On Wednesday, November 17, 2010 I had the pleasure of attending the Blissful Wishes Ball supporting Wish upon a Wedding’s Washington DC/MD/VA Chapter. As an event committee member I was privy to some behind the scenes details as we prepared for the big night. I can say that it was lovely to enjoy an evening of charity, entertainment and fun. I certainly enjoyed everything from the venue, Tremont Grand in Baltimore, MD to our celebrity musician, Mr. Art Sherrod and all the wonderful wedding and event industry leaders that were in attendance.
We started the night off in the Roman Strada room with cocktails and the silent auction. We later moved to the Corinthian Room for the reception. There we enjoyed a lovely dinner, a sweet serenade by celebrity jazz saxophonist, Mr. Art Sherrod. While Mr. Sherrod blew old jazz and R&B melodies we were delighted to be entertained by Event Planner, Stephanie Courtney’s professional ballroom troupe. After dinner, we enjoyed a wonderful array of Cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes as our wonderful chapter President, Ms. Shelby Tuck-Horton presented Ms. Julie Brown-Edwards, Catering Director for the Tremont Grand, with the Chapter’s first Shining Star Award.
We spent the remainder of the evening mingling with industry colleagues, dancing and maybe having a little too much fun in the photo booth by Shutter Booth. With props in hand the event committee members piled in the booth several times to capture the fun had by all. Even the Style Network’s, “Whose Wedding Is It Anyway” feature coordinator, Mark Kingsdorf was in attendance. When all was said and done, the Blissful Wishes Ball & auction was a success and I want to congratulate all of the hard working women who made it possible.
