WIPA – Not Just Another Networking Event

We’ve been in the Atlanta Wedding Industry for over ten years and it is always a pleasure to mix and mingle with other industry professionals. On January 10, 2013 we had the opportunity to attend our first WIPA meeting. WIPA is s a non-profit association that is run by its esteemed members.  They understand what it takes to produce a wedding since we represent the multitude of wedding disciplines: cake designers, caterers, DJ’s, florists, entertainment companies, hoteliers, invitation companies, musicians, officiants, photographers, rental companies, wedding planners, venues, videographers and many more. Lindsay Pitt of TOAST® Events is the Atlanta Regional Director and invited us to sponsor the stationery for this awesome event.

It was indeed not just another networking event in Atlanta. The meeting was held at The Estate, A Legendary Event’s latest venue addition and it was nothing short of fabulous. Many industry professionals attending this event rarely leave their offices to network so it was an honor to be in the midst of such an esteemed group of individuals. Most intriguing was the amazing, Calder Clark of Calder Clark Designs, who was the guest speaker. She really inspired us to create events that are innovative and filled with all the characteristics of our clients. Calder’s designs are incredible and she is “killing the game” in Charleston. I can’t wait to go visit her!

Jeremy Harwell of Harwell Photography captured every detail. Here are a few photos from the event.

Great spending time with our friends Gabrielle and Clay of Edge Design Group.

It is WIPA’s mission to advance the wedding profession, enhance the professional growth of members, uphold the highest ethics, and educate the public about WIPA-qualified specialists.

I believe WIPA will indeed be the most respected national community for wedding professionals who want to be recognized as masters and innovators.

Atlanta, the bar has been raised!
