Winter Wedding Events in New York

In the wedding industry, engagement season means wedding pros gets a bit of a break from planning events and have a chance to get together for networking, exchanging ideas, sharing wedding industry news and of course, letting loose!

During one week in New York, we got to network for good at Wish Upon a Wedding Bene-Fete, work with our client Bows-N-Ties at the Martha Stewart Weddings Show, and meet pros of the travel industry at the New York Times Travel Show.

Here are a few highlights:

Our week started with a bang when we attended Wish Upon a Wedding Bene-Fete, a fundraiser gala for this incredible national organization that grants weddings and vow renewals to couples facing terminal illness. The gala was hosted at The High Line Hotel’s impressive church ballroom, where we saw many of our industry friends, including Nadia D Photography, The Knot, How He Asked et al:

Martha Stewart Weddings and The Wedding Library invited Bows-N-Ties to fly to their annual New York wedding show to present its 2015 line of wedding ties and bow ties in the Grooms’ Corner. The sold-out show saw 1200 attendees at the gorgeous Gotham Hall and attending brides got a discount code to use toward their wedding.
