I can’t say enough NICE things about Bianca and Justin.  You might remember Bianca’s sister’s wedding this past May.  We wish they had another sister so we would have an excuse to hang out with their family and friends again!

Anyhow, Bianca and Justin are definitely an unconventional couple.  They LOVED breaking the wedding RULES and we love that!  The final theme was INDUSTRIAL meets GOTH meets ROMANCE meets GLAMOUR meets WHIMSY…all in a BARN!!!

The Industrial was the awesome light bulbs hanging from the barn ceiling, the Goth was the black linens with black centerpieces, the Romance was the candles everywhere, the GLAMOUR was the draping, the crystals and the BEJEWELED bouquet made with vintage brooches , the WHIMSY was the “theater themed” concession stand cocktail area complete with a fun photo booth.  Everything was SO THEM and SO PERFECT!

There were quite a few memorable moments too…such as ANTS getting in the brides dress, a crazy-quick TURNING of the ceremony to the reception in a record 35 minutes and an upset officiant due to the couple forgetting their marriage license.  All of these occurrences made for a night we all will not forget!

Lastly, we would be wrong NOT praising the AMAZING team of vendors.  An event like this one could not be pulled off without some of the BEST people in the industry all coming together.  A complete list of vendors are listed below, but we want to give a special shout out to Jonathan at The Pantages Company for his production work, the team at Classic Catering who helped us with the turn and the fabulous food, Jennifer at Gala Ink for her stationery work and extra pair of hands, Morgan and Vinnie at Media Solutions for their awesome lighting installations, Mimi at Apropos for Flowers for the great centerpieces and lastly Mark Janzen, the amazing photographer who captured it all in photos and laughed at us when we pulled out the RAID when the ants attacked the bride…yes, prepared Wedding Planners even have Bug Spray in their kits!

Katie and Jake are such a cute couple!  And since they live in Utah…they are included in our recent group of long-distance, out-of-state couples.  We worked closely with the mother of the bride to create a red and black ROMANTIC setting with RED ROSES, BLACK LACE and SPARKLING CRYSTALS.

The ceremony was held at the Fresno California Temple and the reception was held Fort Washington Golf & Country Club which was a great backdrop for the fabulous food, gracious guests, distinct decor, perfect photo booth, celebratory candy table, and an overall festive fete!!!

They say ”Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”… but when combined with hot pink feathers, they are a 15 year old girl’s BFF!!!  And that’s just what we gave Vanessa for her Quinceanera at the Golden Palace Ballroom.

A room drenched in hot pink lighting was the perfect backdrop for Vanessa and her Court.  Tall centerpieces of crystal globes and multi-colored ostrich plumes were just the thing to take this event from ordinary to extraordinary.  Everyone cheered as Vanessa cut into her six tier, zebra inspired cake and danced the night away in celebration of Vanessa turning the BIG 1-5!
