Wedding Showcases

We had a great time this year at the 3 wedding shows that we attended and we met some fabulous people! We started off in Raleigh at the Forever Bridal Expo, what a fun time! This was the largest show we have ever attended and we were the only “beach” venue there! You can see all about this show here, http://www.foreverbridal.net/

Our inspiration for our booth this year was “vintage beach”. We brought an antique bike with a bouquet in the basket, an old trunk, an old dresser, vintage suitcases and lots of driftwood! Everyone loved our driftwood candle holder on the coffee table! Personally, we really liked the rag garland on the backdrop!

The next show we did was the Crystal Coast Bridal Fair in Morehead City. This is a smaller, more local showcase to vendors in our area. This is a one day show at the Morehead City Civic Center. You can read up on that here, http://www.crystalcoastbridalfair.com/

Here are a few photos by local photographer Elizabeth Gillikin, of our beautiful booth!

Finally, we rounded out the show season with our favorite, The Crystal Coast Wedding Salon. We start off this show with a “tour” of one of our top venues, this year we chose A Pierless Vista. This house is STUNNING! You should come down and let us take you on a tour, it is brand new and very, very nice! It has a huge Oceanfront pool deck, direct access to the beach and lots of parking, perfect for a Seaside Wedding!

This is a one day show, starting with the tour followed by a the showcase at the Coral Bay Club and then ending with an after party at the Pine Knoll Shores Aquarium.

THE Color of 2014

Pinterest has come ALIVE with color! 2014 is set to be bold and bright in the wedding world! The pantone color of the year is…..orchid! And we are excited!! Blush, pale pinks and nudes are still set to be a popular choice, but we are loving the orchid palette! Here are a few of our favorite examples that we have stumbled upon on Pinterest! 

This reception setup is stunning! Love the little sparkle in the linen!

This bouquet is to die for!!

The subtle touch of color in the menu is a nice touch with the simple gold accent.

These details are all just so beautiful! We are very excited to see what our couple decide to do with this color palette!
