May the Force be with you... Helping a Friend

Went to Franklin, TN this past week to help out some of Jenni's friends open up a new store called Wedding 101. Actually the concept is pretty ingenious.. a virtual wedding directory/retail boutique. Space can be rented out in 3 tier levels from photographers, planners, designers, event locations, rental companies, caterers, etc. When done, their space looks like a 3d magazine advertisement for the potential bride to see, touch, smell, etc. Pretty cool!

Our first order of business from the boss woman was to rearrange their retail area. It was definitely in need of some Vintage-Flea TLC. You can see on the right side a project runway style dress that Jenni and I made for the vintage mannequin. The close up picture is the gorgeous trim made from coffee filters and left over tulle.
The next day we continued with the clean up and set up. That evening was the cocktail party to welcome all the new vendors and for the opening of wedding 101. We walked in through a gorgeous hand made awning with their logo attached and found our name tags.

Here is a sampling of our party.. wedding displays from cake chiefs, photographer displays, bridal gowns from a designer... then the delicious food from the caterers.
A toast to each other. Amy & Ashley, I wish you tons and tons of success!!
May the force be with you. -Yoda
