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.

REPORTER: Alyssa Brown

A recent chat with Aussie photographer Lara Hotz has us brimming with excitement over the gorgeous artsy space that is Studio Neon. Located in Sydney, this eclectic warehouse is equal parts artsy and modern. Lara photographed a wedding at Studio Neon recently and we couldn’t help but wonder if everything in Australia is as inherently cool as this spot.

From the old school speaker wall installation to the spattered paint floors, there’s a visual surprise everywhere you look at this studio. Exposed brick and neon art round out the combo of new and old that is so popular in Sydney design. Brilliant florist Merci Bouquet rocked the “any bright color goes” theme with neon hues throughout the studio. We couldn’t think of a more cheerful way to celebrate than with festive and colorful décor in a setting that’s so full of character.
