Slow as a snail...yes, this is me......but we've had a killer month and although it is wrapping up, we still have some clients coming up that needed help too!
Anyway, I promised you photos of the bridal show we participated in at the beautiful Weston Centre and our great hostess and hosts - Ms. Betty Cervera (Weston Centre) and Eric Holtz (Holtz Entertainment) and Elliott Hamilton (Elliott Hamilton Photography).
Our "season" was Autumn (one of my faves!)......and we decided to stay true to tradition, but add a few surprise elements! Our colors: orange, burnt orange, plum, eggplant, olive green, opalescent and chocolate sheers, old gold, deep red and burgundy. Oh my goodness!
Let me tell you who were the stand outs in our "booth!"
Not in any particular order and most of these vendors (in fact, I believe all) are on the www.sanantonioweddings.com website:
Katie Rider, "announcing...the celebrations of your life" (Stationery!) katie pulled together some really chic "paint chip" business card give aways for us and helped me with some really yummy ferrero rocher filled chocolate organza purse favors! (I kept a few for later use!)
Ambiance Event Design (Gene Weston and Tony Ferro) -These two designed some more than beautiful bouquets for our models, and Tony handpainted a forest scene to compliment the handmade chuppa he also created, painted, and then they decided to add a floral "chandalier" just for fun! The tablescape was a twist on a Preston Bailey design we all fell in love with, but definitely with Tony/Gene's name all over it! They also created (with a bit of input from moi!) a lounge area to end all lounge areas! We couldn't keep people out of it, so.......we made them stay and sign contracts with us! lol
Linens: Raemie Jones co-owner of Cover That Up! supplied all of our linens and they were (to say the least) fantabulous!!! Oh my gosh, the colors, the textures....I could shop there all day long and they have a warehouse that seems never ending....so, believe me, I shopped!
Sweets: Our cakes/cupcakes/and halloween treats were all supplied by Sweet Traditions! (owner Lynda Stansberry) and her tables looked awesome! (to say the cupcakes were great is an understatement!)
Table settings: A Need for Place Settings (Enid Shoquist) owner supplied our crystal, the beautiful opalescent china and the flatware. It was soooo beautiful.
Catering: World Cuisine (by Azuca) did the wonderful seafood martini bar....oh my gosh, it was all I could do to stay away from their table.....but they were there to sell to clients and kept shooing me away......I don't even like seafood! (guess I was wrong!)
The Chuppa from afar..
