At some point in the near (or distant) future, I plan on getting married. Actually.. it’s more likely to happen in the near future (within the next year or so) than in the distant future.. we’ll see. Anyway, I’ve been keeping up with the usual wedding blogs (Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes, 100 Layer Cake, Martha Stewart: Weddings, Ruffled, snippet & ink etc etc.. there are a ton on my Google Reader list) since it became evident that this major event in my life will be happening. Starting to file away inspirations and ideas (there are so many out there) and piecing together what I’d like the day to be like. Since this has been on my mind, how could I pass up a chance to attend Hitched??
Hitched is the wedding event brainchild of Paige Appel (of Bash Events), Kelly Harris (of Yes, Please) (or collectively of Bash, Please), and Audrey Woollen (of Urbanic Paper Boutique). The idea came up when these three ambitious and fabulous friends decided to put all their favorite wedding vendors (and inspirations) in ONE PLACE. Like a vintage/modern, fun, wedding EXPLOSION of all the best ideas. You can read more about their story here.
The event sold out a few days before, so I was lucky to have purchased my tickets over a month ago when I first heard about it (when they first went onsale??). So many of the vendors that I have already tagged in other SoCal weddings (bookmarked for inspiration) were at the event, along with some of my favorite wedding inspiration blogs. There are probably (or will be, within the next few days) pictures and recaps all over the SoCal wedding blogosphere, but here’s the event from my camera…
