2014 is officially underway, and last month, our meeting was hosted by our newest venue-member, the Dana Hotel. With beautiful views and a 3-course lunch, this meeting did not disappoint.
We heard from Cynthia Zatkin, of CZ Events. She explained the evolution of her wedding coordination business and described in detail the special care and attention she offers her couples. We also heard from La Valencia Hotel. “La V” as it is being rebranded as, is in the midst of renovations and again, rebranding, so Bobby Fader, the Catering Manager there, described the plans, the work that has already been done, and what we can expect to see going forward from the hotel in general.
It was a great afternoon. We are pleased to have the Dana as one of our members!
Our vendors truly at top of the line, and when their respective work gets featured in a high-end bridal magazine, we’re impressively proud. For a few of our amazing wedding vendors, their work has been featured in the latest issues of Ceremony Magazine. Ceremony is an exclusive magazine publication, and to have so many features in the final print, which are distributed all over California, is impressive.
It is with heavy hearts that we announce that our president, Bob Brichmann, has unexpectedly passed away. Bob was an amazingly talented wedding DJ, and the San Diego wedding industry has truly lost an icon. Besides presiding over Weddings of Distinction, Bob was also a key player in other wedding industry organizations like NACE.
His sense of humor was unmatchable; his dedication to our group was unparalleled; and his contributions as a wedding DJ made many a wedding fun.
Bob is survived by his wife, Merrylin. Due to the sudden nature of Bob’s passing, a memorial fund has been created to help Merrylin with the unexpected expenses associated with this unfortunate loss. Any donation amount is most graciously accepted.
A celebration of Bob’s life is planned: Monday, March 10th 10:30am Sheraton Mission Valley, 1433 Camino Del Rio S, San Diego, CA 92108
