April Team Meeting

The Bride Associates Team is always excited about gaining more knowledge to better serve our brides. At our monthly staff meetings we invite a new vendor each month to educate us on their services and products. This month we were hosted by Out of the Garden and they treated us to an amazing evening at their shop! The entire staff at Out of the Garden welcomed us along with Lisa and Chef Andrew from Tastefully Yours, Ruben Reynoso, owner of El Wine Chateau, and Laura Kelsey with Celebration Event Rentals.

We started the evening with a tour of wines from Ruben with El Wine Chateau. He gave us a sampling of a variety of different wines and educated us on their region and how they paired with different foods.

Chef Andrew with Tastefully Yours created us an amazing display of melt in your mouth food. The ingredients he uses are all fresh and the quality is top notch. I think our favorite were the mango and brie quesadillas! Yummy!

Valarie and Donna plus the entire Out of the Garden crew gave us a full tour of their shop including their huge cooler filled with fresh flowers daily. You cant help but feel overwhelmed by the beauty and the aroma. They have a inventory of unique antiques and other creative props that allow brides create a unique setting for the wedding. They are truly a special find and the service they offer each bride is only one of the many reasons that you should bring a bride to them! They make each bride feel special and just like their brides they treated us to a fantatic evening and gave us fun spring goody bags to take home with us!

A tremendous THANK YOU to Out of the Garden, Tastefully Yours, El Chateau, and Celebration Event Rental for contributing to our team meeting and making it fun and memorable. We appreciate all you do for our brides and our team. Here are just a few photos from the meeting. More to come!
