Bloom: An Event for New and Expecting Moms | Recap

Last month we presented Bloom, a national event designed for women who are currently expecting, adopting, fostering or who have become a mother in the past year. We love this event as it helps bring a community of new mamas together- all while treating them, pampering them, and helping connect them with resources! A huge thanks to Summit Credit Union and UnityPoint Health – Meriter for sponsoring this event!

We hosted Bloom at the absolutely gorgeous Noah’s Event Venue, located on American Family Drive.

Noah’s is part of a national brand that has 40 venues across the country, and had hosted over 10,000 events. These venues are so well-appointed for weddings, corporate events, meetings, and (in this case) an event for a bunch of new mamas! Chandeliers, AV equipment, Decor, Linens- it was all there!

Our guests and sponsors absolutely loved the beautiful space!

We are so excited to share candid photos of Bloom from Caroline Marie Photography! She is wonderful to work with and so talented!
