Phoenix WIPA Launch Party | Hotel Valley Ho

by Heather at Outstanding Occasions on

A few weeks ago the Phoenix WIPA Launch Party was held at Hotel Valley Ho with guest speaker Sean Low.  Some of our founding members including Dawn Peterson, catering manager at Hotel Valley Ho; Courtney Townsend, catering manager at Montelucia; Natalie Hall, catering manager at JW Marriott Desert Ridge, Carrie Smith of Wildflower Linen, Matt Davis of MT Sounds and Rachel, Jennifer and I got together to plan this fabulous event.  We were all so excited with the end result and couldn’t be happier to have such an amazing organization here in Phoenix.

Check out this great highlight film  of the event produced by Serendipity Videography!

The beautiful florals were designed by Flora Bella (top right) and Table Tops Etc.

At the end of the night, Torched Goodness, a creme brûlée food truck, delighted everyone with their arrival.  Drew Coleman of Life Design Events thought the sea salt caramel creme brûlées were fabulous!! :)
