December 2016: Trendsetter Awards Gala

This year’s Trendsetter Awards Gala was fit for a princess.  What better way to end our year than an enchanted emerald evening at the Disneyland® Hotel.   Magical Cello music set the ambiance to our royal ball as we entered into the cocktail hour.  We enjoyed catching up with old friends and making new ones as we posed with Mickey and Minnie for photos, and enjoyed a silly moment with Joy Squad in their photo booth.  Kerrie Underhill and Kelsey Connelly really know how to plan and design a dazzling event that impresses from start to finish.   We congratulate all of this year’s winners on truly elevating the industry standard.

As we entered the emerald soaked Disneyland® Grand Ballroom our eyes were met with floating centerpieces, cascading orchids, and elegant crystal chandeliers.  Flowers by Cina really knows how to transform a ballroom into a real life fairy tale.  Guests were treated like royalty and could even pose with Cinderella’s Crystal Coach.  We eagerly anticipated the announcement of award winners as the presentation started and our elegant dinner service began.  Pixie dust filled the room as each guest received an ice slipper filled with apple sorbet to cleanse their palates before the main course was served.  As the awards concluded The Young Guns Band got the party started on our custom dance floor provided by Chiavari Chair Rentals.   We danced until the clock struck midnight, and we had to return to reality. The evening was truly a testament to how Orange County Bridal Consultants are continually impressing other chapters across the nation.
