Good morning, lovelies. It is a gorgeous Monday morning, and I cannot wait to get the week started! You are probably thinking, why I am so chipper and upbeat on this Monday morning? Well, I have some exciting news and thought it would be the best way to kick off the week. Yes, I know you are still living the weekend dream and probably are having a hard time getting going. But trust me when I say that you will have a brighter morning once you read on and see what I am so thrilled about. I am super excited about Bridal Hot List reaching the one year mark. I cannot believe that it has been a year already. It has been an incredible year full of some amazing achievements and it’s incredible to look back at the past year to see how far we have come.
We had a great time celebrating the one year anniversary of Bridal Hot List last weekend. All of our closest family, friends and readers came out to join in on the festivities, and we truly had a blast. Among those in attendance were a few of our contributors including Chelsea, Tania and Andrea, as well as many amazing vendors.
The event was very reflective of the site’s vision and style, with colors of soft pink, grey, and white – a very shabby chic look. The wonderful and ever-so-talented event planner, Erika Bowers, made my vision of all the ideas, thoughts, and pretty details into a perfect reality. I could not ask for a better event planner to help put this all together. As you know, I am huge lover of all things trending and our team is always in search of new and hot trends. So that is why I fell head over heels in love with the idea of a grand wall, all decorated with paper flowers. Can you say “WOW”? I mean, this wall is everything.
Among the many amazing and lovely details, we had a custom made backdrop for the photo booth. The backdrop was made of gorgeous satin ribbons. By now you know that I am obsessed with photo booths and all the fun details that comes with them. I fell in love with this idea of a ribbon backdrop, and when I mentioned this to Erika, she was on board right away. Of course, she was able to create a stunning custom-made backdrop, all dolled up and ready for action.
I was already happy and just smiling from cheek to cheek with all the beautiful details the party had. But what was the cherry on top? The romantic and whimsical bridal gown from R-Mine. This gown was recently featured on the cover of the Fall/Winter issue of California Wedding Day magazine. This gown was showcased live at the event by our gorgeous and ever-so-pretty model. Oh, and if that was not enough, the lovely and brilliantly talented designer, Armine, was present at the party. She is not only a beautiful designer, but a sweet and lovely gal. I feel so lucky to have met her and featured her gowns at BHL’s one year party.
This event was not only about celebrating BHL, but a celebration of amazing and talented wedding industry people. My passion of “all things wedding” is shared with my lovely wedding colleagues. I am happy and blessed to be among some of the most talented people this industry has to offer. I mean, could it be any better than this?
I have to take a pause here and give a HUGE thank you to my husband. He is my rock, my support, my business expert, and so much more. Without my husband, I would not have reached this one year mark, and BHL would not be where it is today. Thank you to my love!
The Bridal Hot List one-year anniversary milestone turned out to be a great event celebrated with the some of the greatest people around. I cannot wait to see what the next year holds. Trust me when I tell you that there are big things planned for Year Two of the BHL experience.
Thank you to all our readers. We sending you a whole lot of love!
Thank you to all the fabulous and talented vendors who made Bridal Hot List’s One year anniversary party an amazing night!
