Bloom Workshop Recap

Well, friends! Today is going to be a picture-heavy post, but I think you'll be alright with that :) 

Ashley and I are finally sharing our photos from Bloom Workshop we hosted a couple of weeks ago. The day was just so much fun. We met some of the nicest, most creative gals out there, who are passionate about taking their blog, business, photography and design skills to the next level. What joy it brought to both of our hearts to have the honor of sharing our knowledge with them for the day. 

The gorgeous Hydrangea Blu Barn was THE perfect location for our workshop. With plenty of space, charm and beautiful touches, it was nothing short of an amazing backdrop for the day. PSSST…brides in West Michigan, this is such a lovely venue for your wedding! I mean, that chandelier. Yes, please!

We wanted the space to feel bright, open, feminine and sort of like a quaint party for the ladies. In order to spice up the normal barn look, I got these amazing ghost chairs from The Rental Company for the wood king tables, which are property of Hydrangea Blu. Aren't they amazing? I love the juxtaposition that the ghost chairs, barn, and wood tables create. Each guest got a gold folder, notebook with their name beautifully written across it, and a sweet baby succulent

Below are some pictures from Ashley Slater Photography (my partner in crime!)

We adored our signage by Amber and Angela from Add{Vintage} All the girls could look at the front of the room and see the workshop hashtag. It was perfect!

All the guests went home with some pretty awesome swag bags. Not only was the actual bag from Dream State cute, but so was everything in it! 

Our coffee bar was going all day, because unfortunately the weather threw us a curve ball and it was a blustery, cold day! The remedy? Our adorable Shine Bright mugs from Ashley & Malone. Each guest took one home with them to enjoy many more cups of jo :)

After the morning teaching portion where Ashley and I shared our knowledge on blogging for your business, social media, photography, and design/styling, we took the ladies outside for a styled photo shoot of their very own. I designed this shoot so the gals could put to practice what they just learned in the morning sessions. The inspiration of this shoot was honeycombs and hexagons. We used the same ghost chairs as inside, paired with the amazing wood king table, all adorned with The Day's Design's beautiful floral arrangements. They were such a dream!

The cutest favors in the history of favors…little honey jars :) 

The most beautiful signage by Jessica Albers! I love the invitation suite photos, so it was fun to show the attendee's how to style them.

We had the most beautiful bridal models for the girl's to practice photographing also. SO lovely. That dress…be still my heart.

We asked another photographer in the area, Mary of Evie Jr. Photography, to come capture some of the day for us while we were busy teaching and hosting. Here are some of her photos below:

Oh, my heart is still full. I can't wait for the next workshops. Stay tuned, we're going to be announcing the next one in two weeks! Until then, you can like Bloom on Facebook to read blog posts from some ladies who attended the workshop. Reading their recaps has been pure bliss.
