San Diego ABC celebrates 20 years

On June 16th, the San Diego Chapter of the Association of Bridal Consultants celebrated their 20th years of existence. As a special treat, we invited all of the past chapter presidents to join in the festivities and to thank them for their contributions throughout the years.

The meeting was held on a beautiful day at the La Jolla Cove Bridge Club, overlooking to Pacific Ocean. Over 100 people attended the function which was highlighted by the former directors sharing stories of experiences past and present.

Current chapter director Sharon Cole (third, from left, back row) read a congratulatory letter from ABC National President David Wood and unveiled his generous gift of a promotional banner for the group to use at meetings and bridal shows.

The San Diego Chapter was founded in 1989 by Martha Cook (far left) and has grown to a current membership of over 140 consultants, novices and vendors. It is recognized as San Diego’s preeminent wedding networking group and is looking forward to another prosperous 20 years.

As ABC’s Venue Chairperson, I had the privilege to organize this memorable event, and amazing sponsors made this special occasion even more unforgettable.

Guests were welcomed by a handsome groom in tuxedo (by The Gentleman’s Tux Club) handing out programs designed and printed by Jenn Ragusa at Pink Star Design.

Tables were embellished with linens by Elegant Events Party Rentals, centerpieces by Rae Florae (pictured with programs above) and Trinity Flowers.

Catering was provided by The Abbey with colorful and scrumptious food stations strategically located in the patio area.

So Belle Favors created small chocolate favors with “Happy Anniversary” scrolls, while the delicious cake was by For The Love Of Cake.

Our official photographer was Sandy James, and Bob Hoffman filmed the entire event. I can’t wait to see the video!
