Hitched Happy Hour Recap

Last Thursday we hosted another Hitched Happy Hour. Thank you to all our brides who came with friends and family to make it our best yet! For those who were unable to make it, we want to recap the evening with you. From sweet treats and beauty advice to local vendors and the latest wedding gowns, this event had everything a bride could ask for!

Fruit Bar

We began the night with our favorite beauty experts. Christine Danderand of Blush Makeup Artistry and Dani Cooper from Boss Studios set up for free wedding hair and makeup trials! Christine does wonders with an airbrush, giving brides a natural look that won’t smudge or run on your wedding day. Dani creates beautiful hairstyles to compliment the bride and her wedding dress. These two truly are experts! Brides, bridesmaids, and even a mother of the bride enjoyed the stylings of these two. So much so that we had brides booking wedding hair and makeup appointments on the spot!

Hair and Makeup

The month we also welcomed one of our new favorite local vendors, Christine Dirkschneider Ballard. Christine is a talented photographer who shoots everything from senior pictures to engagement photos. Of all her work, our favorite is her boudoir photography. With so many brides interested in this growing art, we wanted to bring in an expert to answer questions and chat with brides. Christine’s easy-going personality and beautiful boudoir photos helped many of our brides decide to take boudoir photos as a wedding gift to their husbands – what a great idea!

While brides chatted with the vendors, others were busy trying on the latest gowns from the Ivy & Aster Trunk Show. No one could get enough of the rich textures, feminine fabrics, and flirty silhouettes that the wedding gowns had to offer. The bridesmaid dresses were just as popular. Our favorite was a strapless lavender dress that cab be dyed after the wedding – perfect for the bridesmaid who is worried about not being able to wear the dress again!

Ivy & Aster Trunk Show

To make this Hitched Happy Hour a true girls’ night, Chill Body Manicure & Pedicure Spa offered mini mani/pedi sessions to everyone at the event. Many brides sipped champagne while swapping stories with other brides. And, of course, there were plenty of goodies for ladies to munch on! Brides assembled their very own fruit pizzas at our fruit pizza bar!

All in all we had a wonderful evening spending extra time with all our brides! We are already planning the next event and hope all of you will join us!
