Aug. 5, 2009 - PRLog -- COLUMBUS, OHIO – The September/October 2009 issue of BRIDES Magazine, the World's No. 1 Bridal Magazine,  is hitting the newsstands now and features designs by local floral shop owner and designer, Trace Kingham, owner of FRESH Flowers & Events and President/CEO of Trace Ltd. Event Design Specialists located in Grandview Heights, Ohio. In April 2009, Kingham was invited to come to New York by Wedding Style Director, Maria McBride, for a designer’s session and photo shoot.  Seven designers were invited to create interesting and functional designs based on a solid color palate chosen by McBride for the Fall issue. The top designs were selected for inclusion in the September/October 2009 issue of BRIDES Magazine.

“Shopping in New York’s flower district and being on the design set was a dream come true for me,” Kingham says. “It felt like walking into a reality show where your creative talents and vision were challenged, pushed beyond your norm and held up against the wedding industry’s elite just for a chance to be featured.” Kingham had seven designs selected for the ‘white and white/brown flowers’ section (pages 432-435). “It’s so exciting to see a Columbus designer in such a prominent, national publication. It showcases our city’s creative talent and ability stands right in line with East and West Coast designers,” says Xenia Palus, membership director of Experience Columbus.
