NACE Detroit's annual Wedding Trends will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Bloomfield Hills, (formerly the Kingsley) Detroit's hottest new venue! Tickets will go fast and are anticipated to sell out once again this year, so don't wait - get yours today!


Detroit welcomes Terrica Skaggs as our guest speaker this year! Terrica has been creating exquisite weddings and events in the Golden Isles area (Georgia) for the past fourteen years. Specializing in modern Southern weddings, she believes in creating custom experiences inspired by her clients’ love stories while infusing technology and efficiency. A contributing board member of the North American Academy of Wedding and Event Planning, Terrica’s weddings and expertise have been featured in The Knot, Reader’s Digest, Martha Stewart Weddings, HLN tv,  Style Me Pretty  and a host of others.

In addition to leading a rockstar team at her planning and design firm, she also owns The White Lounge— a contemporary wedding planning studio for couples and wedding professionals. A sampling of her work can be found on her website, Cocktails and Details. A wave maker nominated for  Honeybook’s 20 on the Rise, she launched her new wedding industry education system, “Run the World" in Winter 2018. Terrica is an ardent educator of those in the wedding industry, believing in the "each one, teach one" mindset.   As an avid lover of cake and champagne, you'll find her at home in the Golden Isles with her four “fabutots”, and when not entertaining family and friends, she’s frequently binging on RuPaul’s Drag Race and Game of Thrones.
