The Events Gallery at Cornerstone Gardens in Sonoma was teeming June 27th, as members of ISES Napa-Sonoma joined our new Board of Directors at the "Planting the Seeds of Growth for an Abundant Future" event and swearing in ceremony.
Organized by Robin McKee of Wine Country Party (who provided the event equipment for the night), the event featured amazing decor by Sylvia Parkinson of ATL Events and Allison Creager of D'Lovely. A delicious family style meal provided by Feast, stunning centerpieces by Julie's Flowers and wines from Nicholson Ranch, Sebastiani, Silverado Vineyards, Domaine Chandon and Mumm Napa Valley all combined into an unforgettable night at a uniquely beautiful venue.
Heather Harris of Rising Sun Catering and Jenne Hohn of Jenne Hohn Events - who together planted the seeds that became our chapter - welcomed the group and offered thanks (by way of gorgeous flowers by Chloe Vanessa) to those who served during the nomination and election process. Before the meal was served, Marshall Bauer of Wine Country Party shared his ideas on how event professionals in the Valley might better work together to enhance the event production process for us all.
After the board was sworn in by Heather Henderson, CSEP of the International Board of Directors, Jenne Hohn - our first ever president of the ISES Napa-Sonoma Chapter - spoke of her excitement, and of her vision for the chapter.
The crowd adjourned to a fabulous dessert lounge provided by Feast in Cornerstone's Garden Tent, and throughout the night, guests were invited to tour this amazing site.
