After months of careful planning, the much anticipated Rebecca Chan Workshop for wedding planners finally came to life this past weekend! With the support and shared experiences of multiple industry leaders, this premium workshop was a unique opportunity for attendees to delve deep inside the business of weddings. In true Rebecca Chan Events fashion, all the stops were pulled to deliver a truly immersive experience for the attendees. Accented with vibrant spring colours, the workshop truly was inspirational in every sense of the word.

Held at the Berkeley Bicycle Club, the entire day was captured by Mango Studios and James Frodyma.

Part of what made the workshop so unique was the intimate and interactive setting where attendees were able to freely chat with all the guest speakers over lunch, offering a far more customized learning environment.

The day was indeed well-spent! The curriculum covered a lot of ground and the intimate setting lent itself to a far more immersive learning environment than that of a more traditionally regimented classroom style. Hats off to Rebecca and team for their flawless execution of a fantastic idea. Thank you for bringing us along for the ride!
