I am proud to call these people my colleagues as well as my friends.
Carpenter listed the groups accomplishments with pride.
Many (members) have been published on wedding blogs and in national magazines, including Southern Living. There are award winning photographers and videographers. We have members who commonly speak to industry groups. Others have been voted to the Best of Weddings by their customers in The Knot. There are even vendors that have worked on movie sets as well as celebrity weddings. These are but a few of our accomplishments.
Every bride at the wedding show will be entered into a drawing for a chance to compete against three other brides in a game of wedding trivia, with the winner being awarded a set of his and her mini iPads.
The event venue, the Blacksmith Shop, originally was constructed in 1890 as the W.H. Schatzman Blacksmith Shop and Carriage Facility. Although the facility served a variety of purposes during the years, including as a parking deck, today it stands as a fully renovated and landscaped structure that serves as an event space for a variety of celebrations -- including weddings.
