I’m back today with a little more love from my time at Engage!12 at The Breakers in Palm Beach… I can usually be seen sketching the incredible decor and details and love to share the results! I had a little fun sketching some of the Engage!12 speakers…just a little.  These each take about 2 minutes are meant to be pretty rough and whimsical… Here we have The Party Goddess, Cindy Novotny, Shira Savada and Mindy Weiss! I’ve started a new tradition at each conference where I begin sketching an original pattern to see what evolves as the event does….This pattern […]

Every one and a while a project comes along that captures your heart.  This is one of those projects. Many of you know from following over the years, I’ve been involved with the iconic Engage! Wedding Symposiums for the past 5 years.  Not your typical conference by far, these epic gatherings are a mingling of minds, hearts and passions.  Twice a year I join the best in the industry in some of the most impressive locations coast to coast; from Grand Cayman and Las Vegas, to San Diego and the incomparable Breakers in Palm Beach.

So I have a story for you and not the kind of story you might expect to hear after I’ve been at a fabulously orchestrated, glam conference in Las Vegas.  As on onlooker you may think our days are filled with all that is beautiful, creative and just plain wonderful.  I must admit, I have pinch-me moments often as my job, the way I make a living and support my family in most ways is a dream.    BUT, there are some days that try the soul.  Last Saturday was one of those days for me. A stationers worst nightmare came […]

Every year, twice a year I head off to some lovely location to mingle with industry friends at the legendary wedding symposiums called Engage!  The experience of Engage! goes far beyond mingling, to a higher place where like-minded artists get to let their hair down, speak freely and get to the heart of what it is we do everyday…tell love stories. So a little peek at all the fun to start from Lori and Matt of I Do Films in Chicago…Look closely, you get to see me painting a bit in here! Don’t let the artful decor and brilliantly branded […]
