2nd Annual DIY Bridal ShowYesterday was pretty awesome, not only was the sun shining and the weather beautiful, but it was also the first time I was able to participate in a bridal show! When Cedrick first approached me a few months ago about participating in the 2nd Annual DIY Bridal Show, I was a bit nervous, but with a little a LOT of help from my boyfriend, I was able to have a gorgeous booth showing off some samples of my work in a super classy way!

Eric literally built that wall from scratch, painted it, and hung all the pictures on it. I was SO proud of what he created!wedding show photography booth 2nd Annual DIY Bridal Show Wedding photographer bridal show booth

Once we got to the Norfolk Chesapeake Marriott and got everything set up, we had a chance to walk around and chat with some of the other awesome vendors who were also at the show with us! It was amazing to see all the talent coming from our “friendors” in the gorgeous booths they created!bridal show booth bridal booth display charm necklace 2nd Annual DIY Bridal Show

The best part about going to any bridal show? Why, the delicious cakes and cupcakes, of course! 😉
