Intrigue Across America Tour 2024 - St Louis

Let the Light Shine In

Welcome to the fourth stop on our Intrigue Across America Tour, where we were transported to the captivating ambiance of Westwind Hills in St. Louis, MO. The venue encompassed an impressive 11,000 square feet, featuring 15-foot floor-to-ceiling arched windows and custom reclaimed white oak beams. As we explored this remarkable property, we were enchanted by the elegant design and abundant natural light that streamed through the expansive windows. It was truly a picturesque setting, ideal for fostering creativity and inspiration.

Day 1 - Wedding Sales Strategy & Event Design

Day one of the Wedding Sales Strategy & Event Design class was a total game-changer. The vibe in the room was electric from the get-go, with everyone pumped and ready to learn. Sarah kicked things off with her infectious energy and passion, setting the stage for an awesome day of learning and growth.

During the session, we really dug into the whole deal of crafting unforgettable experiences for couples, starting from square one all the way to the big finale. By the time the day wrapped up, we were all feeling pumped and armed with some seriously handy tools to not only draw in those high-end clients but also to boost our sales like never before. This class? Total game-changer for anyone in the wedding biz, serving up some fresh perspectives and aiming to take excellence to a whole new level.

*FUN FACT: Sarah stressed to THINK like a BIG BUSINESS. Take a page from the playbook of big-name companies, even if you're just getting started or running a small operation. It will change your mindset and others will see your potential.

Day 2 - Luxury Floral Installation Masterclass

Day two of the tour was an absolute feast for the senses. Attendees created a stunning 16-foot floral installation cascading down the towering cathedral windows. The vibrant blooms flowed gracefully, creating a mesmerizing backdrop that seemed to blend seamlessly with the natural beauty outside. But the magic didn't stop there; the installation continued its journey, weaving its way into a swirling ground installation that meandered along the ceremony aisle. It was a sight to behold, infusing the space with an enchanting aura that set the stage for an unforgettable event.

In another corner of the venue, each attendee had the opportunity to unleash their creativity and craft their own miniature circle masterpiece to hang alongside others in a collective display of artistry. The air buzzed with excitement as we delved into this hands-on activity, exchanging ideas and marveling at the diverse interpretations taking shape before our eyes. It was a beautiful reminder of the power of collaboration and community, as we came together to create something truly special.

Overall, the day brimmed with creativity, inspiration, and a generous dose of enchantment.

After day 2 wrapped, the Styled Shoots Across America photographers came in to photograph all of the beautiful florals and decor, along with the help of stunning models. Attendees of the workshops get full access to all professional photos once galleries are completed, which means hands were filled with flowers, minds with inspiration, and portfolios with photos!
