On August 30th, Kesh Designs held our very first floral and event design workshop led by owner, Akeshi Akinseye at the beautiful Waldorf Astoria Chicago and we cannot stop gushing about it. We are so excited to share some photos and from this amazing workshop experience.
Attendees from all over flew in to learn and get educated on the tricks and techniques behind our floral and event design creations and learn about branding, marketing and the business aspect of floral and event design. Attendees got to spent 2 full days learning all aspects of being a floral and event designer, networking and creating a real event.
Designs for the workshop included creating lush and romantic bouquets, grand floral centerpieces with detailed layers, ceremony design, a stunning floral entryway, a flower wall and full ballroom transformation.
The workshop was wrapped up with a beautiful event ” The Fairytale Experience” featuring stunning Galia Lahav couture gowns from Bella Bianca Bridal Couture with hair by Juan Jose Herrera and Make Up by Make Up by Aga and Styled by Issac King, a flower wall designed by our attendees under the direction of Akeshi, upbeat music by Cagen Music, Beautiful invitations, menus, place cards and luxurious stationery by Gourmet Invitations. Guests were also treated to some live painting by the talented Lothar Speer of Brush and Heart.
The ballroom at The Waldorf Astoria was transformed into a true fairytale event. A luxurious tabletop design was created and no detail was left out. Guests and attendees enjoyed delicious bites and cocktails created by the Waldorf Chef and some fun entertainment throughout the space. Please enjoy these beautiful photos by the amazing Carasco Photography.
Thank you to everyone involved in this workshop and finale event and making it a HUGE success. It was a dream come true.
