Waterfront Wedding ExpoAfter hours of promotion, set-up, and mingling we’re able to sit back and kick our feet up with a successful tented wedding expo under our belt. The idea to hold such an event came about in a planning meeting for our fall expo, Lovestruck Boutique. Known in the area as a premier location for tented wedding receptions and outdoor ceremonies, rehearsal dinners and bridal showers we knew it was something we had to pursue this spring.

Hosting an outdoor expo allowed brides-to-be to experience firsthand the ambiance of a tented wedding on our Great Lawn, surrounded by the beautiful views of the marina and Grand River. It was with the help of The Rental Company and Eastern Floral of Grand Haven that we were able to bring the tent to life with draping, chandeliers, tablescapes for inspiration and beautiful floral arrangements.

Vendor giveaways were announced throughout the event as brides-to-be filtered through the tent. The sunny skies eluded us from the cool tent as we encouraged brides-to-be to “dig in” at their chance for the grand prize provided by Wind Dancer Charters, an ultimate romance package, and $5 gift cards. Sifting through the sand for trinkets representing the above prizes winners were announced and delivered their well-deserved prizes on the spot.

The event concluded at three with tear down just as it had begun with luggage carts, lots of muscle and follow-up to occur. With that being said, we’d like to personally thank all those that attended as well as each vendor; not only for their attendance but for their generous giveaways.

We encourage you whether you were able to attend or not to check out each of our dedicated premier lakeshore vendors: Dance Tracks, Desserts by Design, Eastern Floral, The Rental Company, Holli Ann Studios, Treat Yourself Cupcakes, Ideal Image and All Weather Seal.
