I love the concept of the Winter Park Bridal Stroll. It’s not your usual wedding show. It truly allows the brides to enjoy the avenue at their leisure and really talk to the various vendors involved. Who doesn’t love the idea of enjoying some sweets and appetizers along with a glass of champagne while talking about their big day? We are honored to have partnered with CCH Weddings and Maureen Hall Stationary on this event for the last few years. We think the show really showcases the very best of our Orlando wedding vendors and helps to partner them with a particular bride. We also enjoy supporting the Winter Park area and are thrilled that it is the location of our wonderful show.
