Networking Chicago Style - 8 til 8 and

It was two beautiful fall evenings of sharing in Chicago! 

On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of attending the 8 til 8 event hosted by  Cara and Scott Nava of Carasco Photography. Along with networking with some awesome industry professionals, I enjoyed good food by SundaTipsyCake wow'd us with some delicious treats and Kim Edstrom Schriller and Sara Jenkins-Sutton of Topiarius created the most amazing floral designs.  Finally, if you're looking for a simply unique gift check out "Foodie Registry" .... all proceeds from this event went to Wish Upon A Wedding!

Wednesday I had the opportunity to attend an amazing Wedding networking event at the Chicago History Museum hosted by We were surrounded by beautiful flowers, delicious food, and the top wedding vendors throughout the Chicago area including D Micah Lindsay of Diann Valentine & Associates, Monika Labbe of Creative M Photography, Candace Polk of  Events by Candace, the talented and avant-garde photographer Bryant Johnson , owner of Steelelife Gallery, Sharon Ringier Events, Calligrapher and Stationer Christy Toney as well as Jim Verraros & Bill Brennan of Bridal Expo Chicago to name a few.

In networking, I learned of the new partnership between Vera Wang and David’s Bridal. Gowns will range from $600 to $1,500, with most coming in under $1,200, which will make a designer gown much more affordable for today’s Brides.  The Knot's Inc., Carley Roney was so generous with her time and spent the evening speaking with Chicago Wedding Professionals about current trends in our industry.

 To round up the week, Danie Roberts of the Bridal Sampler held her MWIPMixer which I was unable to attend due to client meetings.  From what I hear - It was great! They learned how to shake their Tambourine with Souffle' Enterpriss Inc.  As a new member of their advisory board I recommend that you get involved with MWIP and grow your network and have a little fun along the way! Don't forget about Girls Night out - on October 28th & The Bridal Sampler Wedding Expo - is Sunday - October 24th - a lot going on - see you soon!
