The Pink Bride had an absolutely fabulous time mixing and mingling with many of Knoxville and Chattanooga’s finest wedding professionals at the Knoxville and Chattanooga Wedding Professionals Networking Luncheon, hosted by the beautiful Whitestone Country Inn in Kingston, Tennessee. This East Tennessee networking event took place on May 7th from 12pm to 2:30pm and was informative, relaxing, and fun!
Upon arrival, wedding professionals mingled leisurely while enjoying the sights and sounds of Whitestone, one of America’s premier bed and breakfast resorts. Shortly afterwards, guests enjoyed a world-class lunch prepared by the culinary expert and lead chef at Whitestone. Fred Jacob, CEO and President of The Pink Bride, shared some of the information he received while at the annual bridal show producers convention last week. A few of the topics he touched on briefly included the importance of branding your business and securing a mobile-friendly website. Shortly thereafter, Fred introduced Paul Cowell, owner and innkeeper at Whitestone Country Inn. He spoke of how much of a blessing Fred and Donna were in the early days of Whitestone and how integral their advertising assistance has been in Whitestone’s success. In fact, Whitestone’s wildly popular attributes for Tennessee brides and grooms has led the venue to recently hosting its 1,000th wedding!
The meeting then concluded with another leisurely meet-and-greet for vendors to network and exchange business cards. Guests were then offered maps of the property at Whitestone and were invited to tour the beautiful property!
