OC Brides at Newport Harbor Nautical Museum

by Robin Kelly, Essence Entertainment

Main Entrance

Nautical Museum Patio

What a lovely evening!

The temperature and the breeze were perfect, the sail boats glided by out on the bay, everyone was in a good mood and we all enjoyed the libations and social community!
Mike and Robin became better acquainted with a few of the OC Brides Board Members, notably Founder Cindy Lieber, Debbie Christensen (The Wedding Guide), and Dave Greenwood (Dijital Engagement).  Dawn Harman (Portraits by Dawn) was busy taking photos to capture the event and its attendees.  Beth DeGiacomo (White Feathers Events) was busy at the Registration Table.

Mike being served

The libations were delightful and appropriate for the outdoor setting (see Caterers listed on Wednesday’s Blog).  Dave Greenwood provided an eclectic and very enjoyable selection of music.  All of the Vendor Tables looked fabulous!  (…again, see listing on Wednesday’s Blog.)
We met a few folks we haven’t seen in a while – Rick Rosen (Rosen & Associates Photography) is someone we used to see regularly at ABC Events – it was great to see him again and get caught up.
Jim “Woody” Woods & Mike

Jim “Woody” Woods is someone Robin went to school with (CSU Long Beach) who is developing his photography career.  Always great to see Woody!

Janis Dinwiddie of Dinwiddie Events


Janis Dinwiddie of Dinwiddie Events was a gracious Hostess and warmly Welcomed everyone.
A member that Robin met at last month’s event was also there…again with her beautiful Vendor Table – Kristy von Waldburg ( – an Arbonne Rep.  It was great to see Kristy again and chat…share ideas about other women’s networking events, etc.

The Nautical Museum was welcoming and interactive.  If you haven’t had an excuse lately to visit Balboa’s Fun Zone…enjoy the Bay, have lunch…then I encourage you to plan a visit to Balboa Peninsula!  Be sure to bring the kids, as the Museum has a lot of ‘kid friendly’ exhibits and events.

Premier Bridal Show at St. Regis

What a fantastic bridal show at the St. Regis yesterday (July 1, 2012).

Beth DeGiacomo at the OC Brides Booth
Beth DeGiacomo brought her beautiful Crystal Tree and Candalabra to display at our OC Brides table.  DiJital Engagement provided the music for the fashion show.  As mem bers we combined our tables and ran a slideshow of some of our favorite Networking events on the big screen!

The brides and vendors alike were excited to hear about our upcoming Bridal Networking Event at the Hacienda on July 18th.  The show was nice a quaint with upscale brides.

Some of our favorite booths were the Sugar Mamas and Wildflower of San Clemente (who we wold love to have join us at OC Brides) and Flawless Weddings and Events who is already an OC Brides member.

Sugar Mamas coated Oreos with edible glitter!
Love this Florist but don't see a company name

Flawless Weddings & Events

And we had a great time in the ePod talking photobooth.  Neil, who I call the Wizard as in the wizard of Oz, has redefined both Photo Booths and FUN! Their team of Engineers, Craftsmen and Hollywood Entertainers have blended Innovation with Imagination to create the world’s ONLY “Talking” Photo Booth! While waiting for our photos we watch live video of the group that went in after us.  It is so much fun to watch!  I hope "The Wizard" joins OC Brides so I can share this with you too!

Thanks to Premier Bridal Shows for putting on such a great event at the St. Regis Resort.  Beautiful Southern California day, Beautiful Venue, Beautiful show!
