OUR CEO JO ANNE V. BROWN REPRESENTS THE CAYMAN ISLANDS AT THE DWP CONGRESS IN ITALY

 

Celebrations Founder, CEO & Creative Director, Jo Anne V. Brown, was recently in Italy at the Destination Wedding Planners Congress to represent the Cayman Islands and celebrate the Industry with the world’s most prestigious and well known Weddings Professionals.

The trip began with Jo Anne’s arrival to the St. Regis Florence where the DWP Organizers had pre-set the suite for her arrival to be adorned with butlers and gifts suited for royalty (like an actual crown on a red velvet pilow. Really.). The truly spectacular arrival set the tone for a royal affair in Italy…

…and was it ever. The Congress weekend opened with a welcome reception at the unbelievably stunning and iconic Palazzo Vecchio. Described as a “microcosm where art and history have been indissolubly bound for centuries”, the Palazzo Vecchio is dubbed the most important civic monument in Florence. Guests arrived to a magical royal performance and a crowd of hundreds of tourists surrounding the opening of the event in awe.

Thousands of luscious white roses accented the golden candelabras leading guests to the main event. An absolutely breathtaking entrance followed by an even more stunning venue of captivating frescoes within a splendid palatial ambiance.

The following three days were informative ones with the top minds in the Wedding Industry coming together to share knowledge and information whilst networking in one of the world’s most beautiful cities. The days were filled with speaking engagements, luncheons and business meetings among industry peers from around the world – and of course, fabulous food, drink & sight-seeing.

We also had the opportunity to visit the stunning Villa Corsini for an amazing sit down event and performances, followed by an unbelievable showcase of an array of fireworks to finish off the evening.
