October 2019 TVWP Meeting Recap

October 2019 TVWP Meeting Recap

In closing out our event filled year, we held the last meeting of 2019 at the Embassy Suites venue in the heart of Temecula. This wedding & reception facility was the perfect location to bring a room full of area wedding professionals together.

Not only is Embassy Suites a full service venue, they are also home to one of the easy starting points for those couples looking for a central location in-which to bring family & friends to enjoy the Temecula Valley.

TVWP Meetings are just not about visiting locations, in which is a great benefit of having meetings in different locations throughout the year, but also the bringing of some of the great local talent to share their insights and wedding wisdom with the group. This month we welcomes Bethel Nathan, of Ceremonies by Bethel. She is a fanatic speaker and presenter with numerous insights of how wedding professionals can & should be more proficient in organizing & executing business related processes to result in the delivery of better, more targeted services to our wedding couples. I know that’s a mouth full, but the take-away is that wedding vendors have one chance to do the job that they are hired to do correctly, so why not use some of the tools out there to make it easier to reach more parties and deliver consistently, spot-on results.

Bethel, who also provides SMB coaching services under the umbrella of Elevate by Bethel, is just one of the many insightful and creative professionals that we plan on adding to our 2020 guest speaker rolls. These ‘sharing of your knowledge’ opportunities are pure-gold to both beginner vendors, but also to those who have worked the Valley for awhile.

It doesn’t go with our noting that many other vendors contributed their time & talents to make this meeting such a visual & flavorful evening. As the imagery by Bob Hoffman Photography shows, we went with a soft white palette in the draping by A Better Party, the Linens by Luxe Linens, this accent was to show-off the already present blue hues inside the room. Our direction with the florals’ was to bring in some pop by Sweet Stems Florist.
