The Bliss Wedding Fair Extraordinaire January 31st In Calgary
Highland’s first wedding show!! It all started with a phone call from Deanna Stroud from mommylicious, saying she had been passed our details from Angie from GMiB (thanks Angie) Deanna discussed the opportunity available for Highland as a sponsor for the Bliss Wedding Fair 31st Jan 2011 @ the Carriage House Inn in Calgary, I must admit we were a little hesitant at doing something this big as it would be our first time in this role. But Deanna can be very supportive and sold the event to us (so grateful you did Deanna thank you) to be honest we’re Chauffeur’s and have zero experience with participating in events. At the same time Lynn Fletcher of multi award winning Lynn Fletcher Weddings invited me to a ISES meeting which was simply such an eye opening experience thank you for the opportunity to witness Andrea Michaels speaking to the Calgary Chapter. And when I told Lynn about being in the wedding fair, she instantly told me not to worry about a thing, and her team would be happy to help this is the same week that Lynn would be in Phoenix winning the @ TSE 2011 Gala Award’s! The team members were Julie Pelley and her (Mum) Mrs Pelley and Afton, who turned up on a freezing cold Sunday @ 06:00 in the morning to set up our showcase booth! Leo Nugteren from Willow Haven flowers @ 5 mins notice on a Friday evening gave us beautiful and expensive flowers for the Bentley (Dorothy) to be decorated at the show! John and Belinda Spear from Le Chocolatier gave us a huge Chocolate truffle basket worth $100 for our Ballot Winner, and 3 hole boxes of truffles that all the vendors got a chance to taste. So as the say the Show was on! To top things off we were on the Radio and were videoed @ the show in an interview how awesome! I was honoured to meet little Mattea Lynn’s daughter who chats away with the best of them so sweet! Lynn was down to check out the event and it was such an honour to see her after such a busy week for her company! Awesome! We would like to thank everyone that made it to the event in a cold Sunday to see our services and all the services available!
Deanna and Hali, pulled off an intimate experience for the bride and groom’s to be for Calgary and surrounding area’s great show! Zen Media is pretty awesome for all the website work and hard work on the day! I honestly feel that having time to share our personal chauffeuring style with Calgary Clients and Vendors was such an amazing opportunity for Highland Executive Chauffeur! It was so amazing meeting other passionate vendor’s great day for networking, fantastic to meet you all. The food @ the end of the show was such a thoughtful touch by Deanna & Hali for the vendors and workers on the day I loved that. I would like to Thank Everyone involved that helped Highland Achieve our First Wedding Show ever: Deanna and Hali of Mommylicious, Lynn, Julie and her mum and Afton from Lynn Fletcher Weddings, Jesse from Free Style Designs, Dave and Murray from Airdrie Trailers, Leo and family and team from Willow Haven Flowers, John and Belinda from Le Chocolatier. Thank you and we couldn’t have made this happen without any of you! Thank you for believing in Highland Executive Chauffeur!!!
Thanks Julie for coming back to help with the break down I owe you one.
