What a wonderful experience at the Crowne Plaza Union Station bridal show! I have nothing but gratitude to Ryan & Stacey Hendrickson, owners of the Indinapolis Perfect Wedding Guide. They always do a great bridal show event. The Crowne Plaza was so gracious in showcasing their beautiful, historic venue. Absolutely breathtaking. Megan and Katie really did a fine job in all this and have to give them thanks for doing so.
First, I have to thank my lovely wife, Onda, who has given me room to work and grow and find the romance in our art work. Secondly, I have to thank my wonderful associate and partner in this business, Emily Brauchle, who has a real connection with those she meets. So professional and dresses for style. A truly amazing young woman.
Bob Ridge, of Indy Visual, was in the background videotaping in time lapse for the event. Cannot wait to view this video. I probably will forget some of my friends who I made contact with, but want to give them kudos for their professionalism during the show. Next door was Sunny Moon, Great DJ Entertainment, with his musicologist, Sandi Brown. One of his referrals to me was a blessing. Across from me was Tanya Marshall, of Heavenly Sweets, and amazing cake designer. David & Leah Cupp of My Daily Wedding Deals, who are always so kind and gracious to all. Scott & Mark Evans, of Evans Audio Visual,and their wonderful crew, came early in the day to set up the jumbo vision over our Bello Romance Photography booth. Thanks, Scott & Mark. True friends. Also saw Jill Westwood Sowder of the Westwood Paper Company.
The lovely brides walking throughout the show, Kristin, Kathryn, & Stephanie, were more than beautified by the also lovely Rebecca Shorter, of True Colors Indy. She did hair & makeup for the runway girls.
Emily & I made a visit to see Bruce and Carol, of Top Hat Photo Booth, to get our silly photos done. Thanks for the fun. Jason & Tara Carpenter, of DJ Sound Solution were also a great presence as people entered the Grand Ballroom. Jason has to escape to do a music gig, so Emily & I lent our support to help her get her stuff to her vehicle.
Julie Acheson, of Royal Creations, brought flowers to decorate our table in the color scheme we chose, Bello Bleu. The day before, we were photographing a wedding and Julie was our florist, and always with a wonderful smile that comes from deep in her heart. Thanks, Julie.
Kenton Dixon, you’re a treat, my friend. Love your passion.
There are too many to thank. I was so enjoying the moments where I can meet these brides. Makes my day to enjoy conversation that matters. Conversations of romance. Conversations that build trust.
