Please join us in celebrating this charitable organization and help make it a roaring success! Your contribution will help create a dynamic experience for all participants, and will truly help to both raise needed funds for YWCA, as well as encourage local brides to explore Church Street Bridal, and view their shop as the quality boutique experience they deserve, while also helping support a great cause in our own community.
Thank you so much for your interest in being part of this YWCA of Central Virginia awareness event! We're so excited to partner with all of you in this first-ever Bridal Showcase featuring gowns from Church Street Bridal. It is our goal to spread awareness of the work YWCA is doing in our community, and share the excellent value and quality gowns available at their bridal boutique, as they receive numerous gowns donated by leading designers.
YWCA of Central Virginia, established in 1912, lives its mission to eliminate racism and empower women in Central Virginia. YWCA works to promote the health and safety of women and girls through its two flagship victim services programs: Domestic Violence Prevention Program (DVPP) and the Sexual Assault Response Program (SARP). Further, YWCA of Central Virginia has worked to provide safe and secure housing for women since 1918 with a program that continues to this day with its third flagship program – Town Center Women’s Residential Housing Program. The organization has set the leadership example by being the premier agency in attaining a common community vision of peace, justice, freedom, dignity, and camaraderie for all people through the women, girls, and families they serve. For more information about YWCA of Central Virginia, please visit our website: www.ywcacva.org. YWCA of Central Virginia is a partner agency of United Way of Central Virginia.
On Showcase day, launch your amazing creations with the world, and don't forget to blast it on social media! We'll be promoting the event as well, but every voice helps!
Once teams are formed, and an inspiration board has been set for your group, you will be sent a team portal for communicating with your team mates and creative brainstorming!
Based on your responses, and on our various team needs, you will be placed into a creative team for a designated venue location! Your preferences will be given priority, if possible.
Submitting the form on this page will enter your details into our pool of vendor and participant applications! It is our goal to find a spot for each participant, if at all possible!
The questionnaire below will help us create different teams for editorial set ups. Feel free to be as descriptive as necessary, as this will help us create the perfect pairing of vendors for each editorial display! It is our goal not only highlight CSB and their gowns, but to also showcase the amazing vendors that make up our wedding community. We would love to allow each vendor to explore their personal creative interests during this event! (2020 was hard for everyone... let's have some fun now!)
As if our name wasn't obvious enough, let's just say it again, shall we? We love romance. We adore love stories. There's nothing more important on your wedding day than the fact that you are marrying your best friend. Our work will capture the purity and beauty of your love in photography and videography that truly expresses and tells your personal story, in the way that you truly desire.
What is life without a flair of the dramatic and elegant? This is your moment, your big day. You deserve to feel like royalty and have professional imagery that captures who you are in a glorious manner. Whenever possible, we always like to throw some epic photography into your wedding day, creating a truly unique experience that you will look back on for years to come. But only in the way that fits your vision.
The last thing you want is to look back on your wedding photos 20 years from now and wonder, "what were we thinking?" The Amative brand goes beyond trends and fads, and gives you truly timeless imagery that you will cherish for decades. We incorporate a broad variety of pose guidance, photo/video techniques, and client communication to produce genuine & authentic results. We also keep footage indefinitely. If you ever want a fresh edit, we can help.
