Behind the Scenes at the Summer Mini Gathering

Last August, we decided to try something new, that was a departure from our standard model of a 2-3 day retreat. A one day event, with some of the elements that we highlight in our regular Gatherings. We partnered with Belles Catering and Mims House along with several other fabulous vendors to create a shoot that was all about telling stories with food.

We created a story about a couple, both French artists, who were recently married and obsessed with art. They loved to cook, and wanted to host a small, beautiful dinner for their friends as a way to celebrate their recent elopement. We posted some images from that shoot here, but wanted to share some behind the scenes from the day.
