VIP Networking Event: Ashford Estate

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

In the midst of deadline, I took a couple of days to sneak away to New Jersey for our VIP Networking Event and Book Signing for my hardcover book: Grace Ormonde Weddings – “Being In Love Never Goes Out of Style.”

Upon arriving at the Ashford Estate I thought I was driving up to a scene from a movie. Once you turn the corner of the driveway and reach the iron gates with gold lions, it is simply breathtaking. The grounds were gorgeous and meticulous. After scooping them out and entering the estate, I could not believe the beautiful interiors. It felt more like a home rather than a huge mansion and the hospitality made it hard to leave.

The night was nothing short of fabulous and I would like to extend my warmest thank you to the talented professionals who created that lovely evening:

VIP Fashion Show: Roma Sposa

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Last Wednesday, March 31st, I had the pleasure of being a special guest of Anna Roselli, owner of Roma Sposa at their “Night of Wedding Style.”

Hosted at The Townsend Hotel in Birmingham, Michigan, the night consisted of a fashion show featuring American and European bridal gown and eveningwear designers, special guest and renowned couture designer Ines Di Santo, and another city stop on my book tour for Grace Ormonde Weddings – “being in love never goes out of style.”

It was such an amazing night; seeing the latest fashion always gets me excited. I was thrilled to see Anna again and also to have the chance to finally see her bridal salon in person, and as always, I was delighted to meet up with my friend Ines, especially when she is so busy preparing for bridal market in New York later this week.

Thank you to everyone who attended from throughout the state of Michigan, as well as those of you that drove in from Chicago. It was a pleasure to meet so many brides, see so many business colleagues and to be able to continue the tour here. A special thank you to Loudbyte Cinematography for filming and photographers Steve and Debi Ragland of Ragland Studios for photographing the event.
