Get ready for the Lab Event 2013

After having such a great time last year, we are thrilled to be participating in the Lab Event in 2013! The Lab Event is a big party containing amazingly styled vignettes created by some of the top trend-setting wedding industry professionals Northern California has to offer. In a laid-back setting, couples experience inspiration boards brought to life, sips and bites from some of the best caterers, sweets and treats from top dessert designers, a vendor library, a non-traditional runway show, and one heck of a party to round out the night. Northern California brides, if you haven’t purchased your tickets already – we’d definitely suggest you do so ASAP by clicking here. They always sell out and time is running short.

This “Peony Pop” inspiration board was submitted through Snippet & Ink and chosen by the Lab to be recreated at the event. Below are some favorites from the Pinterest board we were assigned.

Peony Pop | The LAB 2013

Our favorite part about the event is the creative collaboration it inspires. Each vendor is assigned to a team and we couldn’t be happier to be part of the group bringing this board to life! Here’s an overview of the amazing wedding vendors that we’re lucky enough to be working with on the Peony Pop vignette:

They offer everything from full service planning and design to consulting, and have done a great job pulling the vision for our vignette together.
