Tallahassee Association of Wedding Professionals
The Tallahassee Association of Wedding Professionals is a very talented group made up of over 50 of the top wedding vendors in Tallahassee, Florida! I’m honored to serve as Vice President on the board and serve such a fantastic community every day.
If you’re recently engaged you might not even know what TAWP is so let me give you a quick run down. TAWP is a close knit community that gathers on a monthly basis at different wedding venues within Tallahassee. Our meetings rotate between breakfast, lunch, and dinner where we gather over a meal and drinks. At every meeting I’m always so excited to network with vendors, brainstorm how we can better serve the wedding community, and also put a lot of focus on education and industry trends.
TAWP also offers several popular wedding related events throughout the year that are incredibly valuable to recently engaged couples, their parents, and of course, the wedding party!
Our annual wedding show often falls on the first weekend in March. This show is perfect for newly engaged couples who are still choosing the vendors and would love a chance to meet a lot of vendors all in one day. VIP tickets are really popular because each VIP receives a ton of gift certificates to use with our vendors. VIP and general admission ticket holders both enjoy food, cocktails, prizes, and tons of fun vendor activities. It’s one show you don’t want to miss!
TAWP also offer Matchmakers throughout the year. The Matchmaker event like really fun speed dating but your partner is with you and you’re finding the perfect match for your wedding team! It’s the perfect event for couples who are in the very early stages of their engagement and would love to meet vendors in a smaller more boutique setting. You’ll have a few minutes to chat with up to 15 vendors and gather really valuable information, enjoy food, drinks, prizes, and more!
This year we’ve also put an emphasis on styled sessions. These sessions are less about growing our portfolios and more about working together as vendors to show couples something new and exciting that they could use on their own wedding day. It’s also just fun to get together and learn about what other vendors do on a wedding day so that we can show up on your big day and work together like a dream team!
Joining TAWP years ago was one of the best decisions I made for my business. It not only made me a better photographer but also a smarter business owner and very strong resource for my clients. When I was asked to join the board 3 years ago, I jumped on the opportunity and love being able to serve a community that has provided me with so much support.
