3rd Place at the Bridal Show

This may sound super silly, but I've never been the medal/trophy winner type (those went to my sisters). When we all got those little trophy's for "participation" in second grade just for showing up on the soccer field, I was a little TOO happy about getting that trophy. So, fast forward a lot of years, when I received an award for Best Booth Design at the Charlotte Bridal Showcase... you can just imagine my excitement in this moment! Granted I placed third overall, but still... first bridal show ever... third place... not too shabby :) I forgot my camera (insert gasp here), so the pics you'll see below are from my iPhone (minus the one's taken by Torrence)... but you get the idea. 

I had so much fun prepping for this show! My goal was to have my booth represent my work and my style. I love cabana black and white stripes, all things gold, and those little detail touches that scream fabulous! My biggest challenge I found was trying to figure out what wedding photos I wanted to showcase. Luckily, my main squeeze (i.e. Home Goods) had my back, and I was able to find these amazing frames to showcase multiple photos at one time. Again, I tried to stay true to me, but at the the same time make the booth both inviting and professional. To view the other booth winners click HERE. Enjoy!
