Never have two hours been more worthwhile at The Proper Petal than when we finally got to stand back and see our completed flower wall at the Dogwood Brides Launch Party this past March. Seeing something that you've dreamed up, meticulously planned out, and had others love as much as you do come to life is an awesome feeling. And to then look around the room at all of the carefully planned details by The Darling Event and how they made Dogwood Brides' brand come to life made us even more appreciative of the collaboration we were so fortunate to be a part of. We then got to meet and mingle with so many of Richmond's talented wedding professionals, which was such a valuable experience for our budding business. The icing on the cake, however, was to have this collaboration featured on Best Friends for Frosting a couple weeks ago. Be sure to check out the feature for more of V.A. Photography's beautiful images as well as more of Dogwood Brides' story. And of course if you're a bride or wedding vendor in the Richmond area, take advantage of the amazing resource Dogwood Brides is now providing. From vendor listings, to a blog chocked full of inspiration, to day-of coordinating services, these ladies have truly created a one stop shop resource for Richmond brides! Cheers to a successful road ahead for our sweet friends at Dogwood Brides, and a heartfelt thank you for including us in your launch celebration!
