An Evening of Elegance

Cary Magazine hosts its fourth annual Weddings Gala

Brides-to-be are invited to celebrate their engagements and plan all the important details with an unforgettable evening of food, fun and live entertainment from 4:30–8:30 p.m. on March 4, 2010 at the Cary Magazine Elegant Weddings Gala at the Umstead Hotel & Spa, the gala’s grand sponsor.

Only the best wedding vendors will be on hand to showcase ways they can make any wedding day sparkle with their impeccable style and expertise.

Guests will enjoy cocktails and samplings of the Umstead’s top chef creations along with a full assortment of wedding cake and pastry options. As brides peruse the ballroom and salon area, they can visualize ideas for their wedding day and even try on bridal couture. Every consideration from stationery to flowers, from music to photography and beyond will be available, helping brides to create the wedding of their dreams.

New this year will be an outdoor terrace offering brides more area to explore and connect with vendors in an intimate setting. The terrace will also offer spectacular views of the Umstead’s outdoor courtyard, which will be decorated in full bridal fanfare to showcase how it can accommodate an outdoor garden wedding.

Presenting sponsor Tre Bella will also be offering an exclusive designer bridal couture trunk show to brides looking for their fairy-tale wedding gown.
