NACE | Merrimon-Wynne | Raleigh, NC

Oh my word, y'all! Chelsey with Gather Together Events outdid herself with this amazing back yard bbq styled NACE event that took place this month at the ever so beautiful Merrimon-Wynne. Seriously?! It was the cutest most southern thing I think I have ever seen. Everything from the linens, to the beverages, the lanterns, the flowers, and--I mean the list just goes on! I had so much fun interacting with so many other vendors old and new. If you have ever been on the fence about attending a NACE event, please come talk to me so I can persuade you to come as my guest. If not for the amazing opportunities to meet likewise people in the industry, at least come for the spectacular service given from the vendors who put on every month.

Triangle NACE | The Stockroom | Raleigh, NC

I had the utmost privilege of photographing last May's Triangle NACE event at the Stockroom in downtown Raleigh. If you are in the events industry, I highly suggest you look into joining with your local NACE chapter. There are so many opportunities to network, mingle, and put your work out there. It is really a joy. 

This month's NACE event was hosted by Dana with C & D Events. She is an utter joy and completely rocked this event out of the ballpark. When guests arrived they were greeted with cocktail hour, then sat for the main course and attraction. Both Southern Bride and Groom and Weddings Magazine were put on the spot while guests asked questions regarding what they look for in submissions for their magazines. It was so much fun! The insight these ladies gave was just tremendous! Super helpful meet and greet, I was so ecstatic that I could photograph them!

After dinner, whose delicious entrees were served by Soignee Events, each table went upstairs to the Glass Box for a surprise competition! Each table was given 10 minutes to style a table in one of 3 categories (Bohemian, High Drama, and Romantic). They had 6 models to choose from and a plethora of linens, florals, and knick knacks to style the table. It was super competitive! The teams were all amazing and definitely showed how good they were under pressure!

Below are a few images from the event!

Special thanks to all vendors involved!
