When Cammie from Epicure Catering reached out to me asking if I would be available to photograph this dinner it was truly an honor. The Birds of a Feather dinner began last year and the idea is to celebrate women in the food and beverage industry in Traverse City. So female chefs, servers, bartenders, designers, managers, and more come together to put on a multi-course menu for 60+ guests. The dinner was hosted at one of my very favorite TC spots, The Little Fleet. The menu featured a passed appetizer from Katy Viswat of 7 Monks, an appetizer course from Kristen Karam of K2 Edibles, a salad course from Becky Tranchell of Rose & Fern Cafe, the main course by the season 16 winner of Hell’s Kitchen, Kim Ryan, and the dessert course by Becca Snook of Alliance. Unique cocktails were created by a number of female bartenders, staff members, and owners of local restaurants. The design concept and decor came to life thanks to Darling Botanical and the entire event was supported by a number of other amazing hardworking women. A portion of the proceeds even went to the Women’s Resource Center. It was truly a pleasure to be a part of this event. Stay connected via a new FB group for Northern Michigan Women in Hospitality.
Happy Monday! Last week I went to Petoskey to meet up with a group of awesome women! Savannah is the face behind Nakina Artistry, soon to become Nakina & Ko. She creates magic with hair and makeup, but she also has big plans for a rebrand which will include more lifestyle content in the future. You’ll just have to follow along with Sav to stay in the loop! ;)
Cedar Creek Interiors has moved from Traverse City to Elk Rapids and their new store front and design studio is absolutely gorgeous. Kim from Cedar Creek and Deb from LaLa Projects asked me to help capture the new space for their website and it was my pleasure. Here are a few shots from a great afternoon spent oogling beautiful home goods!
Exciting news over here! We are currently rebranding with our friend and talented designer, Erin Waineo. We have come to the conclusion that there will never really be a perfect time to officially launch everything, so we have started with our website and FB page, but the new look will really come together over the next month or so as we update our business cards, PDFs, packaging, etc. We are super excited about the new look Erin has created for us, and we think (fingers crossed) it gives the brand a more grown up style!
