February 2020 Meeting Recap

February 2020 Meeting Recap

The wedding professionals in the Temecula Valley kicked of the 2020 season in high fashion on Feb. 4th at Avensole Winery as we welcomed a room full of wedding professionals and guests.

It goes without saying that this wedding season in the Temecula area is shaping up to be right up there with past seasons. The buzz in the room was palatable as many longtime members and a strong throng of guests came to see how TVWP could help to build their wedding & event business’.

What did they come away with?
– A great, easy to understand presentation by Valerie McCartney on using Facebook to identify potential groups of engaged couples who could use their services or products. Valarie, who teaches a course termed, Wedding Ads That Work, gave many ‘golden’ insights into how to organize a campaign and how to leverage her tips to achieve efficient result that will build a business’ penetration into this elusive group by using social tools specifically Facebook & Instagram.

Avensole under the direct of Jessica Kipper as always presented the attendees with a ballroom decked out with the trending colors that allowed this venue indoor facility to pop. But she was not alone; Rustic Events provided many of their new tables which were draped with linens provided by BBJ, with florals by Moxie Events, with Debra at Paperdoll Invitations providing the menu cards. And for dinner and desserts, well the folks at Vineyard Gourmet Catering provided a fantastic stations-oriented menu in which Wicked Cool Desserts & Espresso Chauffeur topped off at the end. TVWP meetings are always opportunities for great cuisine experiences!

I’d be re-missed if we didn’t mention the help of Jeremy of DJPros and his help in providing the sound and lighting for the night.

We’re off Fazeli Cellars Winery on March 3rd as we continue our tradition of bringing the very best wedding professionals together again for another great evening of connecting vendors with each other. March is going to be a treat as we welcome Bethel Nathan of Elevate by Bethel back to educate us on what the 2020+ Couples are looking for.
