Sable & Gray is a stationery and paper goods company located in Traverse City, Michigan. They specialize in custom wedding invitations featuring hand-painted watercolors and hand-drawn designs. We find the inspiration for our designs in everything from the bride's bouquet to the architectural details of her ceremony location. 

We are excited to have Kristin teaching a watercolor calligraphy session at this La Petite Bloom, complete with demos, floral sketches for you to paint in with watercolor, all your supplies, and ample time to practice illustration and lettering.

Ashley has been a storyteller from a young age.  When she discovered photography, she discovered how to tell stories in an incredibly stunning way and was hooked. Based in the midwest, Ashley is primarily a wedding and portrait photographer and loves shooting with her film camera as much as possible. When she is not photographing weddings or running the Bloom Workshop which she co-founded, you can find her at home with her husband and two small boys. She is a wine and food enthusiast and enjoys traveling, cooking, eating and exploring new cities.

Ashley will be giving photo tips and tricks, as well as teaching attendees how to take and edit the best possible photos on their phones. She will also be taking each guest's headshot!

Bloom believes that flowers are most beautiful in their natural state.  When combined with other blooms in a customized palette, color and texture create a distinctive design that exudes the feeling you wish to create.  BLOOM sources flowers from only the finest growers, sourcing as many flowers as possible locally and domestically including our own specialty cutting gardens. Hand selected from the most exceptional varieties, our blooms will be sure to please. 

We are welcoming Jennifer back to teach the floral arranging class of our workshop, where guests will get to see a live demo, choose their blooms at our flower bar, then create their own petite arrangement.
