This special edition of Meet the Masters takes us to Philadelphia where
we talk with five top wedding experts in the City of Brotherly Love. 
Philadelphia is home to many cultural institutions, historical
attractions, shopping, athletic and leisure activities. A weekend full
of memories awaits.

Our first stop takes us to the offices of
Philadelpia Magazine’s Elegant Wedding where we sat down with Editor
Carrie Denny.  Carrie talks about the 10th anniversary issue of the
magazine.   She discusses some of the wonderful landmark venues to have
wedding receptions in Philadelphia.  We also talk about some of the
other articles in the issue including great photo locations and how to
choose flowers for day and night weddings.

Next we talk with
Daniel Briones Director of Catering at The Four Seasons Hotel.  Daniel
shares his years of wedding experience and gives his advice on starting
the wedding planning process.  We talk about current table designs and
some unique food choices for cocktail receptions.  The Four Seasons
Hotel Philadelphia is a beautiful setting to have an outdoor wedding
ceremony in Center City Philadelphia.

Music is a critical
component of any wedding celebration.  That is why we took the time to
talk with Carmen Tomassetti of CTO World Entertainment Productions at
his studio in Manayunk, PA.  Carmen, CEO, Event Music Producer, shared
valuable information on making the right choices when booking music for
your wedding.  We dispell some of the myths concerning what you need
musically for your wedding.

Our next stop was the magnificent
Ritz-Carlton Hotel right in the center of Philadelphia. The
Ritz-Carlton is a breathtaking building that is a replica of the
Pantheon in Rome.  We had a chance to speak with Director of Public
Relations Molly Rothgery who tells us about creating a custom-designed
city wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia.  A Ritz-Carlton wedding
is an experience you will never forget.

Finally we sit down with
one of the top wedding planners in the Philadelphia area. Mark
Kingsdorf of The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants has years of
experience planning weddings.  Having started in the business as a chef
Mark has a unique perspective on planning a successful wedding.  Mark
is a featured consultant on The Style Network’s hot wedding show Whose Wedding is it Anyway?.  Mark
is an expert at dealing with wedding planning pressures.  He shares
some of the best wedding advice I have heard recently.  He also talks
about his involvement with a special program called "Let Them Eat
Cake", a wedding cake competition that raises money for breast cancer
research.

This is the first of many special editions that will
focus on regional wedding experts.  If you would like your city
