Guys! Our first DIY Wedding Workshop is LESS THAN A WEEK AWAY. I am so freakin’ pumped and scared and excited and anxious and so many other emotions! But the amazing Serena of Creative Ideation offered to do an awesome portrait session and Q&A with our first vendor host, CIAO NINA, and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you all. First you get to meet the insanely talented and creative lady behind CIAO NINA, and second you get to look at some seriously rockin’ portrait images. I am just totally in awe of Nina’s style. She rocks patterns, colors, flare, and her own accessories with so much finesse it’s insane.

If you haven’t bought your tickets yet for our first workshop, you can buy them here. Come meet Nina yourself and have her teach you how to create a beautiful hairpiece that you could wear in your wedding, or make your for bridesmaids or other embellished detailing!

Q: What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?

A: Independence Day is my favorite movie.


Q: When did you start making things and what was the first thing you made?

A: I always loved making things. I remember pretending to be sick in elementary school so I could stay home and watch craft shows on TV. It’s still so much fun for me to learn a new skill.

 Q: What’s next for you?

A: Adorning the heads of every stylish lady in the district and beyond. And continuing to show women who think they “can’t pull off hats” how great they can look and feel in one.

 Q: What can people expect from your workshop (vibe, energy, product, life-long friendship…)

A: A comfortable place to try your hand at a new skill. It is amazing to me how little credit some people give to their creative abilities.

 Q: Who’s your superhero?

A: Supergirl. My little sister and I were obsessed with the 1984 movie. We watched it as adults together not too long ago, and… Spoiler alert: It doesn’t hold up.
