Be a Wedding Hero Flowers by Flower Duet

Flower Duet co-host­ed a wed­ding indus­try event at Ter­ranea Resort on May 13 for over 100 wed­ding pro­fes­sion­als.

First on the agen­da was for every­one to enjoy a relax­ing round of net­work­ing on the Catali­na Ter­race under sun­ny skies over­look­ing a clear view of its island name­sake. After  enjoy­ing fab­u­lous par­faits, kabobs made of bacon, fresh fruit and french toast, make your own Pavlo­vas (by Made­byMeg) and more savory and sweet food, we direct­ed the group for a whirl­wind round of six ses­sions to fix com­mon prob­lems that come up dur­ing wed­dings.
