Lab Event 2014

Pictilio at The Lab Event

I did an interview recently for Delighted Magazine and was asked the following question. What do you love most about being part of the wedding industry?

This was the start of my answer.

As a photographer, it’s very easy to feel isolated. It’s just the two of us each day. We don’t have other employees, no company parties. But when the wedding day rolls around, you are part of a team of professionals all working together to create the best memories for a couple on their wedding day.

Clearly, when I did this interview I had forgotten about The Lab Event – better than any company party ever. Last night we had the pleasure of celebrating with fellow wedding industry peers. We toasted to creativity, hard work, and running our own businesses. We swapped stories and laughed together. And we ended the evening on the dance floor – the one place none of us fully get to enjoy on a wedding day.

The highlights from the night:

1. Collaborating with an incredible team of vendors to create a clean and beautiful White Wedding. It was our first time working with each of them, but I hope it won’t be our last. They are sweet, talented, and inspiring! Event Designer: Downey Street Events; Floral Designer: Sharla Flock Designs; Paper Designer: Lilikoi Design + Letterpress; Dessert Designer: A Spoon Full Of Sugar Cakes.

2. Getting silly in the Tomfoolery Photobooth. Thanks Jared and Edyta!

3. Having fun and good conversation with Going Lovely and Jihan Cerda.

4. Enjoying the deliciously delightful pairings from Paula LeDuc and the beautiful design and architecture of the Ferry Building.

5. Walking the room with Vitaliy and getting inspired by all of the creativity and talent of all the featured vendors. Each vignette was unique just like every bride and groom we get to serve.

6. Getting to chat with old friends, make new ones, and talk to some sweet and newly engaged brides.

7. Ending the night on the dance floor with our team! It can’t be all work and no play.

Thanks are in order for Erin from Bustle Designs, Allison from Engaged and Inspired, and Yasmin from Floral Theory for putting together another spectacular event! We are so looking forward to the upcoming wedding season.
