Asking up close and personal questions about how they became involved in the wedding industry and what motivates them.
What better way to start this monthly series than with the 10-year anniversary of the Wedding Co Show? Featuring Catherine Lash, Founder. Her ambition to always work in the interest of great vendors while producing a stellar show is dully noted. This exceptional bridal show takes place at Carlu downtown Toronto the second weekend of January each year. A must attend for all brides looking for the “Crème de la crème” in our industry. On top of a great show is an amazing website filled with inspiration. Be sure to check it out and say hello at the show. Hats off to Catherine for creating such an incredible show!
I can’t wait to hear my friend Grenville Pinto play the violin again. It was at Wedding Co. Show I first had the pleasure of meeting Grenville. A must listen as it will stop you in your tracks! My lead planner Jessica always does a happy dance when she hears him start to play.
