We are still reminiscing over the magical Engage Summits that we attended this Summer at The Breakers in Palm Beach! Today, we are re-capping our experience with highlights and amazing pictures to share! The days were filled with educational sessions by design role models in the industry and break out sessions, and the nights were filled with over the top parties to network with other attendees from all over the world! Every single event was thoughtfully curated down to the very last detail. Each day was filled with inspiration and fun surprises that we are excited to share with you! Each Engage starts with a color palette, and this year it was coral, red, champagne, pink, and gold, which you will see embedded throughout the entire 3 day conference! 

Lets start with registration, where you were handed a tote bag to walk through the "pop up shop" gift boutiquerie and fill your bag with all kinds of goodies! What a way to start the week!

Next up was the opening session, with each chair set up with a pad and pen to get the creative juices flowing! 

That evening was the poolside soiree, complete with an avocado bar, fire pits in the pool (how cool!?) and an amazing band to keep everyone dancing all night long! 

Nuage was a sponsor for the event, and  boy oh boy we loved every single linen! We wanted them ALL! The next day started with a New Orleans style jazz brunch, with a big band in the beautiful courtyard. We loved how each event had personalized napkins that fit the theme, and 'breakfast of champions' was definitely fitting for this delicious spread! 

The morning session blew us away! The ballroom was covered in pink + gold with pineapples, gold tufted lounge, and a floral runner full of coral charm peonies! The ballroom was so pretty, we didn't want to leave! This day was full of amazing speakers including Preston Bailey, Mindy Weiss, Jes Gordon, Colin Cowie, and so many more!  

As we entered the breakout session, we were greeted by a gospel choir singing "Happy" by Pharell which was so fitting for the happy break full or rainbows and smiles! Next was the beach club rose lunch followed by a popsicle break that afternoon. That evening we went to a dine around session with fellow attendees and the sugar party that night! You could say we were on a sugar high after this day!

The next day started with a peaches and cream breakfast. We spent the rest of the morning in the media lounge with a beautiful floral watercolor backdrop networking with popular wedding magazines including The Knot, Brides, Style Me Pretty, Martha Stewart and Destination-I-Do to name a few. The day concluded with a crouquet lawn all white lunch complete with floral flamingos! 


That evening was the INCREDIBLE Gala, it seriously took our breath away!! The night started with a cocktail hour and glass of bubbly, a presentation of the colors by the color guard, and a surprise guest appearance from opera singer Fernando Varela. Chandeliers hanging from everywhere, our dream come true! Following the dinner was the Purple Rain themed afterparty, the perfect ending! 


We are so grateful for all of the new relationships we made at Engage and cannot wait for next year! Thank you to Rebecca and Kathryn, and all of the vendors who contributed to this unforgettable experience!

Middleton Place Wedding: Andrea + Chris

Picture horse drawn carriage rides, oak trees dripping in moss, and spring flowers in full bloom at Charleston's beautiful Middleton Place. This was the setting for Andrea + Chris' romantic, April wedding. Andrea wore a gorgeous lace, open-back gown from Gown Boutique; Chris a handsome, dark gray suit. Andrea and her stunning bridesmaids rode the horse drawn carriage to the ceremony site where Chris awaited his bride's walk down the aisle. Andrea and her father glided down the aisle at the Butterfly Lake's Charleston Virtuosi's playing in the background.

After exchanging vows over looking the Butterfly Lakes, Andrea + Chris invited their guests to enjoy "Planter's Punch" and "Arnold Palmer's" under the mossy oaks at Middleton Place's Crane Pool. Cocktail hour took place in front of azalea hill accompanied by scrumptious hors d'oeuvres. The duo took photos with their bridal party and got some truly memorable snapshots together.

The light blue table cloths, pink linen napkins and white and pink floral arrangements perfectly complimented the Pavilion. Lanterns were scattered throughout the ceiling's draping to light up the night! Guests followed their escort cards to their assigned table, where they found a mini-bottle of firefly awaiting their arrival with a sweet note from the Bride + Groom.

Brick Lane Catering served a delicious three-course dinner with salads, soup and a main course - all of which looked mouth-wateringly delish! The newlyweds cut into their elegant champagne cake by Twenty Six Divine decorated with a cascade of flowers. Guests danced like there was no tomorrow alongside The Dickens, until it was actually time for their departure through a sea of sparklers!
