Folsom Bridal Show | Lake Natoma Inn | August

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Folsom Bridal Show | Lake Natomas | Carlos Valentino PhotographySunny and I had a great time this weekend at the Folsom Bridal Show which was being held at the Lake Natoma Inn. It’s always nerve racking standing up and meeting potential clients in a room with so many other professionals. Is my work good enough? Are my materials complicated? Will the Brides like my slide show? The doors to the show opened at 11am and as the Brides rushed in, more questions flooded my head. I’m I dress ok? I’m I talking to fast? I’m I too loud? Do I sound genuine or like a cheesy sales person going through a script? However in a few minutes these Brides eased all my concerns as I chatted, laugh and maybe made a friend or two. Grace and Luis had a couple from out of town that is getting married in 2012 and the Groom just happened to be from NYC; sweet! All in all it was a fun afternoon.

Thank you to all the Brides, Grooms, MOB’s & DOB’s for showing us love. Our next Bridal Show will be at Arden Hills January 2012 and then the cycle begins again, I’m I talking to fast? I’m I too loud? Do I have bad breath?

Shout out to Marisa & Francisco the cool dude from Yonkers and my bud Mark!

Malfunction | Before the Bridal Show

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

2011_DREAMSHOW_PACKEDOur wedding booth test run for the Dream Wedding Show at Cal Expo is done. The photos are wrapped, the lights are in the containers and the price list are ready to be handed out, but something happened, something ALWAYS happens. It’s like when you’re rushing to an appointment and get pulled over by a cop only to realize that you forgot your drivers license! I love to display my favorite images at the bridal shows and clients expect to see your best, but last night I damage one of the images; I wanted to scream! So the show will go on without that beautiful image and even though the brides at the show won’t know which image is missing, I will know :(

Get the most out of your wedding budget

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Dream Wedding ShowSpring and summer are the most popular wedding seasons. However, you can still get the most out of your wedding budget when you schedule your wedding on a weekday. For Bridal parties that decide to book their wedding during the week, I am offering 10% off my wedding collections for weddings celebrations that are booked from Sunday – Friday, when booking from March 1st – October 31st.

Getting married in the off-season may be very cost-effective. A fall or winter wedding not only gives you beautiful decorating themes to work with, but also offers more affordable venue and vendor options. In order to get the most out of your wedding budget I’m offering 10% off my wedding collections for weddings celebrations that are booked from Sunday – Saturday, when booking from November 1st – February 28th.

For more information feel free to visit my booth at the Dream Wedding Show
