It may be considered “June Gloom”outside in San Diego, but inside the US Grant Hotel, it was quite a different feeling. It was the first time the group has been to the US Grant Hotel in quite some time, so our hosts from the US Grant, Kanani Ching & Mark Higginbotham, outdid themselves and placed the group in one of the most beautiful and historic rooms in the hotel, the Crystal Ballroom!
As usual, we handled all business, and then the group was given a special treat: instead of two speakers this month, we had one topic for the presentation…. social media, specifically an exploration into Instagram. Shannon Henry, of Studio Carre Photographie, and Janine Abdallah spoke to the group about this extremely useful social media application and how various wedding vendors can use this tool for their business and work!
We dined on some delicious seasonal food, learned a thing or five about social media, and of course, networked with one another post-meeting. Next month we head to the Sheraton on Harbor Island! Stay tuned!
