In many companies it can take years to be at the table with head executives or influencers of the company. Well it definitely was not the case this past week. I had the opportunity to participate in a 3 day hands-on retreat that has single handedly become one of the most inspiring and moving weeks of my life. This inaugural event was appropriately name Oh So Inspired and took place in one of the most magical places in the country - Sonoma, CA. I connected, laughed, and bonded with some of the most influential wedding & event industry players in Northern California including (but not limited to) KT Merry, Marcy Blum, and experts of leading wedding and style publications. It was a week full of creative learning such as floral classes which included designing a chuppah, sketching lessons, calligraphy tutorials, and culinary cooking experiences. What I took away from this week was priceless.
Thank you to all the amazing speakers for the amazing nuggets of information. Thank you to the participants/friends who welcomed me with open arms. Special shoutout to Laurie Garza and Kim Kalmbach. Thank you to Nancy Liu Chin, Mary Phan, and Kelly McLeskey-Dolata for taking inspiration into reality and creating Oh So Inspired. I especially want to thank Nancy Liu Chin for connecting me to this world of floral and design. Here's to many more years of inspiration and the future of gromeza floral design studio. Check out a couple of shots of the week. Enjoy!
