Instruction by myself (Angel Swanson) as well as insightful guest sessions by industry experts including film photographer Ryan Ray, Jen Campbell of Green Wedding Shoes, Jesi Haack of Jesi Haack Design, Carissa Jowett of JL Designs and Brittney Castro, certified financial planner and founder of Financially Wise Women.  Instruction will be classroom-style as well as hands-on, focusing on both the business side and the design side of planning weddings and events.
  2. 6 incredible meals (dinner on 10/19, breakfast + lunch on 10/20 and all 3 meals on 10/21!) plus plenty of delicious snacks.  All food is provided by either Heirloom LA (Sunday and Tuesday dinners) or LA Chapter, the fab restaurant at the Ace Hotel DTLA.
  3. A beautiful binder filled with the workshop’s curriculum including templates, outlines, sample documents and notes, tips and helpful resources.
  4. Carefully curated gifts and surprises — I can’t wait to delight each of the attendees with some of my favorite things.
  5. A stunning setting.  The workshop will be set and styled with care and chock full of details that you’d expect at any event of Love & Splendor.  Our dear friends from {found} vintage rentals, Casa de Perrin and La Tavola Linen will help us set the scene, with floral design by JL Designs.
  6. An authentic and heartfelt experience.  I am working hard to ensure that you will have plenty of personal attention, interaction with speakers and other attendees, and most of all, a genuine experience that is truly inspiring.  I look forward to the connections and memories that will be made in our time together.
