What fun it was to co-host the Naples Chapter NAWP April meeting with the ever-talented Kevin Morris, owner of Botanicals on the Gulf, Jim Dalia of A DJ with Class and new NAWP member, Amber Phillips of Sage Events.

Every month Naples NAWP members get together for an evening of networking, great food and chapter business. This evening we had the honor of hosting the meeting at our space that we share with Kevin and Jim. And what really made everything come together was the absolutely delicious food that new member, Amber Phillips, owner of Sage Events, put together for our guests. What was on the menu? Mouth-watering seared ahi on crispy wonton, proscuitto wrapped scallops, chicken satay and seared beef on potato chips! But by far my favorite was Amber’s homemade cheesecake bites with oreo bread crumb and a bit of orange and lemon zest. Absolutely to die for!

Jim did some magnificent uplighting and really changed the look and feel of the space. Brides, take notice! A little uplighting can dramatically change your reception room and makes your photographer’s job easier! Take a look at some of the images of just how great our spaces looked with some uplighting, love that orange color on the light blue of the walls with the hot pink florals that Kevin put together.

Ah, flowers! Besides getting to work with two of the best in town, what more could you ask for than the beautiful aroma of fresh flowers in your office, ALL the time! That’s one major perk of sharing a space with the best florist in Naples! đŸ™‚

We were lucky enough to have some wonderful guests stop in for a visit. It was great to get to catch up with old friends and meet some new friends, too. If you are a Southwest Florida wedding professional and you haven’t joined NAWP……don’t wait any longer! It’s a wonderfully friendly bunch that are passionate about brides, grooms and the business of weddings in Florida.

Thanks so much to NAWP for letting us host this month!
