What a fabulous (and truly exhausting) day it has been! Today we participated in the Coastal Weddings Bridal Expo at the Pensacola Civic Center. As always, Brenda Carraway did a fantastic job and pulled everything together beautifully. We spent the entire day talking to such amazing brides and even one groom who was courageous enough to brave the crowds solo (you know who you are!).
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I have to thank all of you again for providing such a breath of fresh air. Every time I attend a show, I come away so inspired by all of the newly engaged couples and their touching stories. I wish we could clone ourselves and work with all of you.
And to our vendor friends, it was so great to see all of you today. I'm thrilled that I finally got to meet the amazing Patsy Brown! If you haven't yet, check out her blog at http://patsybrown.blogspot.com/ to get to know her. Photogs Rae & Wes Leytham were such a highlight to the day (as always) and the ever talented Rick Schamberger unveiled a special image that is near and dear to our hearts. Meg Baisden delivered a disk of pictures that we're all dying to devour! Randall's Formal wear (don't you just love Robert?) and The Bridal Loft put on a spectacular fashion show. Chef Lee from eat! amazed all of us as he carved an ice sculpture before our eyes. To be honest, I don't know who had more fun...the brides who were excited about planning their big day, or all of us dorky vendors who get such a thrill out of catching up with each other!
All in all, it was a great day and I cannot wait to get started on designs for some of the incredible brides and grooms that we met today. Congratulations to all and may your wedding day be Pure Bliss!
