Last week I had the honor of being in the presence of some AWEsome wedding planners throughout the world, "wedding innovators." The purpose of this trip was to get inspired, take time for ME to work on my business and come back to Chicago with innovative ideas to WOW my flavor of clients.
In the midst of being in the presence of some wonderful individuals, I had the pleasure of staying at the Green Valley Ranch Resort. What a lovely experience. Very elegant hotel that screams "Grace and Luxury." Two of my favorite words.
When I arrived on Sunday, I had the pleasure of touring 3 Vegas Chapels. I even saw Elvis pull up at the chapel in a pink cadillac! Will you believe that Las Vegas performs around 120,000 weddings a year and that some of the chapels perform as many as 450 weddings a month? You can also get a marriage license until midnight.
On the last day of this fabulous week, I had the honor of meeting Chris Easter (co-founder of the www.TheManRegistry.com), Ian Prosser (founder and award winning floral and event designer of Botanica), Stacie Francombe (formerly of Get Married and who recently launched "Celebrity Wedding Reporter"), the classy Sylvia Weinstock ("Queen of Wedding Cakes") and Ciara Daykin (CEO of Firefly Occasions).
If you’re looking to have your wedding in Las Vegas, I can definitely point you in the right direction. I now have great wedding contacts there.
Wedding love & hugs,
