Networking Extravaganza!!

The last month has been super busy here at Casa Ybel in our wedding department. Aside from being in our busiest season of the year (Fall is just STUNNING down here), we have been out and about, networking with the industries finest at many events. We are so lucky to have been able to attend some of these great events, made some phenomenal contacts, and even had some fun along the way.

The month started with a fabulous event in downtown Miami, at the amazing Epic Hotel.

This event was hosted by our friends at The Knot, and was certainly worth the trip. The hotel, food, decor, and connections made were wonderful! A sincere thanks to The Knot from our team here at Casa Ybel for hosting such a great night for wedding pros. I have included some pictures for you to enjoy!!

The "Sad Bride" I think she just needs a good planner

The Fabulous Manolo Doreste from In Focus Studios in Miami took updated Facebook/Twitter pics for the pros!

Here is my shot! Thanks Manolo!
The Ballroom
Sooo beautiful

Decorated perfectly

Two Different Types of Go go Dancers kept the dance floor alive! They had Ice Goddesses and Jesters.

AMAZING dessert bar. Tasty and a feast for the eyes.

As you can see, this event was wonderful for all involved, and we are greatly looking forward to the next Knot party.

The following week, we were in attendance at another fabulous networking event, this time in Tampa. Brides, FL. hosted a gorgeous cocktail party for the Florida pros, and we had a blast. I should be receiving pictures of this event soon, and will share then when I do! It was equally stunning, and enjoyable, so I cannot wait to share it with you all!
Next up: The Grand Proposal Party with Kelly McWilliams of Weddings By Socialites, hosted at the Sidney and Berne Davis Arts Center. This whole production will be just incredible, and we are excited to be attending. I will be posting all about this event as well! Check it out...the wedding could be yours!!

Check back soon for more networking event updates!
