We were stoked to set our communal table with our favorite minimalist artist Lorraine Pennington at her beautiful + inviting atelier in West Side Costa Mesa.

Here we enjoyed welcome drinks & mingling, delighted in the beauty of imperfection, shared a chef curated dining experience and—best of all—partook in the (rediscovered) art of conversation.

We had the best time soaking up the radiant vibes of The Sunlight House in Newport Beach. We were stoked to set our communal table “on location” at this photo + video design haven.

Here we enjoyed welcome drinks & mingling, became inspired by the surroundings, shared a curated dining experience and, best of all, partook in the (rediscovered) art of conversation.
