awesome job! This was a spectacular conference! Thank you to all of you for showing us what Southern California has to offer and for blowing us away with your amazing talent!
