Wedding Show Recap – Hermann Hill April 28 2013

Just a quick welcome to all the Brides who registered with us Sunday.  If you have never attended the Wedding Trail in Hermann, you are missing a great opportunity to visit with some very fine vendors who hosted a huge Open House.  Some of the many locations available to tour included Stone Hill Winery, Hermann Hill Village, Valentine Hall, and Little Piney Lodge.  At Hermann Hill Village you could visit a number of vendors including Wine Town Designs, All About Cakes, Patrick Pope Photography, and many others.  This event will be repeated this fall in September so be sure to check our Events & Shows Page for information as to date and times.   Here are a few photos from the day.










Something New Bridal Fair Recap

Sunday was the Something New Bridal Fair at the Moulin off of Chouteau in St. Louis.  For those who missed this terrific show I wanted to showcase some of the new vendors that I had a chance to meet.   Unfortunately I can’t include all 45 vendors who were at the show, but here are a few that I think you will want to know about.
