On Wednesday night, I attended an event put on by YWD Magazine for wedding industry professionals.  The highlight of this inspirational evening was experiencing the latest trends in wedding decor.  The location was the amazingly beautiful Taglyan Cultural Complex in Hollywood.  There was food, entertainment, a photo station, and lots of mingling going on!  Can’t wait to attend the next one!!
