Business of Brides: Association of Bridal Consultants in Newport Beach, California!

Last week, I had the pleasure of heading to Newport Beach, California for the annual Association of Bridal Consultants' Business of Brides Conference. Not only was it educational, but I had a blast networking with wedding planners and vendors from around the world.

The highlight of the conference was a couture luncheon where Colin Cowie was our keynote speaker! He's a fascinating man and we all enjoyed listening to his stories of planning parties all over the globe!

Here are some of the photos I took throughout the conference:

The Flower Girl

I'd love to have my tea served like this every morning!

I love when there are fresh blooms at each place setting!

This cake was served at the opening party. DELICIOUS!

With friends from, an online forum for Wedding Planners.
