Regency Retreat

What an amazing, amazing weekend. We spent 3 and a half days engrossed in Regency splendor, attending workshops, and spending time with friends both new and old. Here are a few pictures from the weekend.

Beautiful pictures! You all looked lovely. Mrs Cartwrights tunic dress is glorious! And the ball images look dreamy. I wish I could have been there.

You all looked wonderful. Mrs Cartwright's tunic dress is glorious! And the images of the ball - I love the lighting there. I wish I could have seen that live.

I miss being out there, it was a magical three days. I do love that photo of Logan and I....and Mrs. Cartwright and you....quite lovely. You will be missed when you are gone.

you looked so lovely and I didn't realize you had taken a photo of me carrying Young Master Logan about. You will missed when you leave our society.
