Are you ready? Because this is the team at Life Design Event Planning and they’re wild and energetic and absolutely fabulous. Seriously, I had the BEST time photographing them at Hotel Adeline last week! We wandered around, we took a ride on the luggage cart, we twerked and we sang Taylor Swift songs. All the ingredients to a perfect shoot!
This lovely Phoenician is Cicely, the owner of Life Design Events and all around awesome human! So of COURSE I had to interview her for today! Enjoy!

Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
