Urban Unveiled

Thursday night I attended the Urban Unveiled event at Benaroya Hall. I received two free tickets from Clare at Clare Marie Photography. Upon arriving I was pleasantly surprised, the cocktail party/trade show was truly sophisticated and stylish as advertised. I always get a little nervous when it comes to bridal events, they are usually a lot of hype but end up disappointing. This one was anything but disappointing, if you are a bride or just enjoy all things wedding this event is thee event to attend. I was impressed by pretty much everything from the elegant paper goods provided by Little Q Designs, the classy set up's by Rented elegance, even the music from NiteLite Entertainment was right on point. My friend Cathy and I had a good time checking out the vendor booths (which were not trying to pressure sell you like other bridal shows), sampling food from some great local catering companies (Tom Douglas and Wolfgang Puck just to name a few!) and sipping champagne.

My favorite vendors were:
Clara French where you can get a custom made cake stand made in custom colors to match any event or taste. Don't wanna buy? You can rent too!
Sugar Rush bakeries mini cupcakes... I had two, one mocha & one lemon YUM!!!
Lumiere videographers who can shoot in super 8 which I Love Love Love! I stopped to talk with Jaro, he was super nice and I got the impression that working with him and his team would be a wonderful experience. Check out their demo's!

The main event was the Luly Yang Couture Fashion Show. Luly showed three collections which ranged from classic styles to cute cocktail style dresses to some real concept style Tiffany blue dresses and even a couple sliver sparkly numbers. Overall I enjoyed the show I did feel that some of the items didn't look very finished especially for someone with Luly's notoriety. A few of the garments were wrinkled and more than a few had crooked or very noticeable seams. And I know fashion, I mean I've watched every single episode of Project Runway! ;) Picture me judging every garment just as if I was Micheal or Nina! Hahaha

The night ended with the give away raffle of some fabulous prizes, which I didn't win but congrats to those who did because there was some great ones! All in all I had a great time even despite being harassed by a hottie policeman and feeling like I had a hangover from the mix of mini cupcakes and champagne it was good times!
