Indivisible: The Wedding Give-Back Project Benefitting the ACLU

Happy 2017 – I know I’ve been lagging on my blogging game, but today I am excited to share this blog post, to promote this project.  :) In a divided climate, we would like to do something that bring people together. These words I used when sharing on Facebook earlier this morning came from a conversation I had with my bridal client last year. I said I feel that we are all doing our best in our spheres of influence to make the world a better place, and we do what we can! Please share for anyone who may be interested in this beautiful elopement package where the proceeds go to ACLU. With all these passionate and talented vendors, there’s no doubt it’ll be a beautiful event celebrating two people in love  As individuals, it’s harder to make a difference, but when we come together, we can create something beautiful and raise money in order to support civil and equal rights.

Here at Skyla Arts, we had our first annual team retreat and we shared our personal/professional goals and values, and also did workshops to always improve on our skills and customer service. One of our group goals was to consume less, share more, and support each other in doing so – it matches our personal values of not wasting and protecting the environment. There are lots of cosmetic brands and hair products we can use and buy, but we are hoping to be more resourceful and thoughtful.  While we do have a lot of products we have to buy and invest in for our jobs, but at the same time, we try to do our best to reduce our carbon footprints. At the end of the day, we are in the service industry for a reason – we want to use beauty to lift others up on their special occasion. And to that, we look forward to continue servicing our wonderful clients in 2017 + onwards :)

P.S. Last year I had the privilege to work on 2 City Hall elopements and here is the lovely Tracy & Evan shot by Chung li!

Please please share & pass it on :) Below is the info and the full list of vendors participating in this project!

We invite you to be married, celebrate your union, and support civil and equal rights in the process. This is a completely not for profit offering. Read on for details!

As individuals, creatives and business owners in the wedding industry, we believe in celebrating love in ALL its many forms. We know that everyone has their own unique love story that speaks to their personal journey and there are many who may have had to face adversity along the way. Love is the common thread that binds us all together. Love sees beyond our differences.

We have been inspired to help tell those diverse and perhaps less represented love stories. We want to share and celebrate YOUR unique story and also give back in the process. We’ve teamed up with an amazing group of top wedding industry professionals to offer a luxury Elopement Wedding Experience valued at over $15,000 at an exclusive discounted rate of $6,000, with  100% of the proceeds  to be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union.
