An integral part of our bonding experience, Thanksgiving Point Golf Club was carefully chosen with our unique event in mind.

Thanksgiving Point Golf Club

Surrounded by incredible natural landscape lies a desert retreat of the finest caliber. A championship course, Thanksgiving Point Golf Club is the largest golf club in Utah. This Johnny Miller Signature Golf Club cradles the most spectacular gardens in Utah, creatively using the Lehi natural mountain desert landscape to enhance the overall ambiance for all who visit.

Our event will take place in The Great Room, which is a premier event venue in Utah – a classic, elegant ballroom located on the top floor of Thanksgiving Point’s stately clubhouse. A wall of french doors provides panoramic views of an immaculately landscaped golf course surrounded by native terrain and majestic mountains and opens to a huge private outdoor terrace. Our guests will enjoy breathtaking views from the Great Room and patio which features a perfect backdrop for incredible photographs.

The clubhouse itself is a stunning structure which compliments the backdrop perfectly. The incredible two-story foyer is as dramatic as it is inviting. Our event attendees will enjoy every area of the clubhouse. Plenty of intimate seating areas invite small group gatherings. We will have full access at all hours to meet, socialize and create bonding memories as lasting friendships are forged.


Testimonials from our Gatherring Instagram Workshop & Retreat in Waco, 2018


Kelly Ballard @citygirlmeetsfarmboy

The Design Twins have something special about them. I knew this before I personally met them. But when I walked in the room for The Gathering Workshop and watched their faces light up, I knew I was in for something unique.  The training was filled with amazing help and hints for my Instagram journey. But more importantly it was filled with wonderful moments of self reflection and encouragement. The entire trip was based on honoring one’s authentic self. Growing, learning, sharing your gifts – authentically.  

The Twins made you feel like no matter your background or experience, you are capable of being successful and they believe in you. I left feeling so much my confident and gained true friendships. Since the moment we left, all the women there have been asking when we can get together again – it was that fun!  I literally have been counting down the days until their next workshop. I wouldn’t miss it!  – Kelly


Brandy Bell @sobellandco

When I first signed up for the workshop with Julie and Jodie I was under the impression that I would be learning about Instagram. Oh how wrong I was. Did I learn about Instagram? Absolutely.. tons and tons. But what I didn’t expect to learn about was the value I had as an influencer. I didn’t expect to learn so much about what I had to offer to my community. I didn’t expect to form lifelong relationships with Julie and Jodie and all of the amazing ladies I met there. It wasn’t just my Instagram feed that Julie and Jodie had an impact on. They made a permanent impact on who I am as a person. And I can’t wait to go to another conference to grow even more.  – Brandy


Jessica Noble @thecobblershoponconcord

Jodie and Julie’s workshop & retreat gave me clarity and information that I couldn’t have gotten any other way. It was all relevant to Instagram but also building a brand or business in general. What was particularly useful were the relationships formed and the open and honest conversations we all had. Julie and Jodie also took the time to personally talk and connect with every person there which just meant the world to all of us.  – Jess

Serena Patterson @kingmanfarmhouse

I attended The Design Twins workshop because I wanted to expand my knowledge and build my business using Instagram. Those two things were accomplished but so much more was gained!! Friendships were made and stories of struggle and faith were shared. I left with my heart bursting at the seams because I knew that every single person that attended was meant to be there and we were all connected for a purpose. This is the perfect opportunity to gain knowledge from women who are paving the way and who are so graciously sharing their wisdom!! And you get to take away some incredible friendships and memories along with your new found knowledge!!  – Serena

Natasha Young @vintagethreshold

Not only did I learn so much from Jodie and Julie about IG that I would have NEVER known, but they are just the most kind, generous, and interesting souls. And all the other women there, some with 30k followers and some who didn’t know anything about Insta, all came together and bonded over our shared experiences and our differences. I am so glad I took that leap of faith. It paid off more than I could have imagined. PS I’ve doubled my followers in 3 months. Thanks Jodie and Julie xoxo  – Natasha
