"Thank you for your support of the Wedding Crasher's Tour. With three years under our belt the tour has been a great creative outlet for vendors and participants. We have enjoyed bringing to the community this highly innovative and dynamic approach to wedding planning as it allows vendors to engage with couples in more personal and meaningful ways. We want to see this type of energy and collaboration grow in future years as well as in other wedding markets that have already expressed interest in our Tour. To see this concept successful on a more regional or national level, we have identified ways of further improving the Tour and will be taking 2018 off to better streamline this event for future RVA tours and beyond."
Amanda Robinson and Jessica Maida are the founders of The Wedding Crashers Tour and continue to enjoy their respective passions in cake design and wedding photography. As entrepreneurs they previously collaborated on weddings, styled shoots and looked for opportunities to further the creative collaboration within the industry and with each other. This desire would later be expanded on to create the Wedding Crashers Tour - an opportunity for engaged couples and local wedding vendors to network in a more candid and creative environment.
"What motivates us as a wedding vendors is having a creative outlet to expand our crafts and creating personalized experiences for our clients. And for us it’s not just about our own unique experiences, but the collaborations with fellow vendors outside of weddings. Styled shoots are ideal for this and present the chance to elevate our crafts together however we wanted to see an event that was not only creative and collaborative but one that allowed us to also reach our local engaged couples on a personal level."
