Photo Gallery | Mardi Gras comes to the Delta King in Old Sacramento

The Association for Wedding Professionals International (AFWPI) got together to talk shop, have fun and celebrate Fat Tuesday, the last day of Mardi Gras.  The event was held March 4,Tuesday night aboard the Delta King in Old Sacramento.  The Delta King was undoubtedly picked, because it's a great venue for weddings.  The food, music, photography and flowers were all done by wedding professionals.

News10 My Neighborhood contributor Julia Markel was one of the hosts of the evening, and is AFWPI Vice President, author of  "More than Just a Pretty Booth: The Complete Guide to Get More Bookings from Bridal Shows" and Co-owner of MarNel Productions Bridal Expo.

AfWPi was formed in the mid 90s to assist, promote and bring together wedding professionals of all types.  We offer a social, fun atmosphere for networking which allows members to really get aquainted,  and that results in better referrals.  We also offer several benefits, marketing avenues and education.  And we are a central resource for wedding professionals so we can connect them easily to whatever or whomever they are seeking.  Although we started and are strongest in the Sacramento area, we are an international organization with members in 30 different countries. We are known as "the Heart of the Wedding Industry."
