The day began with an intimate and exclusive VIP Champagne Brunch at Garibaldi with featured guest speaker Elizabeth Demos, renowned stylist, event planner and author of Vintage Wedding Style. The luxe event designer shared her “buy it, rent it, borrow it, make it” tips. Centerpieces from Garden on the Square brightened the charming room.
More than 50 vendors, including caterers, spas and couturiers, provided sage advice to brides for planning their big days. After the salon, brides and their parties were treated to a high-end fashion show with gowns by Oscar de La Renta, Monique Llhuillier and Vera Wang, among others, from BleuBelle Bridal. All tuxes and tails were provided courtesy of Simon’s Formal Wear. Hair was done by B Street Salon, makeup by Savannah Makeup and Skincare Professionals and flowers by Urban Poppy. Jeremy Davis & the Equinoz Jazz Quintet performed romantic tunes.
