Akron Art Museum | Beloved Bridal Show, Akron Area Wedding Vendors

Hello Friends! I just wanted to share a few fun photos with you from the Beloved Bridal Show at the Akron Museum of Art. Beloved is a different kind of bridal show, its very laid back, and stresses a fun and creative show where area vendors can meet new brides as well as network with each other. The theme here is always community over competition, and its so lovely to have the time to meet new friends and find out about all of the amazing services that they provide. It also helps you, future couples, because now I have even more wonderful people and their services to recommend to you!


BELOVED is run by Leslieanne Lake, who puts her heart and soul into these shows. She curates the shows and vendors to create completely new experiences for the couples each time. The shows are also offered through the Northeast Ohio area all year round. You can find a show schedule here. Honestly, each time Im invited to participate Im so honored to be among the vendors!
