Wedding and Event Heroes host #BeaWeddingHero at Terranea Resort


We hosted a wed­ding indus­try event on May 13, 2014 at Ter­ranea Resort. We had a grand time at our #beawed­dinghero cham­pagne brunch and train­ing ses­sions for over 100 wed­ding & event plan­ners and wed­ding vendors.

First on the agenda was for every­one to enjoy a relax­ing round of net­work­ing on the Catalina Ter­race under sunny skies over­look­ing a clear view of its island name­sake. After enjoy­ing fab­u­lous par­faits, kabobs made of bacon, fresh fruit and french toast, make your own Pavlo­vas (by Made­byMeg) and more savory and sweet food, we directed the group for a whirl­wind round of six ses­sions to fix com­mon prob­lems that come up dur­ing weddings.

Be A Wed­ding Hero Lessons

Casey Schwartz and Kit Wertz of Flower Duet taught their groups how to cre­ate an emer­gency bou­ton­nière for when an usher or grooms­man needs a replace­ment on-the-fly. Casey showed the group step-by-step how to cre­ate a bou­ton­nière from scratch, while Kit showed every­one our method for how to pin flow­ers on a lapel so they stays put!
