We kicked off 2017 by attending the Alumni Enrichment Conference hosted by The Bridal Society. The Bridal Society is the nation’s largest organization of Certified Wedding Planners with over two thousand members. We learned so much to better ourselves as businesswomen and wedding planners. The day was filled with amazing speakers teaching us how to network like a pro, what Wedding Photographers wished planners knew, getting inside the mind of a Wedding DJ and SO much more. We can’t wait to take what we learned from the conference and apply it to our amazing clients.
During the conference, the Valued Industry Professional (VIP) Awards were also announced. The awards included: Styled Shoot of the Year, Wedding of the Year, Website of the year, and Wedding Planner of the Year. Sparkle Team Member, Krisy, was nominated for the 2016 Wedding Planner of the Year and she WON!
“I can’t even express how grateful I am to receive this award. This award exemplifies all my hard work and dedication I put into each and every one of my weddings. Thank you to my brides/mother of the brides for giving me those heartfelt and amazing reviews. Thank you to the vendors (who are more like family) for sending in letters praising my work with you all. Thank you to my husband and family for supporting me by not only encouraging me but for helping on wedding days. Last but not least, thank you to my mentor and dear friend, Laurie Hartwell for inspiring me to be the best planner and girl boss I could be. ” – Krisy
