...Bay Bella...

... Woods&Company recently had the honor of being a part of Bay Bella publishing's Bridal Best of the Bay competition. 

... Bay Bella is a local Bay Area publishing company that puts out the bridal publications Bride 9 and Mocha Bride. This year, they put on a competition called the "Bridal Best of the Bay", featuring invitation, hair, make-up, event, cake, and favor vendors from the 9 counties in the Bay Area.

... The first part of the competition was on the county level. Nine vendors from each category competed to earn a spot in the final "all county" competition, where the vendor represented their county amongst the eight other counties in the Bay Area.

... Woods&Company was asked to be a part of the competition representing the favor vendors. Woods&Company competed with eight other favor vendors in San Francisco county to be represented at the final "all county" competition.

... Excitingly, Woods&Company won the county level! We were chosen as the favor vendor from San Francisco county to go to the "all county" competition.

... So, on November 18th, Woods&Company represented San Francisco county at Bay Bella's Gala Awards Event that took place at the Regency here in San Francisco. It was a great time with some very talented Bay Area wedding vendors, as well as some celebrities of the wedding industry presenting the awards. While Woods&Company was not awarded the Best of the Bay, it was an honor to be selected and to win the Best of San Francisco County award. 

... As a county winner, Woods&Company will have a feature in the winter issues of both Bride 9 and Mocha Bride.

... And here are some photos of our table at the competition. I am hoping to have some more professional photos to display in the future.

...The Knot Northern California...

... Woods&Company is delighted to have been mentioned in the Fall/Winter issue of The Knot Northern California.

... See page 30 for our mention and lots of other great wedding planning suggestions thanks to contributions by local wedding planners Alison Hotchkiss, Angela Nelson (Lulu Events), and Amy Nichols.

... Thanks for the "shout out" Amy! Much appreciated!

...and she WAS a happy camper!

... over the summer, I posted a project that I completed for a former camper of mine who was getting married. I posted a few pictures of the samples that I did for her, and that I had on hand. However, what I was really hoping for was that she would send me some of the pictures from her actual wedding.

... and so she did! She just got her proofs back from her photographer, and forwarded them along to me!  As you remember, I did her escort cards, table names, menus, favors, and tags for her welcome bags. So check them out!

I made tags for their Welcome Bags (bag tags, tags for the snacks and water, list of weekend events, and a list of  the things to do in the area)
