You might be wondering what your ticket to Bloom Bash includes! Let us fill you in:
- Two full days of education and learning. Time-tested strategies from industry leaders, practices you can put into action in your business and blog now, and hands-on training. Bonus pre-workshop networking mixer included.
- Day One Sessions include: Blogging, Branding, Photography, Styling & Design.
- Day Two Hands-on includes: Floral arranging class, calligraphy class, social media, and your choice of two breakout sessions (Photography & The Client Experience OR Styling & Standard Principles of Design). Attendees will take home their floral arrangement and vessel as well as their full calligraphy kit including pen, nib, ink and instructional materials.
- A fully styled wedding photo shoot at the end of day two including tablescapes, florals, bride, groom and a styling station. Refine and develop your photography and styling skills in a relaxed environment, where no one will compete to "get the shot". This is hands-on and attendees will be actively shooting and styling. Photos may be used for personal portfolios. We will also be sharing how to dream up and execute styled shoots of your own, as we find these crucial to finding your ideal client.
- Daily insight from a panel of hand-selected experts. We use this time at the end of each day to open the floor to questions of all kinds-- nothing is off limits. Our speakers and panelists all have a passion for sharing their knowledge on their craft. You'll find this time very comfortable, casual, and informative as we are open to discussing things as serious as contracts, to as personal as how to balance work and home life.
- Networking opportunities. Bloom takes pride in featuring speakers and guests who love to share their hearts and success. You will love the warm environment that sets the stage for developing new lasting friendships, mentors, business partnerships, and collaborations.
- Catered breakfast and lunches on both days of the workshop. Dessert is our favorite, so you can expect that as well!
- Professional headshots of yourself or your team. Ashley Slater Photography and Christine Doneé Photography will be providing an opportunity for you to have your photos taken for your website, social media or blog.
- A sweet bag of swag and other thoughtful gifts, sprinkled throughout the two-day workshop.
- Support after the workshop comes to an end. We love to continue working with you even after the workshop is over. Our Facebook group provides a space for attendees to bounce ideas off one another and share success!
What are past attendees saying about Bloom? Read below to find out!
"The styled shoot was so amazing. Ashley and Michaela put so much thought into the details. I've never been apart of a styled shoot before, but I've wanted to host my own style shoot and Bloom's set a really high standard. I loved the flowers! I think everything from the vintage table to invitations was very fitting for the venue.
The organization of the workshop was amazing. I am a high energy / anxious person and I never felt bored or like I was waiting for the next thing. The time flew by, the speakers were great, slide show and the booklet was extremely helpful. I've referenced it more than once since the workshop. I can't tell you how much I've talked about it and used that experience in my daily business." -- Kathryn Hager, little h creative.
