Wedding Planning for the Modern Bride

by

I recently attended an ISES workshop help on “Wedding Planning for the Modern Bride!” This event and others like it, help all of us to stay on top of what is up and coming in weddings and events this year. I will be blogging more about the “Top Twelve trends of 2012”, but let’s start with my love affair with the innovative dishes that I enjoyed with my table mates! These two topped our favorites list: oven roasted eggplant tart with wild mushroom reduction and banana caramel cheesecake! Thanks to all those who made this event possible. Classic Party Rentals, Events By First Rose, Boka Event Florals, BBJ Linen, Honeymoon Sweets, & Let them Eat Cake, as well as Sandy, and the staff at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa.

Looking forward to sharing the “Top Twelve trends for 2012” with you soon!

The Knot Cocktails & Connections Event!

by

We had the pleasure of designing The Knot Cocktails & Connections Event on Thursday, September 15, 2011. We loved creating the “Green Glam” theme to showcase how an event can be modern with a touch of urban rust!  Bentley Project’s historical building was the perfect backdrop for the eco-chic cocktail party.  Our favorite highlights included the pairing of succulents with eclectic urban glass and bricks, the sumptuous spicy organic chocolate and champagne bar, the welcome flower aroma mist bar, the photo lounge with lush couches and a fabulous menu created from foods provided by local/sustainable purveyors … mouthwatering favorites included the poblano fries and chimayo braised pork sliders with lavender and spearmint yogurt! A special thank you to all of the vendors and raffle prize donors who participated: American Valet, Atlasta Catering, Bentley Projects, Butterfly Petals, Encore Creative, Envelope Envy, Got You Covered, Lotus Wei, MFS Event Technology, Pour Masters, Rust and Lace, Image-Industry Photography, Wei of Chocolate, Y Knot Party Rentals, Crate & Barrel, FireSky Resort & Spa, The Herb Box, Scottsdale Resort & Conference Center, and Seasons 52.

Michael & Maria ~ A Tuscan Inspired Wedding

by

It’s not very often that you get to plan a wedding for one of your siblings, so I was extremely honored when my brother and future sister-in-law asked me to plan their March wedding. We had two months to put together Michael and Maria’s Tuscan inspired wedding with touches of purples, greys, silver and cream. Choosing the venue was of high priority – I couldn’t believe their dream venue, Villa Siena, was available on their desired date! Once the venue was selected the rest of the wedding details fell smoothly into place . . . Jacque at EnDearing Floral created beautiful arrangements incorporating purple and white hydrangeas, stock, calla lilies, roses and dusty miller (giving hints of silver that Maria was looking for). Guests couldn’t stop raving about the braised beef short ribs catered by Santa Barbara Catering and the flavorful and moist wedding cake made by Brian at My Goodness Cakes. From start to finish the wedding incorporated the couple’s Irish and Guatemalan cultures. Maria couldn’t have looked more beautiful walking down the aisle to a guitar version of Andrea Bocelli’s song “Time to Say Goodbye”. During the candle lighting ceremony the Bride and Groom honored each of their mothers with roses that had personalized notes attached; it was such a sweet moment. Guests kept their swing on until the very end of the night when Michael and Maria made their getaway through a tunnel of beautiful glistening sparklers . . .
