It felt SO good to be back for Bride’s Night at Barrister Winery this year! It’s hard to believe we have been hosting this curated boutique bridal show with Apple Brides since 2013. Each year we feel like the event evolves and improves. This year was no different.
In case you missed it, we wanted to bring you a little recap of the fun evening. We had so many talented vendors and SO much inspiration for our couples. Sponsored by Beacon Hill Catering & Events and Barrister Winery this is an annual event that so many new brides and couples look forward to!
This year, guests were greeted in the Barrister courtyard by the Harestream’s Dolly airstream RV – fully equipped to meet any bride’s hair and make-up needs – as well as some bold lit lettered signs by Alpha Lit Upon check-in guests received their swag bags with goodies from vendors involved in the show – we adored the aromatic bath bombs from Rose & Blossom and fresh lotions from La Rive Spa at Northern Quest. Within minutes guests had Barrister wine in hand and were off to meet vendors.
Beyond our Beacon Hill appetizer like Grilled Pesto Beef Skewers, Blackbean Sliders, and Caramelized Onion Dip, guests enjoyed Eat John Dough cookie dough, Fannie’s Ice Pops and and more tastes of Barrister wines. Having so many goodies to enjoy and a fun atmosphere provided by Imagine Events by RCP, makes mingling with talented vendors like photographers Jennifer DeBarros Photography and La Belle Bella and stylists like Luxe Salon even more fun!
Wedding inspiration was in every corner with vignettes sponsored by some amazing local vendors. Rose & Blossom put together a stunning colorful and classic duo for aisle inspiration and Bloem brought contemporary centerpieces to light up the barrel room. These gorgeous florals complimented premier rentals from Event Rents and Patina Rentals, as well as stunning custom designed print goods by Mango Ink and Ink & Embers. Among the vignettes were model brides (and a groom!) fitted by Heirloom Bridal, Honest in Ivory and Tuxedo Gallery and styled by Sweet Peach and Harestream.
This year it was just so fun to GATHER and have such a fun, interactive event! Our brides and their gal pals really enjoyed free snaps from Funnybooth photo booth and getting a glimpse of live event painting by Van Gogh and Merlot. After announcing giveaway winners for custom gowns, free goodies, and bottles of wine, guests and vendors left truly inspired to plan and create the most beautiful Spokane weddings! Can’t wait to do it again in 2023!
