About Mrs. Bee @ Weddingbee PRO

It’s taken me long enough to blog about this!  I’m waiting on some pro pics, but here are a couple pictures from my little Canon point and shoot from the Modern Bride Trendsetter Awards dinner earlier this month.

15mb.jpg 

It was a cold evening!  Thank goodness I had a lovely coat that I borrowed from Amy.  Here I am pictured with fellow trendsetter and hair accessory genius, Jennifer Behr.

16mb.jpg

Trendsetter Robert Kalt out of East Brunswick New Jersey.  He takes food, flowers, bridesmaid dresses — anything leftover from events like weddings — that he then donates to shelters, hospitals and charities.  How wonderful!

14mb.jpg

Seattle based couture caterer Lisa Dupar and of course a 2009 Trendsetter!

13mb.jpg

This was the only full shot I had of me in my Gustavo Cadile dress and Kara Ross earrings!

2mb.jpg

My hair and makeup by Ai Sakai that I loved so much.

17mb.jpg

Some of the evening’s celebrity presenters included Rachel Hunter and Christian Siriano…

121mb.jpg 123mb.jpg

Kristin Davis and Holly Robinson…

124mb.jpg 125mb.jpg

And Bethanny Frankel who was sitting at my table!  She gave me the scoop on the Real Housewives of New York — they’re all crazy! ;)

115mb.jpg

One lucky guest won a diamond necklace… it ended up being previous trendsetter and cake baker extraordinaire Sylvia Weinstock.  Sylvia always has the perfect and funniest things to say.

120mb.jpg

Susie Essman of Curb Your Enthusiasm did a hilarious comedy set!  You can see the heavy awards we each received in the bottom righthand corner.

18mb.jpg

Here I am with past trendsetter, floral designer Michelle Rago (who I’ll be speaking with at Engage 09!).

119mb.jpg

Former trendsetters: the charismatic Ron Ben-Israel, and photographer Terry Gruber (who has been the only photographer to be named a trendsetter to date!).

116mb.jpg

The fabulously gorgeous past trendsetter and videographer Kristen of Bliss Video Productions.

114mb.jpg

Mara Urschel and 2009 Trendsetter of the legendary Kleinfeld Bridal.

113mb.jpg 

Tara Guerard author of Southern Weddings (who was sitting next to me and I was excited to finally meet), and Lisa Dupar.

112mb.jpg

And finally Antonia Van der Meer, Editor in Chief of Modern Bride Magazine.

111mb.jpg

I forgot to take a picture with Preston Bailey, who graciously presented my award, but I felt so honored to have him (the most famous person in the wedding industry in my opinion ;) ) present my award.

There are no real awards or honors in the wedding industry, so a huge thank you to Modern Bride for hosting this fabulous event each year.  Several past winners I spoke to told me that winning the award represented a turning point in their business — now that’s power!

I’ll share more pictures as I get them.  For now… have a super fantastic weekend everyone! :)

Your dress Bee is AMAZING! Love your hair and makeup too. Congratulations.

It seemed as though it was an exciting yet elegant evening! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!

I also hope that magazines and wedding industry gives more attention to helping out people like Robert Kault and his organization which brings even more joy to others than those just attending the wedding! Kudos to Mr. Kault!!! He’s a real trendsetter!

Question..did you meet Kristen Davis? I’m a huge S.I.T.C. fan!!!

Mrs. Bee, you so picked the right dress! The shoes are to die for as well. I think you just highlighted to me how high-powered some of the wedding industry is. I mean I knew that there was some star power there, but not really how much. Congrats on being honored as one of the stars!
