Tonia Adleta, PBC Owner, Lead Designer and Senior Consultant at Aribella Events will cover:

If you've been burning the candle at both ends in an effort to make it all happen (and who among us hasn't?), make it a priority to attend this session.  How do you plan your clients' weddings and have any sort of life outside of the industry - especially if you're still working for someone else to pay the bills?  You're not alone - most successful business owners were once at the same place of transition you're in now.  Learn from their experiences and their advice.


Tonia Adleta is "start-up with fourteen years of experience." Launching her first wedding planning company as a junior in college, she planned the weddings of Miss Oklahoma and hre runner-up before returning to the East Coast to plan corporate events around the country for Fox Family Channel (now ABC Family.) A few moves, two kids, and many twists and turns later, Tonia has happily found her home in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area as the owner, lead planner and designer of Aribella Events.
