THE KESH EXPERIENCE – SUMMER 2017

We had a busy summer and our summer workshop – The Kesh Experience held at The Radisson Blu – Aqua Hotel was one of our best moments of 2017. If you are a fan of soft colors then this soft pink and gold palette will leave you blushing! styled shoot was featured on Inside Weddings.

“This shoot was inspired by the private moments that are shared by the couple during the wedding day,” shares Akeshi Akinseye of Kesh Designs. A worthy subject, considering many of the brides and grooms featured in our real weddings advise engaged pairs to take a moment away from the hustle and bustle of the big day to enjoy their commitment to one another.

The model bride carried a bouquet of white orchids, and the bloom – along with a variety in a pink hue – was also included in the reception floral arrangements. “Orchids represent love and there was an abundance of them,” explains Akeshi. The centerpieces also had lush snowy hydrangeas along with roses in both pale and bright pink. The long king’s table showcased the displayed blossoms alternating between glass candelabrum placed atop the luxurious linens from Nüage Designs.

SPEAKER – CEO SIGNATURE CONFERENCE IN DC

I was invited to DC to speak.  The Signature CEO Conference offers a unique experience for Creative Entrepreneurs to accelerate and learn “the business of events”.  The concept of this two-day experience was inspired and created by a Creative Entrepreneur who wanted to create a harmonious environment for like-minded Creatives in the wedding and event planning industry.

It was such an honor to be invited to speak to other industry creatives. Photos by In His Image Photography
