WIPA - Not Just Another Networking Event

We've been in the Atlanta Wedding Industry for over ten years and it is always a pleasure to mix and mingle with other industry professionals. On January 10, 2013 we had the opportunity to attend our first WIPA meeting. WIPA is s a non-profit association that is run by its esteemed members.  They understand what it takes to produce a wedding since we represent the multitude of wedding disciplines: cake designers, caterers, DJ's, florists, entertainment companies, hoteliers, invitation companies, musicians, officiants, photographers, rental companies, wedding planners, venues, videographers and many more. Lindsay Pitt of TOAST® Events is the Atlanta Regional Director and invited us to sponsor the stationery for this awesome event. It was indeed not just another networking event in Atlanta. The meeting was held at The Estate, A Legendary Event's latest venue addition and it was nothing short of fabulous. Many industry professionals attending this event rarely leave their offices to network so it was an honor to be in the midst of such an esteemed group of individuals. Most intriguing was the amazing, Calder Clark of Calder Clark Designs, who was the guest speaker. She really inspired us to create events that are innovative and filled with all the characteristics of our clients. Calder's designs are incredible and she is "killing the game" in Charleston. I can't wait to go visit her!

Jeremy Harwell of Harwell Photography captured every detail. Here are a few photos from the event.

Great spending time with our friends Gabrielle and Clay of Edge Design Group.

It is WIPA's mission to advance the wedding profession, enhance the professional growth of members, uphold the highest ethics, and educate the public about WIPA-qualified specialists.

I believe WIPA will indeed be the most respected national community for wedding professionals who want to be recognized as masters and innovators.

Atlanta, the bar has been raised!

Our Gift To You

Every year, we are blessed with wonderful clients to serve and while we seek to show them our gratitude through excellent service; we feel compelled to do something special to truly show our appreciation for their patronage. This comes in the form of our annual Holiday Soiree. Our Client Appreciation Soiree offers our clients the opportunity to relax and enjoy an evening filled with food, dancing, and mingling. The soiree also presents our staff with the chance to meet some clients for the first time and personally thank our clients and vendors for making our year the best ever.
This year's soiree was held at the Emily Amy Gallery located in the BrickWorks Complex. Two of our clients, Heavenly Divine Catering and Catered Cakes, helped to provide decadent desserts for the evening. Julius Grimes of KreativTouch Photography was present to ensure that the soiree would remain a memory even after the night ended. I Do Linens provided fabulous linens for the evening and Floral Couture created beautiful floral arrangements to add the right amount of sparkle. We certainly enjoyed mingling with our clients and other industry professionals.
Our soiree helps us look forward to the next year where we can continue to do what we love- providing our clients with purely wondrous inspiration.
