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!

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!

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!!!

David is a DOLL and we had a great time planning his first birthday party!  We spent lots of time with his mother, Maureen,  getting each detail just right for this big boy’s first birthday celebration.

The theme was JUNGLE ANIMALS and there was no shortage of fun activities for all of the guests to enjoy.  The fete was held at Grand Occasions and he was lucky enough to have a face painter, bounce house, DJ, craft station, coloring station, candy table, cookie decorating, floor play, cupcakes by Frosted Cakery, animal masks and pin-the-tail-on-the-monkey.  Everyone had a blast!!!

Just like Candy

We have been getting SO many requests for candy and dessert tables lately and although it is important that the goodies are delicious, I think the presentation is at least 90% of it.

I have been DYING over Amy Atlas and her beautiful displays.  Visit her website here to see more!
