I’ve been a very busy girl lately.  I’m not complaining since I had the opportunity to attend the professional wedding symposium in The Grand Cayman.  Engage 09′ was produced by principal and founder Rebecca Grinnals.   Three days filled with education, networking and Fun! If you know me, I’m a big fan of sand and sun!  The week was incredible. I connected with my fellow bloggers  and now can put the face to their name!  Planner extraordinaire{Michelle Rago} produced the opening party on the beach.  The scenery, the decor and the food were just perfect.  Of course the highlight was meeting the Florist Guru Mr. Preston Bailey! I also excited to connect with motivational speaker Simon Bailey, author of ‘Releasing your Brilliant’.  He is simply Brilliant!  I would highly recommend picking up his book. The girls from {Southern Weddings magazine}, Laura Casey and Kirstin Hawley were super cool and great to hang out with.  Abby Larson from {Style me pretty} is even more gracious in person. Marci Miller, Sylvia Weinstock, Randy Fenoli and Bee Kim were  among some of the speakers.  I also had an awesome time having dinner with Carley Roney from the Knot.  What a great gal!  Can not wait for Engage 10!  A huge Thank you to Rebecca Grinnals and Kathryn Arce for a successful Conference!   You ladies outdid yourself.  Congratulations!
