August and September WNUSA Meetings

The late summer sun could not have been planned any better for our August and September Wedding Network USA meetings. Both events were full of sun, networking and an unforgettable setting!

August 2010
Challenger Ridge Winery Rachel, owner of Challenger Ridge Winery, and Russell dean Lowell, chef and owner of Russell dean Lowell Catering hosted us with fine wine, a live salmon demonstration and dinner, as WNUSA celebrated their member appreciation month! Our meeting host for the evening, Jillian Cook of WaveLink Music, made sure a detail was not to be missed as we spent the evening enjoying a much needed night off in the thick of wedding season. Thank you to all of those who made the August meeting possible!

Alderbrook Resort & Spa
Kirstie Warren of Simply Wed and Mark Phelan of Alderbrook Resort pulled out all the stops at our September WNUSA meeting. From spa services to a late night smore's party, we were treated like royalty! The afternoon began as guests checked into their rooms at The Alderbrook Resort and The Bend Property then headed over to the Alderbrook waterfront for cocktails and networking. As the sun set we all boarded the Lady Alderbrook for a sunset dinner cruise. The cruise featured views of the hood canal, chair massages and a feast of Alderbrook's finest! Once docked and back on shore the evening continued with an after party hosted by Simply Wed and a gourmet smore's station by Tallant House. Tallant House's homemade marshmallows and graham crackers were a crowd favorite! Thank you to all of those vendors who made this meeting the one to top!
