WIPA at Seven Degrees

September’s WIPA event was held at Seven Degrees in Laguna Beach, California.  Seven Degrees‘ multi-level design allows for a diverse experience in one location with spectacular views of the canyon and hillside, while creating a relaxed atmosphere.

The banquet area is modern, elegant and spacious enough to accommodate  over 110 wedding and event industry professionals.The venue features in-house lighting and sound, which is always a wonderful perk for a party. Once again, WIPA presented an outstanding program with a presentation by Jen O’Sullivan.  Jen is a photographer and marketer who shared her insight on business promotion and marketing strategies.

Check out the photos below for the lovely set up created by theWIPA program committee.  It is always a pleasure to network withWIPA attendees and also enjoy such informational speakers.

2012 Blissful Wishes Ball

Attending the Blissful Wishes Ball is always a feel-good evening! This was the third year, and once again the Wish Upon a Wedding board and committee created an outstanding event.

Aside from the beautiful venue (Vibiana is one of my favorites!) and all the lovely decor and amazing catering by Good Gracious, the highlight of the evening is always the video about the special couple.

Knowing that those of us in the wedding industry have the opportunity to help these couples makes this a most special fundraiser. Seeing the joy and happiness the couple can experience on their wedding day is priceless.

Most of us cannot even imagine having such challenges in our lives. To give them this special day is so easy for us, and so important for them. I am always proud to participate in the ball and to know that we helped to fulfill their dream. We are all especially proud of our friends who received a shining star award this year: Jeff Black, Jake Kloberdanz, and Liese Gardner.
