news + press :: june’s meeting at the W Hotel

We traveled downtown for June’s Weddings of Distinction (WOD) meeting, and this month,  Lauren Bonahoom of the W Hotel cordially hosted our monthly networking gathering.

The space (the Kelvin Restaurant) was decorated perfectly, and attendees were welcomed on the outdoor patio with delicious mojitos and tunes by DJ Volf.  Once we were seated, new WOD members as well as guests were introduced to the room, and then we were spoiled with a lunch of mojito shrimp with either a choice of salmon or chicken.

The team at the W Hotel really outdid themselves, and it was wonderful to hear from Lauren and her team about all the new “happenings” at the W, as well as about the unique and creative ways in which they cater to those getting married in San Diego.

Our speakers this month were both “sensational,” and we mean sensational both figuratively as well as literally!  Kimmy with Sensation Show Band spoke about the growth her band has experienced and how her band and business can cater to most styles of wedding music.  Sensation Show Band offers full service packages and can even travel performing for weddings  all over the country!  After the first presenter, Staci with Sensational Treats spoke and informed the group about all the possibilities her company caters to in terms of wedding snacks and treats.  She, also, was gracious enough to provide each guest with a small bag of cotton candy to take home!

The meeting ended with a giveaway of a dinner for two AND an overnight stay from our gracious hosts at the W Hotel!  We all also had the chance to tour part of the hotel to see the new upgrades to the dining and patio areas!

Special thanks, again, to Lauren Bonahoom at the W Hotel for the hospitality; to Frankie Hartwell from Hartworks Floral for the centerpieces; to the presenters, Sensation Show Band and Sensational Treats; ABI Photo for the pictures.

Next month, we’ll be at Stone Brewery in Escondido, so check back in as our fun continues!! 🙂
