If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I spent some time in Palm Springs in October with some fabulous industry pals.  The talented folks behind The Wedding Artists Collective hosted an incredible trip as part of their Collective Gatherings series.  I was thrilled to be included alongside so many of my favorite people at the Korakia Pensione in Palm Springs.  We spent 3 wonderful days together enjoying fabulous food & drink, laughing and getting to know one another better, and visiting some fabulous venues in the desert.  Today they are sharing Day 1 of our trip on 100 Layer Cake so make sure to check it out!

I want to emphasize that I was just an attendee at this fabulous trip — I had nothing to do with the planning or design.  What a delightful treat to simply sit back and soak up every beautiful detail as a guest.  It was downright luxurious and I can’t thank The Wedding Artists Collective enough for the refreshing time together.

My hats are off to the brilliant vendors who DID plan, create and design this experience.  What a team!!  My friends Megan of Enjoy Events Co. and Emily of Shotgun Floral Studio simply blew me away.  Check out a few gorgeous images (courtesy of Josh Goleman and Gary Ashley, of The Wedding Artists Collective) and make sure to click over to 100 Layer Cake to see the rest!

food by Whoa Nelly! was absolutely scrumptious!

I also couldn’t resist sharing this beautiful video by Courntey of Love+Brain Films, also a member of The Wedding Artists Collective…
