    An Honor to be Nominated

    Sometimes the phrase seems trite, but this time, it rings true.  It was truly a pleasure to be nominated and selected as a Finalist for the 2013 Event Solutions Spotlight Awards – Rising Star, Female category

    Two years ago, the Catersource organization began its partnership with Event Solutions in creating one giant event industry conference of 6500+ attendees including caterers, special event planners, and event designers.  And the 2013 Event Solutions Spotlight Awards and ICA Catie Awards did not disappoint!  Well, maybe a little since I didn’t win, but the competition was fierce with a multitude of talent within each category pool. 

    One of my fellow nominees, Ying Ling of Weddings by Ling, traveled over 6,000 miles from Beijing, China to attend the event and other guests and nominees made the trek from Malaysia, Europe, and South America (just to name a few!) 

    Eddie Diaz of Encore Creations created a stunning “avant-garde cabaret experience” that dazzled VIPs and attendees the moment they walked through the door with vibrant red drape and ornate designs of a sensual burlesque era. 

    David Tutera of My Fair Wedding and Dina Manzo of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Designer Affair were special guests and Colin Cowie was inducted into the Event Solutions Hall of Fame. 

    Is that Alan from the Hangover?  What a Vegas sighting! 

    What an incredible time in Vegas, and what an incredible group of talent!

    Till next time,
