Dave and I were really fortunate to participate in the Gilded Bride event a couple of Sundays ago. This was definitely not your typical bridal show. Not only were there amazing vendors with truly unique products and services, but the set-up was very different from others we have been a part of. One of the things that made it special was the way the fashions were shown off. No runway for this crew. The “brides” and “grooms” mixed and mingled with the crowd. All of the dresses, tuxedos, accessories, and flowers were supplied by vendors at the shows. The looks were unique and exciting.

While I met with brides, grooms and their families, Dave did a mini-fashion session with the models. He had a lot of fun playing with a more fashion-editorial feel. There’s definitely a common thread of sexiness running through the images. Here’s a bit of eye-candy from the photo shoot:
