Vintage Charm

Just last weekend I participated in a bridal show at the Salisbury House in Des Moines. What a fantastic place to be! It was such a privilege to be a part of the Preferred Bridal show. I love that each event they do is in a unique and gorgeous venue, and what a way for them to show off these great places to new brides! I hope that many of you were able to come, it was such a great time and I thoroughly enjoyed talking to all of you who did come out to the show! Despite the icky weather!

I was extremely lucky to have my mother in town to help me out for the weekend, she was such a great assistant! Ironing veils, talking to brides, and helping me load and unload all of my things! Wish I had her around more often!

I was also very fortunate to take part in the photo shoot that occurred after the show had ended. A couple of photographers signed up to broaden their portfolio by taking photos around the house. I provided two of my dress designs to be used in the set. It was such a blast to work with the photographer and to see my gowns in a whole new setting! Candice Smith Photography really did a wonderful job of capturing the look of the gowns as well as the house and what a phenomenal ending to the day! It was also so great to be able to see and visit areas of the house that I've never been to. Like the library! A room that's normally closed to visitors, but a gorgeous place for a photo shoot. I've attached a couple pictures of the day, but more will come later!
