Art & Soul Event's 2016 Wedding Planning Year-In-Review! A highlight reel of our Bold, Rebellious, and Creative Wedding Planning clients! Our planning adventures have taken us all the way up to the Sequoias in the Santa Cruz Mountains, through the sleepy wine towns (North of Santa Barbara) in Los Alamos, and down into the boulder coves of Joshua Tree. We have planned, designed, and/or managed magical weddings in amazing locations; including a forest, a motel parking lot, private estates, an avocado orchard, the high desert, and in some of our favorite Southern California wedding venues.Read More
When the Thrifted Sister girls tossed out the idea of going on a desert wedding venue crawl, I couldn't turn them down! Claudia, Nikki, Crystal, and I packed up the car and hit the road for the desert! We met up with the fabulous Alissa, of Alissa Noelle Photography, in Palm Springs and she documented our adventures!
We started our crawl at the beautiful and serene Korakia Pensione. We were given a tour of the enchanted grounds and then took a few quick snaps under the beautiful bougainvillea. It's one of my bucket-list dream venues. Call me?!
Next, we headed over to the ACE Hotel to get the party started! We ordered a few rounds of delicious grapefruit margaritas and grabbed a booth in the Amigo Room. Then we headed out to the "wish you were here" sign where Alissa gave us an impromptu "lifestyle" posing class. That girl sure knows how to work her cute little bod. I quickly learned, that in order to take a good picture, you will likely look ridiculous in the moment. My biggest posing lesson of the weekend was... when in doubt, look at Claudia! Claudia taught us the hair swing, boomerang strut, and how to throw a peace sign when you don't know what to do with your arm.
Next up, we headed over to Norma's at the Parker Palm Springs for a late lunch. Luckily for us, Crystal was pregnant and willing to be our designated driver for the weekend. We ordered another round and then took a quick tour of the property at sunset.
We then jumped in the car and drove to Pioneertown in the high desert. The awesome new owners of Rimrock Ranch, Eric + Gwen, welcomed us into their home with tacos and wine! After we had dinner and settled into our rooms, we all met around the fire to make s'mores and drink wine! I can't think of a better way to end our amazing day. A few of us got up to watch the incredible desert sunrise before we had coffee and hit the road.
I'm so thankful that Nikki, Crystal, Claudia, Alissa, and I said yes to this adventure. I hadn't been on a girls trip since before Jordan was born. I didn't even know how bad I needed that time to be an adult and have some fun! Big huge thanks to Alissa Noelle Photography for capturing our desert venue crawl!

Last week, I had the pleasure of leading another Tuesdays Together West LA meetup. We met in Brentwood on the patio of Fleurish and chatted while sipping Alfred's coffee and eating Suzy Bakes cupcakes. We had a nice group of 16, 13 of which were new to the meet up.
If you're unfamiliar with the Rising Tide Society, their mission is to educate & empower creatives to thrive in the spirit of community over competition. Tuesdays Together, is "a meetup on the second Tuesday of every month where creatives + entrepreneurs gather together for coffee and conversation. An open space for idea sharing and goal building."
Our topic for the January meetup was reset and goal-setting. We talked about what we did right in 2015 and our plans for 2016. We shared our struggles and our successes! We all walked away with a new connection and a new tool for our business. The meetup was a big success and I can't wait for February!
If you are an Artist, Blogger, Boutique Owner, Calligrapher, Designer, Event Planner, Florist, Makeup Artist, Photographer, Stylist, Wedding Pro, Writer or a Small Business CEO, and you believe in spreading kindness in your creative community, then you should definitely come check us out!
The historic Paramour Estate is absolutely beautiful and dark and moody all at once. It has a sprawling lawn, a pool surrounded by a beautiful bougainvillea tree, and the best view in Los Angeles. If you're looking for an incredibly cool venue with history, a unique style, and a little edge, this might be the perfect Los Angeles wedding venue for you!Read More
