Featured Real Wedding *Leana & John*

We were honored to coordinate and be a part of Leana & John's wedding day! The ceremony took place Saturday, December 27, 2014 at Mission Concepcion. Cocktails, Dinner and the celebration followed at The Pearl Stable. As guests arrived, they were greeted with appetizers, cocktails and a mariachi band. After cocktail hour, guests found their seats inside the ballroom, which had Christmas music playing softly in the background. The couple incorporated unique details in their wedding. Their guestbook was made up of individual quilt squares that guests signed a personal message on, which will be sewed together to create their wedding guestbook quilt. The table numbers were empty wine bottles with a personalized label. Praline favors were set at each guest place setting. Children activities included coloring books and Christmas tree seeds that can be planted after the event. 

Participating vendors included: Catering and bar service provided by El Jarro de Arturo, Cakes created by Sweet Traditions, Linens provided by Great Event Rentals, Floral Designs created by Ambiance Floral & Event Designs, Mariachi Band by Mariachi Mexica, DJ Entertainment by Magic Productions, Photography by Pablo & Britt Photography, Videography by Steven Salas, Transportation by AAA Limo, Charter and Taxi, Hair and Makeup by Twirl Salon.

Featured Real Wedding *Lynsey & James*

We were honored to coordinate Lynsey and James' wedding day! 
It was a beautiful celebration that took place on December 20, 2014 at St. Peter's Catholic Church & The Cana Ballroom. As guests arrived into the reception space, they placed gifts underneath the Christmas tree, instead of a traditional gift table. The guest book was a letter "J" for Janysek, their last name. A unique feature was vintage wedding pictures and items from past family generations, which was displayed on the piano. 

Participating Vendors included: Bar Service by Cocktails, Cakes by Malinalli Sweet Swirls, Barbecue Dinner by Riverside Catering, Linens by Legendary Linens, Floral Designs by Evember Floral & Event Designs, DJ Entertainment by Four Star DJ Ryan Schroeder, Photography by Lauren Rathbun, Videography by Jordan Bunch Productions, Hair & Makeup by Chairish The Day, Transportation by A First Class Limo.
