Happy Friday everyone! At long last I have finally begun blogging again! As most of you know, I used to blog in our off season. However there really is no off season for us any more. If you check out the blog these days you will finally get a chance to see a lot of the events from 2013 and a few from 2014 http://anightinbloom.com/blog/ . I always try my best to blog only once I have all of the pro pics, but these days with photographers as busy as I am, I am going to consider all of our blog posts a work in progress. When I receive pro pics, I will add them on to our already published posts. I do still hope to continue our tradition of the Bloomie Awards, but first I need to get cooking with posting all of these little beauties. Please bear with me!
Since we are so busy we will be looking for additional help in nearly all areas this spring. We will have internships, general help, wedding set up and take down, and PR/ Marketing. Free lance floral designers are also more than welcome to apply. If you are interested in applying, please send a cover letter and resume to Lauren’s email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I attended the Unique Ladies of the Hudson Valley’s meet up last night https://www.facebook.com/uniqueladiesofthehudsonvalley and I really had a great time! This time the event was held at Nostrano Vineyards. What a spectacular location for weddings, I had a chance to peek at their wedding album and I really hope we have a chance to work there in the future! The wine was delicious too, so if you are hoping to visit, I really recommend that you do! http://nostranovineyards.com/ What made this event even more delicious were the cheeses provided by Clinton Cheese and Provisions, http://www.clintonprovisions.com/. And yes, my dear Hudson Valley couples, they will make you wedding “welcome baskets” filled with all local Hudson Valley Product. You’re welcome
I have attended quite a few of these events, run by Melissa Surprise http://surprisephotography.com/, in the past but this one seemed to gather a nice amount of brand new wedding businesses! There is nothing like meeting new entrepreneurs, just beginning their own adventures in the wedding industry. When I first began A Night in Bloom there were times where it was so difficult I just wanted to cry, but there is nothing more satisfying then when you persevere and actually end up with a successful business!
Please be sure to check out the following new businesses and show them some love:
North Country Vintage Rentals (yes, they have larger pieces such as couches, and upholstered items!),
Hudson Valley Brides (a new blog, coming soon)!
MV Photography (one of our Shirt Factory neighbors!)
I am sure I am forgetting a few more on here, so if I left you out, please message me and I will be happy to add you along!
That’s all for now friends, please stay tuned because there are so many wonderful things happening here in Flowerland, but also in Kingston these days! I have a LOT to catch up on!
Have a great weekend everyone!!!
