The Wedding Salon Luxury Bridal Show


002[1]


 


Recently Candice and I attended The Wedding Salon’s Luxury Bridal Show complete with an exclusive Vera Wang Fashion Show, complimentary hair & beauty consultations and vendors ranging from HPNOTIQ to the Barbados Tourism Authority.


 


Upon entering, we were greeted by an elaborate floral design coincidentally by a florist we often work with, A Touch of Elegance. While admiring her work and sipping champagne, a newspaper photographer snapped a picture of Candice and I informing us it would be printed in the Courier Newspaper ~ and you know how we love press!  As we did a circle around the room, we saw a lot of familiar faces.  Of course when visiting these events we always like to walk away with one piece of knowledge or one idea to pass on to our clients.  One of these new unique ideas we found was Love Print, maker of personalized fingerprint jewelry.  Check out Camille and her creations at www.loveprintjewelry.com.


 



A highlight of our night was the opportunity to network with others in the industry, including our friend Molly Tully, editor of NJBride Magazine  We chatted about the vendors in attendance and shared thoughts on what is hot now in the market.  We were also excited to get some copies of the latest Magazine which features one of our recent couples, Jaime & Jason.   



Overall it was a productive night, with the perfect ending ~ before leaving we of course had to stop by The Melting Pot’s table for some chocolate-dipped strawberries.  Mmmmmm.


 


All the best,


 


Nicole
