The Phoenix chapter of NACE (a professional catering and event industry group) hosts a yearly Arizona fundraising event called Project NACE and this year the theme was Design Through the Decades. We look forward to participating in this creative fundraiser every year (we had a ton of fun creating our dress!) and doing our part to raise money for Singleton Moms which supports single parents with cancer.
Our dress, a 1960’s mod frock, was made with copies of our magazine and is paired with a fun clutch that is also made from our magazines!
One of our Elite Circle wedding venues, Tempe Mission Palms, also participated in the fashion show. With the hotel being built in 1985, it was only fitting to design a dress from the 1980’s that included actual palm leaves along with pops of neon orange to tie in the orange trees that are all within the beautiful lighted courtyard of the hotel.
Elite Circle bridesmaid shop Bella Bridesmaids added some “real” fashion to the show with some of their gorgeous bridesmaid dresses. The brand new Theia rose gold sequin gown and separates from designer Jenny Yoo were a hit with the crowd.
The chic Twobirds jumpsuit has the same styling options as the convertible dresses (cool, right?) and the soft floral print dress by Donna Morgan has a super feminine silhouette
There were also decade-themed tables designed by the members of NACE- all centerpieces were created by Creative Occasions and the chairs and chargers were provided by Classic Party Rentals. You can see that the Project NACE event is a charity event in Arizona that’s not to be missed!
Awards went to: Classic Party Rentals (Vendor Sponsor of the Year) and Kellie Mendoza with Tempe Mission Palms (President’s Rising Star:). Yes, our Elite Circle wedding professionals truly are the BEST!
