Every year at the end of Bridal Market, Martha Stewart Weddings throws an amazing bash to celebrate. However, this years party was extra special because it was the 20th Anniversary of the publication. Normally held at MSLO’s headquarters, they surprised everyone as it was hosted at the resplendent Pierre Hotel. I have always wanted to attend this event so to be included on the staggering guest list was an honor. Along with MS employees, industry peeps and colleagues of all kinds; every bride and groom featured in the magazine was invited to attend. Obviously they all couldn’t make it but many did. Martha herself was there and so were many other famous faces. The images and my story below don’t do the party justice, nothing short of being there could. Just know that it was everything you’d expect and more…

Chelsea from Tidewater and Tulle, Me and Jessica from The Budget Savvy Bride had a wonderful time and just about closed the party down.

Before the event started, I had the pleasure of meeting Darcy Miller the Editorial Director of Martha Stewart Weddings. She gave me (and a few cameras) the inside look at this platinum-bash before the doors opened. Total fan girl moment for me!

We were welcomed by David Stark Design’s large love bird topiaries with a darling banner that read “tweet, tweet, love is sweet!”.

The Martha Stewart Crafts Team created a fab backdrop for the always fun SmileBooth which Jessica from the Budget Savvy Bride and I took full advantage of.

Among the ultra chic companies included in the affair, two of my favorites were there. Wedding Paper Divas gifted us all with DIY stationary while Sugarfina handed out their popular (and my fav!) champagne gummy bears!

Duff from Charm City Cakes not only made this beauty for all of us to enjoy but he attended the event as well. Side note: has anyone tried his box cake mixes from the market? They are so good, now they are the only ones I’ll buy.

We also devoured darling individual ice cream cups from Steve’s Ice Cream.

It’s safe to say that this was the event to be at. Thank you Martha… and everyone else for such a wonderful end to an amazing week!
