Indie Wed: The Recap


You guys, my first ever wedding show is behind me!

And I honestly and so happy that I made the trek through the snow last Saturday to have my first wedding show be Indie Wed – it was in the coolest venue ever, the Ravenswood Event Center, and all of the booths were seriously amazing! My bf Lexi came with me which was such a good idea – it’s a tiring day and I can’t imagine how I would have done it alone.

I chatted for a while with Kelly, who founded Indie Wed + then met Ami from Elizabeth Anne Designs and we talked for a while as well! It’s so fun to meet and talk to so many amazing people. It definitely made me realize that working hard is going to pay off – these women are perfect examples of that.

I also got to share my work with over a thousand brides and grooms – one girl even said my invites gave her the chills! That was the best feeling ever 🙂

Above are a few shots from my booth. Funny story – at Alt Summit I took a picture of Jessica Alba (she made a special appearance!) and she ended up following me on Instagram. As I was prepping my booth last Friday, I was feeling pretty down that I hadn’t created a massive backdrop for the show but took that quick picture of the details of my booth and shared it on Instagram – and Jessica liked it! That made my week and helped give me the confidence boost I needed 🙂

If you’re getting married anytime in the next year, I highly suggest going to Indie Wed – it’s a different type of wedding expo full of amazing vendors!
