413 On Wacouta Event Center in St. Paul hosted our April 8th, 2010 Twin City Wedding Professional Event. Showcasing an incredible brand-new ceremony suite, along with their bridal VIP room and spacious reception area in the lower level makes this a grand, romantic ceremony and reception venue. Twin City Trolleys provided a courtesy shuttle for ease of parking for this event. Desserts were incredible and provided courtesy from several vendors in the area: Queen of Cakes, Three Sons Signature Cuisine, Buttercreme Cakes, Deco Catering, Bread Art and Cossetta Eventi. Live Music filled the air by Harpist Serena O’Meara and Pianist for Parties, Sharon Planer. Linens provided by Midway Party Rental. A Thank You Floral Bouquet was provided to our host by Sweetpeas Floral. Photography by: Joy Augeson Photography and Delight Photography. 413 On Wacouta provided champagne toasts Celebrating Twin Cities Wedding Professionals One Year Anniversary. We started these events a year ago, as a small group of 6 to 8 people. Every month increasing in attendence. 90+ people attended our event at 413 On Wacouta. Our goal is for wedding professionals to network and meet one or two vendors at each event in which they can build meaningful relationships so they can refer clients/wedding couples to each other. Being aware of the power of asking what the bride & groom may still be looking for in planning their day — opens the door of endless referrals within the group. Example: If a wedding photographer is talking to a bride and can ask what else she may be looking for in planning her wedding day. This photographer can confidently refer vendors for dj service, videography, cake, transportation and much more. All the while establishing themselves as a connected wedding professional in the area.
