Industrial Glamour – Okanagan Bridal Expo Booth 2014

   Well it’s that time of year again –  wedding show season!   I’ve done at least one show every year since I started Classic Creations in the Fall of 2009, and love looking back on how I’ve grown in my business and designs since my very first show October 2009 (and over 130 weddings later).    These shows are all about showcasing yourself and what you love, and finding a way to stand out against everyone else out there.   What I love most about these shows is being able to create something unique that hasn’t been seen before & that inspires me and makes me happy.  It’s also a perfect time to feature some new rental products, see what other Okanagan wedding vendors are up to,  and of course most importantly meet some lovely brides excited about planning their day!

In November I moved into a brand new industrial studio space, which is what ended up inspiring my “Industrial Glamour” booth.  The furniture pieces I have purchased for my studio space were perfect for my booth design – bringing in hints of the industrial theme,  while I made sure the flowers were bold & glamorous.   I set everything up the night before in my studio, to make sure  it was exactly how I wanted it, and I didn’t want to take it down!

In choosing my flowers I decided I wanted to do something brighter & a bit more bold than what I have been doing lately.  The 2013 wedding season was the year of muted pastels flowers – specifically blush, white & peach, so I wanted to feature something a bit different.   Don’t be afraid of colour, you can still create an elegant and glamorous look when paired with rustic pieces & gold accents!   I used Hydrangeas, Peonies, Garden Roses, Standard Roses, Ranunculus, Tulips & Orchids in shades of Orange, Peach, Coral, Pink, Purple & White with a hint of Grey Dusty Millar & Seeded Eucalyptus (I have an obsession with Dusty Millar).    I love how the colours pop off the gold vases, gold dinnerware, ornate lanterns & reclaimed grey wood.

Thank you to the talented Jon & Jenny Adrian of Adrian Photographers, who took  these beautiful photos of my booth.  I so appreciate their talent & continued support,  and I am really looking forward to working with them more this wedding season!

I hope you enjoy looking at these photos as much as I enjoyed creating my booth design, and I hope it can inspire you to create your own perfect wedding or event.
