The Art Ovation Hotel and The Knot hosted an Educational & Networking event earlier this month. Theresa & Nicole of Theresa Nicole Events succeeded in creating a fun and welcoming atmosphere for the Wedding Industry local professionals. 

The event exuded a modern and chic feel. As the guests walked through the Art Ovation Hotel they enjoyed the breathtaking art and listened to Bill Buchman’s Art of Jazz, a local jazz band.

Tom Chelednik of The Knot educated guests on all things business: from the latest wedding trends, to personalized ways to make meaningful connections and what you can do to book more business.

The network portion has held in the main ballroom, decorated by MMD events. The decor was bold and elegant, with white furniture and bright accent colors throughout the room. Every area of the ballroom featured a local live artist showcasing their work. It was such a great experience to be able to see their work come alive throughout the night.

We enjoyed the night with lots of great people, music provided by Grant Hemond And Associates, Inc., tasty and colorful foods and desserts of Art Ovation Hotel and we learned a little more about the ever changing wedding industry.

To top it all off, we ended the night enjoying a beautiful Sarasota sunset on the rooftop { what a treat! }.

I don’t think we could have asked for more! Thank you to everyone who made this event a huge success. You make us all proud!
