You know the saying "When it rains, it pours?" Well, that kind of happens with me and blogging. Either I'm scraping for something to share or I have a pile that's tipping over. I currently have a pile gathered, but I'm just going to pull a couple of things off the top and spread the rest out for later.
It's Wednesday, and I am just now getting the chance to report on an event I participated in a week ago. I was lucky enough to be a part of the White Luxury Event at Weddings 826 last week to celebrate their annual event and owner, Suzi's, 5th anniversary. Champagne and white Russians were being passed around while brides wandered around all of the beautiful items Weddings 826 has to offer and mingled with vendors sharing their bridal services.
Besides myself, there were some fantastic vendors in attendance that are worth mentioning and passing onto those around you....
-Chicago Avenue Salon- I met Sarah who is not only an incredibly kind and worldly individual, but is also the salons' lead Educator.
-Dilly Lily- I've been wanting to get in touch with this acclaimed florist for some time now, and it just so happens they provided all of the floral touches at the event. Gorgeous!
-Poetic Weddings- I was at a wedding this past weekend (more details about that shortly) and one thing was confirmed...a videographer is a must! Dad's home video skills just won't cut it.
-Sine Qua Non (SQN Special Events)- A hidden gem! With over 10 years of experience in the event planning industry, Beth Bernstein and her business partner have created some absolutely beautiful weddings worth taking a look at.
In other news, I've updated my website with Karen and Brandon's painting. You've seen the painting, and I've thanked Trish at Grapevine Floral many times, so now it's time to mention the photographer. Wes Craft at Modern Image Studio graciously provided me with some fantastic shots of Karen and Brandon on their big day. More of his work is likely going to show up on my website here and there, so keep a look out for some beautious images.
And finally, a Labor day weekend filled with love. My family drove down to St. Louis to attend the wedding of Dani and Michael.... very close family friends. This cute pair is a culinary delight: Michael is a sous chef and Dani is a baker. Together they are sweetness that was beautifully symbolized by their four tiered wedding cake that Dani had a hand in creating...lots of flowers were made.
