Wedding Details

The week continues with more from the NJ Wedding Salon - here's a few of my favorite detailed photos I took while at the show...
Glass votive holders hanging from tree branches were the centerpiece for the escort card table upon entrance created by A Touch of Elegance. Below is another view of the amazing display. Pink beaded napkin ring holder with edge of beaded plate from Select Event Rentals. Close-up of Vera Wang wedding gown modeled at exclusive fashion show. Customized napkin ring from Boxwood Linen.

The $100,000 Bride

Here's the photo of the $100,000 bride from the NJ Wedding Salon - everything she is wearing (dress, veil, headpiece, necklace, earrings, etc) add up to $100,000 retail (dress from Kleinfeld's). Wow! It was amazing to see it in person.

Coming tomorrow will be the photo details from the show . . .

Vera Wang Fall 2008 Collection

Below are photos of some of the gowns shown during the Exclusive Vera Wang Fall 2008 Bridal Fashion Show during yesterdays NJ Wedding Salon held at the stunning Palace at Somerset Park. There was a total of 22 dresses modeled, I've selected 15 to show you (only because 1 of 2 things happened with my photos of the other seven dresses)
A. the photo is blurry
B. I was only able to capture the back of the dress
Please pardon the occasional head cropping and eyes closed. While I love taking photographs - I'm definitely not a professional :)

Which dress is your favorite? Please leave your comment(s) and/or thought(s) and I'll reveal the top winners next week. (My personal favorites are #1 with the velvet ribbon sash, #4 cotton tulle and #6 triple tiered silk organdy)

Sorry for the saturated photos above - something must have went wrong with my flash.

I will be posting photos of the backs of some of the dresses in another post either this afternoon or tomorrow - some of them were absolutely beautiful. Don't forget to vote for your favorite dress(es) shown above.

Check back all next week as I will be highlighting more from The Wedding Salon show - there will be inspiration, photos, ideas and new trends.

NJ Wedding Salon Recap

My apologies for not being able to post yesterday about the spectacular show The Wedding Salon hosted. My husband and I didn't make it back home until after midnight (got stuck in 2 major traffic jams which added another hour to our drive home). This morning I will be going thru the photos I took at the show and I'll be posting photos from the Exclusive Vera Wang bridal show which featured gowns from her Fall 2008 Collection. Come back and vote for your favorite.
