This year, I had the honor of being a member of the planning committee for the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) 2013 Business of Brides Conference in West Palm Beach. The conference took place from November 10th-12th with over 300 wedding professionals including planners, photographers, florist, etc. I assumed the role of Team Leader which included planning the breakfast and lunch for Monday, November 11th.
The overall theme for the conference was Palm Beach Chic and our color scheme throughout the conference was influenced by Lily Pulitzer, who's known for her colorful designs. The Monday breakfast was a Sunny Delight theme with a fun and bright color scheme of orange and yellow. Monday's lunch was a Sea Breeze theme which was influenced by the blues and greens of the ocean. Both events took place at the West Palm Beach Convention Center. These would not have been successful events without our extremely generous sponsors. The breakfast sponsors included Connie Duglin for the linens and napkins, A Touch of Class for the chiavari chairs and pads, and Special Moments and Carmen Mesa Weddings and Events for the centerpieces. Lunch sponsors were Connie Duglin for the linens and napkins, A Touch of Class for the chiavari chairs and pads, Giordano's Floral Creations for the centerpieces, and A&P Designs for the menu cards. Everything turned out great! Although, being a part of the committee kept me away from attending workshops during the conference, it was great to briefly catch up with my old ABC friends and make new ones as well. Here are a few pictures from both events which were captured by BG Pictures Photography and Allen Jay Images.
