Hey folks! So, today was my second Chippewa Valley Wedding Professionals meeting at Unity Christ Center in Eau Claire, WI, and to top it off I also happened to be the photographer for this month’s meeting. For those of you unfamiliar with what CVWP is, I will just share the mission statement straight from the website:
The mission of the CVWP group is to unite wedding and event professionals in the Chippewa Valley and beyond through providing a positive, supportive, and inviting environment that fosters relationship building and showcases the creative talents of attendees through sponsorships and donations.
The goals of our group are simple:
1. Establish relationships with other wedding & event professionals
2. Increase awareness of attendees’ company, products and/or services
3. Receive & provide qualified referrals
4.Educate others about products and/or services through group presentations
5. Learn about new products and/or services in the wedding & event industry
Today’s meeting featured the following vendors from the Chippewa Valley area, and represented a small portion of very talented area professionals.
Chippewa Valley Wedding Professionals, Eau Claire, WI
Eventful Occasions, LLC., Eau Claire, WI
Unity Christ Center, Eau Claire, WI
KB Catering, Independence, WI
Floral Arrangements & Artistry:
Avalon Floral, Eau Claire, WI
Linens & Runner:
Frolicking Strings, Eau Claire, WI
Midwest Entertainment, Eau Claire, WI
Bridal Hair Styles:
Urban Style Hair Salon, Eau Claire, WI
And of course, yours truly as photographer for the day. The highlights for me today were definitely the bridal dresses from Bella Nozze and the floral bouquets from Avalon. They were GORGEOUS. I was totally in awe. One of the floral designs reminded me of a birds nest, it was just so delicate looking and beautiful. The dresses were to die for, and incredibly unique. If you’re an area professional with a business to promote, I would highly suggest making one of the meetings, you learn a lot about local businesses that you weren’t aware of before, and there are tons of networking opportunities. Oh, and I also won a fabulous cookbook from the door prize drawing that I am dying to use! I’m not going to give you too much info though, if you want to know more, you’ll just have to come to June’s meeting! I’ll be there, and I would love to see your bright & shining face.
