StarEvents has had our BEST year yet and we want to THANK our amazing CLIENTS for the inspiration, our VENDORS for all of their hard work and our FRIENDS/FAMILY for their support!  We have some EXCITING things going on in 2011 and we are THANKFUL to each and every one of you!  Enjoy your Thanksgiving and check out the awesome tablescapes below as inspiration for your own dinner table!


.::Katrina & Adam::.

Katrina and Adam really wanted to have an INTIMATE Ceremony but a LIVELY Reception. ..so we decided a TWO day wedding event would be perfect!

The Ceremony was held on Friday night at a private estate. A small gathering of family and friends watched as the couple exchanged their vows and planted a tree to symbolize their union.

A COUNTRY-CHIC reception was held the next evening at Historic Harlan Ranch. Guests dined at tables draped in pale yellow linens lined with burlap runners and topped with eclectic floral centerpieces. The 3-tier cake sat atop an antique dresser while clips of old movies where projected on a clothesline inspired movie screen.

.::Cassie & Nathaniel::.

From Day One, Cassie knew exactly what she wanted for her SPECIAL day and she and Nathaniel were great in the planning process.  Their wedding took place in the lovely front and backyard of Cassie’s grandmother “Billie”.  During our first site visit, the grounds were a LONG way from completion, but come wedding day, it was ENCHANTING!

The design was CLASSIC, clean, nature-inspired and romantic accented with navy, cream, white and mossy green.  My favorite part was the MILLION candles everywhere and the awesome glow they gave off as the sun set.  The finished look was STUNNING!!!

.::Barbara & John::.

We are finally coming up for air from the INTENSE fall wedding season and will be posting a BARRAGE of event posts for your viewing pleasure! 🙂

Today we are featuring a QUAINT and LOVELY fall themed backyard wedding.  Barbara and John are the sweetest couple and had a wedding full of love from their friends and family.  We had not done an Autumn inspired event for quite some time and since we had a lengthy Summer, it was nice to feel the charm of the season.  Fall leaves, pumpkins, hay, burlap, rustic wood, oranges, browns and rust were the centerpiece of this wedding.  And the dessert table by Frosted Cakery was to die for!!! Enjoy!

.::Lindsey & Scott::.

RUSTIC/MODERN is what we called the design for this wedding.  Lindsey had a fun color palate of BURNT ORANGE and EGGPLANT.  We inserted white to make it more modern and pheasant feathers and branches to make it more rustic.  It turned out to be everything we envisioned.  The backdrop was the beautiful Holland Park West with gorgeous waterfalls, palm trees. luscious green gardens and even a cave area.

The Bride was beautiful, the Groom was handsome and we had so much fun along the way!  There was nothing stopping the excitement and beauty of the day!  Enjoy the photos!

.::Niza & Jose::.

I LOVED this wedding and I LOVED this bride!  Aside from being absolutely GORGEOUS on the outside, Niza was one of the most LOVELY brides on the inside.  Although we had a short planning time frame…we were able to come up with the perfect FRESH, COLORFUL and CHIC wedding design for Niza and Jose.  Hot Pink, Lime Green, Marigold Yellow, Bright Orange and Mint Green popped against the STUNNING backdrop of  Wolf Lakes Park in the form of luscious flowers and whimsical lanterns.

Since it was a family affair, the KIDS AREA was a kaleidoscope of fun activities and sugary sweets.  There was also perfect touches of a Chocolate Fountain, Mariachi Band and sophisticated Lounge Area for all of the guests to enjoy.   It was all captured by the FAMOUS and ridiculously-talented photographer, Mariano Friginal.  Enjoy the photos!
