A few times a year the Wedding International Professionals Association, also known as WIPA, hosts events for us wedding professionals to celebrate, learn, and grow together. This Something Blue Speakeasy, Nashville Wedding Professionals quarter 4 event was a stunning, colorful event located at the historic Nashville venue, Estelle.
The amazing planner Modern Vintage Events, did a wonderful job creating a space that was comfortable and fun. She mentioned that when planning this event, she drew from the design of the charming Nashville venue, rich in history and full of character and texture. From there she incorporated a gorgeous color palette consisting of shades of pinks and red that highlighted the various spaces.
The Soft hues of pinks and reds were flawlessly woven throughout the design elements adding texture into each room. Gorgeous floral arrangements designed by Fiorella decorated the spaces. In an effort to create an inviting space where guests wanted to stay and converse, cozy furniture was placed throughout the event space. Using the planner’s inspiration as their direction, the vendor team did a killer job creating a welcoming, relaxed, moody atmosphere. I loved the warm candlelight that flickered on the tables, adding to the warmth of the space.
To start the night, attendees enjoyed creative cocktails and light bites. Meaningful conversations carried on throughout the evening as people enjoyed the company and the coziness created by the amazing planner and vendors. Then, an hour of education followed, featuring Matthew Wengerd from A Fine Press on Mastering Storytelling for Branding Success. It was a motivating presentation that left everyone fired up creatively.
Afterwards, Modern Vintage Events kept the energy going as guests made their way into the speakeasy for cocktails and small plates from Flavor Catering. Music inspired by Brooklyn restaurants played in the background enhancing the speakeasy vibe.
Everyone left the Something Blue Speakeasy Nashville Wedding Professionals event inspired and ready to tackle this last quarter of the year. It also allowed us to look ahead to the new year with excitement at what is to come. Thank you to everyone who attended and showed support! I am so grateful to be a part of such a wonderful and inviting group of wedding professionals! Until the next event!
