Speaker Series: Meet & Greet
Click on the icon for each discussion topic and learn a little bit about
our amazing speakers before you meet in person!
Did you know you still need to show proof of a negative COVID test (even if you're fully vaccinated) to visit Hawaii right now? Or what about asking the wedding band you hired to add your wedding venue as "additional insured"? Racking your brain to find the right moment to tell your mom you can't uphold the family tradition and wear her wedding dress because it's way too big? Don't even get us started on trying to figure out a custom cocktail for your wedding guests - what the heck are "bitters"?
Let's face it. It's easy to get lost in the million little details involved in every aspect of the wedding celebration. Luckily for you, LUIS asked some of his friends to help you out! As part of the "Speaker's Series" at With Love, LUIS, you'll be able to "Meet & Greet" top industry professionals that don't talk at you, but rather, engage in a dialogue with the audience.
Each Meet & Greet has limited seats available, so the group can stay small and intimate, giving speakers the ability to actually answer your every burning question. You'll have the chance to learn #ProTips that will blow your mind and partake in conversations centered on topics that are both fun and informative.
Get comfy, click on the icons for their bios, and get to know the Speakers, below!
Once you purchase your tickets, you'll receive a passcode to RSVP to the Meet & Greets of your choice. Attend one - or all four! Just make sure to secure your spot, as seating is limited.

If you've always wanted to wear your mother's wedding dress but could definitely do without the massive puff sleeves that reigned supreme in the 80's, or you've decided you're going the custom route, this Meet & Greet was made just for you!
Sarah's atelier specializes in custom wedding gowns and garment deconstruction and reconstruction.
She's a #PRO at 1) the art of taking something old and turning it into something new, be it a new age gown, veil, robe, handkerchief (or anything else you can think of!), and 2) making your dream dress a reality by custom designing it from scratch.
Learn about her "dress refresh" process, check out her previous work, and chat all about new designs, in person!
Bring your Mom and some tissues - this will be exciting, but she may get emotional <3
Couples Cocktail Curation Class

Start Time: 10:30AM
"Your guests will interact more with the bartender than any other vendor at your wedding. They'll have one entree, one dessert, but they'll have many drinks. Make sure they drink well."
- Sarah Murphy, Bar Magnolia
Bar service has always been a contributing factor in determining a memorable and successful event - especially for your wedding celebration! Beyond wine and beer, curated cocktails are taking a leading role as an experience all on their own.
Learn the basics on how to build a custom cocktail that will have your guests wanting more! Your personal story, garnishes, glass/stemware, and designer ice (yes, you read that correctly), are just a FEW of the things you'll need to consider.
She'll be the godsend that provides all the direction you need on where and how to start. Cheers!
Bring your other half! This is a great workshop you can both revisit when you're ready to try to concoct something together.

We are in Music City, right? Of course, LUIS had to touch on an integral part of any celebration... MUSIC!
Hosted by the editor of Northwest Florida Weddings Magazine, this Meet & Greet spotlights the importance of music at your wedding and how to navigate the best options for your celebration.
Are you on Team Live Band or Team DJ? How do you pick an out-of-the-box First Dance song? If you were to say "I Do" in Music City, what should you look for to get the most authentic Nashville music scene experience?
Get feedback from Linda Harper, a veteran Entertainment Consultant who manages events and books talent, PLUS from the talent themselves! Pop/Country artist, Lukas Scott, wrote a song to propose to his girlfriend (and it worked!). He has lots to say about the importance of music and the song that sealed the deal, "Mrs. Me".
Take notes on their top tips, best songs, approach for selecting a band/talent, and more!
Come one, come all! Music is a major part of the fabric that makes up Nashville.
Learning about the music scene while you're in Music City is such a treat!
