NY Bridal and Quince Expo Courted Brides-to-Bes & Quinceaneras
It was an exciting evening at the NY Bridal and Quince Expo which took place on Tuesday, courtesy of some of the most talented event vendors – everything from invitations, beautiful décor to fancy dresses. For a first time event it was an overall spectacular presentation with a huge turnout, and NLL was there to capture it all. The expo which is the brainchild of Karina Jimenez, though Latino focused courted brides-to-bes and quinceaneras of diverse cultures, nailing the mark as per their tagline... DIVERSE, FRESH, VIBRANT.
When the doors opened at 5:00 p.m., there was a line already waiting to check out the many NY Bridal and Quince Expo exhibitors that decked the entire first floor of The Museum of Moving Images located in Astoria, Queens, NY. Master of ceremonies was Steve Blake of Groove New York, while Finer Touch Entertainment rocked the house displaying their diverse musical background. There was a fashion show that featured elegant quinceanera dresses by celebrity designer Adan Terrique; followed by Burju Shoes featuring wedding, cocktail and evening dresses from the Disney Cinderella Royal Ball Collection, Cesar Galindo and Amour Bridal Gowns.
The NY Bridal and Quince Expo gave away some amazing swag and door prizes from sponsors which included Devotions Diamond, Modern Brides Magazine, Quinceanera Magazine, and Dinner 4 Two; and media partners including the knot, Association of Bridal Consultants, Univision, Telemundo, News 1 NY, Brides Against Breast Cancer, and of course your very own Nicole’s Lifestyle Lounge.
I had a chance to connect with some of the glowing brides-to-bes, grooms and quince girls, as well as some awesome industry professionals – Association of Bridal Consultants’ New York Director Jacqueline Vazquez, VP of The Holistic Chamber of Commerce Loren T Clark, Eve Santi of One Crowning Glory, and fellow makeup artist Rosemary Q, to name a few.
Congratulations to all the intended brides and the young ladies celebrating their quince birthday!
