I was recently asked to attend FRESHbash, an exquisitely designed wedding fair and event, on behalf of Black Sheep Bride, a socially conscious wedding network.  FRESHbash, a thoughtfully curated showcase of design exhibitions and experiences meant to raise the creative bar and inspire the senses for the wedding industry.  It took place at the Beatnik Studios in ​Sacramento, a perfect location for this amazing design-centric event.  I have to add that Beatnik Studios would be the perfect location for a wedding: I’m adding it to my ever growing list of dream places to photograph weddings at!

The event was impeccably decorated by some amazing teams of wedding designers, planners, florists and print-masters.  In addition, it featured experiential stations like a paper calligraphy station, amazing photo booths in cars by The Photo Booth Bug, craft mixology sponsored by Honeybook and Liquidology, fun and innovative food from s+s Gastropub, and unexpected thrills like a human popcorn stand.  You can check out all the amazing design talent that helped contribute to this event over at the  FRESHbash website.

A few of the vendors I was most impressed with included the super rad D’Railed Beauty Trolley, a traveling beauty salon for your wedding day that comes to you!  I also met Ara Arbabzadeh, head of VIP Photography Studios in Davis, CA whose spirit and mutual love of wine I absolutely fell for.  I was also super stoked to finally meet Geoff Bardot, head photographer at The Goodness.  His work is bright, sassy and fun and although we’ve also shared referrals with each other, it was the first time we were able to meet in person!
