Toss the Bouquet 2015

Chicago Wedding Industry Event – Toss The Bouquet 2015

My mind is reeling after another amazing Toss The Bouquet conference today! Beth Bernstein, of SQN Events, started Toss the Bouquet in 2013 with a vision to bring wedding industry leaders to the midwest to help raise the bar here in Chicago! I had the privilege of photographing the days events for the 2nd year in a row…and I never tire of learning and giving back to Toss the Bouquet. Special thanks to all the speakers and sponsors for helping make this conference a success!
