Brides want swept away in to a world of fantasy where they are the queen. Far to often at wedding shows we miss the mark and the show becomes a tragic walk through of information gathering. Belles and Beaux was a dream come true. We broke that mold and created a whole new experience.
We had the perfect location. Chateau Des Fleurs is magical, the chandeliers, the big windows, the marble floor, and so much more. The Chateau is certainly the closest you will get to a European Palace in Idaho. Chateaus Des Fleurs is located in Eagle and is one of Idaho's newest venues. It has both indoor and outdoor options and has in house catering with service down to an art.
We had the perfect vendors. Our vendors were certainly the finest in the event industry, from lodging at The Grove Hotel to cakes from Flour Child, we had it all. This was the first official year of Belles and Beaux as a full wedding show. It was delightful to have such an exceptional group of vendors participating.
The ballrooms were transformed in to exhibit space. Many of the event professionals going all out like Sam Marvin Photography. Sam created a beautiful space for his brides to sit and chat and learn about his many services.
Belles and Beaux is specifically designed to be more intimate. The show where you get time with your vendors and can exchange dialogue in a very positive way. Providing an atmosphere that is less about mass information gathering and having the bride get overwhelmed with business cards and papers and more about finding out about the event professionals and understanding what the best fit for you, the bride, is. The information gathered is more direct and about the relationship building between professional and client.
We believe in raising the standard of excellence and taking it to a new level. Redefining what a wedding show should be. Helping the participating vendors market the show after the show. Building lasting relationships with the brides they met, the Chateau and IDoWED.
We had the perfect team. The staff at Chateau Des Fleurs was simply outstanding. Marcella and her team at I Love Boise Weddings handled the vendor relations, booths, show setup and more. IDOWED along with Tatum Productions assembled the fashion show team.
These beautiful men and women gave up there weekend to come be a part of this enjoyable time. They talked to brides, they walked around in some of the most wonderful dresses in Idaho, and last they killed it on the runway.
We had classes taught by experts including a makeup class "Everyday vs WeddingDay." Which was taught by Micalah Howard of MNM Makeup Studios and done with absolute perfection.
There was a storm outside but it did not take anything away from what was happening inside. "Don't rain on my parade."
We ended the perfect day with a proposal that is still being talked about, dinner at The Chateau, and dancing with music from VCInAudio. All the ingredients for a perfect event. VIBE You are a Very Important Bride and even if you missed this very important bride event we hope these photos help inspire you and direct you to some of the most wonderful vendors in Idaho.
Thank you to all the brides and grooms that came out. Gratitude to all of the event professionals for enjoying the first VIBE (Very Important Bride Event) and a big shout out to all the models. Thank you all so much!
