Networking online is great but nothing beats in person. That's why I look forward to attending NW Wed Pro Networking Events each month. They meet at a different wedding or event venue on the 2nd Wednesday of each month in the Portland Metro area with a focus on Clackamas County. Members AND non-members are welcome to attend. Portland's best caterers provide food for the event, dessert is often provided by some of the best cake and dessert companies around. There is almost always free wine. Guest speakers teach us everything we need to know to market our business effectively. It's also a great way to view each venue and meet it's coordinator or owner. With a wide variety of professionals attending each month, it offers opportunities to meet, network and partner up with photographers, caterers, florists, officiants, coordinators and planners, Cake and Cupcake companies, venues, DJ's, musicians, photo booth companies, rental companies.... you name it! For a list of upcoming events visit http://www.nwwpnetwork.com/Events.html . Current members are listed on the vendor site at http://www.nwwedpro.com/ .
Any wedding or event professional can attend the meetings. All that you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP. It's that easy. Members pay $10 to attend and non-members pay $20 (membership is only $100 per year) NW Wed Pro's also have the funnest End of Year Holiday Party! No high ticket prices to attend either. Each member contributes in some way to the event with their services or bringing a door prize. For the last 2 years the Holiday Party was held at The Tumwater Room in Oregon City overlooking the beautiful Willamette Falls. It's been a huge success and lots of fun with great food and desserts, music, dancing, games, photo booth, décor and LOTS of great prizes. Must be a member to attend the Holiday Party though. So, if you want to build your business, collaborate with others, get your name out there and have fun too, then NW Wed Pro is for YOU.
Wedding Season winding down
I just wanted to send you a little something before I forget. A simple thank you would never be enough to express my deepest regard to you for the beautiful ceremony you performed. So many of our guests commented on you and the words and just everything about the ceremony. For not knowing exactly what I wanted, you did exactly what I wanted. You got me and Kyle and captured it so beautifully in the ceremony. We are so happy you were the one to marry us! The "icing on the cake" was our small world moment from my mother's wedding and I just am so glad you were there. Thank you again for all your help, you truly made our day magical and there wasn't a dry eye in the house!!

Thank you Breezie and Kyle! It was my pleasure to perform your ceremony and coordinate the rehearsal. I loved the fact that I had attended your mother's wedding and now am performing yours. Very small world. It was so nice to see all of you girls all grown up into such beautiful women.
Wishing a wonderful marriage and life together.
Recently I was asked to perform a wedding on a Ferry in the middle of crossing the Willamette River. Yes! Of course I will. I love new and unique wedding ideas and locations.
It was a beautiful yet very HOT August day. Once we were out in the river the temperature felt much better and the breeze off the water was nice.
