Adare Manor in Ireland was host to the Engage Luxury Wedding and Business Summit in October 2018. I was honored to be there as the photo director for the photography team that documents the three day event. Having been to about 17 or so Engages in a variety of capacities, from attendee, to photographer, to speaker, to main stage speaker to now photo editor and director was a treat. I mean, I have never worked as hard at an event ever, and was tasked with assigning coverage to the team, editing on the spot for social media and also photographing things myself! It was a whirl wind and I am grateful as ever to Rebecca Grinnals and Kathryn Arce for the experience. Ireland was a magical place and I am so excited to say that I am returning this summer for work!

Adare Village was right down the hill from Adare Manor and was so quaint and adorable. I could not get enough and poked around the windy streets and alley ways before Engage started so I could familiarize myself with the space!
Adare Manor had a fairy village in the woods. A FAIRY VILLAGE IN THE WOODS, GUYS. DID YOU HEAR ME.
Two of my most favorite humans: Cindy + Lefty Novotny. As real as you can get in the world! MUAH!!!!
Gardening nerds: These globe alliums are CRAZY AWESOME OMG I wanted to literally hug these arrangements and then to have ferns someone just help me please!
THEN: add in fairies frolicking around the garden party in Ireland and I am just a little girl dreaming up big dreams and then realizing I am awake AF and in charge of stuff I better stop day dreaming and get back to work!
Sylvia Weinstock is a LEGEND. I loved watching her interact with these birds
Little sweet Sylvia by this GIANT tree. She was so patient with me as we walked over and she snuggled up for me and my camera.
So. There was an absolute GAGGLE of ballerinas in the lobby and so. You know. I HAD TO PLAY WITH THEM!
How is this real life? How is this my JOB??
I am beyond obsessed with Nathalie Cadet James of Luxe Fete Event Planning in Miami. She is CRISP!
I loved that her family was there to see her present!
Christine of Red Bliss Design is so so talented and one of the sweetest creators. I adore her!
These two beautiful souls Ken and Ron of This Beautiful Life LLC!
Cannot WAIT to be back in Ireland this summer!! XOXOXO
