We're still winding down from The American Association of Certified Wedding Planners 2017 Vendi Awards, the 10th anniversary of the event.  It's safe to say this event gets bigger and better every year!  This year with Emily Gromacki of Bella Flora as AACWP's Vendor Relations Chair, the event went off without a hitch after a busy year of planning and prepping for an incredible night!

We would love to hear what you thought!  Share with us some of your favorite moments from the night in the comments!
