Surviving the Unknown

We hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy during these uncertain times. In light of everything that has happened within the last couple of weeks we, along with Kis Cubed Events, Vermilion Weddings, Indian Weddings Buzz and KI Weddings, wanted to put together a webinar to help with everyones questions and concerns about what to do now that everything has been put on hold. Below is a recap of the 1st of many Zoom webinars we are producing entitled, “Surviving the Unknown”.
