On Saturday 27 February 2016, we were invited to participate in the Local Love Pop Up event, as the exclusive wedding planner, alongside some of Edmonton’s boutique wedding vendors. The event provided local brides with the opportunity to meet a variety of vendors in an intimate setting. As a vendor, I greatly enjoyed being able to engage with brides and learn about their wedding inspirations in an informal environment. Unlike larger format shows — which, in my experience, can be overwhelming — the pop up style event lent itself to being a space where brides could feel comfortable and relaxed, leaving their wedding worries behind them.
Another benefit of attending the event was the opportunity to win one of a number of remarkable giveaways from participating vendors and sponsors, including a gift certificate to Delica Bridal (Valued at $1,000), dancing shoes from Rescue Flats (Valued at $1,250), and a Mini Engagement Session + Engagement Shoot Styling & Design from High Culture: Styling & Design + Jill Coursen Photography (Valued at $850).
Congratulations to all of the brides who attended Local Love — I’m looking forward to the opportunity to work with you and wish all of you the best in your wedding planning!
