The "before" picture of the Armory
There's so much to share today--I did a walk-through of the Armory with my team and we discussed the specifics for transforming the space for my Celebrations party. It's so exciting to walk into a raw space and instantly begin to see how my vision will come to life. Not only did I do a walk-through with my own production team, but I also talked to some of the vendors I'll be working with to help me produce the event.
Today, I talked with Ira Levy of Levy Lighting to discuss the special lighting techniques we'll be doing for the event and Darren Olarsch of On the Move Events to discuss the entertainment for my party (including the special surprise appearance by a singer or band I have planned!). I've worked with both people for years, including my past book launches.
I also interviewed both Ira and Darren on their expertise and experience in the industry to share with you on the blog. They shared some really great info and gave some insights into what we've planned for the party. So, stay tuned for tomorrow when I get the first interview up.
Later this week, I'll be meeting with Olivier Cheng (who will be catering the party) and the fabulous Marcy Blum, event planner extraordinaire, to discuss logistics. I'll have interviews and behind the scenes chats with them too.
What is one behind the scenes task you're interested in knowing more about? Let me know and maybe I'll share the answer...
