Engage!11 Conference : Cayman Islands

Last Tuesday I had the immense honor of presenting at Engage!11 Conference in the Cayman Islands. I attended this conference for the first time last year and I walked away with a deeper appreciation for the wedding industry. This conference caters to wedding coordinators/designers, so when I was asked to speak, I wondered if I’d be able to connect in an impactful way. And, no, impactful isn’t a word, but I use it all the time because I love it!

Rebecca Grinnals and Kathryn Arce–our gracious hosts–opened the doors to the Ritz Carlton and every detail was impeccably set, every color coordinated, and every hair in place. Each day was filled with speakers and I have a notebook brimming with inspiration and new ideas.

By the time it was my turn to take the stage, I nearly doubled over with nerves…no, really, I could’ve kissed my knees. I’m usually nervous before I speak, but standing in front of such an incredible group of people, I almost lost my marbles. What am I?! 80 years old? Who says that?! Anyway, I took a few deep breaths and started…then laughed my way through my presentation…

Just kidding. I tried to form coherent thoughts and deliver a speech on How to Build a Personal Brand…I’ve aimed to do this with my wedding photography, but the idea applies to almost any business.

Later that day everyone boarded a catamaran and sailed through the Cayman Islands. This was, by far, one of the most memorable experiences and will be a highlight of the year. I was incredibly thankful to sit back and reflect on the the past eleven months. I sat by myself for a bit and tried to memorize everything, if only for the briefest of moments.

We docked in Rum Bay (don’t worry, mom, I drank the non-alcoholic rum!) and I was taken with the island beauty…

I’m incredibly thankful to Rebecca and Kathryn for their generous invitation…and their faith in me. I feel so blessed to have them as allies and friends.

I wouldn’t say we were business nerds but my husband just sent me a Slack message asking me to call him.
