My incredibly talented florist friend, Inessa Nichols, hosted a dinner a couple weeks ago (before this crazy coronavirus outbreak!) to celebrate International Women’s Day with some boss women in the wedding industry. I am so lucky to work in an industry that is buzzing with inspiring women that I can look up to on the daily.
Not every industry has carved a path for women to succeed and I think the biggest reason the wedding industry feels so great for women is because we’ve learned to support each other instead of compete with each other!
I recently had a lightbulb moment & realized that no one had formally critiqued my work since I was an art student in college. So I looked around me and asked about 15 women in this industry that I respect so so much and said “will you tell me the hard stuff? No compliments, just show me my blind spots and where you think I need improvement”. Here’s the crazy part: they all said “Absolutely.” They said “I will help you” they said “Let’s make you stronger”. I owe these women a massive THANK YOU! This dinner celebrates moments like that!
Let’s keep lifting each other up & helping each other get better side-by-side 💛 Enjoy the photos of this stunning dinner party!
