ISSE San Diego {Part One} – Welcome Party


Last year I had the privilege to organize the Inspire Smart Success Experience by Stacie Francombe here in San Diego. It was an enriching and refreshing experience, working with Stacie was absolutely fantastic and I had the opportunity to partner with a great team of fellow wedding professionals for a memorable event.

I have a lot of pictures and stories to share so stay tuned for more details in the following days!

Stacie Francombe is an authority in the wedding industry. After starting Get Married (growing the title into a nationally distributed quarterly magazine and a TV show), Stacie grew the brand into a multi-million dollar company, and sold it in 2008. She then founded Inspire Smart Success, a three-tiered approach to helping wedding industry businesses grow and succeed utilizing the ISS Magazine, ISS Experience (ISSE) and ISS Mentoring. Stacie offers one-on-one mentoring programs as well as fun, educational seminars and networking events, while providing wedding industry professionals with a specialized magazine.

ISSE is a series of exciting events hosted by Stacie herself and expert panelists throughout the United States and internationally. ISSE focuses on educational seminars that cover a variety of smart business topics and emphasizes networking with the other attendees and speakers.

Stacie is now offering ISS Cultivate, a series of monthly educational webinars for wedding and event professionals that you can attend from the comfort of your home or office, and start enhancing your business knowledge and practices immediately. Registration is now open.

A signature fragrance was created exclusively for the event thanks to Pastiche Custom Perfume – the fragrance bar was a big hit!

I designed a cute dessert table for the occasion – I will show pictures in the next post, there were so many beautiful details!



One of the highlights of the party was the slow-motion photo booth by San Diego Photo Studio.
