Brides-to-be will have the chance to explore all things bridal in one of the most elegant venues in downtown Cleveland during the fourth annual Jstyle Weddings event Feb. 15 at Metropolitan at The 9.

More than 40 Cleveland-area exhibitors will showcase the latest trends in bridal gowns, hair and makeup, entertainment, floral design, lighting, photography, videography, event design and cakes at the event. Guests will enjoy complimentary champagne and dessert, exclusive discounts and entry into giveaways.

“Participants will be pampered while planning their memorable day in the most elegant and exclusive setting in Cleveland,” said Kelly Millet, the events and marketing manager for the Cleveland Jewish News.

Catan Fashions in Strongsville will display dozens of wedding gowns at the event. New York-based wedding dress designer James Clifford will be in attendance to meet with brides and answer any questions about picking the perfect dress.

“We are America’s largest bridal salon. If you’re planning an event it is truly worth the trip to our store. We’re a bridal destination,” said Brenda Kucinski, events director for Catan Fashions.

Socially Artistic Events, which was started by Catan Fashions’ owner Patrice Catan in 2011, will provide information on its services, which range from event planning to table design to floral arrangements.

Anna-Jeannine Herman and her husband Justin, who co-own the Akron-based Something New Entertainment, will emcee the four-hour event. Something New Entertainment is a couture entertainment boutique that specializes in master of ceremonies services.

“We create exceptional events for exceptional clients,” Herman said “We’re always looking to create events that are really different because our clients are so different from the ones we’ve had before them. We want them to have a bespoken tailored experience for their event.”

The event is presented by Catan Fashions and Socially Artistic Events and supported by Something New Entertainment, Metropolitan at The 9, Heinen’s Catering and L’Nique Linens.

The 2015 issue of Jstyle Weddings, which is published by the Cleveland Jewish Publication Company, will be
released Feb. 13.
