Things heated up in Arizona for our first-ever The Knot Scottsdale Workshop at The Saguaro. The venue was the perfect location for our modern bohemian event. The day was all about learning, making new connections, and of course fun!
Jessica and Ashlee of the The Rustic Prickly Pear incorporated so many local aesthetics into their design to create a cool southwest vibe. We loved it all- from the hanging macramé (Dang! Fine Rentals & Designs) to the equipale stage furniture (The Saguaro). Our dear friend Kaleigh of Méldeen teamed up with the lovely ladies of The Rustic Prickly Pear to create all of the stationery design including acrylic signage and boho inspired print materials (menus and place settings). Check out more of the AZ inspired decor, like the array of cactus captured by the talented Ryann Lindsey Photography below!
You guys need to check out these adorable cactus macaroons (A Bakeshop) that were SO Insta-worthy and yummy.
The lunch tables were dressed with cool blue linen (Classic Party Rentals) and the most lovely lace plates (The Confetti Studio). The dreamy teepee centerpieces were topped with the floral bunches and succulents (The Local Steam).
Attendees got the chance to learn from some pretty awesome guest speakers throughout the day. Local pros including Taryn Pollock of Serendipity Cinematography , Jennifer Thye of Imoni Events, Katie Easley of Kate Ryan Design, and Kayla Bellitt of Some Like It Classic Events shared real life experiences. We also got to learn from Brian Leahy of Brian Leahy Photography (Network to Net Worth), Sam Jacobson of Ideaction Consulting (Pricing Strategies), Jove Meyer of Jove Meyer Events (LGBT Wedding Planning), and Melissa Jill of Melissa Jill Photography (Panel Discussion For Photographers and Videographers).
We brought even more hot content to AZ! We offered three breakout sessions including:
- Couples Conversions: Driving Quality Leads through Email, Video, and The Knot Storefront
- Panel Discussion For Photographers and Videographers: Building Your Dream Client Base
- Social Media Q&A with Samantha Roberts: A Complementary Session to Our Mainstage Social Media Presentation
Attendees were able to sit in on a breakout session of their choice. Creating more learning opportunities is what it's all about. Get a sneak peak of the breakout sessions below!
After a long day of learning we got to enjoy some quality party time with friends! We celebrated pride month with fun rainbow inspired props in the photo booth (ShutterBooth Arizona) while enjoying prickly pear margaritas (The Saguaro) and music (SKM Entertainment).
