The Weddings by JDK team recently hosted our 2nd “Meet the Faces of Central Pennsylvania Weddings” Bridal Showcase on Sunday, October 23rd at our facility in Camp Hill, PA. We had a fabulous turnout and shared the experience with some local vendors. Brides-to-be along with grooms, parents and friends had the opportunity to learn about everything from menu selection tips to when save the dates should go out. See the photos captured by Lauren Fisher of Jeremy Hess Photographers and more from this first-of-its-kind bridal showcase.
“I had a wonderful time at the Weddings by JDK Showcase. Each of the vendors shared with us the upcoming trends for the next year, and they were very knowledgeable in their respective fields. One of the best things I enjoyed during my experience was the fact that everyone was full of ideas and willing to share (for free!). I learned so much, and it was fun just to dream a little bit. Thank you JDK!”
Upon arrival, guests of the showcase were greeted with chilled champagne or refreshing ginger ale. The beverages were accompanied by a gourmet trail mix bar with to-go bags to snack on throughout the afternoon. Jessica Meadowcroft of Love, Jessica Handmade Invitations created gorgeous escort cards to welcome our couples.
Our floral team composed some stunning pieces to coordinate with each session.
“The JDK open house was a very educational experience. The staff was very welcoming from when we walked into the door to when we walked out. It was very obvious JDK are professionals in the wedding planning and are not out there just to sell you. The sessions provided us with questions and thoughts to take with us during the planning our wedding.”
A variety of vignettes created a unique ambiance for each of the different wedding planning sessions. The topics included catering, event and floral design, vendor selection, and a special presentation about Central PA’s reality show, Dream Weddings. We even prepared pasta-to-order with tasty toppings for guests in attendance. You can read more about the event and the overall timeline here.
What a great time we had meeting everyone and sharing this experience with amazing vendors! It’s a moment we will never forget.
