health and wellness workshop

I'm a vegan cycling instructor and wellness blogger/speaker that lives . Every few weeks or so, I speak about a wide array of health and wellness practices at workshops I'm asked to and/or put on myself, all around the city. Next on my list is a vision board workshop! (Final date is still tbd.) The workshop will include a small matcha latte “how-to,” launch, an open discussion about wellness, and then, time to craft the vision board. This space looks like a perfect fit for an event like this.

special surprise baby shower

I am reaching out to you to request to book your lovely space for a bridal shower I am planning for the 18th. A little bit about me: I am in my late 20s and bringing together folks living in the tri-state area, mostly family and friends of the bride to make her bridal shower a special surprise. A little bit about the event: attendees are 25 females, we plan to have some light catering, beverages, gift opening and games for the occasion. We would also like to set up some decorations such as balloons and streamers. We are hoping for a beautiful summer day so would like to host the lunch outside. I would love to know at your convenience how many chairs are on the premises for use.

boudoir shoot for 5 women

I am a photographer working on growing my portfolio in the commercial world. I have spent the last 5 years working on conceptual projects internationally. Since returning, multiple people have encouraged me to work commercially. Therefore I am taking a leap of faith and trying to support myself just as events and portrait photographer. 5 women plus myself will have a boudoir shoot using minimal equipment so the floors will be protected. The models will come prepared so we have no need for a makeup artist, which will ideally prevent mess and clean up. As a professional I can ensure the space will be very well cared and all moved further (if needs moving) will be put back into place prior to our departure.
