HOTT ABC Wedding Planners’ Conference 2010, Phoenix AZ

Where do wedding planners go to rejuvenate their creative batteries? They go to the best educational showcase and networking platform, that's where! Presented by the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) and held at the luxurious Arizona Grand Resort from November 7-9, 2010 in Phoenix, AZ, hosted by the President of ABC, David Wood. The theme of the conference was HOTT (High Octane Twenty Ten) and we had a fantastic time getting to mingle with top bridal consultants, this conference really had it all. All the attendees were given the royal treatment!

Highlighting the event were coveted featured wedding industry planning titans, David Tutera, and Sasha Souza who both shared details about their wedding planning processes and pictorial presentations of some of their recent wedding planning. It was truly inspiring!

Being able to spend time with Sasha Souza who has been a Bridal Consultant since 1995 and is considered among the top event designers in the nation was awesome. She did an amazing presentation on the evolution of design and displayed a presentation of her remarkable work.

Also on hand, was the guest of honor, the very approchable David Tutera who host the popular show My Fair Wedding on te WE channel. It was a great privilege to hear about his first hand experience as a celebrity wedding designer and how he has successfully expanded his business in so many other ways. From wedding gowns to jewlery collection, he has become a true icon of the industry and just feeding off his energy was inspirational. With his cheerful persona and amazing vigor for everything wedding, it's no surprise that he is such a success.

As you can see in the below pictures the event was first class and we came back with some great ideas from some of the best minds in the industry.
