On April 15, 2018, we held the third of three Wedding Academy events at Arcadian Loft. We hosted this fun and interactive event to share wedding planning tips from top industry professionals in an interactive and private setting. This event had a focus on styling, decor and guest experience. It was so much fun and so so stunning! The weather was pretty crummy that day, but we still had a great turnout and it sure looked like spring inside. See some of the highlights of the event below. Details at http://www.wedacademy.ca.
