Where can future brides and grooms sample a piece of Sylvia Weinstock cake, admire the latest Vera Wang couture wedding gown, and get Bobbi Brown beauty tips, all under one roof? At venues from Los Angeles to New York, where Wedding Salon founder, Tatiana Byron, has organized a one-day luxury wedding showcase boasting some of the top vendors in the industry, introducing big-day ideas from top area vendors such as The Registry at Bloomingdale's, AMResorts, Lancome at Bergdorf Goodman, The Container Store, Magnolia Photo Booth, and celebrity wedding experts. Each event is designed to make attendees feel like guests at a sophisticated wedding, only the fellow partygoers might be celebrity wedding planners David Tutera or Colin Cowie, or dessert connoisseurs from Carlo?s Bakery ?the bakery behind TLC?s Cake Boss.
Byron has been cultivating her all-star connections for more than a decade. After working at Turner Broadcasting System and directing sales, marketing, and production for a trade-show company, she created her own planning company, 4pm Events. Byron began coordinating parties for famous faces including Joan Rivers, Mary J. Blige, and Lionel Richie?no easy task, given the limited number of vendors willing to build dance floors on the ceiling. Byron went on to create Wedding Salon expos to give future brides a taste of celebrity-caliber elegance. She also offers educational wedding boot camps that help duos avoid hidden costs and learn tips for planning their special day. Byron's services have been highlighted in numerous media, including features in the New York Times, the New York Post, and Fortune Small Business.
Doctors Vincent Facchiano and Jillian Phelps ogle oculars and inspect irises with thorough examinations and cutting-edge technology. During the eye exam, an optometrist will check the internal and external health of your peepers before administering a series of visual acuity tests to assess your visual coordination and focus ability. The comprehensive exam also includes a glaucoma test and a digital retinal photograph, which provides a high-resolution retina head shot, perfect for aspiring ocular stars and optical comedians. The eyeball-focused photograph checks for macular degeneration, retinal detachments, and optic-nerve disease. If contact lenses are recommended, patients will receive a complimentary contact-lens fitting, after which they can outfit their orbs with a pair of pupil-huggers chosen from the expansive eye emporium, which features more than 1,000 lenses of varying brands.
Olan Mills Inc. provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to re-create the look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
As a youngster, Edward Weiland loved to visit the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Yosemite National Park with his family—always with his camera in hand. These experiences became the foundation of his style, a combination of fine-art photography and free-flowing photojournalism peppered with traditional poses. The key to Edward’s success is his high level of energy, which not only makes him quick on the draw when he’s hunting for candid shots, but also helps him establish a rapport with kids and families. However, he can also maintain a calm disposition when he needs to, as when he’s taking portraits of newborns as they slumber in their mothers' arms or yawn in their Russian literature professor’s face.
Often Edward’s images contain clear, crisp colors with slightly heightened saturation to make them more memorable. It’s these tones newlyweds will see if they hire Edward to make for them a custom fine art wedding book, each of which is designed by a graphic artist and hand made in Italy.
