In one phrase, this year's What's Your Something Blue event was the place to be! Inside, guests were getting down on the dance floor while others enjoyed some top-shelf wine and delectable treats just outside. This was not your average bridal expo.
Our team was onsite long before the first guest arrived. Assigned to the lounge area, we set up our equipment and geared ourselves up for showtime. It hardly seemed like we'd taken the first piece of equipment out of its case before Allen was running around filming B-roll footage. At last, our new gimbal was being used on a shoot!
By 7pm, all the vendors were ready to go and the guests started to trickle in. Brides-to-be and their accompanying wedding parties hit the workshops, learning to make DIY flower headpieces and more! It was clear that both the dance floor and the workshops were the crowd-pleasers of the night, as they were super engaging and added a quirky twist to your normal bridal expo.
Over at our interviewing lounge, Tara Block, from POPSUGAR, interacted with guests on camera, asking about bridezillas, and, of course, the all-important question: what's your something blue? And for a bit of fun, Tara asked them to pick which celebrity -- Adam Levine, Ryan Gosling, Rihanna, or
Ashley Green -- they'd want at their wedding. Check out the second video below to find out who was the most popular celebrity wedding guest! Here at ISM, Allen picked Adam Levine, and Rihanna was a no-brainer for Tori. As for me, Adam would be my first choice, especially if he sang.
At the end of the day, our team had a great time. It was my first live event with Ivory Sky Media, and Alesia's as well, so it was a learning experience for the both of us. Seeing Tori and Allen in action, behind the camera or otherwise, was new and exciting. Meanwhile, Alesia and I were charged with mingling and promoting the raffle we were holding that night! So, stay tuned, because three lucky winners are in for a treat! The grand prize winner will receive free wedding videography, an engagement session, and a hair/makeup package for the shoot! Two other couples will receive an engagement session on us. Check back soon to see who won!
