Keep Calm & WEN On: February’s Monthly Mixer at The Secret Garden Events Center

As we announced last week we are the new owners of one of the biggest wedding and events networking groups in Arizona, The Wedding and Event Network. Last month we had the privilege of planning the monthly mixer at The Secret Garden Events Center at the base of South Mountain. As vendors we are at the peak of a busy spring season so we wanted to create a relaxation theme and remind everyone to “Keep Calm and WEN On.”
We created this atmosphere through the collaboration of some of Arizona’s finest vendors. The banquet hall was made beautiful by the gorgeous linens from Southwick Linens and floral design from Butterfly Petals. 

We had live music from Ocotillo Music who not only played beautiful classics but also did some great cover songs as well. They help set the mood wonderfully and are great for any size or style event. 
Guest were able to take home their own dipped candle favor from Armadillo Wax Works to help stay relaxed at home as well. Armadillo Wax brought a do-it-yourself dipping station with different candle shapes to dip and floating candles for each guest to take home! Guest had so much fun mix and matching colors with the candles they chose. 

The delicious food was served by Creative Hands Cuisine and dessert by Inspired Sugar. Guest always love mini cupcakes and cake pops!

The relaxing ambience on the front and back patio was created through the beautiful custom candles from Candle Concierge and the wonder furniture rentals from Prim Unique Rentals. The lush gardens set with twinkle and bistro lights on a gorgeous Arizona night made it the best setting to grab a glass of wine from Pour Masters, kick up your feet, and relax. 

Harley Bonham Photography was so wonderful to work with and was able to capture beautiful shots of the event and new head shots for some of the WEN members! 

The beautiful venue coordinators at The Secret Garden Events 
Center, they are so fun to work with! 

Thank you to all the vendors who helped us with the event and for all of your love and support after the announcement was made. We look forward to WEN’s exciting future and helping elevate Arizona’s vendors and wedding industry!
