The presentation covered over 15 of the top trends for the next wedding season and I know each local vendor here can definitely use this information in their own businesses,” sponsor and Garrett County Wedding Professionals lead Jessica Fike said.

The event was also sponsored by Deep Creek Cakes, Goehringer’s Catering, Archie’s Barbeque and Everline DJ Services.
