This past May I traveled to the town of Calistoga outside of Napa to attend a workshop hosted by floral goddess, Kate Holt, of Flowerwild. I learned of her workshop on social media and immediately knew I had to take advantage of what turned out to be the most inspiring opportunity of my life. The workshop was two whole days of sharing meals, conversation, making bouquets, and a photoshoot. We arrived the night before for a welcome dinner and enjoyed the two full days of amazingness before sharing our final breakfast together.
I was so nervous and apprehensive about attending this workshop. I was in a position at a flower shop where I was designing, delivering, cleaning, and doing all things floral related, but I hadn't had the chance to pick my product and have my own creative freedom - and I craved that. I can't say enough delightful things about Kate. She was the most humble person with talent that is unparalleled. We got the chance to work with Jose Villa, a world renowned photographer that we were all starstruck over. I am so thankful to have met all of the amazing ladies from around the world and to Kate for having me assist her in some amazing weddings since attending the workshop. It is fitting that this is the day after Thanksgiving because this is an experience that I am forever thankful for.
