Hello to all of my friends! Sarah here with some eye candy for you. I’m pretty sure that some of you might have wondered where I was last Wednesday night. Because I don’t like to leave my fans and friends hanging, I’ll tell you; Last Wednesday night Taryn and I attended the Phoenix Bride and Groom Magazine networking event. It was my first big event since being back and let me tell you, they definitely pulled out all the stops!
For those of you not in the wedding biz, networking events are a time for planners, photographers, caterers, venue coordinators, florists and everyone associated in any way with weddings to get together and meet up. Vendors pitch in to showcase their talents so that other vendors recommend their services to brides. I was especially happy that all of the caterers attending were willing to show us their talents. Serendipity’s contribution to the event was a timelapse shot over 2 days of the set-up.
The theme for the event was “Moulin Rouge,” so as soon as you stepped into the event we were greeted by girls in corsets, sparkles and lots of feathers. The Venue looked like a snapshot taken of Paris in the late 1800s. We came into the main room and I looked up and was shocked to see a girl on a swing about 15 feet off the ground! Entertainers took breaks and primped on the balcony with the infamous ‘red light’ on. There were can-can dancers, crooners, and entertainment all evening. My Tarot card reader told me to wait to make any big commitments in my personal life for 3-6 months, and that I will be able to balance my relationships with my career. Taryn and I waited to get our lip readings done, but by the end of the night we still had about 5 people in line before us, and she wanted to see her kids and I wanted to Skype with my boyfriend (who is still up in Idaho) so we left before our turn came around.
Although I’m new to these things and didn’t have any part in planning the event, I feel like everything went off without a hitch – the food was amazing, the music wasn’t so loud that we couldn’t still talk and mingle. I met great planners, photographers and vendors, and reconnected with a few who I’d met earlier this year. Thank you so much to everyone who was involved, and especially to Phoenix Bride and Groom for hosting the event!
