Say Cheese!!

What would The Lab be without an amazing photographer or 4!!! We are so excited to have Silvana Di Franco as one of our lovely photogs. Silvana is known for her incredibly soft images and her use of film and digital mediums. We are continuously blown away by her work and who wouldn't be. Silvana's work can be spotted on Style Me Pretty, Wedding Chicks, Ruffled blog and gracing the pages of San Francisco Brides magazine, just to name a few.


{Awesome Style} Plum Pretty Sugar

I'm excited to announce another lovely clothing brand taking part in The Lab. This loungerie company offers lots of great pieces for any bride-to-be as well as her whole crew. Who doesn't love getting ready with something pretty and awesome the morning of the wedding? You will also find a huge selection of pieces for everyday.

As you can see, the collection spans far more than lounge pieces. With scarves and even bow ties for the men, this is a site to check out for many of you wedding needs. Perfecto!

Can't wait to see you all there at The Lab along with Plum Pretty Sugar Loungerie.

{The Library} Spots Available


Though we have handpicked a group of amazing vendors to highlight at the event in January, we are pleased to announce Allison of  Engaged & Inspired and The Inspired Guide (and a Lab co-creator) is creating a curated library of vendors to extend beyond that group, because let's face it, there's far too much talent in Northern Cali to showcase in one event. Vendors in the Library will have a space to place collateral for brides and guests to view. We still have spots available in the following categories:

floral designers
cake/dessert designers
event designers
event planners/coordinators
paper designers
entertainment (DJ/Live music)

While it's open to all, there is a selection process. Please email us for an application to become a part of The Libary at The Lab!
