The Castle Post … ABC Mtg May 14, 2009

Jacki and Jaimeson hosted the Association of Bridal Consultants, Kentucky Members, May 2009 meeting at THE Castle Post!  How exciting is that?

If you’re not familiar with The Castle Post, please go HERE.

As you can imagine, anyone and everyone who has lived in Kentucky wants to get inside of THE CASTLE.  Well, Jacki and I were asked to tour the facility a few months back … which we thoroughly enjoyed.  Then, our state coordinator, Elisa MacKenzie with Elegant Events by Elisa, sent out an email to all KY Members asking for unique locations and topics to hold an ABC Meeting.  Well, of course Jacki and I said – THE CASTLE!

This needed to be a SPECIAL meeting, so we decided to come up with some unique touches (as you see below).  The topic for the day was National and Local Statistics and Trends that we are seeing in our Industry, despite what the doom and gloom News Anchors are saying.  There were over 40 guests in attendance and we all had a fabulous time networking, touring the CASTLE and of course, talking WEDDINGS!

Here are some DETAIL photos from our meeting:

* when everyone was seated in the main ballroom, there were three items waiting for them … the first being a nicely folded napkin with the day’s agenda … the second being a yummy chocolate covered strawberry with a tag stating “life’s short … eat dessert first” … and finally, they all received a fairytale carriage candle from it’s so pretty! {honestly, how many venues can you really use this favor} …
