It’s hard to believe that Local Love Pop Up has already come and gone! I’ve been filling out forms, talking about styled shoots and dreaming up the booth since the early days of May. Like with any wedding, it was a joyful whirlwind from the planning stages to the wrap up.
Local Love’s event at the Enjoy Centre was such a wonderful day! I was able to connect with many of Edmonton’s soon to be newlyweds and their loved ones. After many years in the wedding industry, I still find the excitement of these couples contagious. Hearing about everyone’s upcoming plans was a true highlight of the day.
In addition, it was great to share the room with some of Edmonton’s finest wedding vendors. Though we all work together regularly, it’s not often enough that we get to enjoy each other’s company in a less frenetic environment.
It was a real treat to connect with the hearts behind Edmonton’s most successful and established vendors alongside some increasingly impressive up and comers. LOVE PIZZA, NEAT Photobooth, Arrow Films, Andronyk Jewelry, Delica Bridal, Jessica Fern Facette, and Jenny McAllister are all vendors that I greatly admire, and these are only the icing on top of this particular Local Love Pop Up’s wedding cake!
I can’t wait to see the incredible celebrations that result from this local and love-filled day!
All things said, I was most thrilled to have Andrea Yacyshyn of Fortune Writer, to join in on the fun at my booth and write her honest and thoughtful fortunes for our guests. Her beautiful words were a huge hit with so many at the event. It has been a real pleasure to be able to view all of the fortunes that were posted online in the days following. I had an inkling that people would love her and appreciate what she does just as much as I do!
Fortune Writer is a great option for entertainment during cocktail hour or for your reception. In addition, her fortunes can also serve as party favors! This allows guests to walk away from your wedding with unique and personalized messages, while you kick back, relax and enjoy your day.
I would like to extend a big thank you to Amy from Local Love Pop Up and Najla from Blush Magazine for all their hard work on this wonderful show. It is an amazing way to connect with fantastic vendors and to make sure your wedding is planned locally, but mostly importantly, with you in mind!
