3/28/11: The 21st Century Bride Event

One of the many blessings of being in the wedding world is meeting other Wedding Pros who share the same enthusiasm, commitment, and call to service. Today attended a brilliant networking conference hosted by The 21st Century Bride, offering encouragement, advice, and trend-tracking in the wedding universe. Here I am with my NYC wedding pals Rev. Will Mercer Wedding Officant & Margaret Sanzo Sneddon, Harpist. I refer to both of them with confidence! It was great to meet in person some of my on-line wedding connections from Twitter & Wedding Wire including Ian Lozado Photography, make new friends like Caitlin Boshnack, Event Planner, and Tweet with NJWedding.com & cyber pals! I was so delighted to meet Celebrant Kim Kirkley (NY) & Celebrant Diane Wilkerson (NJ). It gives me such comfort & confidence to be able to refer to warm, experienced, and kind officiants when I am unvailable, to share experience & stories, and support. Of the MANY presentations today, I particularly enjoyed warm & wonderful Dina Eisenberg of Positively Wed, website advice from Alan Berg, upbeat & energetic Anne Chertoff, from the blog I-Will-To-I-Do, hearing from Wedding Podcast Network, growing your business with Ken "Bosco" Rabasco, photography advice from Phil Cantor Photography, and amusement from "Celebrity Robot!" You can follow the Twitter Feed from @21CenturyBride with the tag #21CB. Thanks to all--have a great Wedding Season 2011! Warmly, Rev. Annie NYC
