FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
An EXCITING Announcement About A NEW Development
Regarding Jacksonville’s Bridal Fantasy Events!
Husband and wife team, Greg and Gabriele Sessions, have been the producers and promoters of the Jacksonville Bridal Fantasy since it’s inception in 2001!
The professional couple began their careers in 1993 publishing a series of fine, four-color, glossy, wedding magazines serving multiple cities around the state. This effort included a Jacksonville edition first published in 1996. Out of these magazines came several bridal shows in each of the markets.
Through the earlier publications Greg and Gabriele were involved in assisting with and producing many leading bridal shows throughout the state of Florida going back to the early-to-mid 1990’s. Greg also started and served on the board of several wedding-networking associations during these times as well.
By late 2010 Greg and Gabriele were no longer publishing print magazines. However, their annual Bridal Fantasy events in Jacksonville had grown into the largest and most comprehensive wedding shows in Northeast Florida. These events arguably remain THE bridal expo to attend in the local community today.
In their never ending pursuit of excellence this entrepreneurial couple will be the first to point out there’s always room for growth. However, they are very proud of the way their bridal events are received by both brides and businesses alike.
The Bridal Fantasy wedding expos at the Sawgrass Marriott are sophisticated and savvy. These shows enjoy a long-standing tradition of hosting some of the finest and most sought-after wedding professionals around in addition to offering local brides the most extensive contemporary bridal fashion runway revue in Northeast Florida – and possibly even in the state of Florida.
• OVER 125 of Jacksonville’s finest wedding professionals
• RUNWAY fashion shows; over 35 models; multiple local designers
• VIP & ULTRA-VIP services available for the brides
• SANDALS honeymoons plus other valuable giveaways
• CASINO lounge where winners choose the door prizes they want
• And much, much more!
“The more elaborate the bridal show the more moving parts there are” Greg suggests before concluding “and these kind of events do not happen with minimal effort or by themselves.”
Greg is quick to acknowledge the Jacksonville Bridal Fantasy’s success is due in large part to the support of the business community, key sponsors, and committed show personnel. The Bridal Fantasy events have been the superior show in Northeast Florida for well over a decade by pursuing “an aggressive win-win strategy” with everyone involved.
Greg and Gabriele are duly grateful for the show’s growth and accomplishments over the years. They are humbled by the many current sponsors and paying clientele who have been with them since day one.
Although largely anecdotal, this business couple has noted a fairly recent and subtle change in the collective perception of bridal shows in Jacksonville overall. By appearance this has occurred during a multi-year period where, compared to years past, a larger number of major bridal shows have been operating annually in the marketplace.
Yet, at the same time Greg and Gabriele feel it is now time to provide consumers an added choice in Jacksonville as it relates to placing their style of an event in the late spring and early summer months of the calendar year.
Greg and Gabriele appreciate the Sawgrass Marriott very much along with their Marriott representatives – Robin, Keely, and the others. They both note, “A very good thing has been established at the Sawgrass Marriott property.” Greg and Gabriele plan to stay the course at the Ponte Vedra location and will continue to develop the Bridal Fantasy brand making those shows the very best they can be!
Greg and Gabriele have also pursued an opportunity to produce one of their style shows during late spring and early summer and eagerly announce the following: “We’re more than excited to present our next show on Sunday, May 31, 2015 at The Renaissance Resort inside World Golf Village! It will be a new event, with a new name and brand, similar high-end production, with over 20 years of experience to put behind it!”
Here are the bridal shows for the remainder of the year produced exclusively by MyWeddingStyles, Inc.:

A huge thank-you and shout-out goes to the professionals at The Renaissance Resort for the recent time spent exploring this opportunity. Greg and Gabriele are very excited and both look forward to developing a long-term and healthy business relationship with the professionals at The Renaissance Resort.
This new development has been shared with a few individuals prior to making the formal announcement and nothing less than enthusiastic anticipation for the proposed plans has been received.
Greg wants it known to all, “In regard to all of our events, Gabriele and I seek to keep raising the bar in the greater Jacksonville area and will continue to optimize the value of these shows for our guests and return-on-investment for our clientele!”
Expect good things from the new Renaissance Resort event!
The office at MyWeddingStyles, Inc. looks forward to further serving the needs of local wedding businesses and brides by bringing another innovative and quality product to the marketplace.
Please contact our office immediately if you’re interested in participating in the upcoming May show at the Renaissance Resort. Late spring and early summer shows tend to be smaller in scope and size compared to other annual bridal shows. The lesser number of booths, and smaller price point, will ensure these spaces go quickly.
