This years’ event took place on Sunday, September 20, 2020. This was the third year of this event and once again was hosted at Log House Garden at Willow Lake in Keizer, Oregon. There were over 25 professionals there to meet couples and help them plan their wedding.
2020 has been a year to remember…. And not for good reasons. Even with the COVID-19 Pandemic we decided as a group to move forward with the showcase and to be sure to follow all safety precautions in place. Our showcase was scheduled for Sunday, September 13 but unfortunately less than a week before the showcase the Willamette Valley was hit with wildfires. There were evacuations of many people, including some of our professionals in our group. The decision was made to postpone in the interest of respect for the safety of all vendors and guests to the following weekend.
While the showcase this year looked much different than previous years it was still very successful. We had over 150 people come visit us. And the sun was shining!!!! The last 2 years we have been in a downpour for most of the show. The smoke had cleared from the wild fires as well so this was the first day in almost 2 weeks we were able to see blue skies in the Willamette Valley.
Thankfully, Caroline with Events Planned Perfectly was able to take the helm and steer this event toward success! Without her hard work and dedication to making this event not only possible but great would never have happened.
Every year there is a charity we choose to give the proceeds from the show to. This year, due to the wildfires happening just before our show we decided to donate to The Red Cross Cascades Region. They did wonderful work for all those evacuated (people and animals) and it was an easy decision to decide to donate to them. We were able to donate $500 to them to help.
Thank you to all the professionals and guests who made this day so special! Until next year….
