Bridal Show: Forever Bridal Show
Canvas's: Simply Canvas
Flowers: Gallery Florist and Gifts

We made our first appearance at the Forever Bridal Show in Durham this past Sunday. What a wonderful show to participate in. The brides were amazing, friendly and fun to talk with. The show was a little smaller than Forever Bridal's larger shows and we were grateful as we got to spend some quality time with the brides that visited our booth.

Our booth was built by my husband Joe and my son Matt. They decided to make something rich, warm and inviting. Using a bit of my Italian heritage - they come up with the following:

These columns were refurbished by Matt - which took over four hours of preparation. Then Joe and Matt created a special top rail piece to content the two columns together. There we were able to create some spectacular way of hanging our images. Matt also made the backdrop that hangs behind all of the prints. It took him over 8 hours of pinning, two hours of sewing and yards upon yards of fabric to make. We hung some beautiful canvas's which included - two 16x20's, two 20x30's and three 20x24's. We were amazed at the fantastic quality of our canvas maker: Simply Canvas. They simply made us look fantastic! We also had many albums our for display among some beautiful rose petals from Gallery Florist and Gifts, Inc. From our custom designed Guest books, Coffee table books and our signature leather albums. It took over 3 months of preparation to prepare for everything we wanted to do for this show. Matt spent the day Saturday, while I was photographing a wedding, with Joe, prepping the booth for Sunday.

We also offered a drawing for a free engagement session, we were thrilled on how many brides entered.
