my chicago martha stewart’s wedding party recap

Posted by on

the acclaimed martha stewart’s wedding party brought their new york show on the road and debuted in chicago this past sunday!  held at the luxury radisson blu aqua and produced by martha stewart wedddings, new york’s claudia hanlin’s wedding library, and chicago’s own lovebird events, the sunday wedding showcase was stunning!

exhibitors were able to drop items off the day before.  here is what i was welcomed to when i arrived on saturday, a highboy table that i requested and a business sign…

warning: not the best iphone pics

we quickly dropped off heavier items and headed back home for last-minute preparations for sunday’s event.  here are some before shots of the venue…

i woke up early sunday morning and set up.  thank goodness i had the help of my husband and my good friend dawn.  here’s my space all set up…

before all the brides arrived, i was able to sneak a peek at the registration area…

 

i had great neighbors!  tom of xo pictures is a fellow indie wed exhibitor and a motion picture artist!

and to the other side, seth of spin spun.  hands down, the BEST cotton candy i have ever tasted in my life!  he offers AWESOME gourmet flavors like lemon coconut, jolly rancher watermelon, white truffle!!!  you need to book spin spun for your next party or corporate event.  not kidding.

so many beautiful tablescapes…

it’s great seeing familiar faces.  i ran into lynda of greenstar paperie who styled all of the paper goods for fancy candies…

the fun table of for your party

and there was food EVERYWHERE.  glasses of mimosa and champagne, sweets, passed hors d’oeuvres…

i wish i was able to take more {and better} photos, but was so busy!  i met so many great people and loved talking to all of the brides and grooms.  if you stopped by and said hello, thank you so much!!

as always, a huge thank you to my husband for hauling all of my stuff to and from the show, my sister for her beautiful wedding card boxes and awesome illustrations, and my friend dawn for assisting me the entire day, from setup to break down!

even with the chicago cold and rain, the folks came out!!  thanks to martha stewart weddings, claudia hanlin, and lovebird events for hosting a fabulous party!
