Tara Lynn Bridal just spent the weekend at Wed Altered in NYC and we met a fabulous array of designers, artists and vendors we think you are going to love working with.
First and foremost my favorite thing about New York City is the food. So lets start by telling you about Colleen Christi Willett the chef at Bread and Spoon that kept feeding us tasty little morsels. She uses fresh products from local and sustainable farms within 100 miles of Jersey City and NYC. She specializes in sugar free, dairy-free, vegan or egg-free deserts!
We met a fabulous designer of handcrafted, vintage hats and hair accessories, Jaya Lee of Green Trunk Designs. Her eco-friendly fashion accessories are made from vintage and re-purposed materials.
Have you ever wondered if there are options for flowers besides silks? Let us introduce you to Clay Me Art! Clay Me Art makes amazing and beautiful clay flower bouquets and wreaths. Their creations are gorgeous and the clay flowers look real! Using DecoClay Venera hand makes each individual petal by hand. Like your love, your bouquet will last forever. The petals are surprisingly durable and when I asked her how to clean them she says you simply blow them off with an air can.
For anyone looking for a unique and hand-painted invitation, we met a wonderful watercolor invitation artist! Hand-Painted Weddings makes other types of paper goods, as well, such as save-the-dates, menus, thank you cards, and more. The hand-painted invitations add a touch of personality and uniqueness.
The Ritzy Rose is another designer we loved! The Ritzy Rose makes brooch bouquets, jewelry, headpieces, and more. Their designs would add extra shiny flare to any wedding.
Nikki Miller of Mae B. Films made an awesome video of the WedAltered event which includes Tara Lynn Bridal. She is a NY based wedding cinematographer. You can view the WedAltered event video at www.vimeo.com/77813277.
We hope that you all love these designers as much as we do! The WedAltered event brought together many different kinds of designers, artists, and vendors who know that not every bride fits with the “traditional” wedding market. Any of these designers would go great with any of Tara Lynn Bridal’s dresses. We hope that you will check them out and consider the WedAltered event in 2014!
