Once upon a time I was given the awesome opportunity to attend the Association of Bridal Consultants annual conference held this year in Denver, Colorado. And, IT WAS AWESOME! I was consistently blown away by the wealth of knowledge and professionalism to surround myself.
When I arrived, the snow started to fall. It couldn’t have been a more perfect welcoming!
I set up the Wedding Protector Plan’s booth shortly after getting settled. Our giveaways were bling pens and we also had a drawing for a Coach purse. (I think it goes without saying that our booth was a hit!)
On the first night of the conference, ABC kicked things off with a Tailgate Party. We were told to wear a jersey from our favorite team. There is no doubt about which team I flaunted! I even found a few new friends! On the left is Kamarah Angus of Kalydaskope!
And then I bumped into celebrity wedding planner, Donnie Brown!
Take a peek at some of the table decor from breakfast and lunch!
The breakout information sessions were fabulous! I learned SO much and walked away incredibly inspired. My favorite session was from Rebecca Grinnals, the co-founder of Disney Fairytale Weddings. She was all about wedding trends!Everyone was so kind and passionate about their work in the industry. I definitely felt like I was exactly where I should have been.
Before heading back to Tampa, I just had to have my book signed by Donnie! And take a real picture too!
I gave him a bling pen – check out what he signed in my book…
Ha! What a character he was!
Now I’m back home full of ideas! I am beyond grateful for this opportunity and I’m already gearing up for next year’s conference in West Palm Beach, Florida!
