Mayesh Design Star Charleston Workshop Recap

 

The year is flying by, and although we have only one workshop left in our 2018 Mayesh Design Star workshop series, we still have our past three workshops to recap!

 

First up: CHARLESTON

 

Our May Charleston workshop was just featured on Botanical Brouhaha, but there are so many more beautiful photos we just had to share.

The workshop was held at The Cedar Room, a dreamy venue located in Charleston’s historic Cigar Factory. With white washed brick walls, tall windows and as much natural light as you could possibly hope for, this venue was more than perfect for our spring inspired workshop.

 


 

DAY ONE

 

As with our Miami workshop, we started the workshop Monday evening with a networking event. The students enjoyed appetizers and wine while meeting one another and watching presentations from Ryan O’Neil of Curate & Jodi Duncan for Design Master. Following their educational presentations, Kaylee discussed the important role mood boards play in her design process, and had each student create their own as a way to help define their style. Everyone – the Mayesh team included! – then went around and wrote a descriptive word next to each mood board, leaving each student with a long list of words to help articulate their style in five words. This exercise was a great way to get the students thinking about their unique styles and coming into day two with more intention.

 

 

 


 

DAY TWO

 

Day two was all about design. Kaylee and her assistant Jamie led the students in a group installation activity. When the students arrived, the ceremony was set up with a simple, bare arch and two large urn arrangements to show one option for a ceremony set up. Then, as a class they created the second ceremony option: a lush floral arch and aisleway installation using spirea, garden roses and peonies.

Following the installation, Kaylee demonstrated how she creates her signature bridal bouquets. The students then designed their own bouquets, finished off with gorgeous silk ribbon from Adorn Company and photographed with local model Hilary Rose.

Mayesh Design Star Miami Workshop Recap

 

As we gear up for our third workshop of the year in Seattle, we’re taking a look back on our first workshop this past January in Miami! Now that it has officially been published on Botanical Brouhaha, we’re excited to share some more of the beautiful photos and video to give you a look into what our Curate & Create Workshop Tour with Kaylee Young really looks like.

Our Miami workshop was held at 255 Studio, a photography studio in the vibrant Wynwood Arts District that provided the perfect blank canvas for Kaylee to work with.

DAY ONE

 

The workshop kicked off with an evening networking event. Two of our product sponsors (Hosa & Alexandra Farms) stopped by to talk about their products while the students ate delicious appetizers from Food Guy Catering. Then Kaylee led the class in a mood boarding activity in an effort to help the students define their own, unique design styles and come into the next day with intention.

 

 


 

DAY TWO

 

The second day of the workshop focused on design. Kaylee walked the students through her entire process from order curation to design. The students were then given the opportunity to create their own centerpieces using the most amazing product from our sponsors.

The last piece of the workshop was a group installation, led by Kaylee and her design assistant, Jamie Heusser. Together they created a chuppah and aisleway installation with a variety of foliages and garden roses.
