New York Magazine and Brides Magazine wedding events

In the last few weeks I have had the chance to attend a few great NYC wedding events. The New York Magazine Wedding Event on April 1 at the Metropolitan Pavilion NYC is a can't miss every year. Many of NYC's top wedding vendors either have a table on display or come to network with others in the NYC wedding industry. I did a little bit of both, setting up a TV to show a video that I shot last summer at the Meadow Clubs and Dunes Church in Southampton. It was at that wedding I met Kim Pilson of the Wedding Sitter-a day of coordinator for the Hamptons and NYC- who played my video at her table. I also caught up with plenty of people including NYC wedding photographers Karen Wise, Sofia Negron, Ian London, Brian Dorsey, Timothy Lee, Kristine Foley, Karen Cunningham and Shira Weinberger to name just a few. In addition to catching up with these photographers, I was able to meet up with many others involved with NYC Weddings as well as catch some of the newest trends for 2009 and beyond. A few days later I attended the Brides Magazine wedding event where I caught up with more people including planners Leslie and Eyal from In any Event, NYC Wedding photographer Erik Ekroth, and planners Danielle Bobish (Curtain Up Events) and Christine Coppinger to name just a few. The food was delicious, company entertaining and the space incredible. All and all a perfect close Tim Alan Smith's week of wedding events!
