Yay! Indie Wed Chicago 2014
Wandering models, hula hoop dancers, mimes, and performers alike, hip bands, amazing food, independent artists....INDIE WED CHICAGO 2014!! I am so happy that my company with my business partner, cousin and BFF, Melanie Goldberg, ME Photography could finally participate as a vendor at Indie Wed, but I really never imagined how much work it would involve. Luckily, I have some much support from my family and friends, I do not think it would have been possible without them. I knew immediately when I found out ME Photography was accepted as a vendor that I would have to enlist my sister, Sarah's graphic design expertise. Not only did she design the layout and graphics for all of my printed handouts, business cards, and etc, she designed my booth space. Then there was Sean, Sarah's boyfriend, who pretty much built my entire display wall. I also have to thank Sean's parents, owner's of the company, Square Nail that provided the work-space to build this fixture. My cousin, Emily who worked as my assistant and as my display stylist during "Indie Wed", which included waking up before sunrise to work with me on the day of the actual event. My sisters Jennifer and Annie were continually there for me too. Jennifer as always was my personal stylist and Annie came out in the middle of a blizzard to bring lunch for me and Emily. My boyfriend, Brad that drove and assisted me during the set-up and disassemble times at Indie Wed. And of course that you to all other friend and family, that supported me physically and mentally in other ways. So, THANK YOU, THANK YOU TO ALL!!!
Indie Wed was really blast! I really cannot believe how many people braved the snow storm to show up to this event. Not only was this experience a great way to meet other businesses in the industry and to promote my business real couples, it was very much a learning experience. I know this will not be my last alternative wedding expo that I will attend. And I can't wait for my next adventure into the wedding fair world!
