When winter finally gets around to easing up, everyone wants a solid way to transition into warmer seasons. All us adventurers and romantics want is simply a cozy party with friends, possibly outdoors (and a good drink). That’s where the Tequila vs. Mezcal Party comes in like a saving grace.

Such a celebration of agave is well overdue, and it took Layered Vintage partnering up with The Gold Leaf Project to make it happen. The festivities took place in San Diego and the Venue Report was lucky enough to attend. We had an absolute blast and wanted a few more details on how it all came to be. So we scooped an interview with Jill of Layered Vintage and Aly who coordinated the whole thing.

Known for its incredible art and music scene, unforgettable southern hospitality, and obsession with its football team, Atlanta is easily one of the most entertaining cities south of the Mason Dixon Line. Making it even cooler, quite a few of the industrial digs around town have been revamped into giant, open, light-filled warehouse studios and event venues.

Designed by a photographer with a serious love for perfectly lit spaces, Ambient Plus is just that kind of warehouse venue. Walls of giant windows line the white brick walls framing the room, while rustic wood floors anchor the soaring ceilings. And though any wedding would certainly transform this space into something interesting, this bride crushes it in her coral tulle gown and bold blue hair.

REPORTER: Katie David Bush

“To all the ladies in the place with style and grace….”  If the month of May means pops of pastels, placin’ bets on ponies and raising a little hell with a beveled bourbon highball in hand…  all the while cocking your chic chapeau of course, this #BirthdayBucketList is for you. We’ve been chomping at the bit to put this gamblin’ gathering at the top of our #BirthdayBucketList but we figured in this case, slow and steady would win the race.

We wanted to unearth an experience worthy of your group of gorgeous gals where tradition took a bit of a turn… you didn’t think we’d be all big hats and mint juleps did ya? (Not to worry, both of these beautiful traditions remain solidly a part of this story) For this bucket list you’ll still worship at the alter of the Churchill Downs but your “Old Kentucky Home” is a decidedly more modern, chic and art-filled after party at relative new kid on the block, 21c Museum Hotel Louisville.

So gather your favorite guys and gals, grab those fabulous fascinators and head to Louisville to host a bourbon-filled bluegrass bash at the Derby and 21c – our cards are on the table and baby, they’re just showing hearts.

If you’re like us as soon as March 1st hits, you’re updating your spring wardrobe with pastels and pops of neon – investing in your newest pair of festival lace up sandals, a bikini (or two), arranging pretty blooms allll over your house, dusting off that bicycle and planning beach getaways with your bests. With spring always comes a beautiful reinvention, the shedding of winter coats & heavy fabrics for gauzy prints and caftans, trading comfort food for juicy and colorful fresh fruits and vegetables now in season. Indoor takeout (we’ll never give up Netflix & chill no matter the season) for outdoor farmer’s markets and best of all, welcoming that that big ol’ dose of Vitamin D we’ve all been craving so desperately!

Skylines have always kickstarted our hearts. At any time, they stun—either a lordly beacon to inform your place in daylight or a twinkling assemblage of man-made stars in moonlight. They’re collections of monuments, archived with the weathered dings of history. They’re robust, sparkling mountains of glass, steel, brick, and plaster that you can live in, learn in, work in, or take charge of interests in. They’re beautiful, astounding panoramas of boundless architecture.
