an outdoor wedding show like no other

September 8, 2019

wedding planning, but fun

We think wedding planning should be enjoyable. We understand that visualizing your perfect day can be hard. In the huge world of wedding events and resources, you can feel like you’ll be stuck with someone else’s idea of your day. We don’t want that to happen. Your wedding should reflect who you are, and where you are. Our outdoor show will feature curated vendors who want to help you create a wedding that speaks to this idea. Walk our aisles of tents to meet artisans who create locally-themed favors and attendant gifts, caterers who can tell you where the grits were milled and photographers who can highlight the best moments of your unique day.
