Artvesta Wine & Cake Event 0414-48

This time my Wine & Cake Tasting Event was bigger and better than any of the previous ones. Ten wonderful event professionals and close to forty brides-to-be and event planners came in to share their expertise, showcase their recent work, discuss challenges that couples face when planning their wedding.

As you may agree, the event features one event professional per category to make the event more personal and educational rather than commercial and overwhelming.

Penny & Mary event planning company interviewed me for their website. I had so much to say, but it’s funny how standing in front of a camera made all my thoughts go blank. I had to make an extra effort to focus!

– A mini engagement or portrait photo-session from Tatiana Valerie, Artvesta Photography
