I'm SO SO to share these images with you from the recent FORAGE & FERN workshop held in Carmel with TEC PETAJA. Despite me coming down with strep throat after the first night welcome dinner, it was such an amazing rewarding week and the group of attendees we had, well, I truly can't say enough good things about them. Every single person who attended was fabulous and it's not often you can say that! I made so many lovely new friends and I'm sad that I live so very far away from most of them. Thank goodness for skype and ichat!
I'm so grateful for the incredible vendors who joined us for the week and made it what it was. Carrie from TYPE A SOCIETY poured her heart and soul into creating the stunning shoots, Katie from PONDEROSA & THYME seriously this lady is a magic charm!! If you've met her you'll know what I mean. Her floral creations are pure poetry! The absolutely lovely JESS WILCOX who is a genius when it comes to hair & make-up, ANNA LORD who was such a darling helping out with anything and everything on top of documenting the workshop on film and JON CU who we couldn't have gotten by without, and is a superstar of the best kind with the biggest heart!
We had STEPHEN LEWIS DESIGNS create this stunning gold gown for us which was just gorgeous and was accessorised with a veil from GIRL WITH A SERIOUS DREAM and a MELINDA ROSE DESIGN headpiece. Exquisite jewels from TRUMPET & HORN were the piece-de-resistance. And can we please talk about that amazing bench made with the tree stump by METCALF WOODWORDS if only I could have bought this home with me!!
