This past Tuesday I made a trip out to San Diego to attended Ceremony Magazine’s party at Rancho Valencia in Rancho Sante Fe! On my way to the event, I stopped to say “hi” to my friends at La Costa Resort and Spa where I introduced them to the video books (www. Myvideomyvoice) and will be partnering with their marketing department to increase visibility of the amazing resort via the a custom video book. After my lovely meeting, I was off to Rancho Valencia Resort for Ceremony’s Magazine’s annual event. It was a truly beautiful setting and the resort has a small quaint feel. Amongst the featured vendors at the event were Raj Tents, Lounge Appeal, and The Wayne Foster Band! We sipped yummy martinis and enjoyed delicious treats by a few different catering companies including The Abbey! I played catch up with one of my favorite catering managers, Paige Levy of The Grand Del Mar, who is going to get a custom video book to feature their resort! I also had a great conversation with Jason Taylor of Taylor films and he’s going to become a distributor of the book. All great news and we’re thrilled the video books are taking off!

Below is a picture of myself with my event manager Constance Curtis along with Vanessa of Lollipop Events.

Much Gratitude,

This past Sunday I was invited by Mindy to attend and speak at "The Most Ridiculous Wedding Event Ever", by Mindy Weiss, where I introduced MyVideoMyVoice to other leading industry vendors and many brides to be! The event was held at The Mark in Los Angeles, CA. There were many other vendors who spoke as well including, Inside Weddings, Images by Lighting, Cake Divas, Elizabeth Messina, Jay Goldman Photography and many more. I was extremely impressed with Amy Atlas's dessert tables! Amy flew all the way in from NY to show us her treats.. and what a treat it was! I was very pleased with the popular reaction of MyVideoMyVoice. From save the dates to guest books, many ideas were swarming the air! Below are pictures from the event!

Much Gratitude,

My partnership over the past month with AmeriChip has been extremely exciting and I had the honor of speaking about the new video memory books two Sundays ago at the Bloomingdales in Century City, CA. The event was a success and there was so much interest of the video memory books… everyone is thrilled and cant wait to start purchasing! Bloomingdales even asked that I give them my wands to display at their bridal registry department…. Thanks KCee J I also enjoyed catching up with old vendors and meeting new, especially Jorge Perez from Waterford Crystal. Enjoy the pictures below and hopefully I’ll see you at my next speaking event. Enjoy the pictures below!
