The concept of Gowns and Gardens was born in the summer of 2021, when Kenisa Nunley wanted to have a birthday party that she could wear a gown to and enjoy nature. Out of that want the idea of Gowns and Gardens was birth. The birthday party was titled "Gowns and Gardens" and was held in the back yard of the historic Gamble House in Pasadena. It drew much excitement and attention from those who heard about it and those who saw it, passing by stopping to take pictures. The domain was purchased, but since covid continued to play out, the idea of a full production was put on hold.
In May of 2022, with much prayer, she embarked on producing the 1st full event.
August 2022, "Living Your Dream, Women’s Garden Summer Party", at Pickwick Gardens, Burbank. The event was a success with 45 excited attendees, 10 event partners, and 4 vendors!!!
In continuing in that momentum "Feminine, and Fun! Women’s Beach Day!" at Dockweiler Beach was held two weeks later.
In December 2022 Gowns and Gardens has gone on to produce "Building Your Legacy", pop-up, pink carpet event at the Faeriesty Showroom in Downtown Los Angeles with 80+ registrants. We are excited with the strides that have been made and even more excited for what is to come!
More good things to come!
