Like many little girls, Rachel Ballard dreamt about meeting her Prince Charming, and knew Ryan was the one. On Oct. 8th all of her dreams came true. Not only did her Prince propose, he surprised her with a confirmed wedding date at The Bell Tower on 34th; he knew it was her venue of choice. She’ll be engaged for exactly one year when she walks down the aisle. She’s
got a lot to smile about. She has just been selected as the Bridal Extravaganza Show’s new Billboard Bride. Look for her smiling face on billboards citywide this summer.

Rachel’s picture will be featured on magazine covers, posters and over fifty billboards throughout the Houston area. Vendors of the Bridal Extravaganza Show worked together to make this natural beauty look her best.
The process started at Ventura’s Bridal with dress selection. “The goal was to find a gown that would really make a statement and, and this Enzoni strapless showstopper does just that,” says Taska Ventura. A perfectly placed veil completes the ensemble.
Houston’s hot, humid climate can be a bit hard on a girl’s makeup during long photo shoots, and weddings. Enter Hilda Kershman and her special talent of manually airbrushing on makeup. She created perfect balances of shades and colors that beat the Houston elements and kept Rachel looking great the entire shoot.
LZ Floral provided the flowers. Lara Zolton created three bouquets, ensuring one would
be a perfect fit for the Billboard Bride. “My approach is to create an individual bouquet for each bride,” she says.
