South Asian Bridal Show

The South Asian Bridal Show, hosted by Rivaaj Magazine, will take place next Sunday, February 8, 2009 at the Retreat of Dunwoody, and is a MUST ATTEND if you are looking for inspirations and Atlanta A-list vendors to make your event unforgettable!

If you go, say hello to the StudioWed representatives, and check out my innovative Floral Designs featured on the "Orange and Blue" table at the StudioWed Atlanta booth. Michelle Gainey of Lemiga Events had come up with this really great inspiration board, but visit the table in person, as the creative ideas have evolved dramatically since then!

103 West, part of the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group, is a private event facility, and one of my FAVORITE venues because of their chic decor, intimate settings, and hospitable staff!  I feel privileged to have one of my signature weddings included on their newest advertising post card (top row, third image from left):  

You can also view 103 West's full page ad on page 61 of the 2009 anniversary issue of the Atlantan Brides Magazine.

If you're interested in holding your event here, DEFINITELY contact Heidi McElroy; she's great! And of course be sure to let her know I referred you!
