Vivian Darst | Adventure Elopement Photographer | Wild and In Love Photo

My business, Wild and In Love Photo, helps the community by showing you there is an option in the way you get married. The idea that an elopement is not a “real” wedding because it’s not the typical “traditional” way of getting married is so untrue! A wedding day is when two people say their vows, commit to each other, and have a day that is important to them. Elopement couples will have a more intentional wedding day that is truly focused on their love and connection instead of a performance for 100+ guests and their expectations. Read more>>

Chunling Li | Martial arts and yoga

Sports is the most important part of our lives, aside from food and sleep. Baguazhang (a Chinese martial art) is the best way to maintain longevity. Baguazhang belongs to the internal kungfu, similar to Tai Chi, but faster than Tai Chi. Baguazhang is safe and has no age limit. It includes form, meditation, and actual combat. We can make our body and mind healthier by practicing Baguazhang. Heal our souls and comfort our hearts. Make our lives easier and happier. At the same time, we can make like-minded friends.

Jordyn Tourville Hernandez | Spiritual Creator & Artist

My Hand Crafted Healing Talisman are created with pure intent and intuition. I am of Love and I am of Light. I speak positive affirmations and put both healing and guiding energy into these Talisman as I am creating them. I believe those who are ready for such a spiritual journey would resonate with what I create. Every soul needs something different to help assist them during an awakening journey. It fills my soul with purpose to know I can create something from my heart and another soul resonates with it and it helps them resonate with their own personal journey of growth in the Light.

Tyler Johnson | Mental Skills Coach

My personal mission is to help normalize mental skills training in sports and education. After being diagnosed with anxiety and depression a few years after my experience as a division one student-athlete, I was in search of methods that didn’t require a pharmacy. My journey led me to pivot from working in professional sports to working with coaches and student-athletes on mental skills, leadership and personal development. Read more>>
