On Saturday, February 1st, David had the most wonderful day at a Mon Cheri Bridals trunk show at J Birds Bridal, a beautiful bridal boutique in Culver City, California. The store opened in July of last year and is owned/operated by two sisters, Jennifer and Jessica, who are so very sweet. Their grandmother used to call them her “J Birds”, hence the name. Their father is in construction so he helped them build the location and the building where the boutique is located is owned by their grandfather, so it is truly a family business, which is just wonderful.
The trunk show was such a fun time for all and the appointments were booked up way before the big day arrived! It really was such a well executed event, complete with mimosas when entering, cake pops and cupcakes in the boutiques colors, along with other delicious snacks and romantic music playing in the background. One of the really great decor items in the boutique that David just loved were the girls’ grandmothers’ wedding gowns in a glass display with the year that they were worn in a little frame next to each.
David so enjoyed meeting all of the brides and their loved ones and having the chance to give them advice and help them choose the wedding dress of their dreams. There were tons of happy tears shed during this wonderfully festive day filled with lots of emotions and joy, which Destination Wedding Photographer, Richard Clarke of Clarkie Photography, was there to capture. Richard got some incredible shots of the brides’ reactions to finding their dress, but we of course can’t share those and spoil the surprise before their big day! But, you’ll see in the photos of the many family members and friends that were there just what a happy day it was!
