Association of Bridal Consultants 2009 Annual Conference

From November 8 - 10, wedding planners and professionals from around the country gathered for the annual Association of Bridal Consultants Business of Brides conference . In addition to the inspirational special guest speakers, there were breakout sessions and 10 minute topics where you could choose your topic of choice to sit in on. In addition to the education that was had by all who attended, fun luncheons and off-site events were planned. I thought I would share a few pics from the luncheons that took place! I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.


Check out the centerpiece at this head table!



I really like the simplicity of this arrangement as well as its versatility. I can see it in a formal, modern wedding or for an outdoor wedding.











A very interesting way of displaying a cake!

I thought this was a great centerpiece!...perfect for a winter wedding with the silver branches and crystals hanging from it.
Here is a variation of the above branch and crystal look with floral embellishments.

Pardon the blurred hand in the pic! I love this centerpiece because of the fresh colors used as well as the abundance of rose petals used around it. A timeless, classic piece.

This centerpiece was at my table.....a beautiful glass lamp base with votive candles illuminating from inside the base, on the top and bottom.

Instead, they have to wait until they walk through their venue doors to receive some coordination by their venue coordinator or banquet captain, who's primary responsibility is to the get the meal out on time and at an ideal temperature.
