I had the opportunity last November to attend a workshop with some truly amazing people headlining. People like Julie Paisley, Jeremy Chou, Michael & Carina, and Lauren Fair were all there to encourage us to shoot film more often and how to incorporate it into our wedding businesses. While there, I had the opportunity to shoot four completely different styled shoots, but first I wanted to show you a little behind the scenes moments at the workshop.

Day 1

I arrived at the Historic Cedarwood in Nashville, TN and am stopped in my tracks with this gorgeous venue! Cedarwood is a truly amazing venue because they do all of their own styling and flower arranging in house.

When we found our seat, we were greeted by these cute boxes with a lot of fun nods to Nashville in them. Jack and Coke in a mason jar, anyone?

What's a workshop without a little competition? The speakers challenged us to stretch our creative muscle and create an invitation flat lay with some gorgeous invitation suites by Designs In Paper and ribbon from Honey Silks & Co.
