If you haven't heard yet, there's a new bridal shop in Richmond, VA! And as October comes to a close we are looking back at our first month in business and feel so thankful for the unbelievable support and encouragement from family, friends, and especially the local wedding community! We kicked things off with an Annalise Launch Party complete with a flower wall photo booth, flash tattoo bar (YEP you heard that right), rock candy martinis, Sweet Fix macaroons, Red Eye cookies, and so much more. We didn't want any of it to end!
Can we talk about this customized bar from Paisley and Jade and the incredible chalk board logo they created for us?! P&J has so many amazing pieces to rent that can surely transform any space! We are in love with this bar and can't thank you guys enough for the time and effort put in to this art work.
Okay guys, I have to brag on Sarah and Kristen of The Proper Petal who completely nailed it with the yellow, burgundy, and pink! The flower wall in the photo booth was such a hit and the shop smelled amazing for days after. Thank y'all so much for putting so much love into these arrangements and for being so stinking talented!
The rock candy martinis were almost too pretty to drink but oh so yummy! And a huge shout out to the bartender who is quite handsome if I do say so myself (aka the muscle behind Annalise).
Sweet Fix RVA....those macaroons are to die for! Amanda's sweet treats always look like perfection all the while not skimping on taste or flavor one bit. These taste even better than they look! And who can turn down a bite size version of a Red Eye Cookie?! Yum Yum!
LOVE me some flash tattoos and I'm pretty sure almost everyone that walked through the door left with one or more! Necklaces, rings, bracelets, armbands, feathers....it was hard to stop! And these are no dinky tattoos. My mom's bracelet lasted over a week! Thank you Taylor Batt (Alyson Taylor Events) for having the genius idea to offer flash tats at our launch party!
BIG thank you to Elle Photo Booth!!! This setup was seriously the best I've ever seen. Great props and the most adorable printed out photo strips with our #AnnaliseLaunchParty hastag and everything! We love y'all!
Friends, friends, and friends!!! Some seriously talented and inspiring individuals visited our space to say congrats and we feel so honored!
I owe this successful party to the amazing Alyson Taylor Events! Thank you for being just as excited as I am about this beautiful boutique and offering to help celebrate this two year long journey in the most perfect way! Another person that made this evening so special is the lovely lady who captured all these photos, Nicki Metcalf! We're so happy to be a new bridal shop in Richmond for brides to find the dress of their dreams! We hope you'll come and visit soon!
Much love to the most incredible vendors!
