Engage! really is THE BEST WEDDING CONFERENCE EVER!
I’m back in the office after a few days spent in Asheville, NC, at the legendary Biltmore Estate for engage! 13 – the luxury wedding business summit. As a first-timer to this event, I wasn’t sure of what to expect (even my local wedding pro friends who had attended didn’t reveal too much other than “You will have THE BEST time!”).
I’d followed the social media buzz surrounding the event for some time (the first summit was 5 years ago), so I knew it was going to be great, but after experiencing it myself, I can attest that this event is personally and professionally life-changing! I was in heaven in the magical setting of the Biltmore Estate (and SO proud of NC, as attendees from NYC to Dubai commented on how amazingly beautiful our state is!), further enchanted by the gorgeous event spaces that the Biltmore and engage! teams created for each occasion – from the daytime presentations to the nighttime soirees (the finale Gatsby Gala is a night I will never forget!). I was more than impressed by the genius branding that was carried across every last detail, inspired and touched by the presentations by the crème de la crème of wedding icons and experts who not only shared their stories, business tips and trends – but really kept it real and showed us a glance into their very souls!
Thank you to Rebecca and Kathryn – the amazing team behind engage! 13, to the Biltmore Estate for hosting, and to all of the speakers and sponsors who created this amazing experience and place for ideas to be exchanged and organic inspiration to grow! The wedding industry continues to push the envelope because of this event.
We’ll share more of the professional photo and video footage that documented the summit, but in the meantime, here is a collage of some of my Instagram trail from the week!
