Behind the scenes of The Atlantic Wedding Showcase

I've had the pleasure of getting to know Kimberley Boucher over the last few months and she is such a lovely person. We immediately connected over lattes about our passion for the wedding industry and helping brides and grooms plan the wedding of their dreams. Our vision and values are very similar, so it was a no-brainer that we would partner up to promote the Atlantic Wedding Showcase.  

Here's a few words from Kimberley:

In 2014, I purchased Atlantic Wedding Showcase from its 25-year owner. While searching for a unique business that was centered around people, fun, creativity and had a stellar reputation, I stumbled upon AWS. Weddings? Hmm ... being a mother of three, yoga/meditation instructor and super organized (some would say with a touch of OCD), I knew this was exactly what I was searching for. After all, who doesn't love weddings?!

I knew this venture was something I could take pride in and show my dedication in life to "real moments" and something "different." Something I could really use to portray my belief that the strong and thoughtful modern women and men of this world secretly want to break the "cookie cutter" mold and focus on the human and emotional part of their special day.   

In the last four years, I have worked diligently in trying to make sure the Atlantic Wedding Showcase translates into an approachable, unique, and creative wedding resource (for brides, grooms, and wedding professionals alike). Everything is handpicked in the hopes that every style and philosophy defines the "there is no right way to throw a wedding" approach. I have selected those businesses with stellar reputations, exemplary service and fun and energetic partners that are committed to layering weddings with the out of the ordinary feel, and yes stay super personal. Because for me, this business is very personal.

After four years and eight successful events, there is one thing I know for sure: The very foundation of hosting this kind of event is directly related to one's belief in real beauty, kind people and commitment to inspiration. And ... oh yes ... truly believing in "Ever After."
