Bride Choice Winners 2013 -- Wedding Wire!

I'm basically bumming around the different parts of the world right now and wound up on a small island in the South of New Zealand called Nelson. I took a bit of time getting caught up on the time zone change and woke up today realizing it was mid-afternoon at home in Edmonton where my staff was hard at work.

How unfair of me I suppose...

I awoke wanting to do something different so I hiked up a mountain outside the house I'm renting. It was about 5km total, but some the steepest terrain I'd ever gone up and down. It was a nice workout to start my day. I came home, logged on to get a little work done only to see the NHL was back!

I answered a few emails, but found myself still full of energy and as a result decided to walk some more, so I took my wife and kids downtown in Nelson for another 2 km walk through the core of the city. The day was quite peaceful until my three year old son stepped on a bee and got his first bee sting. That wasn't so nice...

But the day ended extremely pleasantly as I hopped back onto my laptop to do a little work only to have received an email that our company, Equinox Sound & Entertainment Inc. -- an Edmonton based company that offers DJ, photography and video -- had won the Bride's Choice Award for 2013 on Wedding Wire's National website!

It's not a Nobel Prize or a million dollars, but its a nice little high-five to my hard working staff who make our company thrive and grow each year. It's important to us to keep our clients happy. It's why at the start of each year, I take off for a while to re-energize after a long wedding and holiday season. It's why we work so hard for the rest of the season to go above and beyond for our clients.

It's not important to us that we be recognized, but it's a nice positive reward and it goes a long way to show potential future clients that they can count on us. So what did we win?

Wedding Wire describes it as the following:

"Professionals across 20 service categories, from wedding venues to wedding photographers, are recognized based on their overall achievements throughout the previous year. The recipients represent the top five percent of the WeddingWire local vendor community, comprised of over 200,000 Wedding Professionals throughout the United States, Canada and abroad. Unlike many other industry awards, which are selected by the organization, the WeddingWire Bride’s Choice Awards™ are awarded solely based on the reviews from past clients on WeddingWire, the nation’s largest wedding review website, featuring over one million newlywed reviews"

This is a great honor for us and we're excited to be recognized for the hard work. 

If you are getting married in Edmonton this year and need an Edmonton DJ, Edmonton photographer or Edmonton video service, wouldn't you like to be able to say among thousands of vendors, you were able to hire a service recognized as simply the best as voted by thousands of brides?
