engage ottawa luxury wedding show recap


What an exciting weekend! Actually, I guess the excitement started back in November when Stacey from The Design Co. asked if I would be interested in having a booth at ENGAGE. I read that email on my way to a night out with some girlfriends and the evening took an immediate turn towards celebration. I couldn't believe it! I would get to showcase my work and meet some lovely brides-to-be in none other than the ballroom at The Chateau Laurier.

Wedding shows are definitely one of my favourite parts of the business. I feel like I could chat with brides all day about their ideas for venues, florals, bridesmaids dresses...and at some point we start talking about photography too. Let me walk you through the entire ENGAGE experience!

First, a look at my booth :)






My amazing booth assistant, Brittany. She knows my services inside and out and has the best rapport with brides. Can't imagine doing a show without her!





Shortly before showtime, this little box arrived on one of my tables. It was a gift from the girls at The Design Co., with a handwritten note, a bottle of bubbly, and a copy of the ENGAGE Lookbook. Details like that? That's what making a difference looks like.



Next, a tour of the beauty The Design Co. had in store for everyone.


The VIP brunch looked pretty tasty...




And the swag bags were out-of-control full. 


And lastly, a few favourite photos from the show itself. Florals everywhere you looked, sequinned table cloths, chandeliers and candle light...it was a sight to see, my friends.




















It was such a pleasure to be a vendor at ENGAGE. Surrounding myself with such talented people in a place more beautiful than I could have dreamed...I enjoyed every minute.

  1. Hi Laura! I'm the model being done up in the photo above. I'm also co-owner of the agency that supplied the models for the fashion show (Power Model Management). We saw your booth at ENGAGE. Your work is STUNNING!! I'm glad you had a great time at the event. It was absolutely amazing, wasn't it? Hopefully we'll run into each other at another bridal event. Take care. :)
