Featured Vendor - Parisienne Girl Designs

Owner, Lori Meyer, began her love affair with jewelry as a young girl.  Lori spent hours with her great-grandmother, marveling at her jewelry collection and learning about the art of blending sparkly costume pieces with classic fine jewelry.  Parisienne Girl Designs was started five years ago to create modern, elegant jewelry using upcycled vintage costume jewels.  Lori's pieces capture a timeless elegance and thoughtfully pay tribute to the stories of each treasured vintage jewel.

The current collection of jewelry includes a rainbow of brilliant rhinestones, romantic pearls and vintage antiqued brass appointments.  Designs range from simple, elegant pieces to rococo, baroque beauties.
Lori's pieces are perfect for the bride and bridal party looking to wear something stylish, sophisticated, and forever fabulous.  "Nothing says ‘Romance’ like vintage jewels with their saturated colours, thoughtful details.  They lend a legacy of style and conspire to create nouveau heirlooms for modern brides and fashionistas."
Come meet Lori and see her gorgeous collection of Parisienne Girl jewelry pieces for sale at the NW Vintage Wedding Fair on March 31, 2012!

Sara Tro Photography - featured vendor and sponsor

We're very excited to share one of our event sponsors and favorite vendors, Sara Tro Photography.  Sara's photos are evocative, timeless and dreamy.  She was kind enough to share with us about her passion for photography, and a few shots that highlight her artistry and vintage sensibility. 

 "Photographing a wedding day as it unfolds is one of the most inspiring and touching things to take part in."

"I'm an old-school girl at heart, and so I use film, toy cameras and funky lenses alongside my pro digital system, in an effort to capture timeless, honest, and hauntingly beautiful images. I feel this brings a unique voice to your wedding collection, one that reflects your style and your love."

 "I also provide Super 8 Wedding Films, as an answer to the sometimes less-than-lovely wedding videos.  Super 8 has a luscious, quirky quality that resembles a dream.. A bit foggy, a bit blurry, but oh so beautiful in that blurriness.  There is no better way to capture the moving image than with this film-based medium."
"My clients often tell me, as I'm leaving at the end of the day, that I "feel like part of the family".  What an honor it is to be a witness and a friend on such a special day." 

We're pleased to present Sara Tro Photography to our vintage-loving brides as an event sponsor and featured vendor at the 3rd Annual NW Vintage Wedding Fair.  Pre-sale tickets available now.
Come meet Sara and learn more about what she has to offer on March 31, 2012!
