The US Grant 2013 Wedding Showcase: Swoon4

This year The US Grant Hotel Wedding Showcase returned for it’s 5th year. The showcase is San Diego’s most talked about wedding show with a reputation for gorgeous and luxe vendor booths and ballrooms. Unlike most bridal shows it bases each show off a theme and the hotel hand chooses which vendors it invites to the show. This year’s theme was “Swoon4” and took guests on a luxurious journey thorugh Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall wedding styles.

I was fortunate to partner with the US Grant and their catering and marketing teams to come up with this year’s event inivtation and digital design. In return, I was the sole invitation vendor with a booth at the show. When I found out I would be participating in the show, I immediately looked to the talented Keli from Monarch Weddings and Bethany from Splendid Sentiments for their expertise.

Above is the laser-cut petal fold invitation that we custom designed for this show. It has one season in each corner and

is held together with a custom wax seal with The US Grant Hotel logo on it. ( It is one of my favorites!)

I am still in awe of how ridiculously talented Bethany from Splendid Sentiments is. Absolutely stunning floral design.

Keli from Monarch Weddings did a fabulous job styling our table. Only she could use an owl as the perfect decorative touch.

Again, I was so honored to be apart The US Grant’s Wedding Showcase. It was so fun to see so many talented vendors participate in the show and forWhimsique to meet the future brides of 2013/2014. Of course, we couldn’t have done it without the amazing Keli Christenson of Monarch Weddings and the creative genious of Bethany of Splendid Sentiments. I can’t wait to reveal all the unique and creative invitations that were designed because of this showcase. 2013 is looking good.
