Bridal fairs really aren’t my bag. They’re overwhelming, noisy, kinda cheesey, and by the end of the day you swear you will never attend another one again. On the other hand, there is a rising number of smaller boutique bridal fairs popping up that are more intimate, fun, and most importantly, only a couple of hours long 🙂

So when I was invited to join them for the Fifth Annual Bridal Fair up at Semiahmoo Resort for their intimate gathering, I was excited! Semiahmoo Resort has been voted Best Destination Wedding Venue by the readers of Seattle Bride Magazine repeatedly, and is a beautiful place for some r&r. On the beach of cute little Canadian border town of Blaine, Washington, Semiahmoo Resort has a golf course and a spa, and a variety of rooms, docks, and patios to have your ceremony. I had the pleasure to photograph Carrie and Adam’s super fun wedding there this last summer, and loved every minute of it!

The bridal fair is next Sunday the 17th of February, so if you’re even remotely considering a destination wedding, or a local wedding if you’re in the North end of the state, come by and visit us! It’s only a couple of hours from Seattle, after all, and afterward, you can cross the border (don’t forget your passport) and go shopping at White Rock. Kelly and I will be there all day (in fact, we’ll be heading up Saturday to stay as guests and really experience what the resort has to offer!), and we’d love to chat with you in between the site tours, fashion show, and tastings! They prefer if you RSVP so that they can plan their goody bags, so do it and come visit!!
