It’s been hard to keep this news under wraps! If you’re following us today on Insta Stories, you’re watching our Styled Social Philly LIVE with a stellar team of Philly vendors. And we couldn’t be more excited to announce about our first ever Bridal Social!
So whether you’re getting married or interested in capturing design-forward styled shoots, we’d love to have you join us at our Bridal Social at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts on November 4th, 2019.
Bridal Social for photographers
If you’ve heard of Styled Social, you’ll recognize the flow for the morning half of Bridal Social at PAFA. Photographers in limited groups can come shoot a wedding inspiration editorial featuring work from a handpicked team of high end vendors. We’ll have 3-4 totally distinct editorials that follow the same moodboard and color palette across the space at PAFA, and we limit each editorial to 5 photographers max so your done-for-you-editorial is that much more unique. Did we mention you can submit your gallery to any publication of your choice? We’ve seen past attendees picked up by Style Me Pretty, Martha Stewart Weddings, Green Wedding Shoes, 100 Layer Cake, Wedding Chicks and Equally Wed – to name a few. That could be you!
But the buck doesn’t stop here. Once you’re finished capturing your editorial, we’ll open the doors up to engaged couples to A) come experience the designs firsthand and B) connect with you personally. This isn’t your average bridal expo. We’re partnering with brands whose aesthetic aligns with our readers and thus, your ideal clients. So every little detail is intentional.
It will be a day of styled shoots then a bridal event meet + greet with couples in the evening. Styled Social + Bridal event …it’s a Bridal Social!
Is there really a better place for an abundance of inspiration than at an art museum?! Taking inspiration from PAFA itself, the mood is Tim Walker-meets-19th-Century-French-Painters. Romantic yet avan-garde, our Bridal Social is all about fine art romance for the modern couple.
Bridal Social for couples
On the flip side, we want to provide couples with an unforgettable experience that puts them right in the middle of wedding trends on the rise and lets them interact throughout the event.
Mingle and nosh with wedding vendors from all over the US, and walk away with inspiration, contacts and lots of new friends in the same boat as you! We’ll be there as well, and we cannot wait to meet you guys in person after all this time connecting virtually.
