Our Blog Has Moved!

Over the past couple of years, we toyed with the idea of merging our blog with our site. We shied away from it because this has been the go to location for our stories for so long. But as in life, things must change. 

I find it so much easier for my readers to consolidate all of our material in one location. So, starting today our blog is located via www.MakeMemorable.com/blog. I hope that you continue to share in our memorable moments in our new location!

Memorial Day Weekend Made Memorable! 

Tags

, , , , ,

This past weekend we worked events for two major clients. They are not major because of who they are, but more so for what they bring and mean to the community. 

The weekend started with events for The Kam Cares Foundation, a non-profit organization created by Seattle Seahawks captain Kam Chancellor. The foundation Kam seeks to equip children from underserved communities in Hampton Roads and Seattle areas with educational, health, and wellness tools and resources to position students for greater academic success.

The annual Bam Bam’s Spring Jam consisted of the Cocktail Reception/Silent Auction,Celebrity  Bowling Party, Community Coookout and Celebrity Basketball Game. These events all occurred from Friday to Saturday. I will go into details about the events in a later post. 

Sunday’s event consisted of the wedding of WTKR News 3 Morning Anchor/Reporter Jessica Larche.  She married her beloved Sean Washington. 

Jessica also made a weekend of her nuptials. In addition to hosting family and friends, the couple also hosted a charity fitness challenge. The proceeds were donated to the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and Eastern Shore

Their wedding and reception was no “cookie-cutter” fare. It was definitely the Big Apple meets the Big Easy. I will let that marinate for a moment… 

Following the reception was a benefit concert that supported the non-profit organization, Parents Against Bullying.  

We will take a closer look at all of the events later, but did I mention that Saturday was my birthday? 

Work never ceases but when you enjoy what you do and enjoy being around the people you do it for, I will gladly miss any birthday celebration! 

Memorable Mention: Product Preview Party

A couple of months ago we were contacted by a client who was launching a new product, perfume, and wanted to have an event to introduce it and attract investors. We loved the idea of being able to present their product in a gleaming light, so we accepted the challenge! 

The potential investors seemed to like the fragrance (and hopefully our design, lol) 

Here’s a look at our tablescape design for the event.

This weekend, we had the pleasure of putting on the Modern Femme Movement Conference. It is a 3 day conference and trade show that is a collaboration of female entrepreneurs, small business owners and powerhouse speakers from all walks of life. The event focused on empowerment, relationships, worthiness, business management, social media, body image, dream casting and more. 

The event was held from May 12-14th at the Westin Virginia Beach Town Center. 

There were so many awesome speakers present such as Jaime Primak-Sullivan, Shavon Lindley, Daniel Velicki, Cheryl Tan, Stephanie Nickolich, Amy Latta, Brittany Bullen, Tim Hussey and the list goes on! Not too many conferences possess the quantity and caliber of speakers that Modern Femme has! 

Although I was working, I was able to grab some pics of the weekend. To learn more about Modern Femme, visit http://www.ModernFemme.com. 

Memorable Recap: Birth Of A Nation Private Screening

It’s been a little while since our last post, but that’s because we are in the midst of our busy season. The onset of our streak began last month when we were contacted by Liquid Soul Media to assist in the private screenings of the film Birth Of A Nation. The film is set to be released in October, but the studios and filmmakers wanted to do a screening in advance of the regular prescreening. 

We had less than a week to assist the studio and marketing company in setting up two screenings in two separate cities that would run simultaneously. Let’s just say that with the help of great friendors, we were able to make it happen! 

I will not go into details about the movie at this time, but I will say that it is a must see! Here are a few captures from our Norfolk screening. Thank you to The Redellyn Group and Ryan Wynn for helping MEBA bring these two screenings to fruition in such a short time.
