We’ve been quiet on the blog over the past few weeks.  Fall has been (and continues to be) our busiest season for weddings, as the DC region is just beautiful this time of year!  Earlier this Fall, Bright Occasions had an incredible opportunity to attend industry events in New York City for Be Inspired PR and Martha Stewart Weddings.  It was wonderful to take a break during this busy time to connect with top DC event designers and wedding industry professionals from across the country!  Here are some of the highlights:

My dates

My dates for the trip were Lisa Marie with Sweet Tea Photography and Tabitha Roberts of Robers & Co. It was wonderful to see wedding industry friends at the Be Inspired PR party, including Engaging Affairs, Karson Butler Events, Intrigue Design & Decor.

Tassels & Tastemakers featured a debut by Pas De Deux Bridal http://www.pasdedeuxbridal.com

We loved the Bubbly Bar!

It was so great meeting the team at Lover.ly and Be Inspired PR. Thanks for the amazing swag with gifts from Minted, Target, Rent the Runway, Essie Polish, Wedding Paper Divas, Laura Hooper Calligraphy and more

So then this happened, very cool to take a selfie with Martha Stewart and Tabitha (Roberts & Co) at the Martha Stewart Weddings Party

Wedding Paper Diva’s was there with a paper bar; guests were able to go down the line to pick-up some of their new thank you notes.
