Brides, Bubbles, and Bliss

Founder Cara Nava shares her inspiration behind the modern bridal event



After the excitement of the engagement dies down, many new brides find themselves confused on what to do next. That’s where Cara and Scott Nava want to help. Three years ago, the husband-and-wife duo (who also happen to be fantastic wedding photographers) founded Brides, Bubbles, and Bliss, a Chicago-based wedding fair for the modern bride.

“Our vision was to create and produce an event that caters to the couple who want to go beyond the traditional,” she says. Their beyond-traditional offerings include tastings by premier caterers, dazzling drinks, live entertainment, and a runway show where brides can see couture gowns and accessories up close. Although it’s been a big undertaking, Nava says they’ve enjoyed every moment.
“Hosting and producing BBB has been such a fulfilling experience on so many levels. We’ve learned so much information about the industry and wanted to share that information with our fans on a regular basis.” That regular basis will be in the form of BBB TV, where viewers will be able to tune in year-round for wedding inspiration via the BBB website. Blissful, indeed!
