The Wedding Party Wrap Up

The Wedding Party in Palm Beach at The Breakers Hotel & Resort was all things extravagant, luxurious, and over the top fabulous! Hosted by The Wedding Library, a chic New York based research haven for brides-to-be, this bridal event was la crème de la crème in terms of bridal expos. A boutique, luxury, bridal event with the most design savvy vendors and the most gifted, sought-after, and talented wedding professionals in the business.
Celebrity speakers included Darcy Miller, Editorial Director, Martha Stewart Weddings, powerhouse fashion duo Mark Badgley and James Mischka, of Badgley Mischka, Sylvia Weinstock, New York's reigning cake diva, Kleinfeld fashion director Randy Fenoli, also of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress and wedding chic power blogger Abby Larson of Style Me Pretty. A ridiculously amazing group of guest speakers that were full of ideas and inspiration for every element of a wedding.

I was absolutely in awe of the wedding wonderland that The Wedding Party had laid out for us. {Sigh}, Stunning. Seriously stunning. And the details throughout the day were blissfully breathtaking. Honestly, there were so many beautiful, inspiring, and dreamy moments throughout the day that it's hard to choose a single favorite element of the day's events. The accessibility of the celebrity guests made the intimate affair all the merrier. I was able to rub elbows with the always adorable Abby Larson of Style Me Pretty and seek guidance and advice from the ever so talented Darcy Miller who I am completely smitten with.

From the elite guest speakers, to the bountiful vendor showcase, to the divine VIP luncheon, to the exquisite Kleinfield bridal fashion show, The Wedding Party was absolutely magical. Literally. And yours truly even made it into the Palm Beach Daily News!

Jacquelyn Chiovari, of Chicago, who is married and caught wind of the event at the last minute while vacationing in Naples, came to the event to see what was new in the wedding industry. "I'm inspired by the whole bridal market industry. I came to keep up with trends, to see what's new, and network. They had elite speakers, and I enjoyed hearing them."
