Reflection from Discover Dunwoody’s Sales Manager

Treasure Wilson shares her perspective on the recent Atlanta Wedding Extravaganza. This event showcased the commitment of Discover Dunwoody to creating unforgettable wedding experiences:

“Being that Discover Dunwoody is a Destination Marketing Organization (DMO), I feel that it is important for couples to think of us as a vibrant palette that can bring their wedding vision to life. Just as artists use an array of colors to create a masterpiece, a DMO offers a spectrum of resources, complimentary services, and local insights that blend seamlessly to craft a wedding experience that is rich in authenticity, charm, and unforgettable moments.

My time at the Atlanta Wedding Extravaganza was nothing short of enchanting. Surrounded by love, inspiration, and incredible vendors, I was reminded of the magic that goes into creating dream weddings. From sharing insights about our beautiful hotels and venues to capturing joyful moments at our selfie station, every interaction was a celebration of love and the journey ahead."
