What a wonderful week at Engage 13 at the Montelucia Resort and Spa in Phoenix last month! Rebecca Grinnals and Kathryn Arce have created something very, very special on so many levels. As well as a place to learn, gain insights and pull back the zoom on the Wedding Industry to get the big picture, it is exceptionally nurturing on a personal, emotional level. Seeing old friends again and making new connections in a dynamic, challenging and supportive environment was a real privilege. The attention to detail was immaculate from registration at the start to the over the top closing night Gala. Just want to express my appreciation to Todd Events for design and décor; Suite 206’s great furniture; La Tavola for their lovely linens; Dazian Fabrics for the stage and gala draping; Angelic Grove, Butterfly Petals, Blume Events, Wild Child Floral Design, The Flower Studio, Lux Florist, Table Tops Etc., Flora Bella and Todd Events for the fabulous florals; then all the delightful goodies we got from Gifts for the Good Life, Arak Kanofsky Studios, Taylor'd Favors, The Birthday Party Project, and Checkerboard; West Coast Music - especially for the spectacular 20-something piece band for the Gala; Design Sound and PSAV for the sound and vision; I Do Films, Elysium Productions, Chellise Michael, Scott Clark Photography and Elan Artists (pictures on this post courtesy of Elan Artists) for the beautiful videos and stills.
