So you think you have it figured out.
Today I had the pleasure of attending Biz Bash in the city ( NYC). For those not familiar with Biz Bash, it is a trade show full or vendors in all areas catering to the special events arena. Vendors in linen, entertainment, catering, drapery…you name it, it was well represented. In addition, there are several seminars and awards specials. Unfortunately my time only allowed for me to attend the trade show but I am so glad I did or else I would have missed these:
SO many awesome vendors now I have the task of sitting down and sorting through all the pamphlets, business cards and magazines… FUN!
Attention Brides…if you are in the NYC area here is a awesome event for you to check out THIS WEEKEND! The event is called Wedding Crashers and it features loads of vendors from my very own Brooklyn. Vendors, from photographers,, videographers, caterers and stationers and the list goes on. The event will be held from 11:00am to 4:00pm at the super cool The Bell House followed by an after party and one of my favorite Brooklyn venues The Green Building.
Earlier this year I had the pleasure of working with For The Modern Bride on a customized logo for a June wedding. This time around, when the need for another logo presented itself, they were the first people I thought of to create a fun elegant logo for a couple having an elegant tropical wedding. And again…they did NOT disappoint. Take a look at the logo or The Modern Bride created for an island stylee wedding:
The bride and groom are ecstatic and can’t wait to exchange vows on the beautiful island of Jamaica, WI on December 26, 2009.
On Saturday (6/20/09) I had the pleasure of coordinating the wedding reception for a fabulous couple, Mr. and Mrs. Steve & Carolyn Simpson. The couple previously exchanged vows in Hawaii on May 18th, 2009 and wanted to celebrate with friends and family in a Hawaiian Casual reception in Morehead City, North Carolina.
Everything was Hawaiian inspired, from the florals, to the music right down to the food. I was overjoyed to be surrounded by a wonderful couple, a welcoming breeze and a sea of floral print shirts. I was only too honored to be apart of this wonderful celebration.
Below are a few pictures from last weekend’s event (and the ceremony in Hawaii):
In case you are looking for me between the hours of 5pm and 8pm on Monday June 8, 2009 I will be at the “Taste of Times Square” event to be held on W46th Street between Broadway and Ninth Avenue. This event will feature dishes from some of NY’s top restaurants for a fraction of the cost. The food coupled with musical entertainment is a recipe for success
COUPLES: This is an awesome opportunity to samples an array of some of NY’s finest dishes. Dishes that you may not have had the opportunity to sample before. And the ones you really love, ask your catering manager to incorporate into your wedding. This is also an opportunity to find a restaurant to satisfy your pallet at a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or engagement party. Take a look at the participating restaurants:

I am currently working on an event and was in desperate need of a fun, funky and yet classic logo for the happy couple. Luckily for me I stumbled upon, For The Modern Bride and was intrigued by what I saw. From the beginning they were very responsive, extremely creative and offered just what I was looking for. Needless to say, I placed my order and viola…
