Mindy Weiss Book Signing Event and Expo!
I was recently asked to coordinate an event for Celebrity Wedding Planner, Mindy Weiss, who would be signing her fabulous new book at Books and Books in Coral Gables.
When I met with Debra, Cristina, and Emily at Books and Books, we were all on the same page and wanted to create a fun, wedding-like environment for the attendees.
We decided to invite some of the best wedding vendors in the area to showcase their talents, and instead of setting up traditional bridal expo style booths, we had each vendor display their services as they would at a wedding.
We set Mindy's lecture area like a wedding ceremony complete with chivari chairs and ceremony decor. Classical music was played throughout the event. After Mindy's lecture, we featured five of this seasons hottest bridal looks in a down the aisle fashion show. After the show, guests were free to mingle with the vendors and brides on the courtyard where the reception took place. The tables were beautifully decorated and featured a wedding inspired menu from The Cafe at Books and Books.
Mindy is such a genuinely nice person and I really enjoyed the time I had to speak with her (I loved hearing stories about her celebrity wedding clients!). Her lecture was great and everyone especially loved her Q&A session.
Here are some pictures from the event taken by Melissa Perez at Simply Captivating.

- I love everything about weddings, especially how different each one is. I love to create innovative and personal designs for my clients to make their weddings unique and fun with lots of "wow factor". As a previous bride myself I know first hand how stressful wedding planning can be and take pride in managing every detail of my clients special day so they can enjoy every minute.
