I often think back to where I was or what I was doing a year ago, do you ever do that? I can’t believe how much life has changed for me in the last year; Lee is already a year old, John and I have been married over 3 years and my business is booming! Pinch pinch, is it real? Dawn and I have been a part of so many beautiful weddings, all of them memorable for different reasons. Every time we add a new bride to the schedule I feel like we have made a new friend! I love the feeling I get welcoming blushing brides and families into our new consultation space, the ideas start flowing right away for everyone. With this new space pretty much finished up, we just had to plan a big party to celebrate and what better way to do it than invite some other great local professionals and tons of brides?!?! A ginormous thank you to all of the talented and friendly vendors and all of the excited and supportive brides/friends/family that came out for the big night! If you missed the fun, let me fill you in…
Rental City provided the beautiful tent, linens, tables, chairs, china – the works for us! They have EVERYTHING you could ever want for your event, be sure to give Nandi a call!
Inside the shop we had our consult space all done up with many bouquets, centerpiece rentals and albums for inspiration.
All of our ladies lined up ready for the party…
I am thinking that our centerpiece inspiration table is going to need another table, there are just too many options!
The bride wall of fame gets lots of rave reviews!
These chairs are the perfect place to sit and relax while we help you with your flower order!
The beautiful and talented ladies of Salon Nicole were busy doing hair and makeup most of the night!
Bella Limo of Elmer came too!
Rental City with their impressive array of rentals!
Stephen from The Sweet Life Bakery showed off some tasty and trendy sweets!
Sarah had lots of lia sophia jewelry for all to admire.
An overflowing gift basket from Auburn Road Vineyards for a lucky winner!
Auburn Road Vineyards provided samples of their sparkling wine. Located in Pilesgrove, they host many events including showers and receptions!
Maria from Designed by M.E. stationary had an amazing collection of stationary samples! Her work is detailed, classy, thoughtful and of course she was the sweetest person to work with. I am so happy Irene sent me to her!
And of course the lovely Tina of Tina Jay Photography came too! Her new albums were a hit!
In the center of the tent, we hung our own vintage chandelier dripping with roses and crystals, I fell in love!! I can just see someone getting married under it, hanging so romantic in a tree or something. LOVE.
The hot centerpiece of the show was our peacock inspired creation in our bell vase. Hydrangeas, dahlias, callas and dendrobium orchids complimented the hues of the feather perfectly!
Just loved the shimmer of this tablecloth from Rental City! And you can kinda see the hanging feather in the bottom of the bell vase too…
More brides should do napkin details, it ties it all together!
Ohhh Casey, this one is for you!
Again, the linen makes this black and white tablescape complete! And who says yellow football mums are old news?
Our new black vases popped with yellow flowers and feather accents.
LOVE the linen!
Our new lanterns (rental) with a lush floral ring of coffee break and quick sand roses…I want to get married again (same guy) and do this! I also think these would be cute hanging in a tent with LED pillar candles!
Loved the color combo of this one!
Dear Free Spirit Rose, you make my job so easy and fun. Love, Mary
Pink tinted water in our chic vase with gold manzanita, pink crystals and orchids….pretty!!
A close up…
Another cute cocktail table arrangement featuring our picture vase with a moody mix of purple carns and roses. Vintage mercury glass votives hold a few candles and a few roses to extend the design.
Every time I walk by our new sign, I feel so proud!
Again, thank you to everyone who helped make this event a success (and thanks to Tina for sending me these pics)! It sure was a family affair, Mom, Dad and our other sister all came to help us out too. Maybe next year we will have Michelle from All Things Beautiful do most of the planning….and we can just show up We are thinking of adding a bridal salon and live music next year, so that will be something else to look forward to. Now, I better get back to my brides…the phone has been ringing off the hook the whole time I have been blogging!
