Orfila Vineyards Bridal Fair

I was recently honored with an invitation to display Paper and Thread's pieces at Orfila Vineyard's first Bridal Fair. The initial challenge of the event was the display. We had to get a little creative, call in for reinforcements, and nurse a couple blisters from the hours spent making paper flowers. It all turned out great and we received a ton of compliments on our display. It was a little windy, so you can't see both of my "As seen on" signs. My sweet father had the idea of making little signs that showed how my invitations were featured on Style Me Pretty and The Wedding Chicks. Hanging those signs gave me a little feeling of "wow, I'm kind of making it."
If I were planning my wedding, this would have been an event worth attending for sure. What better way to chat with wedding vendors than with a beautiful vineyard setting and a glass of wine in your hand. It was truly a lovely day and made me love what I do even more. Chatting with engaged couples, brides, and mothers of the brides about their ideas for their day reignited the enthusiasm I have for the wedding industry. A huge special thanks to my assistant for the day; Marissa, you rock and I'm so lucky to have you as a friend.
