I was SO thrilled to receive these photos back from Meg, our photographer at the Maiedae Mixer. She did such an incredible job and we are so thankful she was able to hop onboard last minute to shoot our event!! Here is a glimpse at some of our very favorites:

We had SO many incredible vendors that helped make the Mixer possible:

Joni of Lay Baby Lay created the beautiful positive message flags that hung above our raffle and swag bag table and the gorgeous "You're Golden" backdrop for Smilebooth. 

The Lovable Foods team created the PERFECT menu for our evening. I had so many attendees come up to me and tell me how delicious the food was and it looked stunning too! All of their food was presented beautifully. We loved that their mission is "love your body, eat real food". 

Krista of Blue Eyed Yonder put together the beautiful "Golden" inspired seating area. I wish I could have taken all of the furniture home with me! It looked incredible in the space and really tied everything together. 

The local band MAYA, played live music all throughout the evening. I have to brag a little because it's my brothers band and they did a great job! It really set the entire atmosphere of the event. 

The beautiful Logan Woods did all of the floral design for the event. Oh my goodness, it was absolutely stunning! Her work is beautiful and it was such a pleasure working with her! 

Of course we couldn't do without Smilebooth, it was a huge success our first year and we had to have them back! A huge thanks to Mailchimp for sponsoring Smilebooth and making that happen for this years Mixer! 

As a new feature of the event we had "interactive" booths. These booths were sponsored by various small businesses and featured a fun DIY for our guests to do throughout the evening! We had a great round-up of projects. The Makers Summit/Indie Craft Parade had a hand-stamped tea towel booth, Our friend Katie of K-Teas featured her new handmade teas and let guests create their own teas!! (How awesome!?) The ladies that put on Indie Craft Experience here in ATL had a bracelet/hair accessory DIY and the beautiful gals of the new online blogger community Sparkle + Type had a "decorate your own name-tag" booth! It was so much fun and so awesome to see everyone making goodies. Of course, as a nod to our "Golden" theme we had a gold temporary tattoo booth. ;) It was so fun seeing everyone rock their gold tattoos that night!

I can't forget to mention our dress swap! We had all of our attendees bring a dress they no longer wanted so they could pick out a new dress to take home! Lulu*s contributed several dresses to our swap to help fill it in and I have to say it was a huge success. Free dress?? Yes please! 

Again, a HUGE thank you to Meg for capturing the evening! Be sure to check out more of her work here! Be sure to check back tomorrow for a post detailing our incredible swag bags and raffle gifts AND an awesome giveaway!! ;)
