Engage Summit Day Three – The Breakers Palm Beach


Engage Summit Day Three was such a bittersweet day! After a few packed days of parties and lessons learned, everyone was equal parts eager to get home to get to work feeling refreshed and sad to be leaving The Breakers. Day Three started off strong with a Peaches and Cream Tropical Breakfast and was followed by a fabulous flamingo inspired Croquet Lawn Lunch. After lunch we all went back to our rooms to start the glam process for the Gala later that night which did Not disappoint. The Gala is the climax to the Engage! Summit and it is absolutely S T U N N I N G. Dripping with crystal chandeliers, soft draping, candelabras, high gloss dance floor and gorgeous florals from top to bottom. It was a highlight to the day and such a fun way to end the summit. The Purple Rain After Party kept the dance party going long into the night and was another beautifully designed space with the iconic purple uplights, decor, and abundant floral centerpieces around the lounge areas.

This summit was so incredibly needed to regroup for this second half of 2016!

Engage Summit Day Two – The Breakers Palm Beach

bourbon street breakfast

We hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July Weekend! Our Couture team was all over the place this weekend rocking our red, white, and blue with pride. We’re continuing our Engage Summit adventures with photos from Day Two! If you missed Day One be sure to check it out here! It is such a whirlwind to relive these events, there was so much talent in one space and it was such an honor to learn from these people we love and bring those lessons back to our team.

We started Day Two with a New Orleans inspired Breakfast of Champions. Every food station was named after a different street in NOLA and the decor was reminiscient of that classic southern charm. We went straight into our morning session and then had a ‘HAPPY BREAK’ which was exactly what it sounds like…bright yellow, cheerful, emoji filled snacks and smiles all around. Our beach club lunch followed and it had the cutest cabana inspired decor right down to the coral shaped metallic menus. Our main session was so inspiring – really well respected men and women in the wedding community stood before us and shared their best kept secrets, their highs and lows, and their advice for us, their peers, as we forge ahead with our dreams and goals in this industry.

The night ended with an amazing popsicle break and SUGAR.PARTY. that’s right folks. Sugar, candy, confections, all you could eat. Dancers and gymnasts adorned with sprinkles for make-up, brightly-colored wigs, and sweets like you wouldn’t believe. It was such a fun celebration and a great way to end night two as we prepared for the Gala on night three…more to come tomorrow!

A Toast To The Season, The Lodge At Torrey Pines


This December we were invited to be a part of The Lodge at Torrey Pines’ annual Toast to the Season Event! The Lodge was all aglow and it was a great time to connect with our industry friends to celebrate another amazing year of weddings and to look forward to the year ahead!

The Lodge at Torrey Pines offers such a wonderful blend of classic and beach vibes! Its’ world-renown golf course and craftsman-style architecture are the perfect nod to tradition, and the cliffs overlooking La Jolla shores create timeless, sun-kissed romance. Thank you Torrey Pines for hosting us and inspiring us as we head into 2016!
