Good morning! After a few crazy months of planning, promoting, putting in late nights at the office (don’t worry, we had wine) and simply being excited for The First Look, it feels a little surreal to know it has come and gone. We were all completely blown away by the success of The First Look and have so much gratitude for all those that exhibited and for our guests!  We're so excited that so many of you had a chance to connect with our beloved Swish list vendors! 

We chose a very neutral theme for this year's show and provided an inspiration board for each of our exhibitors. Kudos to our exhibitors for taking on this challenge! The result was a gorgeous, cohesive, blend of designs! 

A comment we heard repeatedly was that the show had such an intimate and welcoming atmosphere. Yay for good vibes! Many people also stated it was the most beautiful wedding show they had ever attended!  Enjoy a few images from the day! 

  A note of special thanks: We also have to extend a special thank you to Laura of Laura Olsen Events, Jess of Fleurish Design Studio, and Sharleen of Sweet Celebrations for being so open-minded and willing to create La Belle Amour as a feature room for the show. It was so incredibly beautiful!  

Hugs to the Honsberger family and team for being so wonderful and opening their beautiful property to us, Leslie from Warehouse 84 for creating the most elegant beer lounge, Liz from The Warehouse Niagara for the stellar music lounge decor, Carmela from Corsivo for the script on our ‘Bride’ buttons, and Angelica from Simply Beautiful for adding a little extra elegance to the space with her draping and cafe lights. 

We couldn't have done it with our many volunteers-the friendly faces that you saw at the registration desk and in the driveway directing traffic. We have such grateful hearts for our friends and family. xo

Thank you for visiting THE FIRST LOOK wedding show! We hope you'll keep coming back to the blog for weekly doses of inspiration! And in case you missed it, we posted a video of the event by the very talented Enns Visuals. You can watch it here! 

Happy Planning!
