shine :: Event Education and Professional Development Conference

Calling all Wedding and Event Pros!  It’s time to shine !

I’ve been working on this project for a few months and now it’s time to share the news!  The shine event is an educational and professional development conference for ABC members as well as all creative professionals serving the wedding and event industry.



Prologue: I established myself as an independent event planner and bridal consultant more than a dozen years ago. While my title and credentials have gradually changed and evolved over the years, the fact that I am an entrepreneur does not change. I can label myself Planner, Designer, Consultant, or Specialist; I can throw in CEO, Owner or Founder… But the only thing that truly matters is this: I am the business owner, and I am responsible for my successes as well as my failures.

 am an entrepreneurI don’t know about you, but I don’t like to fail. And yet, I entered business without knowing how to be successful as entrepreneur.

Did I make mistakes?  – Yes I did.

Did I waste time and money? – Absolutely.

Did I learn from my mistakes? – You bet!

And that is the key:  Learning (education).  As an entrepreneur, learning is not optional.  You must learn, or your business will not survive.  You must find inspiration or you will burn out.  You must adapt and try new things or you will become irrelevant.

I love my job.  But entrepreneurship fascinates me!  Entrepreneurs are some of the most intelligent, resourceful and creative people I’ve ever met.  I have learned so much from my event industry colleagues I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to help educate and inspire others by organizing the shine event.

The Association of Bridal Consultants – Florida has put together an incredible conference: {shine} is a professional development conference featuring superb educational sessions presented by experts & leaders in our Industry and and beyond! Get a jump on your FALL 2014 EVENTS by squeezing 6 months worth of meetings into 2 turbo-charged days of inspiration, motivation, and networking!

A fashion forward quinceanera designed to captivate the attention and imagination of the young adults as well as the young at heart!  “CLAUDIA” represents another signature event created by the awarding winning team: Eddie Diaz, CSEP and Elisa Delgardio, CSEP.


I’m not even sure where to begin, except to say that we are so proud of this Orlando Quince event! It was both a thrill and a joy to plan! Our Clients were wonderful & gracious people; Eddie and I had a ball working with them! From the invitations to the gelato flavors, everything about this event was fierce – and custom tailored to our super chic fashionista, Claudia. ~ Elisa

The inspiration for this Quince event was fashion – so we designed a chic room that featured double runways and two stages. Fuchsia was the key color, so the palette included shades of pink, black and white.

We threw in lots of sparkle, and accented the room decor with gobos and wall washes. The client’s monogram was a play on the Channel logo.

Lady Gaga: The ultimate fashionista! Our high-energy performer was instrumental in setting the mood for the evening and introducing the birthday girl. Later in the evening, the performers danced with the guests and posed for photos.
