Real Wedding: Cara + Hayden | Haven | Birmingham, AL

With winter weather blanketing much of the East Coast today, we’re staying warm thinking about all of the springtime weddings that are soon to come. One of our favorites of 2017 was Cara and Hayden’s March wedding in Birmingham, AL.

From lush florals in soft, natural color palettes to the cool vibe of their venue, Haven, beauty abounded at every turn.  The couple chose Ascension to rock their reception… and the band delivered! We love that guests were given LED tambourines and glow sticks to up their fun on the dance floor.

Big thanks to Taylor Dane Photography for sharing the incredible images from Cara and Hayden’s special day.

Entertainment Trends for Corporate Events in 2018

What will be the next big thing in corporate entertainment this year? With almost 3,000 booked dates already on ECE’s books for 2018, we are seeing trends emerge. From conference general and closing sessions to product launches to employee recognition events and more, in 2018 it is about the experience. Corporate event planners and DMCs are looking for entertainment that is engaging. It’s not enough to simply draw people to the event. The goal is for attendees to stay at the event completely engaged and consumed, and leave the event changed or inspired by the objective or messaging.  Entertainment plays a key role in achieving this goal. Following are the top five trends we are seeing for 2018.
