Eastland Park Hotel Bridal Show

I think the last Bridal show I attended was when I was planning my own wedding. Even though it was over 10 years ago, I still remember the excitement and anticipation of planning all the details of our celebration! Surprisingly, we've never ventured into the realm of displaying our work at a Bridal show. I've heard mixed reviews from brides and colleagues as to how they feel about attending and participating, so, it's made me shy away from the venue altogether. But... when Kimberly Finch contacted us to take part in the Eastland Park Hotel show taking place this Saturday, November 21st, I thought perhaps, it would be a great opportunity to showcase some of our work and meet some of the many couples just starting out on the wedding planning journey! The event takes place from 3-6pm and I hope you'll stop by and say 'hello'! We'd love to see you and hear about your plans and ideas for your own celebration!

We will have some small and highly useful favors available for you to take and for the first 2 people to mention our blog, we'll give you a silk bound, Cypress mini album. They're great for creating your own photo album, or to use as a guest book!

We hope to see you there!

People are talking...

I know I've been a terrible blogger over the last several weeks! It's certainly not for lack of work. I have 4 more weddings to update as well as several portrait sessions! In my effort to focus on getting my editing done in a timely fashion - as well as care for my little ones, the blog has suffered from my reprieve. Many apologies!! :(

A few weeks ago, we received a note from one of our favorite wedding coordinators, Meaghan Gilpatrick, that she had submitted one of our weddings to the Style Me Pretty blog... and, it was published! We worked with Meaghan in Georgetown this August at Emily and Mario's wedding. What an amazing day they had! I can't say enough about what incredible attention to detail Meaghan put in to this celebration. Emily and her Mom had high aspirations and a definite style they wanted out of the day and everything came together flawlessly. From the suprise boat entrance to the Maine fog rolling in on a cool August evening, it was a perfect day from start to finish! We're so happy for Emily and Mario, so honored to have been a part of their day and huge kudos to Meaghan at Maine Seasons Events for pulling off such a breathtaking wedding!! Here's just a glimpse of some of the details and unique touches that made this day so special... and you can check out the Style Me Pretty blog for additional photos!
