Behind the scenes at the Bling 2011 wedding show

Finally we have some time to take a breather after the busy wedding season and I wanted to share with you some behind the scenes setup and install of our booth at the Bling show.   I was up on the ladder starting to arrange the all the hydrangeas and green dendrobium with a floral knife at 5 am in the morning.  You should have seen my sleepy eyes! :) Took me longer than I anticipated and I thought I was going to falling a sleep on the ladder. :)

At last,¬†we were able to spend a bit of time in the Rosewood Hotel Georgia as we booked a room for us and our staff that were working with us at the late night. We also had weddings the night before that and required 1 am take down from nearby so I knew we won’t be able to go home that night.¬†¬†The pictures will show you how¬†beautiful the room at Georgia hotel was and the bathroom was breath taking! It would be great in the near future to stay there again!¬† I think it is also¬†a great room for bride to get ready on her wedding day since it has huge bathroom with two his and her vanities!¬† Enjoy the photos!
