Event Recap :: Dance on the Falls Bridge 2015

This past September we produced one of our largest events, the Dance on the Falls Bridge. The non-profit East Falls Development Corporation hired us to execute the 5th year of the fundraising event. We were tasked with increasing attendance, increasing profit margins, and making the event regionally recognized. With our non-traditional approach to marketing and event production we were able to meet all goals set forth by the client then some, including selling out tickets!

Throughout the planning process and execution of the event we were able to showcase our logistical skills. While we love weddings, sometimes it’s fun to dig into the details and geek out over logistics — timelines, floor plans, area maps, drop-off schedules, and more! A 1400-person dance on a bridge that is only shut down a few hours before and after the event was the perfect opportunity to put those skills to the test, and pull off a super fun event!

Upcoming Event :: Calligraphy Brunch

You guys, it has been too long since we did a workshop! We are super psyched to host this Calligraphy Brunch we're hosting with Lindsey of The Hive Studio! It'll be at the Powel House in Philly from 11a–2p on Sunday, July 19. Purchase tickets here.

Lindsey will teach foundational calligraphy skills, including the anatomy of the pen and how to hold it, dipping ink, and scribing the alphabet while you sip sangria and munch on light fare. You'll start with lots of practice!

During the second half of the workshop, you'll put your skills to use by creating your very own 8x10" calligraphy art, using the quote or short phrase of your choice — the perfect inspiration piece for your studio, a sweet love note for your honey, or a bridesmaid gift for your bestie.

Each student will receive The Hive Studio Calligraphy Kit to use during class & take home to practice — you don't need to bring a thing!

Included with your ticket:

  • The Hive Studio calligraphy kit 
    • 2 nibs
    • nib holder
    • ink well and black ink
    • tube of gouache paint to mix your own ink
    • pipette
    • notepad for practicing

    • alphabet sheet
    • sample phrases sheet
    • resources sheet
  • Three hours of calligraphy instruction
  • Guidance in creating your own 8x10" calligraphy art
  • A frame for your art — so it's ready to hang or gift!
  • Light bites and summer sangria
