Intrigue –3 Day Wedding & Event Design Workshop  

As many of you know I started my career as a wedding planner and have used the knowledge gained during my time in this role to build Intrigue into a thriving wedding design firm.  Although, my focus has shifted to flowers I still use these core event design techniques to create my events. This workshop is designed for budding wedding planners, planners looking to add event design to their services and to florists who want to introduce the design element to their floral offerings.

I am the kind of girl that believes in dessert before dinner.  So, for this special 3 day workshop I have developed a plan that will introduce the attendees to the beauty and luxury of a fully styled and designed event from the beginning.  Upon your arrival you will be greeted as a guest and after a short social gathering with the other excited attendees you will be treated to headshots set in a picture perfect wedding setting.  After headshots attendees are seated at a decadent table  where you will enjoy being immersed in a completely styled event dining on menu from one of our renowned Annapolis caterers while enjoying casual conversation with myself and your fellow attendees.  This allows everyone the opportunity to get to know one another while talking business and enjoying luxury. The next 2 days is more business mixed with beauty.  We get down and dirty about the details that go into designing the event your experienced the night before.  No subject goes untouched.  We discuss and get hands on with topics such as lighting, floorplans, tablescapes and even sales technique.
