Circle of Events Casting Call....

Sheng Moua Productions (SMP) is honored to be working with Circle of Events as the main Casting Director and Fashion Director for their first Ad Campaign.  Susan Vang-Xiong is the owner and founder of Circle of Events.  Susan is a wedding and event planner, among a great vast of other things she does for the community. Not only is she great at what she does, but she pours her heart into anything she touches, creating your ultimate fantasy weddings.  Passion is her driver and the outcome of Circle of Events is proof of how this lovely lady has made her dream come true. Susan has a way of making every bride feel as if she's on top of the world. This is the bride's greatest moment and she understands how important this day is. She goes over and beyond and puts her personal touches on everything to ensure the bride has the most unique and one of a kind experience ever. Although COE is based out of the Central Valley, Susan is also a destination wedding planner. She will travel anywhere her bride and groom needs her.   

We are going to be casting for the very first Circle of Events (COE) wedding ensemble.  You will be the face(s) of COE representing the everyday American bridal party.  The campaign will be used for the website and several other promotional purposes.
