Southern Weddings Magazine Launch Party - The People

One of my goals for 2008 was to increase my network with other weddings professionals, not just Nashville but to extend to other areas.

The Southern Weddings Launch Party was the greatest place for networking with other fabulous professionals, not to mention many of us keep in contact on a daily basis!! I shared how swanky the venue & decor was, well the people were so stylish & chic! The event was well attended and not just from Atlanta professionals, even though they were definitely in the house, but also Tennessee, Florida & many other states!

Hi Latrice,
