This past week, Alexander Lilly Events' email marketing company The Wedding Newsletter had the pleasure of attending The Special Event in Chicago. The Special Event Ambassadors Frank Andonoplas of Frank Event Design and Audrey Gordon of Audrey Gordon Parties, Ltd. orchestrated such an incredible conference that we never wanted to leave! It was a truly rewarding experience. We met wonderful people, attended amazing parties, and saw some breathtaking exhibits and performances. Here are some of our highlights from the week...
The ABC Mix & Mingle
Jane Skarosi, the Illinois State Coordinator for ABC, sure knows how to show her chapter a good time! Great appetizers, great wine, and as always with ABC, great company! Michael O'Dea from O'Dea Entertainment set the tone right with an excellent DJ set (and lots of punny jokes) to get our crowd in the mingling mood.
Dinner with Alan Berg
Everyone knows Alan Berg as a renaissance man: he's an author, an inspirational speaker, a business consultant, a website mechanic, and an encyclopedia of wedding expertise. But the real treat for us was ordering some sliders and getting to know Alan as a man who, deep down, is simply a hopeless romantic with a million endearing, romantic, hilarious stories about his wife and his own marriage. The Hyatt's pulled pork sliders weren't so bad either.
The Exhibit Hall
Every single company that showcased at The Special Event brought their A-game. So many of the exhibit tables were just unreal. Backdrops Beautiful provided a backdrop of the Chicago skyline that was practically to scale. Everflora turned an entire wall into a labyrinth of flowers. The Canvas Nursery had decor remnant of scenery from Alice in Wonderland. But one of our most favorite aspects of the exhibit hall were the fun live performances! David Rothstein Music killed it on stage with an 11-piece performance. The Three Waiters tricked us into thinking they were working the event only to surprise us with booming opera solos. And the Lisa Rene Band brought down the house with a soulful Adele cover. See more of our favorites exhibits below!
