This past Sunday, we were honored to be part of the Destination: “I Do” Wedding Expo at the Scottish Rite Cathedral in New Castle, PA. It was such a whirlwind experience, with plenty of ups and downs including me leaving for New York for a week right before the show!
When we decided to do the wedding expo less than two months before the event date, we were not really prepared and naive enough to think we could get everything together in time. However, we never do anything small so the “let’s keep this simple, it’s our first show” soon turned into custom wood displays being made by our expert carpenter (a.k.a Ashley’s husband) and lot’s of hours spent on DIY projects. We are blessed to have the support and help of both of our husbands. The four of us spent an entire weekend together preparing the many parts of this display, among countless other hours. That’s major commitment and the men really do deserve a pat on the back.
At the show we met a lot of super cool, beautiful brides whose weddings we may be just as excited about as they are! It’s always fun to share our passion and talking about wedding plans with brides-to-be is definitely one of them. If you stopped by to say hi, thank you!
It was great being in a room surrounded by other great vendors who were happy to give us some advice and share their insights. We are already looking forward to planning our next wedding expo! We’ll absolutely let you guys know when and where, as soon as we know. In the meantime, keep a watch on our Etsy shop as we’ll be expanding our product line soon and as well as updating our website! So many exciting things to come, the future is pretty bright!
