Last night I took a little road trip with Ginger and Corinna to attend the launch party for the fall issue of Weddings Unveiled in Charleston, SC! I received a few copies of the fall issue early this week, and as I looked through the delicious details from real weddings and the stunning equestrian-inspired editorial shoot, I finally came to the page I was looking for – our half page ad on p. 198! This is our first big print ad, and I’m so excited that it is in such a gorgeous magazine!
Though Charleston is just a 3 1/2 hour drive away, it seemed to take longer as we drove through constant rain, wondering if the threat of flash floods was real. But we’re Florida girls, and it rains ALL the time here in the “Sunshine State,” so a little water wasn’t going to deter us from getting our party on!
We arrived at the Charleston Library Society and I was just in awe of its charm. The steps leading up to the door made for such a grand entrance. When we walked in to the room, there was music playing and a chorus of voices chatting about weddings over cocktails and some incredible southern-inspired hors d’ouerves! The lighting directed your attention to the gorgeous wedding gowns on display:
I forgot to bring a point and shoot camera, so all I have are images from my trusty iPhone! But I treasure all 2 megapixels of detail that they captured! : )
The highlight of the evening for me was meeting the infamous Emily H (because to her Twitter name, I feel like the H has to be mentioned!). Her enthusiasm for Weddings Unveiled is the main reason we decided to advertise with them! I also had the privilege of meeting Brooke Thomas, the Publisher and Creative Director of the magazine! They made us feel so welcome and just the opportunity to say hello to the amazing people behind this gorgeous magazine was worth the drive!
As they encouraged us to enjoy the party, I indulged in a special champagne punch that was created for the party. Other favorites included delightful mini cupcakes by Wild Flour Pastry, the crab cakes by Duvall Catering & Event Design, and the stunning and oh-so-delicious cake creation by Jim Smeal I also loved the intimate setting created by the romantic centerpieces designed by Blossoms Events.
I’m so thankful to my road trip girls for being crazy enough to drive 7 hours round trip to spend 2 wonderful hours at this event! The conversation in the car was a great part of the experience, and really this drive was nothing compared to 12 hours roundtrip to Pensacola! We are a bit crazy, but when you are in good company a road trip is a great time!
Thank you to Weddings Unveiled for a lovely evening and inviting us to celebrate the launch of the fall issue with you! It’s exciting to be part of such a gorgeous publication! : )
