ABC Annual Conference 2008- Day 3 -November 11th, 2008

After the Master’s Breakfast, we had breakout sessions to attend from Practice Makes Perfect Wedding Rehearsals to Exploring Opportunities with corporate members. The best part of Tuesday was the lunch and the speaker. Colin Cowie was the speaker for the lunch and we got the opportunity to hear his presentation on how he designs and manages his events. We were treated to a slideshow of the before and after pictures of his events along with renderings with the clients to the finished products. ABC conference attendees also had the opportunity to bid on a chance to shadow Colin for the day on one of his events. The bidding ended at $ 10,000 dollars and 13 ABC consultants jumped at the opportunity and the money that Colin raised was donated back to ABC for the Miss Dorothy Scholarship Fund. The luncheon decor was amazing and we have included many pictures below of the luncheon decor along with pictures of Colin Cowie speaking as close as we could get to him. We do have one picture that is most special to us we have included first. The Special Moments team ( Tammy, Erin and Krissy) with Colin Cowie as he signed our books for us. The gallery will follow after the Special Picture.


The linens for the luncheon were supplied by Wildflower Linens the favors were supplied by Kate Aspen and the florals were supplied by 3 different floral companies- Three Petals, Elegant By Design and Mille Fiori . The menus and programs were supplied by Ink Invitations .The signature cakes that were designed for the luncheon were unique in themselves and we have also included pictures of all of the cakes that were designed by The Cake Studio . We were totally impressed and already have ideas to share with all of our Special Moments Brides on decor , menu cards, table numbers, etc… Enjoy:
