Happy Friday to me!! Why, you ask? Well, in just a few days, I’ll be heading off to the Cayman Islands to spend a few days in paradise at Engage!11! For those of you unfamiliar with the Engage events, they are twice yearly luxury wedding business summits where some of the most exciting people in the industry come together to learn and grow. I believe this will be only the second conference Lara has missed, and while I will miss having her by my side, I’m excited to represent the South in her stead! (She does have a pretty good reason for not attending, don’t you think?) You can read a little more about my first trip to an Engage! conference here, here, and here.
Now, would it be bad to say I’m almost as excited about our surroundings as the people I’ll meet? Feast your eyes on this:
Gorgeous!! Okay, okay, I’m also excited about the speakers. A brief rundown: Barbara Corcoran (Shark Tank lady!! John and I love that show!), Bryan Rafanelli (loved him at Engage!10!), Darcy Miller of Martha Stewart Weddings, the one and only Randy Fenoli, event designer Michelle Rago, and inspirational and oh-so-kind David Beahm. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! I’m also incredibly excited to meet my roommates Emily Ley and Whitney English Kolb!
Y’all KNOW I’ll be back after the festivities wrap up to tell you all about it, and I’ll of course be tweeting along the way. In the meantime, I’d love to know who I should keep an eye out for while on the beach — if you’re attending Engage, leave a comment below! I’d love to say howdy! :)
