The Wedding Salon

On Monday a bunch of female wedding professionals headed to the big apple for a luxury wedding show, The Wedding Salon.  It was definitely a fun filled inspirational trip and a great time with a bunch of fantastic gals.  Meeting Sylvia Weinstock was most definitely the highlight.

I do have to say, a small part of me was a bit dissapointed in the show.  I guess I went into this with very high expectations, especially since I am eyeballs deep in planning a bridal event for Lancaster, and the show just left me feeling like I wanted more.  The tables that were on display were beautiful, big and lavish and food and drink were delish but it was just missing an intimacy that I crave at bridal events.  To meet and see the professionals up close and personal and not be bombarded by 500 other people at the same time.  The booths were soo small and all the vendors were cramed into a small area.  The programs didn't list what time the fashion show was and that really bothered me.

Oh and of course Colin Cowie was held up on his jet! We left not knowing if he even ever made it.  haha, that is ok..we'll forgive him.

Here are a few pictures I took from the show.  My pictures are nothing compared to the wonderful shots Leslie from Leslie Gilbert Photography and Jill Fanning from The Hamilton Ballroom .  Make sure to check out their blogs.
