Last night I attended the first of hopefully many annual kick-off events with WPIC. We often have regional get-togethers, and we have an online community to chat about whats happening in the industry, but last night our regional reps brought all of the Ontario regions together. What happens when you attend an event planned by not 1 by 5 wedding planners? Magic, that’s what!
Please excuse our iphone photos !
The event started at Renaissance on the Creek in Mississauga as a cocktail hour with a signature drink. Beautiful blue cotton candy martinis. I wasn’t drinking, so I didn’t try one but they sure looked yummy! The cocktail hour was a great opportunity to meet up with fellow planners. They had a photo booth, some new secret apps for our phones, and my favourite was the giant jenga game! Yes- a giant jenga game from Party Starters. What a great idea!
Dinner was then served. I’m not a huge salad person, but look how pretty it was! And the dressing was amazing!
On a side note, the buns they served were sooo yummy! I love me some carbs!!Our entree was chicken stuffed with super yummy rice that tasted more like risotto., veggies and potato wedges. Sorry no photo, I was busy eating! Dessert was a trio of mini creme brulee, tiramisu, and chocolate mousse in a chocolate cup!
During dinner with had a presentation from Paras Events, speaking to us about how to keep balance in our business and personal lives. We then had a panel of experts moderated by the amazing Lindsay Mogford. WPIC then presesnted some of us with special certificates for beign part of the WPIC community!
Shugga finished off the night with their stellar sound!
Thank you so so much to all of the reps who put this event together! It was well worth it, and I hope it becomes an annual event!
