The Triangle NACE Awards Gala is one of ECE Raleigh’s favorite nights of the year. During this annual event, top event professionals from the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area come together for a night of food, fun and toasting to all the hard work and accomplishments from the past year.
As you can imagine, no party detail is ever left undone when this group gathers. The theme of this year’s gala was “Gone with the Wind” and featured sweetly Southern details like lace linens, hydrangeas and even antebellum-dressed reenactors. And, can we please talk about the food? Shrimp & grits. Fried green tomatoes. BBQ pork sliders. Let’s just say this born-and-bred Southern gent didn’t leave the party hungry!
The gilded Hill Room of the Carolina Inn provided a stunning backdrop to the evening’s festivities. We were honored to provide the entertainment for the event and couldn’t have been more excited to have Moments Notice on-site playing spectacular jazz standards.
Below are a few of the highlights from the gala. It truly was a spectacular night celebrating the successes of our event industry peers. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to work alongside such creative and talented professionals day in and day out. I am very humbled to be a charter member of this Triangle NACE chapter. It truly is one of the best in the entire nation! A special thanks to Robin Lin Photography for being the event photographer and sharing these great images.
