What a super fun and gorgeous event to have taken part in! Every now and then I am offered the opportunity to participate in a panel or speaking engagement along side my other wedding planning friends and event professionals. Sometimes we are in classrooms, other times we are at trade shows, but for The Art of Wedding Planning - a night designed, conceived, and produced by Michael and Brooke Coxen of Paper & Home - we were at West Elm! Yes, the West Elm with all of the fabulous furniture, amazing candles, and super chic accessories that have become quite the obsession for most of us.
The night was open to brides, grooms, bridal parties, and locals at every level of the wedding industry. I was proud to sit besides so many other ladies that I adore and admire: Angelica from Green Orchid Events, Angela from Simply Weddings, and Rissa from Scheme Events. But more so than anything, it was great to spend the day night weddings...Sharing ideas about how to personalize the day, ways to make a monochromatic design more interesting, how to design and lay out a room, and the best way to design a tablescape.
Thank you to Paper & Home for including me in the day, and to AltF and Memory Lane for capturing it so beautifully. You guys have to see some of these. I hope you adore them and are inspired to come out for the next Art of Wedding Planning event (announcement coming soon on social media) where we will be delving deeper into design, and partnering with some exciting organizations!
