The Special Event 2011 – The Wedding Lunch (Part 1)

The Special Event is the largest trade show and conference in the world for event professionals like me. We make connections with thousands of key event industry colleagues, experience education by choosing among over 100 conference sessions and workshops taught by amazing speakers, and discover thousands of event products and services on the trade show floor that I can then suggest for your memorable celebrations.

The 2011 edition was hosted in Phoenix, Arizona, and one of the showcasing events was The Wedding Lunch. Sasha Souza was the key note speaker: she put together a program filled with Her Favorite Things for Weddings.

A ballroom at the Convention Center was transformed into a magical environment with more than 72 tables featuring 9 different designs. The theme was “In Love With Metallics”: the color palette included gold, silver, copper and bronze with soft peach, white and blue accents.

In addition, seven stunning wedding galleries showcased the amazing talent of designers. Here are a few pictures from each of them:

FLORAL FUSION – Design by Wendell Design Group Florist

THE GOLD STANDARD – Tailored elegance designed by Victoria Canada Weddings & Events and Wildflower Linen

BLUE HEAVEN – A dairy-dream brunch designed by Cachet Wedding Designs, Tic-Tock Couture Florals, Good Gracious Events and BBJ Linen

Thanks to Melissa Jill Photography, the sponsor photographer for The Wedding Lunch 2011, for the images.

More to come next week!
