2016 has been a year of radical change, uncertainty about our future, and divides of the past resurging and rooting down deeper than ever. With so much affecting the future landscape of our political sphere, environment and humanity, this Thanksgiving - more than ever - is the ideal time to step away from ourselves and reflect on what is happening in the world around us. What worries you? What ignites a spark in you? What can you do to make a positive impact on our future?

Start by shifting your meaning of Thanksgiving to a Giving Gathering - the 'giving' part of this holiday. We know Thanksgiving as a time to reflect inwardly and be thankful for the good in our lives but let's change our intentions to reflect outwardly and focus on giving back when it's more important than ever. While we're still using this time to be thankful, this year rather than writing our 'thankful' notes down, we are writing down ways we want to give. 

We gathered as a team to set our intentions of giving back, celebrate what's to come, and enjoy one another's company. We were inspired by the rugged coastline of the Pacific Northwest that is wild, natural, and pure. We brought our favorite dishes and recipes to share with each other while discussing causes we're passionate about, how we're getting more involved in our community, and how we're planning on making a positive impact on the world we live in. How are you giving this year?

What Happens When We Produce A Photo Shoot in Italy

Ever wonder what happens when creatives collaborate with some of their favorite people on the planet? Well, if they’re lucky, they end up with photos that make the experience look just as epic as it sounds. Overlooking the bustling city of Florence, Villa Cora has that dreamy Tuscan romance vibe down to a T. Once we discovered this incredible venue, we had a collective, “andiamo!” moment, and gathered a team of some of our favorite creatives to collaborate with us. Together we created a series of photos that celebrate this gorgeous Italian setting. 

Meanwhile, the vibrant interiors provided a stark contrast of bright colors and pure opulence. With a property that features so many eye-catching design elements, it can be a bit of a trick to capture photos that aren’t too busy, so our team decided to embrace a minimalist design strategy that shows off the architecture, grounds, and combination of beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces captured by KT Merry Photography. We brought in a few pops of flora for color and drama, and relied on the property to tell its own story as the setting of a fine romance.

Celestial Moon Masquerade Dinner Party
Under The Moonlight
REPORTER: Cortnie Fausner

The universe is a wondrous place full of the unknown, and as we enter 2016, we celebrate entering into 365 days masked in mystery. We don't know what the year ahead holds for us, and that is the beauty of the New Years Eve celebration. We dream of the unimaginable and the unthinkable as we celebrate under the moon at midnight with confetti, champagne and wild dance parties. NYE celebrations are for the dreamers and believers.  

Now, imagine hosting a 'Masquerade on the Moon Dinner Party!'. You create a celestial, sparkling, star-lit flooded scene with gemstones, geodes, ivory quartz and small touches of glistening gold. You will serve up star caviar appetizers and magical chocolate moon pies for dessert over a dinner table flooded with dripping, ivory taper candles. Maybe you even invite a fortune teller or an astrologist to give your guests a fun peek into the new year!

The dress code? Glittering sequined dresses, faux fur jackets, funky white sneakers, heels and moon boots perhaps? The quirkier and sparklier the better. You shimmer and shake under the shiny mirrored squares of a disco ball before dinner. You all sit down for a feast at your fantasy-filled dinner table, put on your silly masks and the moon masquerade begins.
