I know I said it last time, but I could not have been happier with how this years Spring Wedding Expo turned out. Brides and vendors were constantly asking about when the show was going to be, which I feel really made this year the most successful wedding show to date! The number of vendors grew tremendously as well as the couples who attended. I have already booked two consultations from brides I met during the show. I cannot wait to bring these lovely brides peace of mind and coordinate some of the most joyful moments of their life!
Special thank you to Jessica and John, owners of the Barn at Heritage Farm for putting together the 2018 Spring Wedding Expo. Again, it was a grand success! I had a lot of fun meeting newly engaged couples with their families, taste testing food and cakes from the various caterers and bakeries, and meeting local entertainers.
