Carolina Bridal Fair Featuring David Tutera! TODAY 9.23.13

I was lucky enough to attend the Carolina Bridal Fair in Concord, NC today with my mom!  Having met David before, I wanted to come back and say hello again, and have my mom meet him! 🙂 We arrived at the show around noon, and had some time to walk around before meeting Mr. Tutera!

Here is the first time I met him! ALL the way back in 2010!


and today….


yes, it looks like I was photobombing the picture but I assure you I wasn’t… David was just besties with my mom! 🙂


It was super awesome meeting him again, such a nice man, and I wish him all the best! I surely love watching his show, especially with my mom! 🙂

I found a few really awesome vendors in the area that I must mention on my blog before I quit this post this evening.

The fashion show had a really unique backdrop, made of paper flowers! It was SOOOOO awesome, and come to find out the  vendor was there to meet! Check out Balushka Paper Floral Artistry on Facebook! or Etsy!

Here are some pictures from today, and some of their work from their facebook!





I love their designs! 🙂

Another great vendor at the show was Classic Bride & Formals! Their booth caught my eye and I had the pleasure of talking with Phaedra Flowers, owner of the Bridal Shop!

Here was one of their gorgeous gowns by Maggie Sottero, “Gianna.”


Thanks again for talking with me Phaedra, I hope to talk to you soon!

I also met DJ on a Dime on the way out… check them out! Even though I wasn’t getting married, they still wanted to say hello!

Last but not least, I stopped by Charlotte DJ & Events booth, you might remember them from a previous post! Be sure to check out Brian and Chris and tell them I sent you there! 🙂

I had such a great time at the Carolina Bridal Fair and I hope you like all that I found today!
