ABC Orange County Trendsetter Awards

The Association of Bridal Consultants Orange County Chapter Trendsetter Awards were held on December 15, 2015 at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort in Orange County, California. The Trendsetter Awards is considered the favorite night of the year among members of the Orange County Chapter. AOO Events and AOO Floral worked with planner Kerrie Underhill and all the team members from the ABC to create a night of black, white and gold elegance for the audience of 300 South Coast wedding professionals. It was a wonderful way to celebrate the industry together. The room was an exciting blend of black, white and gold. See event sponsors at the end of this post to learn more about the team that made this happen.
