Attending A Bridal Show this weekend? 
Avoid making the brides #1 mistake :
"Do not rush to sign anything at a show. "

Shows are a resource where you  gather knowledge and begin to crystalize your vision. Avoid the temptation to make a decision on impulse or under pressure.
I advise couples to bring two things to any wedding show,
~ their phone to take photos and 
~ their calendar to schedule appointments with prospective vendors. 

Reputable professionals will honor their show special for the next week or two after a show to allow for private consultations. For most couples their upcoming wedding will represent their largest financial investment , other then buying a house, for the next five years. The professionals who will help you bring your wedding vision to life and on budget, want you to make an informed choice that is right for YOU.

I hope to meet you at the Bravo Wedding Affaire on  Sunday Feb 23rd 2014 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in downtown Portland from 11am - 4pm.
We will be unveiling a stunning new ceremony design!

Congradulations on love well found !
Gabrielle of Black Swan

    "It is not our place to tell a client what to do. or what is "right".  It is our place to listen., to guide  them as they crystalize their vision, and then...
     exceed their expectations."
