The H&L team kicked off the new year with our first ever Honey and Lavender Events retreat at our headquarters in Old Town Alexandria, The Loop, and it was so good on so many levels.

For Maya, it ticked off a longstanding goal she had as an entrepreneur. From the start she has always envisioned building a great team, and bringing that team together for fun, community, and ways to improve what we do best – create wonderful experiences for our clients!

The retreat was also a time of reflection, planning, and excitement for everything we already have on our calendar for the year.

We are so grateful to NX Photography capturing these photos at our branding session!

Most of the members of our awesome team. We missed seeing (in person) Juliet, Darcy, and Arlene!

H&L is so fortunate to have a great working space – a private office that can fit, comfortably, four people (great for team brainstorm sessions, and for client and vendor meetings)!

Meet Elise. She started as an intern 1.5 years ago and is now one of our Associates.

Meet Mari. She is one of our contractors and assists Maya on weddings and private events.


Meet Christina. She is another one of our contractors and works Wedding Management weddings and private events.


H&L always brings the party!

One of the team building exercises we all did was everyone completed a Strengths Finder test so we could see everyone’s strengths and how we could all complement these strengths, internally, and with clients.

We also used this opportunity to take photos of new products from our e-commerce shop!

So thrilled to to be selling this yummy candle.

Branding photo sessions are so fun. Anything for social – amiright?!

Our stressed out faces.
Our scheduling and coordinating game faces.

Cheers to a wonderful first H&L retreat. Huge thanks to my amazing team for actively participating in the day-long retreat and for helping make H&L the best it can be.
