What a fantastic weekend!
Ok, maybe it was two weekends ago. But what can we say? We are still crooning over here about the wonderful show.
All the cool kids have a booth the Bridal Spectacular, but our debut year in 2012 was anything but cool. And when I say not cool, I mean safety-scissors-double-sided-sticky-tape-Velcro not cool. It blows my mind how sexy these designers can make 10 cubic feet look like, and we had anything but swagger with our sad little booth our first year. The only good thing about our pathetic set up last year was that designer Deborah James of The Pin Up Bride took pity on us and designed our booth with the help of Dr. Teresa Meli, florist at Floral Couture.
(Why’s a doctor doing flowers you say? Oh that’s because she’s got a doctorate in conducting. She’s a bad-ass. We aren’t worthy.)
BEFORE- oh the horror!!!
AFTER- I’m bringing sexy back…
sloppy wet kisses go out to our girl Alicia at Orange Soda Photo for the images – we are surprised the first one didn’t crack her lens
Of course, it takes a whole lotta people to clean up the HOT MESS that we were from last year! That uber swanky fuschia uplighting in the background? Yea, the courtesy of our most epic dude Kevin Cordova of LED UNplugged. That man lights up our world! Literally! Between Deborah, Teresa, Julie (also at Floral Couture, and super sassy) and Kevin, we won the Dazzler Award for having a posh booth! Yes, there was wine and chocolate involved in the celebration.
The icing on the proverbial cake was…wait for it… making the cover of the latest edition of Bridal Spectacular! For the third year in a row!! Can I get a wwhaatt whhhaatt?!?! For the past three years, Bridal Spectacular has organized photoshoots for their upcoming spreads in the publication. Photographers, florists, stationary, gowns…and hair and makeup are all involved. Once all the submissions come back, they go into the issue, but one image is always chosen for the cover. Hayley’s trendy fishtail braids and Bianca’s dreamy makeup must’ve made some hearts flutter, and we are just ticked pink to have our work featured on the cover! Props to sweet Lorenz over at Lorenz Photo for capturing the cover-shot!!
Yea, we’ve been riding the high for as long as we could milk it. Oh, and if you didn’t make it, no worries! You can get in on some of the pretty action by booking us before Feb 13th for your upcoming wedding- 10% off your package, to be exact!
