Yesterday we held a Mexico Wedding Specialist Certification event for our WPIC Alumni at the beautiful Vaughan Estate at the Estates of Sunnybrook, in Toronto. Petar Valkov, of Bicoastal Images captured the day for us beautifully!
Attendees were greeted with a shot of tequila in “Mexico” branded glasses colored and displayed in the colors of the Mexican Flag.
and huge buffet of Mexican food and passed Mexican appetizers.
All 70 attendees enjoyed networking and getting the chance to speak one on one with select travel partners and destination wedding vendors.
There were two over-the-top Mexican-inspired wedding set-ups for them to view (sorry no photos as they are being submitted to Magazines).
The attendees went into the main room where there was a 10 foot by 8 foot step and repeat sign showing photos of weddings throughout Mexico, showcasing the many different styles of weddings available in Mexico. Most attendees had their photo taken in front of the sign.
We contracted Craig from Designing Trendz to provide us with a flower arrangement for the stage area. He surprised us with these gorgeous floral wedding dress mannequins! We just love his creativity.
We then started our program for the day.
Our program opened with a video from the owners Bicoastal Images, Jennifer and Manuel Salazar, speaking live from their patio on the beach in Cancun.
We then adjourned for Churros, Mexican Wedding Cookies, a Mexican-inspired wedding cake complete with Mexican tiles on it, Cafe de Olla and Chocolate Caliente.
Then all attendees went back to listen to Rodrigo Esponda, of the Mexico Tourism office in Toronto, present on Mexico Weddings. He was fantastic!!! He really described each of the top areas for weddings and made everyone very excited to plan weddings there.
We are so pleased with how this event turned out! Jennifer Prince, WPICC, of Estates of Sunnybrook, was an absolute dream to work with.
We invaded the mansion and took over every inch. Anything we asked for or about was done, no problem. We even gave them recipe for Cafe de Olla and Chocolate Caliente which they reproduced beautifully (and deliciously). Rinouldo the Maitre D’ of Vaughan Estates was wonderful and so helpful, thoughtful and attentive. We absolutely love doing events and weddings at the Estates of Sunnybrook.
