I co-founded WeDo over a year a go with my partner, event designer Ara Farnam. It’s a members only wedding industry networking group, the only one of its kind in NYC. So when I tell potential clients that I can hook them up with amazing vendors, you know I mean it! I know everyone in this town in the event business. When you hire Kelly Guenther Studio to shoot your wedding I come with an entire network of amazing people at my fingertips. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming. Having solid referrals from vendors you can trust makes it so much easier. That’s why I started WeDo. I can’t believe how far we’ve come in a year! And that deserved a party!
No one knows how to party like those who throw parties for a living! Over 250 wedding industry insiders gathered to celebrate the 1yr Anniversary of WeDo. We started the party right away with a bar in the elevator serving bubbly. Guests were then given their first clue, a string of beads with a message encouraging them to make friends at the bar. The WeDo scavenger hunt had begun! Clues were sprinkled throughout the party that encouraged everyone to mix and mingle and eventually lead to The Golden Ticket and a spin at the prize wheel! Dimples Dakota played Vanna White cheering everyone on. Of course we didn’t let anyone leave empty handed, WeDo sunglasses for all! Three Sixty degrees was bathed in a sea of pink and orange thanks to Nice Uplights. Rountree Flowers dazzled all with the decor, The Booth kept everyone smiling (see photos from The Booth here password click) and bands The Engagements and 45 Riots kept us dancing all night long! Best cake (thanks Sugar Flower Cake Shop) and cake cutting ever thanks to Batala, an all girl drum line troupe, who surprised all of the guests and got everyone pumped and ready to party! WeDo has come a long way in just one year. Our events always attract the best of the NYC wedding industry not only in their skills but personality. WeDo members are fun, open people who get the value of meeting new people and growing their networks. We have lots planned for 2013 and hope you can join us! Click here to apply for membership.
