PWG Bridal Show - What a day!

What a great time we had at the PWG Bridal Show at the Durham Marriott on Sunday, September 14th.   We were able to catch up with some old friends, like Gary from Flower's by Gary, and made lots of new friends, like, Catherine Katz from Cherished Celebrations. 
     Gail and Jaime put on an awesome event and were so helpful in everything from set up to clean up.  They helped make sure our booth was situated in the best possible way for traffic and that my secondary display table in the Vendor Showcase was exactly what I wanted. 
   My crew of very talented ladies were awesome.  My mom, Nancy Stroud, did an awesome job creating a banner for our booth so that we would have our name "up there."  My best friend from college, Jennifer Nichols, was very quick at creating a flow to make sure that people got cake and inforamtion.  Alison Byrd, my part-time creative help, was awesome in helping me talk to all the brides, grooms, friends and parents as well as working in the capacity of scheduling cooridinator.  Without them I would have been totally lost. 
   Here are a few pictures of our cakes, crew and the event - enjoy!
