May NACE Meeting: A Pop Up Styled Shoot

NACE is an organization for event industry professionals and we are fortunate enough to belong to such an amazing group of talented people. In May, Dana had the honor of planning the NACE meeting along side Jennifer Buenviaje of Makeup for Your Day. The event was held at The Stockroom in Downtown Raleigh. 

During the meeting, our friends at Southern Bride and Groom and Weddings Magazine participated in a panel. They gave their insight on PR Strategies and spoke about the importance of styled shoots in the industry. A styled shoot brings vendors of all types together to display exactly what they can offer clients. Styled shoots can be published in magazines, blogs and even on social media. This is a great way for vendors to connect with one another and network their businesses. 

After the panel, the attendees were split up into six teams and participated in a pop up styled shoot. Each team had a box which they could fill with props to use during the shoot and was given a theme of either Bohemian, Romantic or High Drama. When teams arrived at The Glassbox they found models to choose from and a blank table. The teams had everything they could want to use including linens, flower arrangements, vases and much more. The teams had 10 minutes from the time that their team number was called to style the table and then they had 10 minutes to shoot it. We were so impressed with all of the teams. It tools pure talent and team work to create these beautiful designs in 10 minutes.  Thank you to everyone who participated in the NACE meeting and thank you to our vendors who donated to our meeting!
