Team Zello Returns

Kim Zello and husband/chef Robert Zello of Stone Soup Catering are returning for their second appearance at the Not-So-Big Wedding Boutique & Challenge. Last year, they wowed both the judges and the brides-to-be with their awesome crab dip and creative money-saving ideas. (View their wedding tab from last year.) What will they bring to the table this year? Stay tuned.

Why Participate?

There are a lot of bridal expos out there. Why participate (or attend) the Not-So-Big Wedding?? I'll let some of last year's vendors and attendees speak to this point:

First up, Ana, bride & attendee, had this to say:

I attended your not so big wedding last November by myself. I loved it because there were just enough vendors there to pick from and not feel overwhelmed and bombarded by everyone all at once.

I ended up using several vendors from your event: Kim and her company [Stone Soup Catering], Adam Feit as our DJ, and Cara Fleck as our harpist at the church.
Needless to say, I definitely benefitted from your event. I attended 3-4 bridal events and of all of them, yours was the most useful.

Next up, Kim Zello of Stone Soup Catering.

The Not-So-Big Wedding Boutique is truly a one-stop-shop for today's quality-minded and value-oriented wedding couples!
From Leslie Grimes of Corcoran Catering:
From a catering perspective, having teams and a grand prize brought a challenge to the vendor element by pushing us to our highest level, again for the bride.

It was fun personally for me by challenging our team to be our best, we won 1st prize!

And Cindy Jacobs of Cinful Cuisine:
Don't miss out on this fabulous new Bridal Show! You will have so much fun ~ meet exciting new clients and most of all ... make lasting connections with other vendors!
