we were blown away by the cream of the crop at the cream event in nyc last week! this was by far the best wedding showcase we’ve seen to date!! we were joined by our friend and designer, sharon, who is curating her own wedding next year. the soiree took place in center 548, an incredible white warehouse in the middle of chelsea. we walked into a freight elevator and were greeted with real live elevator music by a duo from philly’s own elan artists who strummed away as we rode to the 2nd floor. the enormous elevator doors opened up into a fairy tale world of gold sparkles, patterns, champagne, and loads and loads of talent. we got lost in the dreamy party for a couple of hours and left with some fabulous ideas and of course a couple glittery gifts for ourselves from ban.do! check out more of the night and fun dance party in this video by tree of life films. extra special thanks to bash please for putting together such a memorable event!!

last wednesday we attended the knot party at front and palmer in south kensington. this is one of the newest event sites in philadelphia. it was a former barrel factory that was renovated into the most unique loft space full of natural textures and artistic chandeliers. we couldn’t get enough of the chandeliers, they were each better than the next, some made from metal netting and others from metal spoons or glass bottles. we got to nibble on tasty treats from feast your eyes catering, sip on some very feminine st. germain cocktails sprinkled with flowers, and admire the most beautiful creations by robertson’s flowers. we hung out with good friends and made new friends. we really enjoyed the space and were lucky to see how an event would work in there. we highly recommend this venue to those of you looking for something a little different in the area!
hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! we spent yesterday at the greater philadelphia bridal expo at the fuge, in warminster pennsylvania. it was quite impressive seeing this enormous industrial room come to life. they put on a great event that was not only full of wedding vendors, but showcased how an event could be held there. fabrics, lanterns, and acrobats hung from the 30 foot plus ceilings. flowy drapes and colorful lighting transformed the entire room into moody atmosphere. the original circular centrifuge is still in the center of the room and is great little spot for the bar and the top of it is an ideal stage for the band.
we enjoyed meeting all of you that stopped by our booth and look forward to working with you!
p.s. our adorable mini cupcakes on our table were made by dee’s mom of dot’s cakes!
we are participating in the 2012 GPM bridal expo this sunday, february 12th! it’s being held from 12pm-4pm at the fuge in warminster, pennsylvania. the bridal event is going to be a big deal — packed with giveaways, fashion shows, and a fun groom cake bake off. not only is the event itself a first of it’s kind for the area, but the space has a very cool story. the fuge, was a centrifuge for training fighter pilots in the 40’s and then astronauts in the 60’s, including neil armstrong and buzz aldrin. it’s such a unique venue — 12,000 square feet, completely circular, with a wonderful history.
come by our booth to see our latest creations and say hello! tickets are only $5 online and $8 at the door.
