I was lucky enough to be the master of ceremonies at the Illinois and Wisconsin Galaxy International Pageants held in the spectacular Bridal Elegance runway. Director Stephanie Piller has long been a friend of the PageantCast (nearly since we started the show) and it was a thrill to be able to pitch in for the event.
There was a wonderful group of contestants…each of which was worthy of the crown. After phases of competition including interview, photogenic, swimsuit, fashion and evening gown, the judges made their decisions and we were treated to a wonderful group of new pageant titleholders.
