The Workshop!

Oh dear, I've been a bad girl! But I have a good excuse for my absentee posts - things have been straight out nutty here. Lots of weddings, beautiful brides, fun locations, and LOTS of flowers which I will get to eventually. So many studio shots to share and I'm not sure I will ever be as awesome at blogging them as I would like to be.

On another note...we did our little workshop in Santa Barbara this spring and it was soooo FUN. It turned out to be a relaxed, one-on-one intensive with my gal Grace from Vale of Enna in Chicago. All I can say is...she makes me smile! A talented designer and a wonderful person. I felt so lucky to have 2 days designing with her and making a new flower friend.

We had secured this fantastic little Hobbit House in the sand, picked some amazing flowers, played and designed and chatted for hours just inches from the water's edge. Enjoyed good food, good company, great wine etc.
On day two a few people arrived who I am lucky to call my friends....

Joel Serrato of Joel Serrato Films, and Jose Villa came to capture our little elopement creations. Rebecca Stone of Duet-Weddings was there too to add all her infinite design wisdom and help me keep my sanity. Gorgeous Melanie and her beau Chris came to model.
My husband and our little Alice rounded out the group for a very fun and magical time.

See more of this little elopement session, including Joels sweet film, on Style Me Pretty and Once Wed.

New Workshop Dates for September coming soon!
Hope to see some of you there.
