The Bride Link Vintage Bridal Show

View More Photos

The Bride Link Vintage Bridal Show was a huge success thanks to all the supportive vendors and excited brides that attended! Thank you to Jan Hall for hosting the show at her gorgeous venue at The Reserve at Bluebird Hill.

Thank you also to the featured vendors that decorated every square inch of the property with gorgeous flowers, linens, food, cakes, and vintage furniture. I could not have done it without you all!

Thank you to my vendors for believing in me and giving me the encouragement I needed to make the show successful!

So here is just a little peek from Watson Studios of the fun, design, and entertainment that happened at the show. Everyone had a blast, so if you did not make it this time, stop by next year!



Flowers by Tammy

Tammy Philips provided the flower arrangements for both the Victorian and Breakfast at Tiffany’s areas at the show. Tammy is an absolute joy to work with, and her flower arrangements were breathtaking!!

Melissa Timm Designs

Melissa Timm stopped the brides in their tracks with her fabulous booth! This chest with the flowers flowing out was one of my favorite pieces of the show! She decorated the Shabby Chic area of the show with breathtaking pinks and cream arrangements.

This glass table arrangement is one of Melissa’s famous pieces of work that makes her unique. She added a few antique accents under the glass to go along with the vintage theme.

Always in Bloom

Jenny and Leonard are so wonderful to work with! They will go out of their way to make a bride’s vision come true! Jenny created this precious arrangement for her table as well as lovely floral accents for the arbor. She also created the soft pink flower arrangements for the vintage style shoot that was given away to bride, Katie Ogle, with Elizabeth Nord Photography.


The caterers at the show really wowed everyone with their amazing food! Everyone is still talking about how fabulous the food was at this show! My staff kept hearing brides and their guests wisper that it was the best food they have ever had a bridal show! I would like to shout out a special thanks to Abner’s Attic, Gibson Girls, and First Fruits Catering for going “all out” on the food selection!

First Fruits Catering (Chef Tony)

These expresso flavored cupcakes were incredible!! Yes, I admit, I had a few to-go boxes that I thoroughly enjoyed from Chef Tony’s buffet.

Gibson Girls Southern Goodies

A bride told me how excited she was to meet Gibson Girls so that they could make her a glutton free wedding cake!

The UPS Store (Lenior City)

Meet Robin from The UPS Store. The UPS store offers a lovely invitation option for brides.

Easy Knoxville Weddings

Misty Beiderman of Easy Knoxville weddings was the designer for the country section of the bridal show as well as the DIY tent. She showed brides a variety of decor and design options through DIY projects, vintage furniture, and other fun accents such as mini pumpkins, ribbon, and field games!

Sweet Beginnings by Elaine

Elaine Miller was the show’s featured cake artist. Her cakes are not only incredibly delicious, but she is truly gifted with the art of decorating wedding cakes!

Broadway Academy of Performing Arts, Logan Murrell, and Absolute Ballroom provided a sampling of the dance and music entertainment their companies provide. Below, is Jeremiah King, dance instructor at Absolute Ballroom, demonstrating the Waltz. Jeremiah also demonstrated swing dancing at the show.
Greg Carney is the lead hip hop instructor at Broadway Academy of Performing Arts. In order to represent the wide variety of dance instruction offered at Broadway Academy, Greg and his team demonstrated a jazzy hip hop performance, complete with 1920’s costumes, hats, and canes! They created a high energy performance that had the whole room excited!
When Logan started singing, the room literally stopped and stared. Sixteen year old Logan has a voice beyond her years that truly melts the hearts of anyone who hears it. Her voice and song choice is perfect for weddings, and she is known to learn new songs at a bride’s request.


Kristin and Casey Peddicord are a husband and wife photography and videography team in both the Knoxville and Nashville market. They are famous for their likable personalities, great customer service, and most of all, their outstanding work!


Ginny Hammond, distributor for Secret Minerals, had brides oohing and ahhhing over her amazing skin care system. Her great personality mixed with her fun demonstrations made her booth exiting and memorable.

Vintage Southern Wedding Rentals made this show so unique! Thank you to all the ladies on their team that worked so hard to make this show possible.
