SEE Sessions

Last February I had the opportunity to attend SEE Sessions in Nashville, with Jessica Sloane and Jessica Lorren. I had an amazing time and was happy to get to stay in the cutest AIRBNB with Erin McGinn, Lindsey Zamora, Meagan Hudak, Lisa Molett and Anniee Adams. We had the best time staying up telling ridiculously funny stories and getting to know each other! I first was instantly intrigued by SEE Sessions because it was the first of it's kind; a true hands-on styling workshop that offered education on business and branding. I truly admired Jessica Sloane's work and aesthetic and knew her brand was one I would be eager to learn from. I am so happy I took the plunge!
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed learning from the photographer's point-of-view. Jessica Lorren was a great teacher and made it really easy for the stylist to understand where her head is while working an event or editorial. I could have watched both Jessica and Jessica work for days, and seeing how they interact was well worth my treck from South Alabama.  Working with other vendors is one of my favorite aspects of weddings, so refining that interaction is really important to me. I feel lucky to have learned from both of them and am constantly reminded to keep redefining what it is my company and brand stand for. If you are considering going to the next SEE Sessions, I would definitely do it! It was my favorite workshop experience yet. 
Below are a few of my favorite shots from SEE Sessions feature on Wedding Sparrow. Shot by Jessica Lorren and styled by Jessica Sloane. {See all vendors in WS post}

Pursue the Workshop

Today's post is merely to brag on a friend of mine. It is Kylie's birthday week and I thought this would be the perfect time to introduce y'all to her, her work, her passion, and her latest venture


Kylie is such a creative and driven woman, and I am thrilled to be a small part in Pursue the Workshop. I know anything she puts her heart on is going to be amazing! Pursue will take place on April 28th and 29th of this year, and I am counting down the days! I can't wait to learn from so many of my inspirations, Ashley Brooke Designs, Rhi of Hey Gorgeous Events, Ashley of Lemon and Lavender, Whitney English, Ashley of Fancy Ashley and Melissa of Best Friends for Frosting. WOW! What a list of ladies. Not to mention, all the creative entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs who have already gotten their tickets!

The Workshop will be held at The Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas, Texas. This workshop is perfect for those who have all their business ideas and are ready to take action OR those who are itching to get into a creative career and want to learn how others have made it happen! It hasn't been the easiest year but it has been SO fun creating Victoria Austin Designs. I know attending Pursue will give me that extra push to continue to grow BETTER NOT BIGGER. 


Join me with some champagne as I celebrate Kylie's Birthday Week and be sure to check out Pursue the Workshop and get yo' tickets before the last ones are gone! xo
