1.17.14 NYE at Brick & Laurel

This year to celebrate New Years and our first anniversary we threw a huge party at our warehouse, Brick and Laurel. We use this space for large production, workshops and small events. Basically my goal was to re-create our wedding and to revere my two favorite things dancing and gold.

Throughout the night we had around 80 people come and celebrate my favorite holiday. I really love everything about New Years. Its such a great time to celebrate with your loved ones and to look forward to new things to come! Plus lets face it...it really makes for an awesome excuse to have a dance party and thats reason enough for me.

For the decorations I made what seemed like miles of triangle garlands to hang from the rafters in our warehouse. We set up a full bar in one of the spare offices and was (big surprise) a favorite place to hang out for our guests.

Courtney from Eden Day photography manned the photo booth and captured the essence of our celebration so beautifully! Check out how we brought in the new year with these beautiful pictures below!

12.09.13 Mayacamas Workshop

Last April I had the pleasure of attending a floral workshop with the incredible Kate Holt of Flowerwild in Calistoga, CA. Along with Kate, I met some really incredible ladies in the floral industry. We spent a few days together learning about the field we love and had the extreme pleasure in having Jose Villa photography our bridal bouquets that we made on the last day.

Bridal bouquets are my absolute favorite item to make so I was ecstatic with this whole experience. We each made our own creation and all of the outcomes were really beautiful. To have the pictures taken by the amazing Jose Villa was just the cherry on top. He has such a humility about him that was so refreshing for someone of his caliber. I absolutely loved every minute of our shoot and I was completely blown away with the beauty of these images. The softness and light that he captures is truly stunning. 

I love learning and growing in my skill. To be able share our professional experience openly with so many women that I look up to and respect was so valuable to me. The whole experience was a dream and I feel very fortunate to have been a part of it.
