Hey all! Last week, I headed down to Beatnik Studios in Sacramento with my friend Erica Henderson of Tin Roof Farmhouse to check out the first annual Fresh Bash wedding experience-- I call it an experience because it was a wedding fair unlike any other! I wasn't quite sure what to expect, since it was geared towards wedding vendors (brides and the general public were also welcome) but when I arrived, I realized it far exceeded anything I had imagined!
From the moment Erica and I set foot on the studio grounds, we were blown away by the creativity, wide variety of vendors and beauty of the entire set up! It was beyond fun: there was dancing, photo booths of every kind, amazing food and drinks were handed out, and wildly creative vignettes were put together by different teams of wedding professionals (including my friends at Roots Reclaimed) that were displayed for inspiration & some friendly competition... the guests voted and Team Rad won the best vignette by the end of the night. I loved the common trends which were intertwined between all of the vignettes and vendors... it's obvious that 2015 is the year of the boho/geometric/pastel elements, and I LOVE IT ALL!! Besides the beauty, it was also great to mingle with other wedding professionals, we all appreciated expanding our networking circles!
To top it off: the first 100 guests (me included!) were given an incredible swag bag that included treats, business cards and offers, a flower crown, sparklers and even a tiny pinata plus more! It was definitely the icing on the cake. By the end of the night, I didn't wanna go! The first Fresh Bash was a huge success, and I absolutely cannot wait for next year. Thank you to the fabulous girls who put the party together, including: Rosaura of Pigment and Parchment, Carmen of Carmen Salazar Photography, Dena of Throne Invitations and Hailey of Pretty Planner Weddings & Events.
