This past weekend we had the pleasure to team up with the Bliss ladies for the third time to assist their annual Bliss & Bespoke wedding planner conference, which takes place right here in charming Charleston. Planners fly in from all over, for a weekend of inspiration and training at this all-inclusive luxe retreat. This year, we provided rentals for the final day demonstration and dinner put on by the talented Mindy Rice.

Mindy used our restoration tables for her floral demo earlier in the day. We loved how the rustic tables blended in with the woodsy surroundings of RiverOaks plantation. Later in the evening, the ladies were treated to a gorgeous meal by Harvest Catering to reminisce over the weekend’s events. Our plantation benchestablewaregold rim plates and gold rim glasses complimented the dinner decor. We also had our outdoor wicker furniture set up for a lounge. Paper & Ink hand-painted the gorgeous menus at each seat to mimic the linen design.

We love the shot of all the ladies with their iPhones. I guess this is what happens when you get a bunch of wedding designers together! Corbin Gurkin was also on hand to provide his photography magic, including the overhead view of the dinner. Word on the (Instagram) street is that he captured this shot from a second story window ledge – photographers will do anything for a the shot, right?!

Our kind thanks to the Bliss ladies for including us in this year’s wedding planner conference. They will be hosting their sister conference, Bliss & Bokeh for women wedding photographers in May.
