Around 200 wedding pros joined us at The Henry for a full day of education, networking and tons of brand building advice early this month.
The Knot Pro Detroit Workshop was unique for each attendee and geared toward helping them take their business to the next level. We learned about creating an authentic experience, communicating with couples and how your brand extends way more than your logo. It was an inspirational day that challenged everyone to go outside their comfort zones to help make our industry better!
The Event Planner, Inc. and Meldeen teamed up to bring everyone an Instagram-worthy experience. From the stage setup to the lunch table decor and the marble signage, we couldn't get enough. A few more of our favorites from the day included:
- The stunning floral designs (Delux Floral)
- The seamless headshot bar experience (Wilson Sarkis Photography)
- The sweet cotton candy treats during cocktail hour (Make Your Life Sweeter - Fluffpop)
Check out more of the amazing details from the day captured by the talented Visi Productions!
We heard from many talented industry experts and our local pros including Todd Everett (The Todd Everett Experience), William Leung (Heart + Soul), Jerome Raska (Blumz...by JRDesigns), Kristen Taylor (Kristen Taylor Photography) and Tifany Wunschl (Gourmet Invitations). Attendees also heard from industry experts on the following...Amy Shey Jacobs of Chandelier Events on How to Be Your Own PR Machine, Terrica Skaggs of Cocktails & Details on The Client Experience and Jove Meyer of Jove Meyer Events on Connecting with LGBTQ Couples. We left with a ton of notes from these presentations! A special thank you for everyone who shared with us. Plus, real couples from Detroit also shared their planning process on our Real Couples Panel!
A VERY special thank you to all our amazingly talented friends who made this day happen!
