Ya’ll need to sit down for this one! Back in February, Julep in San Diego played host to the most fascinating bridal show to date. We’re talking about an interactive, Pinterest-worthy wedding experience that blows minds! The Modern Love Event team did it again by gathering all of the most talented people in the wedding industry + letting them fly free!
If you can’t even begin to visualize this level of inspiration, let us paint a picture for you: a magical, interactive party put on by wildly talented professionals from the floristry, stationery, design, planning + attire wedding categories. Yes! It’s every-amazing-thing you’re imagining. Attendants were dazzled with an array of live demos, delicious treats, custom cocktails, and a slew of other genius ideas.
Now, for those of you that couldn’t make it out to San Diego, we’re dishing all the details here today. Inspiration overload in the best way begins right now-
Swoon! This cake palette was inspired by marshmallow and textured inspired by spray painted dried baby breath flowers – amazing job Peggy Liao Cake!
These juicy, bright colors are INCREDIBLE! Joy of Bloom Florals braved all these amazing pinks, oranges + yellows resulting in soft, sweet, modern magic.
More color bombs from the designers at Fawn Events — and what a stunning dessert display! We never wanted to leave this vignette. The treats were created by Peggy Liao Cake; coupled with the most inviting escort card display from Backup Backdrops + Velvet and Gold!
This lounge area was inspired by Australian cafes and the brilliant interior designers there. We still can’t believe the massive floral install from Layered Vintage with floating desserts created by Hey There Cupcake.
Dreamy, dreamy dresses paired with dewy makeup + romantic hair by XO Beauty Company!
Can you get over this Aussie-inspired scene?! We love those floating cakes.
Defiantly a little love drunk off this adorable vintage tap truck that is The Boozy Bee.
This dreamy garden-esque flower bar area by The Floral Craft doubled as a photobooth moment… always love when that happens!!
If you’re into irridescent rainbows + genius ideas…you’ll love this vendor highlight signage from Velvet Fox Designs as much as we do!
Serious ceramic sensations in these floral designs + vessels from Not Just in Novels! We’re just loving this palette.
Real modern menu here from Epoch Design, which goes really well with the minimal but romantic tablescape look.
Totally obsessed with the texture brought in by that fabric backdrop! It infuses so much color into their space. The floral chandelier from Fox And Flora Designs brings everything together + makes this a really magical space.
Pink floral table runner of our *dreams*; and we know you feel it, too! This magnificent creation by Tiny Victories has been on our minds ever since.
Wow this modern blue display from Witty Rentals really demonstrates the color in its many beautiful forms! We love The Dress Theory gowns against all the shapes + blue floral from Bloom Babes. Chic + captured by C&C Photography.
This cake lineup is a modern mic-drop! We’re obsessed with these sweet designs from Jennywennycakes.
A lush spread straight from the farmers market from MIHO, and an interactive pasta display that we’re still craving.
and pYou guys, this bar signage from The Roc Shop was next level creative! Mad props!
Cannot get enough of those boho chandeliers!
We want 1,000 of these ceramic tumblers from Hostess Haven!
