Ode to Summer

September 15, 2014

We love you, Summer. You make the rest of the year possible by giving those in the event industry some much needed downtime. You also provide moments like those created by the ladies of Atrendy Events. Each year, the team surprises us with a remarkable soiree where we exchange summer stories, catch up on each other’s busy schedules and, best of all, relax + sip on deliciously crafted cocktails. This event is an industrywide favorite, and we couldn’t have had the experience we did without some remarkable vendors + the Atrendy Team! Thanks for making summer’s sunset seem a bit further out on the horizon!

Color the World

July 11, 2014

We are packing up and taking off to Germany and Argentina this week. As the two prepare to go head to head for the World Cup title, we figured we would dive deep into these gorgeous countries for a taste of what they really have to offer. Immersed in the culture, tradition and cuisine it looks like it’s going to be a tough matchup as to who we believe will reign supreme. Whether you prefer beer and brats or savory empanadas, you can’t go wrong with making Germany or Argentina the next stop on your jet setting bucket list. Break out those passports, it looks like either destination would be a winning goal!

I often get inquiries from new industry vendors, who are trying to break into the market, and who have a passion for weddings just like me!  Well, recently when I met Stephanie Olvey, the Founder of Fortique, a lightbulb went off — Fortique is the perfect platform for creative vendors just starting out in D.C.

Fortique is on a mission to create a transparent and effective marketplace to buy and sell local creative services.  Specifically targeting amateur and freelance service providers, Fortique provides a simple and powerful tool for local creatives to monetize skills and presents a cost-effective solution for consumers looking for assistance with interior design, event planning, personal styling, and more. Don’t you love this concept?!

Whether you are looking to be a vendor – or looking for a vendor – contact Stephanie!
