Last night The Bridal Studio hosted a “Vendor Appreciation Night”. It was such a great mix of local vendors: established, brand-new, and everything in between. Some of my favorite people were there, from other coordinators to florists to venue reps and more. The whole night reaffirmed for me one of the main reasons why I love doing what I do: the people. I am so lucky to get to work with such a great group of fun, creative people on a regular basis. I love meeting new vendors and learning about their talents so that I can share them with my clients!
Jeffrey Martin from le sucre bakery spoiled us with tons of samples of his delicious cakes. My favorite was the raspberry but that is because I am raspberry-filling-obsessed. The brown-sugar walnut cake was also to-die-for. He brought in pictures of some of his designs– he comes from a graphic design background, so all of his cakes are just gorgeous! Love them. If you are around Hyde Park today (and maybe tomorrow?) he will have some samples at Poeme.
Jason Merkt from Iconography was also there, he is a newer videographer in town who does amazing work. I am very excited to work with him on a wedding I have coming up in just a few weeks. Check out his website (click on “Iconography” above) to see some of his demos!
Amy Storer was also in attendance. She is the founder, editor and publisher of CincyChic.com, the only online lifestyle publication for women in the Greater Cincinnati area. It was so fun to hear her story of how she got started and how succesful CincyChic has become! Plus, we got to bond over our obsession with Google Analytics. If you don’t already subscribe to CincyChic, go to their website and sign-up! Each week’s issue has tons of great articles, information on local events, and information and offers from local businesses.
In addition to the great vendors I get to work with, I absolutely adore my clients. Every one is so unique and I love working with them to bring their individual personalities and styles into their event. Events take place in celebration – in celebration of love, of achievement, of a cause, of a person, the list goes on. Being able to take part in that spirit of celebration with so many different people is totally and completely satisfying, and is why I love what I do!
