As some of you may know, I recently attended the Platinum Wedding Gala last Sunday held at the Conrad Hotel. I was truely honored to be hand-picked to be part of such a select group of vendors. This event featured displays by Indy’s top wedding pros, eye-popping table design by Lee Johnson and David Strohmeyer, and stunning Birnbaum & Bullock dresses (courtesy of The Wedding Studio).

I was able to snap a few photos on my trusty iPhone….

Setting up my booth has become a fine art. I’ve got it pretty much nailed down!

I created these little favor boxes especailly for this show. What a huge hit!
They were filled with peanut brittle, chocolate covered peanuts
and (my favorite) white chocolate covered pretzels.

They proved to be a nice “center piece” to my booth!

Of course, I had to display my awesome new business cards!
This photo doesn’t do them justice!

This stunning photo was taken by my good friend, Bob Ridge, from IndyVisual.
Of course, when you have such a beautiful location to photograph,
it’s hard to get anything less than perfection!





Just wanted to let you all know about the bridal show going on at the Scottish Rite Cathedral this weekend. Of course, I’ll be there! So, if you can make it, look for my booth…
