Active Shines at the WIPA Awards of Excellence!

On November 16, 2018, Wedding Professionals from all over the country embarked on Atlanta, Georgia to attend the WIPA (Wedding International Professionals Association)'s Annual Awards of Excellence. After the Atlanta Chapter of WIPA applied to host in 2017, their invitation was accepted and Active was pleased to be involved. Ventana's, the chosen venue, was not only the PERFECT venue to show off Atlanta with stunning panoramic rooftop views, but the venue is also an Active venue, so we were doubly excited to participate. 

The evening started with a posh cocktail reception and silent auction that would continue throughout the night. As attendees made their way to their tables for the ceremony, you could feel a collective sense of awe as everyone took in the lavish atmosphere with decor and finishings by AFR Furniture, BBJ Linens, Edge Design Group, Eventscapes Atlanta and Peachtree Tents and Events, along with Active's own ambient lighting, large screens, and audio production. 

Along with providing the audiovisual production, Active was also up for "Lighting Designer of Excellence" and WE WON!! Active was a nominee in this category in 2017 but did not take home the award. It was encouraging to win when the event was in our home city and Active President Matt Clouser accepted the award with gratitude to all the Wedding Professionals who reach out to Active to make their weddings and special events shine! 

The overall ceremony was wonderful with some heartfelt words by several key WIPA International members and a fantastic master of ceremonies, Bold Event's own Steve Bales, who kept the evening moving along with great interest. After all was said and done the guests went to an amazing rooftop after party with a Silent Disco provided by Lethal Rhythms. The disco was a BIG HIT and saw several of the Active team members breaking it down with wedding industry colleagues and new friends.

Big Shoutout to all the event sponsors!
