The Venue: 

Truly one of the most lovely industrial-chic, historical building - turned natural light filled event spaces in Dallas, Hickory Street Annex!

 

The Food: 

We're so excited to see what Chef Jolie of Low Country Cuisine prepares for us!  One thing is for sure, come hungry, it's going to be delicious!

 

The Expert: 

Mary Swaffield, founder of Wedprenuer and Smitten Events is no "newbie" to the wedding world.  With almost 10 years of experience in the event industry, two businesses, her position as Vice Chair of Operations and Corporate Governance with ILEA Canada and certifications such as her CSEP, WPIC among other awards, Mary is just the person to sit down for a real chat with us about managing client expectations.

Whether you're frustrating with clients demanding more than they paid for, ignoring contracts, abusing office hours, or just feel plain burnt out, Mary will teach us some helpful methods about managing our time and client expectations with grace.
