Once in a while we truly feel like GUESTS at one of our weddings because the family and friends are so WELCOMING.  This was one of them.  We had a blast at Whitney and Josh’s wedding!  The ceremony was held at the CAPTIVATING Janzen Residence with a gorgeous draped canopy and crystal chandelier as their alter and the reception was held at The Grand on Ten ballroom in downtown Fresno and was GLOWING with candles everywhere and a Tiffany blue hued lounge, luxurious linens, florals in shades of creams and whites and crystal table chandeliers and other beautiful vintage touches.  We used colors of creams, whites, Tiffany blue and chocolate brown.  The theme was a modern-vintage party with an OLD HOLLYWOOD feel.    The best part was how much love Whitney and Josh have for eachother.

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!!!

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!

My darling Indira turned TWO years old this month and nestled in between our BUSY regularly scheduled events, I had the pleasure of planning her birthday party!

Some parents get stressed out with birthday party planning, but I think…If you enjoy doing it, than GO FOR IT!  And one might think an event planner would get out of control with parties, but surprisingly, I VOWED to make it a simple, casual, backyard barbecue and SUCCEEDED!

This year was quite different from the Cupcake Party last year.  The colors were red, white and a teal blue and the kids enjoyed WATER FUN in the backyard (even in 105 degree HEAT) , the adults chowed down on barbecue food including tri-tip, chicken and potato salad, Indira gave away cute BEACHCOMBER bags as goodie bags to her guests and we had yummy desserts such as Sheri’s famous ice cream sandwiches, Nadia’s own Red Velvet Cupcakes and a Birthday Cake by Miss Jackie (a family friend).

A special thanks to Ruben J. for the photos!

Teddie loves Hydrangeas!  So it was only fitting that we design Teddie and Dom’s wedding around that beautifully colored, lacy flower…and Fig Garden Swim and Racquet Club was the perfect outdoor location for this light, classic design.

Crisp, white floor length linens draped each guest table and looked amazing set in the middle of the over-grown green foliage that surrounds Fig Garden. Various shades of blue were used in small touches throughout the design which picked up all of the colors in the Hydrangea centerpieces and bouquets nicely. We couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous evening and Teddie and Dom looked truly in love as they danced their first dance under the stars.
