April 19, 2017

On Saturday, April 15th, Christina Currie Events (CCE) hosted their 6th "Grace Meets Glamour" bridal show at Barrington’s White House, 145 W. Main St., Barrington.


The one-of-a-kind boutique bridal affair introduced brides-to-be and guests to wedding vendors who provide exceptional products and services for special events. The two-hour event was a source of inspiration and unity between grace and glamour.

At the event, guests engaged in intimate conversations with top-notch vendors; a privilege unique to CCE’s Grace Meets Glamour show. Brides-to-be were offered personalized guidance, insider tips and creative concepts from each industry expert to help orchestrate details for their big day.

Specialized vendors included:

  • bridal fashion designer

  • musicians

  • wedding cake designers

  • stationery artists

  • beauty consultants

  • chefs

  • photographers

  • videographers

  • wedding officiants

For added fun, guests enjoyed interactive activities; a photo booth, ice sculpting demonstrations and a chance to customize their own makeup.

Guests sampled delicious hors d’oeuvres, trendy signature drinks and decadent wedding cakes while being serenaded to live jazz music. En vogue models were on display to inspire ideas for wedding fashions, hair, and makeup. All proceeds benefited Wish Upon a Wedding, a non-profit organization created to help couples coping with terminal illness.

Personalized tours of the glamorous Barrington’s White House were given during the event. Barrington’s White House is a historical and cornerstone mansion on Main Street in the heart of downtown Barrington.

As one of the founding members of the Wish Upon a Wedding Chicago chapter, Christina Currie orchestrated the first military wedding to benefit from the cause in 2014. The war veteran, a Barrington resident, and his fiancé’s dream came true from the funding of the organization. Grace Meets Glamour has been a proud supporter of the foundation that has helped over 100 couples say “I DO” since 2010.

By the end of the show, Christina helped brides-to-be answer large decision-making questions such as; choosing an event theme, creating the right mood, floral types, entertainment, photography, etc. As a thank you for spending the afternoon at the bridal show, each bride went home with a special swag bag filled with unique gifts from our creative partners.
