When Lorey Bird, the former of Special Events Director for all of Harrah’s Properties Atlantic City, called me to say her daughter was getting married and she couldn’t imagine anyone else that she’d rather have there to provide entertainment.
Her beautiful daughter Brooke was getting married to a man she’s known since high school but went their separate ways to opposite parts of the country only to find their way back to each other’s hearts.
They’re having the celebration at the historic Smithville Inn just north of Atlantic City.
I’ve worked with and gotten to known Lorey for over a decade now and she’s a rare individual that has been through a lot and is always determined to find the beauty in life. And she does. She’s always been one of our biggest supporters and fans.
In 2001 she sent a note that really touched me including the following, “Michael you have a rare gift and charisma that transcends energy. I cannot imagine doing this event without you.” And I would continue to receive notes like that throughout the years from events at Harrahs, Showboat and Caesars.
I am really excited about this wedding celebration and being able to give back to Lorey and her family for her support and trust. The wedding is coming up this weekend.
I am planning to share with you some of the highlights in video. We have a few surprises in store so stay tuned next week for the post.
Future Update: In another few weeks we have another wedding that will feature not 1 but 2 of our former wedding couples – The Shafirs and the Moussas in attendance. It’s always a huge blast to see our former brides and grooms and reconncect with them. You can be sure that dance floor is going to be kicking!
Enjoy the last beauty of Summer!
Your Celebration Director
