Introducing Wedding Skills Workshop

Monday, April 20th, 2009

Along with my dear friend Kasey from Bliss Weddings and Events, I am thrilled to introduce Wedding Skills Workshop!

Wedding Skills Workshop is a new way to learn and interact in the Columbus area.  Kasey and I both agree that we have outstanding networking associations in the area but wanted more in depth and directed education.  We hope that other vendors will join us in raising the bar and taking their knowledge and service levels to new heights!

Please visit The Wedding Skills Workshop’s blog to learn more about our first offering: The Floral Rescue Workshop.

This workshop is perfect for photographers, catering managers, banquet managers, on site coordinators, videographers, wedding planners and coordinators – basically anyone who comes into contact with the bride and groom and their flowers will benefit from this hands on, intensive workshop.  We are limiting this workshop to 10 participants so everyone has a chance to learn and ask questions.

Indy here I come!

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Just as a head’s up – I am heading to Indianapolis this morning to attend Eventology 2009 – a educational conference and gathering of some of the best and brightest wedding and event planners in the country.  I am looking so forward to meeting and learning from and with these ladies (and one gentlemen that I know of).

I will still have access to email from time to time but might be a touch slow on responses – please forgive any delays and I’ll return any non-urgent emails and phone calls on Friday when I am back.

Blogging Bootcamp Recap

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

I spent a lovely day yesterday learning all about the nuts and bolts of blogging from a true expert – Liene Stevens from Blue Orchid Designs and The Smart Planner.

We had a great turnout of about 20 wedding pros from Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, West Virginia and Kentucky.  The attendees included planners, photographers, videographers and a choreographer.  Watch for some great new blogs and amazing revamped blogs to come!

Liene is doing bootcamps all over the country this summer – very possibly in a city near you.  Whether you have a well established blog or just want to start one, the blogging bootcamp has something for everyone and I highly recommend it!

A special thanks to my co-hosts Kasey from Bliss, Julie from Blue Skies and Lisa from Red Gallery for all their help and to Liene for coming to the frigid north all the way from Arizona.
