Ignite & Gather | Workshop & Styled Shoot

Ignite & Gather.

What an absolute delight this weekend was! Getting to spend my Saturday with other wedding professionals talkin’ shop and talking pretty pictures of really pretty things was definitely my kind of off-season Saturday! We bonded over a love of exclamation points (emailing without them tailing every sentence is a big struggle) and the ups and downs of creative businesses. I loved seeing all the smiles and I know we all came out of the day with a passel of new friends.

The building we were in was stunning, like literal house dreams, and was heated with a giant wood stove. So of course I was in love immediately. Old schoolhouse vibes plus allll the pretty things enveloped in Ali’s amazing floral joy. I was in Heaven. Giant gorgeous windows letting cloudy winter daylight gently spill into the room, schoolhouse lights hanging from the ceiling. All of it. I could have lived in that room for the rest of my days.

Becky did such an amazing job of planning the whole day, but the shining glory in my pretty-loving heart was the styled shoot portion of the workshop. Every detail Becky and her team pulled together was so perfect for the day, I know I can speak for us all when I say we didn’t want to stop photographing every little moment and detail.

What a wonderful, wonderful day.
