With another production season come and gone, we can’t help but reflect back on some of the great times shared by our own in-house team and vendors alike, usually in celebration of the close of another fabulous issue. This time, we’re checking back on our Brunch and Bowl partner appreciation party for a fun and intimate gathering of the minds to enjoy a day of entertainment and delight! Pinstripes was the obvious locale choice thanks to their entertainment and dining options including bowling lanes, bocce courts, an outdoor patio and Italian-American bistro. A menu of tasty bites and drinks was created for the occasion and displayed, featuring small sized noshes. Attendees were also all able to join in the live t-shirt screen printing demo hosted by Side Show Screen Print, who created the bright, beautiful, custom examples modeled by our team! We love the idea of adding in a t-shirt or accessory screen printing station to your wedding or couples shower events, treating your guests to a little something extra in addition to a fun party! Our photographer friend Deven Ashley Photography joined us in capturing the best moments from the day for all attendees to cherish!

We love having the opportunity to collaborate with some of the creative geniuses behind the brands that make the Brides of North Texas what it is today! We’re eternally grateful for the support of our local partners and always look forward to celebrating our work efforts jointly unfold to create the next great issue. Cheers to another wonderful chapter of creativity and wedding love!
