We headed to Savannah for our full day workshop at The Westin Savannah Harbor Gold Resort & Spa. The day began with Baker’s Pride Bakery award winning donuts —we most certainly could not leave without one! Attendees were greeted with the sweetest treats at their seats. Think: lip balm (Savannah Bee Company), Georgia landscape inspired cookies (Vanilla & The Bean), and custom hand towels (Number Four Eleven). The day was filled with learning, networking, and SO much inspiration. Every detail throughout the day was so thoughtful and Insta-worthy!
Tara of Posh Petals and Pearls incorporated the most beautiful elements of southern charm into her design. The path leading up to the stage was lined with the most beautiful lush floral thanks to Harvey Designs. The stage backdrop was bursting with greenery and we loved every minute of it. Other wow elements included the handmade Savannah Peach pillows (The Savannah Bag Co.), the sweet calligraphy design that was on all signage (Ashley Curry Calligraphy), and the stunning jewelry for the headshot bar (Kendra Scott). Our talented bestie, Kaleigh of Méldeen teamed up with the lovely Posh Petals and Pearls team to design all the stationery pieces with so much southern charm. She included hand-tied satin bows on the programs and straw signage (We couldn’t get enough). Check out more of the southern charm inspired details captured by the amazing Kelli Boyd Photography!
Okay, so lunch was so good we had to go up for seconds. The Westin Savannah Harbor Gold Resort & Spa served up shrimp + grits and the most delicious biscuits (just to name a few)! We especially loved al the greenery incorporated into tented lunch area—like the pressed glass goblets. Let’s not forget about the chill music vibes thanks to Moon River presents Harden & Crenshaw and the refreshing poptinis (Savannah Square Pop). We also enjoyed getting a chance to chat with so many amazing local wedding pros!
Attendees got the chance to learn from some pretty awesome industry rock stars throughout the day. Local pros including Alysse Sweeney (Design Studio South), Brian Worley (Bold Events and Design), Bobbi Brinkman (Bobbi Brinkman Photography), and Kelly Revels (The Vine Garden Market + Design Studio) shared real life experiences during the Pro Panel. We also got to learn from Jove Meyer of Jove Meyer Events (Marketing to LGBT Couples), Ceci Johnson of Ceci New York (How To Set Yourself Apart), Sam Jacobson of Ideaction Consulting (Your Top Pricing Questions — Answered!). We got so many tips for the taking thanks to each pro for opening up to their peers!
After a long day of learning, we got to enjoy some quality party time with friends! We enjoyed yummy ice cream (Leopold’s Ice Cream), an array of gourmet flavored popcorn (Savannah Rae’s Gourmet Popcorn) and Frosé (The Westin Savannah Harbor Gold Resort & Spa) together. We also had so much fun in the photo booth (All About You Entertainment). What an amazing day learning new ways to better the wedding industry together. We hope to visit our new and old friends in Savannah again soon!
