This past sunday, I was lucky enough to attend Martha Stewart’s annual wedding party! Â This year, it was held in the extravagant and beautifully decoratedÂ Gotham Hall, NYC.
Not your average ice sculpture, this one was carve-able, and branded by our very own Nadia D.!
There were a ton of amazing vendors, both new to the industry and seasoned veterans, all offering a wide variety of goodies and displays.
Oysters from Oyster XO were shucked on site and served fresh to guests. Yum!
Gabriella New York showed some fabulous dresses and headpieces.
My personal fave wasÂ Peter Callahan & Callahan CateringÂ with these adorable caviar and cracker “engagement rings.”
NewlyWish was one of many newer startups in attendance. Â This registry website, along with other companies like Josh Gelb’sÂ Kleinfeld Name Change and Hitch Switch signify that newcomers are welcome and important in the bridal industry. Â I was excited to see some newbies for the first time.
This “Ask the Experts” panel included many known names within the industry such as Peter Callahan and fashion designer Amsale Aberra, as well as newcomer Kellee Khalil of Lover.ly.
I was so thrilled about all of these startups–I even got to hang out with these four amazing ladies! Â Here I am withÂ Nearly NewlywedÂ founder Jacqueline, How He Asked founder Stacy, Jessica, the Budget Savvy Bride, and Brittny, Â Love Inc. Magazine founder.
