Open house calls

I was honored to be invited by Tracy Heine to her open house at LaBella Bride of Zionsville last night. Tracy and I met as booth neighbors at a bridal show a couple of years ago, and I was immediately impressed with her business smarts and fashion sense, not to mention her sweet demeanor. She’s been great to me ever since, so there was no way I was going to miss her open house. I had a wonderful time there with Tracy, and it was great to see Stacy and Mary and Jessica Strickland there as well. My eyes probably started glazing over when the ladies (I just now realized I was the only guy there) started talking about the gowns, but I can just blame it on that mysterious “punch” they were serving. Anyway, thanks for a wonderful time, Tracy!

I’ve always wanted to check out the Premier Bridal Connection weekly open house, so this was a perfect opportunity, since it was right on my way home. Not sure what I was expecting, maybe something like a formal bridal show with fewer vendors, but I was pleasantly surprised by the casual, laid back atmosphere. I can see why this has been such a successful, pressure-free environment for brides to drop in and scope out some truly top-notch services. I’ve only recently gotten to know Jeremy Gearries of DJs Direct, but it’s already obvious the guy has a new idea every minute bursting out of his head. Kind of like me, but with the personality to sell it. The best part, and main reason I dropped in, was to say “hi” to Brandon and Cybil New of B&C Digital Media, since we don’t get to chat nearly as much as we should. I have a lot of respect for them as artists, and even more so as people. I hope they didn’t mind staying the extra hour to chat. It can sure take a while to catch up!

    Thanks for stopping in Bob! It was nice to chat with you too. And we didn’t mind a bit staying until 10……we enjoyed the company. Come by again sometime!
