Entwined: Winter Party at Highlands!
For our last event of 2013, Patricia and I sought to find an intimate venue that people might not have been to before (but now will frequent!) and delicious cocktails. As many of you know, Patricia lives in the West Village, so when she found this gem of a place (Highlands), the search was over!
Thank you to all of the new and returning friends and vendors who came out to celebrate with us! It has been an incredible year and l am in awe looking back at how Entwined as grown and all the incredible people I have connected with this year. Although Entwined is "one more thing on my plate", I have absolutely never resented the time I spend on it, the joy it brings me is beyond measure. It is truly an honor that you all see value in what we have created and the friendships we have forged.
As a special treat for the night, Emily of Lael Cakes was so gracious and offered up sweet treats made especially for Entwined! They were a huge hit, who doesn't love Almond Rose Water Gluten-Free Macarons?! Thank you Emily!
A heart felt thank you to Jake of JBM Wedding Photography for shooting our event at The Highlands, you out did your self and perfectly captured the warmth and fun of the night!
I look forward to continuing to get to know new wedding industry professionals, bond with the ones I am already close with, and see us all flourish in 2014!

Entwined: 61 Local + The Wild Ivy + SquareSpace
This month's Entwined event I think I can say was a "bucket list market-off" for many of us... we all got to wear gorgeous flowers crowns at a bar! I can't thank The Wild Ivy enough for being a part of our event and graciously creating lovely crowns for all of us women...and men! We were so fortunate to have SquareSpace as a sponsor this month, they made the flower crowns and wall decoration possible! All of this wouldn't have been complete without the hospitality of 61 Local and their private event space. I hope you enjoy the images as much as we loved posing for them!
As always, Patricia and I are so amazed and thankful that you all continue to join us at Entwined events, we love hosting them, seeing all your smiling faces and catching up. Cheers to a wonderful Entwined community!
A huge thanks to Jaine of Brklyn View Photography for lending her talents to our event and shooting these gorgeous pictures!

Entwined Event: Hotel Chantelle
It's that time of year for summer soirees! This June, Patricia and I hosted our Entwined event on the rooftop space of Hotel Chantelle, and we couldn't have asked for a more lovely evening! The rain held off (except for a 2 minute drizzle - but the space has a retractable glass roof!), talented wedding vendors came out in grande numbers, and the cocktails were delightful!
Thank you to everyone who came and made this little meet up such a wonderful success again! We love seeing your smiling faces and catching up on all the inspiring work you are a part of.
A specially thank you to CJ of Charlie Juliet Photography for joining us and graciously taking pictures of the evening for us, you are amazing!

Entwined: Reinstein Ross
For our most recent Entwined event, Patricia and I were so pleased to collaborate with the jewelry company Reinstein Ross! They have a lovely studio and store on 5th avenue, so chic! Not only is their jewelry gorgeous, it is also all locally made! The weather cooperated with us so that we could also take advantage of their adorable backyard patio.
As you can see, we all have a lovely time mingling, drinking bubbly and checking out the baubles!

Entwined Event: Holiday party!
What a year it has been! I started these events at the beginning of this year, and I couldn't have imagined how much I would come to enjoy and value what has grown out of them. I am so delighted and thankful that I met my co-conspirator, Patricia, of Fourteen-Forty through this process, she has been a integral part of Entwined's growth and a true friend.
For our final event of 2012 we choose to host a holiday party at the intimate and delicious, Middle Branch (some of you may know its sister venue, Little Branch). Lucinda, the manager, and the team there were so gracious and inviting. Even preparing us a specialty cocktail for the evening: Regal Gold Rush Royal - now try saying that 5 times in a row! (See below image for the full ingredient list)
Patricia and I couldn't have been more pleased with the crew of industry professionals, and now friends, who came out to join us on a cold night in December! Many wonderful ideas were hatched for 2013, we reminisced over 2012, and we caught up on life.
Cheers to you all and here's to a promising 2013!
A warm thank you to Tim Gibson for graciously documenting our event!
