We had the pleasure of hosting our first annual Gala at The Richmond in Toronto last week!
It was an incredible evening with our amazing members, gracious sponsors, industry influencers, families and friends!
I wanted to bring everyone together to celebrate all of the milestones that The Wedding Opera has accomplished over the last year.
Although we weren’t able to invite every single supporter we have online and off, I do know that without your continued support we would not be here today!
Many of you have told me how much you appreciate The Wedding Opera, and how grateful you are with to have a carefully curated space online to showcase your work and be inspired.
We work very hard to make sure that our core values are always kept in line, not only for the thousands of brides and grooms we reach each month but also for all of the wedding professionals who make this industry as incredible and exciting as it is today!
We also wanted to let everyone know some exciting news! The Wedding Opera has acquired The Business of Weddings!
The Business of Weddings is a live event – a yearly symposium for the Canadian Wedding Professional.
Not only will we continue with this yearly event, but we will give you a space to learn, to grow, to be inspired online – every day of the year!
This event would not have been possible without all of the dedicated and gracious sponsors who donated their time and resources!
Check it out below and our hashtag #twogala2015 to see more!
