We could not be more excited to share we are featured on BizBash for the 2019 WIPA SoCal Design Challenge!
“The Southern California chapter of Wedding International Professionals Association hosted a design challenge that evoked the 1920s, 1940s, 1950s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.
As the lines continue to blur between event design for weddings and corporate gatherings, more and more inspiration can be found in the stylish world of wedding vendors. Case in point: the Southern California chapter of the Wedding International Professional Association’s (WIPA) annual Design Challenge, which was full of smart, eye-catching design ideas for all types of events.
This year, that theme was “Decades of Glam,” with teams creating eye-catching tablescapes and immersive spaces around the 1940s, 1970s, 1990s, and more. The theme was chosen because of the history of host venue City Market Social House in downtown L.A.
While in the past the Design Challenge had been a more formal sit-down dinner within the spaces, organizers opted for food stations this year—in part because of the venue’s large, open floor plan. The change allowed guests to explore the environments more thoroughly. “I just really wanted guests to be able to walk through the designs and see them from a 360-degree perspective,” explained Mendez.” – via BizBash
