Last night was a beautiful night of celebration. The American Association of Certified Wedding Planners (AACWP) held their Eighth Annual Vendi Awards, celebrating the favorite vendors of the esteemed organization’s 100+ professional wedding planners. And guess what…
Yes – StarDust won the award for Favorite Bridal Salon! We are incredibly honored to recognized among a field of several worthy salons (one of which is our sister boutique, LuLu’s Bridal!). The AACWP’s polling method is a two-part process, where contenders must first be nominated, then voted on by the membership of the Association. Thank you, AACWP members, for this honor and for the privilege to serve you and your brides in this wonderful DFW wedding market! We love our jobs!
Another highlight of our evening was the promotion of two of our wedding planners from “trained” status to “certified.”
Our planning rock stars Devan and Laura make it official, having exceeded the stringent requirements to earn Certified Wedding Planners status! Congrats, ladies!
Here are a few pics of the gorgeous evening, hosted by the always elegant Four Seasons Resort and Club. We’ll round up some more for you soon, but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy these!
