Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) June 17, 2008
Laurie Morgan, publisher of The Wedding & Special Event Yellow Pages (http://www.weddingyellow.com) was named "2007 Associate Member of the Year" by the Association for Wedding Professionals (http://www.afwpi.com). Morgan and her popular wedding directory and planning tool were similarly honored in 2005.
Presented in a ceremony earlier this year in Sacramento, the award recognizes Morgan and her publication for creating an effective promotional avenue for wedding vendors, and for good business practices and professional ethics.
The Wedding & Special Event Yellow Pages is a distinctive print publication and web site that offers brides a simpler way to shop for their weddings, and, by extension, offers wedding vendors a highly effective means of promotion. Introduced in Sacramento in 2003, The Wedding & Special Event Yellow Pages provides wedding planning information for Greater Sacramento, the Bay Area and the Central Valley in California, and has announced that a new edition for the Greater Hampton Roads area of Virginia will debut later this year.
Said Laurie Morgan, "There's no greater honor than to be recognized by the community we serve. Of course, now we're motivated to try even harder in the future to deliver the most useful tool possible for brides -- because that's what makes our product work for the wedding vendors who advertise with us."
