I’m so excited to share and announce that I will be a speaker at this wonderful event!  I’m thrilled beyond belief that I will be there alongside my peers in the wedding industry.  What amazing group to be with and learn from.  Brides-to-be will learn a wealth of information to help them plan for their own special day!

“Engaged 101 will help brides, bridesmaids and moms – even grooms! – begin to understand the important basics of planning a wedding,” said Nicole Kaney, founder and owner of NK Weddings which offers full-service and day-of-wedding coordination. “While navigating the planning process may seem overwhelming at first to engaged couples, our teams and close partners help ensure the process is fun and stress-free.” NK Weddings will provide planning tips throughout the evening at Engaged 101. The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota will host the special educational workshop as their full-service spa shares makeup tips and in-house pastry chef offers a very special cake tasting.

Additional wedding vendors participating in Engaged 101 include Write-On Sarasota, Botanica International Design Studio, Camilyn Beth and Linens by the Sea.

Tickets to Engaged 101 are $25 per person or $40 for a “girlfriends package” of two tickets. All brides-to-be and their weddings teams are invited to make reservations by calling 941.309.2072. Advanced reservations are required and space is limited.

It will be held at The Ritz Carlton Sarasota on Thursday, April 9 at 5pm.

I had the pleasure of documenting one of this years most anticipated event in Sarasota…. The Designing Daughters Southern Charm Event at Selby Garden.  A little bit of rain wasn’t going to stop the ladies and gentelmen of Sarasota from having a good time while raising money for a good cause.

The theme this year was Southern Charm!  The food, outfits of guests and the fashion show by local designers and boutiques in town showcased their best southern inspired clothing.

I loved that my dear friend Cami showcased her designs along with my friend and client Diana Kelly Buchanan’s DEK shoes.  The pairing was perfection!  Stylish boutiques in town… Influence and Fresh presented their best southern inspired outfits modeled on hay bale platforms.

And once again the lovely Victoria Warren of Victoria Blooms out did herself with her floral arrangements.  Everything was beautiful!

To the ladies of the Designing Daughters…thank you so much for having me!  It was an honor to be there!  I’m looking forward to next year!

I’m seriously lucky to be surrounded by the most talented, driven and smart women in the wedding industry here in Sarasota.  I absolutely love that I get to call them friends as well.  Both Eri Vincent & Kelly Anne McGraw are hands down the most talented women who specialize in Wedding Hair & Make-up.  They are both also very accomplished make-up artists for print, tv, movie… the list goes on.  Eri was even featured in Total Divas this summer doing what she does best.  So freaking cool!!

I was invited to join them both during their very first bridal show in St. Petersburg earlier this month to capture a few behind the scene images and take their models out for a quick fun shoot.  We all had so much fun and their show was a huge success!!!

Thank you Eri & Kelly for inviting me to tag along… it was so much.  I always love spending time with you both.  Special thanks to the models as well… Emily, Lauren & Brittny.  Gorgeous work and beautiful models.
