On June 19, I was blessed to be able to attend The Atelier Collective Brunch hosted but none other than the amazing Jillian Harris! If you don’t know who Jillian is you are living under a huge rock!!!! Or you don’t know what she does…. Go to her Instagram now and start following her… seriously! You need to, her feed is absolutely stunning and she is absolutely real and raw and says it like it is and thats what I love about her and on top of that this brunch was an intimate time to meet her and its crazy how I am still processing everything that happened! I did a whole Vlog my whole experience on my Youtube Channel to see our encounter! You can watch it HERE!!!
The location of the event was at Ricarda’s Restaurant Toronto. This place was the perfect location to have a brunch for 100 women! I was blown away with how gorgeous it was. The floral arrangements that were around on the tables and on display were made by Rachel Aclingen with the help of Simply Beautiful Decor.
Like how incredibly gorgeous is this table setting and just the whole presentation. If I ever do a party I would love to be able to create one just like this one!
At the event, one of the amazing sponsors was Two Sisters Vineyards! They are from Niagara Falls and we got to sip on this wonderful rose that each one of us got to take one full bottle home! I was so excited! I could not believe how delicious that wine was!
The table that I sat with was filled with amazing ladies from surrounding Toronto areas. I loved that I got to meet Dana, Lauren, Tiffany and Jen! I had amazing conversations and I got to experience this once in a lifetime opportunity with these gorgeous and kind ladies!
These are the amazing ladies behind the Atelier Collective! They run and created the Atelier Collective Conference for the second year in a row! And this Brunch for the first time! From left to right is Angela & Taryn! I love what these ladies are doing for this community of women and I love what they bring to events like these and what they stand for! I am truly thankful to have been able to attend this!
They provided Elate Makeup where there were makeup artists on hand for you to get makeup touch ups done and the provided you with options to test out the makeup and if you liked it you could order it online which was really cool. That booth was really busy!
Another amazing part of the event was Peak Paper Co was there and she hand calligraphed a bunch of cute sayings that we all could keep. She had three set ones that you could choose from that she watercolored herself and/or if you wanted a custom one she would do it right then and there on the spot! Incredible!
The amazing woman of the hour! Jillian Harris herself sharing some wonderful brunch talk about everything to her life to what she gets to do. I absolutely love you Jillian and I strive to be on your level one day!
I was so incredibly excited to see Ashley there from Smash + Tess! I absolutely love her rompers and I was so excited when an email came out and I was a featured for her romp so hard/romp girl by showing my love by wearing her rompers! She was so lovely!
The food was absolutely incredible and there was so much of it! It was healthy and it was vegan and gluten free! I was so amazed by this event and still pinching myself for being able to go!
For all you ladies who loved my Pink Dress it is from Valencia Boutique here in Winnipeg MB. If you can get this dress I would it is absolutely stunning and so flatterling on many body shapes. I’ve linked similar down below!
This event, was everything that I hoped for and more! I am so incredibly lucky and blessed to have been able to go all by myself and enjoy a day with someone who I look on social media for a while now! Please enjoy that video that I have on my channel and make sure you give Dana a follow if you are from Toronto and need pictures she is amazing! xoxo, Leslie
