Big Rock Little Rooster, Camelot Cellars host bridal fashion show
Big Rock Little Rooster and Camelot Cellars Urban Boutique Winery have joined forces to put on a Bridal Couture Affair on Jan. 17 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Camelot Cellars, at 958 N. High St. in the Short North.
The fashion show will feature 15 to 18 high-end wedding gowns by Anne Bowen, Badgley Mischka, Vera Wang, and Monique Lhuillier.
“We will be showing the more artistic and funky gowns by these designers− a lot of color and the non-traditional wedding gown,” said Kristin Cooke, manager at Big Rock Little Rooster. “Anne Bowen can be described as spirited, sexy, and modern. Badgley Mischka gowns are classic with a punch of glamour. Vera Wang is timeless, sophisticated, and innovative. Monique Lhuillier is classic and romantic.”
Jewelry by Ranjana Khan, accessories by Toni Federici, and flowers by Rose Bredl will finish off the models’ looks. Mukha Custom Cosmetics & Medi-Spa will do the models’ makeup and they will be styled by Brian Hawkins Styling.
“We had a fashion event called Camelot Couture, which received much success, and it was ‘out of the box’ from the typical fashion show here in Columbus,” said Janine Aquino, owner of Camelot Cellars. “I felt that since wedding season starts in January, why not feature one of a kind couture gowns. Again, a show that is not typical to Columbus.”
Tickets for the show are $50 per individual and $90 per couple. Attendees will receive free valet parking, a flight of wine (that will include white, rosé and red wines), and hors d’oeuvres by Laura’s Catering. Shannon Williams Photography will photograph the show.
Proceeds from the show will benefit Wish Upon a Wedding, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides weddings and vow renewals to couples facing terminal illness and serious life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation.
“I became aware of it from another event planner in Columbus, Adrianne Elizabeth,” Aquino said. “Looking at the organization, it looked like one that really, truly helped people who really wanted to have some sort of marriage ceremony, but simply couldn’t due to circumstances beyond their control. There’s a lot of need in the Columbus area for these people and this organization is the solution.”
The show’s coordinators are hoping to raise at least $2,500.
