Engaged in the City Wedding Soiree Recap!


We had a marvelous time at our Engaged in the City Wedding Soiree on Friday, April 19th,  at the Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza!  We all enjoyed an ongoing fashion show, cake tastings, and a bridal bouquet toss that included tons of awesome giveaway prizes.  We loved watching brides and their grooms mingle with some of New Mexico’s most elite wedding professionals!  A huge thank to our sponsors: Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza, King Mobile Music, Occasion Services & Events, M&J Bridal Boutique, Rodeo Plaza Flowers & Gifts, Kevin’s Photography and Celebrity China & Crystal.  We would like to also thank everyone who attended our Engaged in the City Wedding Soiree as these events would simply not be possible without you!  Watch the video of the event below.

  1. I received a gift certificate from elecore lighting at this event and it turned out not to be much of a gift certificate. The gift certificate states” 4 complimentary up lights to be used at your wedding or event” she then tells me that there are setup,delivery charge & tech on site fees TOTAL $60.00. As well as a 2 hour maximum after that there are fees. my problem is that the gift certificate didnt specify any of the extra fees she is tacking on. I didn’t get to meet with elecore due to her canceling on me the day before by email. In her email she asks for a time that I want them to set up when I had requested to see if the color of the lights would match my decor. I wasn’t going to commit to something I hadn’t seen before hand. Very disappointed bride, poor customer service and very vague information on the gift certificate. I suggest that in the future these gift certificated don’t omit any information so that the bride doesn’t think she got a prize when it’s really a scam.

    1. Veronica,
      Thank you for attending our Engaged in the City Wedding Soiree and sharing your frustration with us. We sincerely apologize for the issues that you are facing with this business and in redeeming your gift certificate. Although we have to trust in the businesses that participate that they will follow through with what they donate and commit as prizes, it’s ultimately their decision on how they want to handle the giveaways. Personally, I wouldn’t be adding on extra fees and charges for something that was a “giveaway”. This was the first time we have worked with Elecore Lighting as they are a new business to New Mexico, but rest assured they will not be participating in any PWG events or our guide in the near future. We would love to offer you one of our available 12 Months of Giveaways prizes as a consolation. Please review the list at the below link and let us know what you’d be interested in receiving:


      Just give us a call (505) 797-2749 when you’ve decided or email us at julianne.nichols@pwg.com so we can check to make sure that the prize you’d prefer is still available as well as receive your contact information to mail it to you. We give these prizes out every two weeks from April 2013-March 2014 so some prizes have already been redeemed but we still have a lot of them available.

      We hope to see you at our next event on Sunday, August 18th at the Route 66 Casino Hotel for our 4th Annual Bridal Brunch. We’re going to have an exciting fashion show, gourmet lunch, and lots of planning opportunities!
