About Mrs. Bee @ Weddingbee PRO

I woke up at 7:20 this morning after one hour of sleep to attend the special wedding edition of the Martha Stewart Show with Kim.  Now my sleeping schedule is messed up, but it was definitely worth it! I’ve been to the taping several times in the past, but this was my favorite to date because it was the weddings show… and I was sitting in the front row!

I dream of having a kitchen this beautiful one day!

A sneak peek into the cooking area. Candy innovators Papa Bubble were on the show, so there were colorful candy arrangements all over the set.

Darcy Miller, Editorial Director of Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine, is one of the biggest celebrities in the wedding industry, and has what many consider to be the ultimate dream job.  The last time I attended a taping, Darcy came over to say hello and take a picture with me.  The girl sitting next to me said, “Wow I’m so impressed… Darcy Miller knows who you are!”  I hope some of her talent rubs off on me via osmosis. :)

Darcy always looks fabulously stylish, but can you believe she had a baby just a couple weeks ago?!  I loved her outfit!  Meanwhile it looks like I have a Vanilla Ice eyebrow and a stain on my dress, but I swear it’s just the lighting!

They suggest you wear bright colors, but I have nothing to wear since I work from home in my pajamas.  So I ended up wearing a gray White & Warren sweater dress that I got from Gilt Group. :)

You can see the very colorful audience members below who heeded the “wear bright colors” advice.  And check out the heart gobos in honor of Valentine’s Day — Martha is all about the details.

Darcy’s DIY Valentine station.  She sent out DIY Valentines weeks after having her third child, whereas I haven’t even sent out Christmas cards in the past 5 years. :P

This is what you’d see between the kitchen and the craft area. 

Lights!

Camera!

Action!  One of the crafts on the show was how to apply glitter to flowers.

The ultimate inspiration board!  Drool!

The craft stage.

Oo lala what a gorgeous bouquet!

This cake may be familiar because it was featured on the cover of the Winter 2009 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings.  They applied inexpensive fabric butterflies to a plain fondant cake for an affordable and dramatic presentation.  When Mr. Bee saw this picture, he thought it was so cool! ;)

I’ve always respected Martha Stewart immensely as a savvy businessperson, long before I ever started working in the wedding industry.  She has had a profound effect on how we think about entertaining, weddings, cooking, gardening, and design, and her accomplishments in print, television, radio, and merchandising are indisputably impressive.  I know that I could never keep up the extraordinary pace she has throughout her entire career.  Plus — she’s still gorgeous!  Um… can you tell I’m a fan? ;)

A huge thanks to Agnes at Martha Stewart who invited me to the taping, and has been so kind to me and Weddingbee from the beginning.  

After 3+ years in the wedding industry, I have to say… it’s still a lot of fun. :)

PS - Happy Valentine’s Day!
