May 14 NACE Meeting
Wedding Season is Here! Let's celebrate the Big Day! Join Alamo NACE on May 14th for an amazing wedding trends educational session--GaGa for LGBTQ Weddings: The Rainbow Connection! After this fun and interactive program, you will see all the colors of the Rainbow. Weddings are the best day of a couple's life; from the cake, the decorations, music and entertainment, to the choice of venue. Everything must be a perfect fit. How do the logistics of a wedding change for a same-sex couple? As event professionals, we strive to create a beautiful experience for each and every couple that walks in to our business. Our featured speakers, Jordan Maney and Parker Radbourne, did exactly that when they started their companies, and are going to teach us the triumphs and what we can learn more of to cater to the LGBTQ community.
Jordan Maney, launched All The Days Event Company in September 2016 with a goal to reach South Texas couples with inclusive hearts and creative minds. As a graduate from the University of Texas at Austin, Jordan Maney moved back to San Antonio to bring progressive values she cherishes to the industry she's most passionate about. She helps wedding vendors better understand and connect with their local LGBTQ+ community in a sincere way. In addition to operating her business, Jordan Maney is the assistant editor for Catalyst Wedding magazine, founder of the Brash newtorking organization for women business owners, and a board member of Liftfund's San Antonio Women's Business Center.
Parker Radbourne is a local portrait and wedding photographer who has worked with clients of all sexualities and gender indentities. Growing up in an extremely conservative religious community, Parker lost his family, friends, and home when he came out as queer, and then transgender, as a young adult. After moving to San Antonio eight years ago, and starting his transition he became involved in local and state LGBTQ activism and education, while also developing his photography brand, The PK Photographs.
Our event will be held at the exquisite Club at Sonterra who will be showcasing their hospitable service with a spectacular dinner and open bar--Check out the menu below for more details.
