Corey McNabb's Workshop


This weekend I had the pleasure of hosting the opening party for Corey McNabb’s Workshop that is taking place this week. We held it at Corey’s studio in Asheville, NC. Thank you to The Purple Iris for the fabulous flowers, to Eric (28806 catering) for the delicious food, and to Ryan with Masterpiece Ice for the coolest ice carving ever! The electric guitar ice carving was the hit of the evening!
Check out the pictures that my husband took…

Corey also asked me to be one of the speakers at the conference…what an honor! Thank you, Corey, for the opportunity! My ‘talk’ will be taking place on Wednesday, so I will let you know if I ever get asked to do it again! 🙂
On Saturday we went up to my parents house in Waynesville, and just enjoyed being with family. One of my parents’ neighbors has a cute little boxer puppy named Oscar. So, we had to take Toni and Bezer (my mom and dad’s dog) to play!

Jonathan, Oscar and me!
The meeting…
Okay, let’s play!
Ya gonna let me down, Troy?

Ready for a walk!

    Hey Tara! Thank you so much for speaking today at the workshop. The information and insight you provided was fantastic. I would love to talk with you more about helping brides schedule their day when they don’t use a wedding planner — they are always asking me and I want to be helpful! Again, thanks so much for the time and effort we

    Hi Tara!

    Thank you for all you did last week to enrich our “rockstar” experience!

    The kick-off party was so chic and fun. Everything from the delicious food, to the flowers, to the fab ice sculpture just fit. It was really nice that your brother got to pop in too! We got to see a little snippet of one of his programs on Friday, courtesy of the fab Corey Mcnabb. So cool!

    Your presentation was obviously so well prepared. You just are one of those gals that never lets the details slide. Well, thank you for being you, because I just can’t tell you how helpful your presentation was! It is easy to see why you are so appreciated in this field.

    Thanks again for everything!
