This past April, I had the opportunity and pleasure to participate in the first Design Sanctuary Workshop hosted by Susan Davis of Fresh Designs Florist and Shannon Wellington of Shannon Wellington Weddings and Events at the beautiful property of Farm and Garden Flowers in Coatesville, PA. The workshop took place over two full days of designing, connecting, laughing and engaging with the loveliest folks in the wedding industry in and around Philadelphia. Floral designers, flower farmers, wedding photographers, makeup artists and vendors for rentals and dresses collaborated to create beautiful styled shoots purely for pleasure and as a way to form relationships with peers in the industry. It was heaven and really the best way to kick-off the start of wedding season. I'm so honored I was invited to attend because I met some truly incredible, hardworking and talented women that I can now also call friends.
