New Bern Bridal Expo, 2009

Had a great time at the New Bern Bridal Expo. In past years I haven’t had a booth at this show. I’m glad I made the effort this year. This round I pulled a groom’s name for the grand prize winner. Congratulations Bret F. of Hickory, NC. He and his fiance’ are planning an October wedding at the Ocean Club, Indian Beach, North Carolina. Bret gets his choice of an engagement portrait, a bridal (or groomal?) portrait, or a portrait session. He’ll get to choose one image from the session to be printed as a 16×20 gallery wrapped canvas.

A special shout-out goes to Samantha L. who flew in from Astoria, NY for the show and to meet me. Samantha and Rich will be wed at St. Egbert’s Church in Morehead City, NC in October. I know it’s going to be a beautiful wedding.

I changed the layout of the booth up a bit since the Crystal Coast Bridal Fair so here’s some photos. My next show will be the Lejeune Bridal Gala at the Jacksonville Commons Community Center, February 15th.

Business Wedding

Wedding Vendor Meeting in New Bern

I recently attended a networking meeting for wedding vendors at Promisied Hearts Wedding Consultants in New Bern, North Carolina. Had a chance to share ideas and make friends with a variety of wedding vendors from around eastern NC. These kinds of affairs are always nice as there just isn’t any time to visit or small talke when working a wedding. Afterall, the wedding day is all about you, the couple, and you do deserve our undivided attention. Thanks for hosting the meeting Pam Duval. I’m looking forward to my next trip to New Bern to network with even more wedding vendors.
