If you weren’t able to make it to this event, but want to know more about our Vendor Socials, you’re in luck!

A new spin on networking

Our Vendor Social is a happy hour where event + creative entrepreneurs can take a night off, celebrate all of their hard work, and make quality connections. We want everyone to feel welcome while having a great time!

We strive to keep our events intimate and diverse to help foster quality connections; we limit the tickets by “category”, so you won’t be showing up to an event where everyone is a photographer, blogger, or web developer – and we always hope that each person takes home at least one new friend or valuable contact (but you’ll probably have more). 

All creatives + makers, entrepreneurs + start-ups, and wedding + event vendors are invited!

Each of our events is unique; we like to mix things up, have a great time, embrace new challenges, and keep it interesting! Some events feature beautiful, ornate decor while other Vendor Socials have more of a boho vibe – who knows what we’ll do next!

Wondering how our Vendor Socials are planned and executed?

We bring together a team of talented vendors, creatives, etc. and work together to create, curate, and host our events. We love to work with new people, let them show of their skills, and help their businesses grow!

No matter what the theme may be, the vibe is always positive and everyone is welcome!

SNACK on these goodies! SNACK by Tiffany is satisfying your sweet tooth!

Meet SNACK by Tiffany!

Our LA Vendor Social has sweet treats for you! Literally! SNACK by Tiffany will be providing goodies for our guests to snack on! SNACK by Tiffany is a home bakery where it’s always SNACK time! They offer a variety of sweets and treats, with delivery within LA and Orange County. They also provide consultations, set-up, and private tasting services! Tiffany started up her business in January 2017 and she’s been going strong since! Her customizable snack boxes are a adorable and delicious treat for friends, family & of course yourself.

Keep on scrolling to read all about SNACK by Tiffany and check out pics of her delicious work! If you’d like to try these bite-sized goodies out for yourself, join us on June 29th at The York Manor for our LA Vendor Social!

SNACK by Tiffany was birthed from a simple question: “What do you love to do?” I always knew that I loved to bake and was up to my elbows in flour and butter, even from a young age. My baking journey began in my mother’s kitchen and though my mother mostly whipped up banana bread and cheesecake, I was soon making her own ventures into the baking world. After many recipes, my endeavors soon led me to discover my baking philosophy: that sharing is indeed caring. I found that I took immense joy in crafting and sharing sweet treats.
 
After 10 years of requests from friends and family to open up my own bakery, SNACK by Tiffany was born––but not without the support and business savvy of an encouraging husband. ​ Today, SNACK is armed with its own renditions of banana bread and cheesecake, with brookies thrown in for good measure. The name itself came from the idea that everyone should enjoy a small bite of something sweet between meals––not to mention the fact that “snack” is also my favorite word. SNACK specializes in creating quality products using quality ingredients, and we are devoted to sharing the best of our kitchen joys!

It actually came from a friend, inspired by my favorite word: “snack.” It also comes from my baking philosophy that everyone should enjoy a small bite of something sweet, especially between meals. For me, it really is always snack time!

While I relish whipping up bowls of batter and creating cheesecake garnishes, what I love most about SNACK is working with customers to create the “perfect” order, one that is tailored to their needs and desires. Whether it’s for a wedding or just personal consumption, every box of SNACKs is fitted to the customer and I love every step of that process.

Any event that makes people feel special, with a little room for dessert!

A picture is worth a thousand words! Michelle Kyle Photography is capturing your special day and our LA Vendor Social!

Meet Michelle Kyle Photography!

Michelle Kyle Photography began two years ago when she took a leap of faith and left her full time job as a graphic designer to take on photography. Not only does she love wedding photography, but fashion, travel, and portrait photography as well! Michelle is all about capturing her clients in true moments of happiness and love. This talented lady will be capturing all the special moments at our LA Vendor Social at The York Manor! Come out and meet Michelle along with other rad LA creatives!

“All professionalism set aside I’m a big kid at heart and I want my couples to have fun and feel free to be them selves on any shoot!”

I was originally a graphic designer and I fell in love with Photography when I took some classes in college. After working behind a desk in graphic design and marketing for a few years, I realized that kinda of life style and work life wasn’t for me. While I working my full time job as a graphic designer I started 2nd shooting and assisting other professional wedding photographers on the weekends, and I LOVED IT! It didn’t take long for me to realize that I THIS is what I wanted to do, that photography (specifically wedding & portrait photography) was my passion. In 2013 I bought my first “professional camera” and started building my portfolio and my style. As I started to book some of my first clients, I finally got the guts to quit my desk job in 2015 and thus Michelle Kyle Photography was officially in business!

The true moments of love, laughter, and awe are my favorite, so you could say I love a good candid! The moments that most people don’t see and many forget that happen, but are the moments that put smiles on my clients faces when they get their photos back. To be apart of the whole experience is such a joy and a privilege!

I love weddings! But I also love fashion/editorial photography, portraits, dogs, and travel! I like to expand on my work by shooting more than just weddings, as I feel its a great way to get some different perspectives and grow creatively.

I love all things coffee and puppies!

LA Vendor Social | The York Manor | 06.29.17, 6:30-9:30pm

You’re cordially invited to join District Bliss at The York Manor for our LA Vendor Social!

Meet The York Manor!

The York Manor is a newly renovated historical landmark turned into an elegant event space! This venue is perfect for any private event, wedding, party, and even productions like photo shoots!

The York Manor is all about being a DIY kind of space meaning clients can expect flexibility here! The York Manor wants you to be able to create your event the way you want without many restrictions. As long as you’re obeying the law and respecting the space, this elegant venue gives you the foundation to bring your vision to life!

This unique venue will be the spot of our second LA Vendor Social & you do not want to miss out!

 

Extraordinary Living was launched over 6 years ago and The York Manor is one of the entities under the corporate umbrella. The York Manor was purchased back in 2013 and the team began plans to clean it up and preserve the 104 year old building. We received our official historical landmark plaque in December of 2015 and have been creating The York Manor as a community resource and elegant go to for private events. It was important for the right real estate developer to take over the manor because of the upkeep and repairs needed for a historical building. We wanted to preserve this large parcel of land as well. Given its size another developer who is not of or for the Highland Park community would have torn it down and built a modern building in its place. We wanted to keep the beauty, history and open space available for the public.

We wanted a neutral name that would welcome everyone through our doors and still convey the historic nature of the property. We had a competition amongst the staff to come up with a new name and our team brainstormed together. The result is The York Manor we have today.

The best part of the job is working with and creating each client’s special day. We have events from film productions to weddings to bar mitzvahs to conferences… No two days are the same and it brings us joy when a client has the event of their dreams.

My favorite story is one that is very common among our clients. The York Manor is a DIY kind of space. We don’t have many restrictions on vendors, time, or property layout… So my personal favorite moment is when a couple has been to see 5 or more places, including hotels and then they meet with us. We say yes to so many of their questions that were no’s in the other venues that a sense of relief washes over them and they smile knowing were are here to make their event be a smooth, easy and enjoyable planning experience. Our motto is, “Respect the space and obey the law.” We provide all the foundation elements so you can create your day the way you want.

We don’t play favorites…

Tell us about your team!

We are a team of people, including accounting, property management, maintenance and repair staff. The sales and marketing coordinator Stephen and I (COO) are responsible for the day to day management of the manor. We also have a support staff of site representatives that oversee each client’s event.

The York Manor,
