On February 11, 2018, I hosted the Rebecca Chan Workshop for wedding planners. It was an immersive opportunity for attendees to learn best practices on the business of weddings and be inspired by a true Rebecca Chan Weddings event experience. I pulled out all the stops for this with some of my friends, who happen to be the best in the industry. I was inspired by vibrant spring colours with a modern touch. It was so much fun to put together! See it all below. Photos by Mango Studios.

During wedding season, all I see is blush and white, so I wanted to switch it up to a vibrant colour palette.
