History of TWESA

    The Tennessee Wedding and Events Specialists Association (TWESA) was founded in 1992 as not-for-profit organization to bring a higher degree of professionalism to the wedding and event industry in Tennessee.  The founding members, met the first Tuesday of the month at Shoneys until they outgrew their host and move the meetings to area venues.  The plan was that such an organization would connect area wedding and event professionals, allowing for them to get to know each other as well as the unique aspects of each other’s specific profession.  In turn, these vendors would then feel comfortable recommending brides to the connection they made through TWESA, a practice that remains strong to this day.  Additionally, TWESA was responsible for planning and producing an area bridal show for nearly a decade in the 90′s.  This show would eventually be taken over by another company as it grew in size and beyond the what the organization could manage.

    In October 2012 the organization marked 20 years, celebrating in style at the Belle Meade Plantation.  The festive evening came together with the support of awesome TWESA members for a fun evening of mingling laughter, food and drinks in honor of members past, present and future.  Ace Photography captured the images below of our remarkable evening and all the fun that was had.  After all, parties are what we do best!

    Today, the organization continues to support Nashville’s wedding and event industry, the clients it serves and the professionals that make it great through networking, education and encouragement. We look forward to the next 20 years!
