Summer Soiree: A Swanky Little Bridal Event (The Vandlandingham Estate: Charlotte, NC)

As you may recall–BlueSky partnered up with the lovely Alicia LaLone over at Wedding Row Charlotte to create a new bridal event in Charlotte designed to be an ‘alternative to traditional bridal show (not ‘knocking’ bridal shows…we do them and meet lots of great brides.  However,  we wanted to create something a bit more intimate and targeted more for a bride and her ‘girls.’ A glamorous, evening affair vs. a daytime/convention center type event.)   From there: Soiree’ was created!   ….She is a swanky little affair!  Filled with wedding  inspiration, amazing florals, tasty treats and ending with a high-energy bridal fashion show! (even rain could not stop the fun of this inaugural event!)
For those who may have missed Soiree’ this go-around, below you will find some of the images captured by our very own team of photogs here at BlueSky! (and…shhh.. Winter Soiree’ is in the works!)  Note:**its a HUGE post..but we are SUPER proud of this event:-)
We want to extend a  HUGE thank you to all our  amazing event sponsors and participating wedding professionals for making this inaugural fete a great success! (See a glimpse of how they can help your wedding day become the memorable event of a lifetime below and be sure to check all of  them out online HERE.)
