I'll try add summarize what a great day yesterday turned out to be, as I renewed the relationship with an Venue. My company is run on a very personal relationship between any vendor that can be seen on our site, we make a very thorough inspection into what we choose to represent, making sure that what we offer to our clients are authentic and something we can confidently represent.
On this specif venue our previous relationship went through an exclusive management that we work with on a few of our other venues, which has recently expired and they have branched off, retaking booking control and allowing other planners to book directly with the venue.
For us it is very important how we make our introduction to new venues, and it so happened we had a few mutual contacts with this owner. A month prior I had brought a wedding client in for a vendor offering custom invitations not offered on my site at the time, ending up meeting that owner, joining that owner for a industry exclusive networking event, befriending one of the founders of that organization mostly because she is awesome and we have lots of mutual interests, then realizing she and I (Avi) appreciate both these contact dearly.
Now that I have come to how I got to renew our relationship directly with this space, I can talk about the person behind the space.
How she has been running this Venue all this time and I have not met her, is a pure mystery to me. She is a woman with an amazing presence, one of those you can always spot in a crowd and understand why they are popular. She carries herself with a certain valor and class.
It was a real pleasure sitting with Ashley yesterday at her venue for 2 and half hours! and I can go on and on about the great personality Ashley has, and how much I enjoyed meeting with her but, for the sake of eventually ending this post I'll update you on her location and its unique aesthetics and details.
