jbm at the bold italic love/make wedding expo

jbm weddings was thrilled to be a vendor at the bold italic’s well-attended love/make wedding expo. we were represented by our lovely and talented associate photographer erin prado. thanks, erin!

this event was our first appearance on the west coast as a business. we were founded in brooklyn, ny and have since expanded to our future home in san francisco. needless to say, it was a very exciting day for us.

after getting a glowing report from erin, we learned that the event was a huge success all-around. in fact, it was so well-attended that we were cleaned out of business cards and information packets after only two hours. i guess that’s a good problem to have, right?

in erin’s own words, there lots of “oos and awwws” as people strolled by, stopped to talk and watched the slideshow of our favorite work. there were so many incredibly talented and creative vendors at the event and were honored to be amongst them. not to mention, the tables looked amazing!

overall, jbm weddings was very well-received and we couldn’t happier.

if you were there (or you weren’t) and would like to see how it went, take a look through erin’s images below. enjoy!

erin was enthusiastic and eager to man the jbm table. we can’t thank her enough for helping us make this transition.


AND it looked super cute, too 🙂


old cameras and crystals. what else do you need?


nopalito killed it. who doesn’t love organic and mexican food?



oakland bakes enticed love/make goers with sweets and treats. seems like cheating!

live music is always good.


ash and i are obsessed with tipis. we want one to be a permanent fixture in our backyard someday. therefore, shelter co is awesome.

hunt & gather rentals had one of our favorite displays. it was so beautifully curated! in fact, they had the same vintage camera that we did. all great minds….


i want ALL of this stuff.


everybody needs at least one sharp suit.


that’s why artful gentleman was there to represent!


i really respect the green business practices of locally grown weddings
