I was lucky enough to be a vendor at the Sheraton Valley Forge's Bridal Event last Sunday. Over 200 people attended the event, which was followed by a bridal runway show. Most of the brides who attended are getting married in 2017 and already had their venue booked. They came to the show to find other amazing vendors, like photographers, DJ's, and florists. Below are some of the pictures I snapped.
Amanda and Jake were recently married and celebrated their reception at La Massaria at Bella Vista in Gilbertsville. This was such a fun bridal party! Amanda looked absolutely beautiful and was smiling from ear to ear the entire day. The pictures speak for themselves about what a fun day this was! (Side note: I am completely obsessed with their cake topper!)

Rebecca and Brendan were married on January 2nd in what can only be described as a Winter Wonderland Wedding. They had a whirlwind courtship, an engagement in Ireland, and a Philadelphia-themed bridal shower, bachelorette party, and wedding. The details of this wedding truly captured the couples personality, love for their city, and love of faith, family, and friends.
The couple was married in St. Dorothy Church, stopped at the Art Museum for some pictures, then headed over to the Ballroom at the Ben for their reception.
Just to show how important family and tradition are to this couple: Rebecca's engagement ring and band are from Sydney Rosen in Jeweler's Row. Her dad purchased her mother's ring there 35 years (almost to the day) before Brendan purchased hers. The jeweler, knowing this, rushed to make sure the ring was ready before they headed to Ireland, where Brendan would later propose.
Bridal gown is Watters, bridesmaids wore Jim Hjelm

If you know me, then you know I LOVE The Merion! It's one of the most beautiful venues in Southern New Jersey. So of course I jumped at the chance to be a vendor this past week at The Bridal Showcase hosted by DJ's Available. (By the way- I HIGHLY recommend DJ's Available for your upcoming wedding or event! Seriously, they are the nicest people to deal with!)
It was nice to meet some vendors and talk to other professionals in the industry. Couples got to experience a great bridal show, then went upstairs for a fashion show by Rena Ella Couture Bridal and Formal Expressions Tuxedos. I snapped a few pictures on my phone- they didn't turn out great but you get the idea!
I was lucky enough to attend Philadelphia Wedding Magazine's Launch Party for their Spring/Summer 2016 issue. It was held this past Thursday at the Philadelphia Cricket Club, which is an amazing venue for any couples who are considering getting married there! I took my good friend Rachel, who also helps me with larger weddings. I got to meet several vendors that I deal with over the phone or through email, so it was nice to put a face with a name. And the new issue is amazing- make sure to check it out! Below are some of the pictures I snapped with my phone. #PhilaLaunchParty #PhilaWeddingLaunch
