PWG Meet-up at Classic Event + Tent Rentals {Casual Networking}

On the morning of April 21st, The Perfect Wedding Guide Team headed over to Classic Event + Tent Rentals for a casual networking event. We planned on having a simple get-together with coffee and some snacks, but we were pleasantly surprised with gorgeous table settings by Classic, charming arrangements by Charlotte’s Flowers, and a tasty breakfast from Lettuce Cater. It was so wonderful to walk into the space and see Classic’s staff’s talent. They transformed the space into a charming venue, making it so nice to sit down and discuss life with some of Albuquerque’s finest vendors. When we talked with them, we got to see how much they care for their clients and all the hard work that goes into making each couple feel uniquely special. This event was a blast, and it gave everyone the opportunity to not only discuss business, but build relationships.

This little meet-up was so much fun. The unexpected effort from the different businesses just went to show how much our advertisers care. They go above and beyond to make everything they participate in look and feel special.

Special thanks to these vendors, we couldn’t have done this without you:

Bosque Beauty: The Great River Inspires a Regal Wedding

Uniquely situated unlike any other venue in New Mexico, the Hyatt Regency Tamaya offers stunning views along the Rio Grande with the Sandia Mountains as your backdrop. Taking cues from nature, Bosque Beauty features a palette of muted violet, pale yellow, cream, heathered greyblue, and radiant orchid; create a striking yet subtle statement. Contrasting the natural elements are metallic linens, silver chargers and gold chiavari chairs—right on trend for 2015. At the end of the evening, let a white horse and carriage whisk you and your mate away to a secluded and romantic honeymoon suite.
