Association of Bridal Consultants, Orange County – Newport Beach Civic Center


Last month, I was honored to document the meeting of the Orange County branch of The Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC). The event took place at the Newport Beach Civic Center and was coordinated by Morgan Lamothe of Above All Catering, and Holly Schoenke-Stein, of Simply Sweet Weddings. Vintage decor, gorgeous flowers and delicious food, made the event unforgettable.  The evening was capped off with a very informative question and answer session with a panel of knowledgeable event planners, from Orange County Venues.
