I think one of the best wedding shows for a Los Angeles Wedding Planner or a bride to attend is, “A Soolip Wedding” show. It happens once a year in Los Angeles and in San Francisco. It was started by Wanda Wen of Soolip Paperie near Melrose Place.
This year the LA show was staged at the Bel Air Bay Club at the top of the hill at Sunset and PCH. The weather at the beach that day was just gorgeous so the venue really shined.
The Soolip Wedding Show vendors this year were so creative with their spaces. It was nice to visit each area and enjoy the display and samples.
One of my favorites was the unique and custom wedding bouquets by Joan Bryant of Make Something Special Happen. So smart and sustainable to hold items that are meaningful, beautiful and non parishable. Just charming!
Specializing in Dessert Stations was Sandee Creager of Candee by Sandee who had a colorful lavendar tone candy station, with a backdrop of rag ties strung on a pipe frame.
It made for a really fun display.
I also learned about a rustic ranch-like, family owned venue called Maravilla Gardens in Camarillo.
It looks spacious with a backdrop of weeping willows, a working farm and rolling greens.
I like their tag line:
“The best kept secret for unforgettable weddings”!
Leaving the show I had to take a shot of the sweet lilac that charmed up this banister outside of the Bay Club.
