Wow, what a fantastic weekend it was at the Southern Bridal Show over at the NC State Fairgrounds! It was great to get the chance to meet so many brides, grooms and their friends and family — and introduce them to Renee Sprink Photography.
When I first started thinking about my booth, I knew it had to be authentically ME. Southern, girly glam and fun. And pink, to match my new branding that will be debuting later this year. I told my friend Priscilla, with Orangerie Events, my overall vision and she immediately put pen to paper, started drawing and brought my vision to life. Right there. In black and white. Now, my ideas for the booth fell apart and changed several times over the course of the last couple of weeks, but when it came together in the end, I think it was exactly what I had envisioned. Maybe even more so!
After a lot of sweat, tears and heart, here is the finished product! Many, MANY thanks to Priscilla for helping me focus my vision and turn it into THIS!
So many people have asked where I got some of the items in my booth — the gorgeous girly table coverings were from CE Rentals and the beautiful, very last minute flowers were from my dear friend Shelley at Expressions of Love.
The totally awesome photo tree came from my dear friend Julie at Julie Liles Floral and Event Designs. The fun pillows and frilly ottomans were from Home Goods and the gorgeous white furniture is from my friends at Themeworks.
I got the sheer white drapes that pulled the gave the booth a cohesive look from Classic Party Rentals.
I could not have met with so many awesome brides throughout the day without the assistance of one of my 2010 brides-turned-dear-friend, Erin-Elizabeth! You totally rock! LOVE YOU!!
Many, many thanks to some special people, especially my husband Jeff and gal-pal Charlene, for helping me pull it all together at the last minute! I couldn’t have been more thrilled with it. A huge thank you to the other vendors who came up to offer compliments on it. It means more than you know! And to Dom and the Forever Bridal staff – holy wow! You guys are amazing!! You made my first wedding show an awesome experience!
