Earlier this fall, I was invited to join a group of women on a sunset cruise in Newport Harbor. The ladies from Beijos Events designed and styled the fall themed gathering for a wine tasting presented by Argaux coordinated by my friends at Art of Being Female. The story, photographed by Alison Bernier, is being featured on Style Me Pretty Living and I wanted to share it with you as well.
The evening was focused on a sommelier guided wine and cheese pairing from the talented duo from Argaux. Two young women, Arden and Margaux, with a love of cooking and wine partnered together to create a unique business with a wine club and intimate tastings. After meeting in college and recognizing their shared love of cooking and wine, the two went on to attend The International Culinary Center. As Certified Level III Sommeliers, they established Argaux after a few wine tastings for friends and family increased in demand and recognized the opportunity to pursue their passion. In addition to the customized tastings, they source and select wines for their online shop and Club Argaux.
The Duffy boat cruise couldn’t have been in a better location that night. With summer lingering long into fall, we enjoyed warm temperature and a gorgeous sunset as we puttered around Newport Harbor. The creative skills of Jacquelyn and Leah from Beijos Events made everything picture perfect – literally. No detail was overlooked from the selection of apricot and pink colored flowers to the cheese board arrangement, tablecloth and invites. Kristin from local boutique, Garage Collective, added a selection of unique finds, including pillows and tablecloth, from the shop to the decor. The creative effort by these ladies made our Voyager Rental Duffy absolutely beautiful.
My friends at the recently launched website, Art of Being Female, coordinated the evening with Argaux and Beijos Events. As a site dedicated to exploring the interests of women, the Ladies Wine Night was successful in introducing, sharing and supporting a like-minded community of creative local women.
