Super excited to be apart of the upcoming Love Tour and I would love to see you there too!

About the Love Tour:
The Love Tour is a boutique bridal bash curated for the modern couple to be inspired by talented wedding professionals. Co-founded in 2010 by Zoom Theory and LVL Weddings & Events, the Love Tour has made nine stops throughout California from Orange County to San Francisco.

The fall 2013 tour is October 23, 2013 at Rancho Las Lomas in Silverado. This restored early California rancho offers a private and intimate atmosphere, set amidst exquisitely manicured botanical and zoological gardens.

Guests will enjoy a glass of OneHope wine while snacking on hors d’oeuvres from 24 Carrots. Also featuring Sweet Lucie’s ice cream, florals from Inviting Occasion and gorgeous furniture from Found Vintage Rentals, Blush Bridal Couture, {and me} AmpersandInk Designs just to name a few. The Love Tour will help you make a major dent in your wedding to-do list. Live music, a vintage photo booth, awesome giveaways, and even real tigers that will have couples roaring!

Tickets are $20 and include valet parking.

SMP is running a contest for tickets here.
