Charlotte Wedding Magazine's Wedding Connection event

Charlotte Wedding's Charlotte Wedding Connection bridal show was held this past weekend at the Fillmore.

In a new venue—the Fillmore, at the North Carolina Music Factory—the Charlotte Wedding Connection bridal show brought together vendors from florists to DJs to photographers to dance studios with brides-to-be and their friends and family on Sunday.

Stationers Oh Scrap! Paper Boutique, Red Stone Press, and SCM design talked with guests about invites, save the dates, and more. Delicious cakes were sampled by the WOW Factor Cakes and Cheesecakes, Etc. Photographers came out in droves—Critsey Rowe Photography, Chuck Eaton Photographers, Hart to Hart digital Design, Image Gallery, LBE Photography, Lisa Crates Photography, Christi Falls Photography, BeMe Photography, and Shutterbooth.

Lots of venues were on hand, too—the Fillmore, Hampton Inn & Suites at SouthPark, Levine Museum of the New South, Pine Island Country Club, the Dunhill Hotel, and the Palmer Building.

And brides looking to get in serious shape before they say "I do" met with Pure Barre (a place I’m still dying to check out myself).

The next Charlotte Wedding Connection is October 2 so mark your calendars now, brides-to-be! And, vendors, if you’re interested in participating, please email
