True Colors Events Sells Urban Unveiled in Partnership with Seattle Bride
Travis and I are always trying to think of way to make Urban Unveiled, the wedding show for those with style, sophistication, and a passion for the unique, even better. We have been a part of the show since its inception, and as its owners, we have had the most amazing time coming up with new and creative ways to enhance Urban Unveiled and bring new and exciting things to the Seattle wedding market. We have had themes such as Hollywood After Party, South Beach Chic, Woodland Glamour, and most recently, Diamond. What started out as an idea has grown into the leading boutique wedding event in the Pacific Northwest. Here are some of our favorite pictures from shows past.

Shortly after the October event Seattle Bride approached us about acquiring Urban Unveiled. We have always looked out for the best interest of the show and all of the vendors. Seattle Bride has been the media sponsor of Urban Unveiled since the beginning, and we saw this as a perfect fit. We will remain involved in the creative process of planning & designing Urban Unveiled, as well as at the show itself. Collectively Travis, myself, and our partners at Seattle Bride do not anticipate any significant changes to the quality and content of Urban Unveiled, and we have already begun discussing the 2012 event. We see this partnership as an incredible opportunity to bring even more attention (and more couples!) to Urban Unveiled.
The attached Press Release came out recently, and we wanted to share it with our friends. We are very excited about this next evolution for Urban Unveiled.
