The Bow Ties & Bubbly bridal show at The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club is by far one of our favorite bridal shows…ever. Not only because it’s held at one of the most gorgeous waterfront venues the Eastern Shore has to offer (though that is totally a bonus!), but because of the incredible talent featured! From florists to planners to confectioners to photographers, there is so much to see and experience that it just about stops our wedding-loving hearts year after year! Of course one of the best parts for us, is to see our talented local vendors on display in all their glory! Here is just a taste of all the pretty that was this year’s show, featuring a some of our MESW vendors, as well as a few neighbors from across the Bay!
Cristina Calvert Signature wooed us with her soft & neutral palate!
Melanie & Sarah had a lovely little set-up to represent The Tidewater Inn!
Kari and her team from Kari Rider Events blew us away with their Mediterranean-inspired ceremony and tablescape with florals from Crimson & Clover!
Jack from Concours Vintage Limousine showed off his ’61 Rolls Royce!
Dwelling & Design unveiled their new online bridal registry, and gave us “Navy with a Twist”!
Jill Andrews stunned us (as usual) with her custom heirloom bridal collection!
Heather & Kathy represented their family-owned rental business, Ebb Tide Tent & Party Rentals!
Lauren Niles had us head-over-heals for her pretty and elegant set-up!
This year as an added bonus, we got to tour a bit of the Beach Club’s newest addition, The Inn! We are so excited for this stunning facility to be open for business, and can’t wait to book a stay-cation weekend! From the Beach Club:
