DALLAS—The American Association of Certified Wedding Planners (AACWP) honored Hakim Sons Films with the prestigious Best Videographer Award at the My Favorite Vendor Awards 2013. This marks Hakim Sons Films third, consecutive win in the category. The AACWP recognizes the best vendors in categories ranging from lighting and floral design to photography and videography. Vendors are nominated and voted on by AACWP members only. The ceremony, which is known as the Oscars of the wedding industry, brings together friends, food and fun for a night celebrating everything that makes a wedding successful. The event took place at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science and featured Wolfgang Puck Catering.
Shezad Manjee, Chief Creative Officer, and Shannon Jenkins, Relationship Manager, accepted the award on behalf of Hakim Sons Films. Manjee gave a spirited speech about the company’s success in the industry. “It is a humbling experience to be nominated and selected by the most respected wedding planners in the city,” Manjee said. “We couldn’t have accomplished this three years in a row without our outstanding team that drives the studio forward.” For Jenkins, the event was all about networking and getting to know the industry. “Working so closely to our brides, it was great to see and connect with the wedding planners and vendors who make their day special,” Jenkins said. “I am excited our team was recognized, and am looking forward to the year to come.”
The AACWP also recognized one vendor who generated the most buzz on social media about the awards ceremony. Hakim Sons Films live tweeted the event and won a prize basket full of items from vendors. The basket included gifts from Neiman Marcus, the Adolphus Hotel, Panini Bakery & Cakes and many more. The evening ended with a private viewing of the museum as nominees and winners enjoyed dessert bites. With three awards under their belt, Hakim Sons Films is poised to continue providing unparalleled service to each and every client.
