2014 Bridal Showcase Coverage

As a creative soul, I'm constantly inspired by the beauty of everyday life, and the never-ending opportunity to capture it in a photo. Hence I have a small addiction to Instagram. The unique way in which each individual interprets reality fascinates and captivates me. So when it ended up that I was sadly unable to attend yesterday's grand Bridal Showcase, put on by Carolina Weddings & Events, I of course, consulted my number one source of visual news: Instagram. I'm forever impressed with the amount of effort local vendors put into creating their respective spaces, but this year, it seems, they truly outdid themselves. Plus, with the way I'm showcasing this year's displays, you can follow all of these fabulous vendors and get daily design inspiration, like I do. 

Gilded Age

I'm such a sucker for gold flatware. It's quintessentially glamourous in an Old Hollywood way. Set upon rustic wood and paired with unfussy white hydrangeas, this Classic Party Rentals tablescape is effortlessly chic.

Full Spectrum

This magical ombré floral arrangement is beyond stunning. I'm head over heels for the range of color in these flowers by Lingky


From the textured linen to a most adorable hanging display, Carolina Weddings & Events' booth was clean and cute with just the right amount of golden glamour. @carwedandevents
