Bridal Louge presented by By Your Side Events

Last Friday, I was invited to photograph a chic bridal and make-up soiree presented by By Your Side Events, a team of event and wedding planning specialists based in NYC and Atlanta, GA. It was a great way for people to meet some great people in the wedding industry,  including makeup artists, photographers (me!), DJs, and specialty vendors. The event was held at Salon Fringe, a newly opened salon in Amityville, Long Island. I braved the looong Friday evening traffic out to Long Island, and luckily I made it in time, as it was a lot of fun! Now on to some pictures from the night:

This is the front of Salon Fringe, which was decorated with posh boudouir-esque furniture.

 

Here are some details from the night:

Some yummy florals always make events look goooooood:

 

Food and champagne doesn’t hurt either!

           

 

Guests arriving and signing in

 

A bride was getting her hair done at Salon Fringe, I think it was a hair trial. It looked great! Love the messy grecian look, I am inspired to do that for my hair if I am ever in a wedding party again.

                   

 

The lovely Sharon Gray had some amazing pieces of jewelry for sale. She also does custom pieces for bridal parties and weddings, gifts, etc. and can work with any price points, which is great. I loved some of her big flower cocktail rings.

                   

 

 

 

Some details from the makeup area:

                   

                   

 

Here’s Mia from Bridal Lounge at work. Mia specializes in making you look great on your big day. She gave mini makeovers to attendees all night, and they looked great. She really knows how to accent your best features with the best colors.  A lot of attendees were very happy with their looks!

                   

                   

 

The finished results: classic and polished yet sexy!!

                   

 

                   

 

Eating the food! Yummy. There was a great spread of crudite, fruits, cheeses, charcuterie, and candy!

 

Here’s the event as it was just getting started, you can see my little vendor display right in the middle of the room! I had a picture frame with some prints, my business cards from MOO, and an album of recent work.

                    

 

I like how we used the seats with the hoods above them. It was so cute.

 

 

Having a drink and checking out the pretty jewelry

 

My Treasure, Your Pleasure, gave a rompy demonstration with some items I can’t mention on this G-rated blog. It was a big hit with the girls. They even have pole dancing classes you can take. They also do Bachelorette parties and showers.

 

There were games and prizes too during the presentation. Everyone had a good laugh at some of the games.

 

On a side note, this was the dramatic sky outside, right before it poured. Isn’t it nuts??
