This past Tuesday, my good friend Michael Coombs, hosted the second edition of The Business of Weddings symposium. There was a stellar line up of speakers from some of the most influential people in the industry sharing their experiences and advice on the future of the wedding industry.

It was a fun filled day with some old friends and making some new friends. Much respect to the presenters who kept things real and inspiring us all.

Lastly, thank you Michael Coombs for putting this together for our industry.  Hope to see you at the next one !
