Behind The Scenes At The Big Top

Close your eyes for a second. Imagine the salty smell of popcorn and sweet aroma of cotton candy, the sparkle of glitter and whimsy of balloons, and the trumpeting of elephants and rumbling roar of lions.

You hear the call of the ringmaster, booming out over the roaring crowd in his melodic cantor, “Laaaaaadies and gentlemen, brides and grooms, welcome to the grrrrrreatest show on earth! A spectacular spectacle! The most giving of galas! The show of all shows! Step right up, and see the one, the only, the most fantastic gathering of clever coordinators, beguiling beat-makers, fantastic florists, delectable deserts, skillful shutterbugs, and dashing dressmakers all under one roof!”

When you open your eyes, this is what you see. A vintage circus! Welcome to the 5th annual bridal gala and charity auction of Get Hitched Give Hope!

To celebrate our 5th year, our bridal show will be set inside a big top tent filled with feats from nostalgic years past.
