If you have ever emailed us, you have most likely communicated with Alyssa, who coordinates with all our clients, vendors, workshop partners, social media and all around keeping me on task! She also happens to be my sister, which makes it extra fun when we get to travel together.

When she moved back to Los Angeles this summer, we wanted to find a shared workspace that she could work out of occasionally and we were so fortunate to see that Gather Events was offering exactly what we were looking for pretty much right after Alyssa had moved!

The Gather ladies have put together a beautiful space that is now also available for other professionals to rent to hold workshops. So what better way to showcase the space than to hold an intermediate calligraphy class! All the vendors working in the space pulled together to make this a really fun {and tasty!} afternoon for our calligraphers. Rachel from Lupa & Pepi did all the signage, Dan from The Whaling Club mixed up some yummy mimosas using our favorite OneHOPE sparkling and Bess from Celadon & Celery added a pop of color with her bud vase florals. Classic Party Rentals provided some great stemware for the bar/coffee and we were all set with Marie Buck Photography on hand to capture it all!
