2019 Vendi Award Winners Highlight

Happy Spring Wedding Season to all our planners and vendors alike!


As we head into the busy season of Spring weddings, we want to say a big thank you to everyone who contributes to creating a successful wedding night for all of our couples. We are privileged to work with the best in the industry weekend after weekend. And that is why every February we honor these wonderful partners with a night of fabulous food, drink, networking, and entertainment.

This year's Vendi Awards stretched our creative muscles and challenged our sponsors in great ways to create a unique and magical night for all. We have many amazing sponsors to thank for their help (please check out the previous blog for their details). And we also want to extend our gratitude to the hardworking vendor partners who support our planners every year and who are the reason for this festive night.


To all the vendors who were nominated this year, and to all those who were not but who were also instrumental in our daily work you are certainly not forgotten: THANK YOU! Whether or not you took home a big award this year, your tireless work is appreciated and valued among all of our planners. We are honored you recommend us to your clients and we are happy to be your industry partners and friends.

For all of our planners, as we enter the busy Spring and Summer seasons and look forward to the Fall, say thank you to those who have done an amazing job for your clients and remember them for the 2020 Vendi Awards!


And a big thank you also to F8 Studios for capturing this gorgeous event. Take a look at the photos here, on the previous blog, and on our Facebook page!
