Upon arriving at the Ashford Estate I thought I was driving up to a scene from a movie. Once you turn the corner of the driveway and reach the iron gates with gold lions, it is simply breathtaking. The grounds were gorgeous and meticulous. After scooping them out and entering the estate, I could not believe the beautiful interiors. It felt more like a home rather than a huge mansion and the hospitality made it hard to leave.
The night was nothing short of fabulous and I would like to extend my warmest thank you to the talented professionals who created that lovely evening:
After three weeks of traveling nonstop producing photo shoots for the upcoming Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer issues, I had the pleasure of meeting some of the country’s most amazing talent. One leg of my trip was to the stunning state of Arizona where I was blown away by its natural beauty and warm hospitality. I had the honor to work with the historic Arizona Biltmore who hosted a very special VIP Networking event with Arizona’s finest talent. It was a memorable evening filled with meeting the most amazing people and I am humbled by the gracious hospitality that the Arizona Bilmtore extended to me.
I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude and thanks to Becky Blaine and Lindsay Russell of the Arizona Biltmore for providing such an amazing venue, delicious cuisine and sumptuous cocktails. It was a true honor to work with these ladies and their entire team and I am extremely grateful for their hospitality. Also, a very special thank to you Amy Mancuso of Amy Mancuso Events for being the backbone of this event. Amy is an event planner extraordinaire and I can’t thank her enough for putting together such a memorable event. A warm thank you to William McArdle of Avant-Garde for designing the most enchanting and inspiring floral creations, to Kalie Thorpe of Swank Audio Visual for the stunning lighting that created such an inviting atmosphere, to Deb Beggs of Classic Party Rentals for providing furniture and rental needs, to Youngsong Martin and Carrie Smith of Wildflower Linen for the gorgeous linens, to Gaetano the Flamenco guitarist who played impeccably, to Samantha Smith of Paintings by Samantha for capturing the event live with her incredible talent and a special thanks to Jared Platt of Platt Photography for capturing all of these special moments that I am honored to share with you. I hope to come back to Arizona soon and spend more time in one of the most amazing states in this country!
