Palm Desert Wedding Style with Nick & Brenda at Palm Valley Country Club


                  This Wedding for Nick and Brenda at Palm Valley Country Club in Palm Desert Cal. had a touch of everything. It was emotional at times, crazy fun and especially cool because of the Bride and Groom. They even had a Giraffe, yes I said a giraffe...lol.  Everything started with an amazing ceremony on the edge of a golf course, then the guests were sent inside to a cocktail hour with a different twist on the photo booth idea featuring a hosted set with full lighting and a studio backdrop. The main room was set and ready as you can see above for the reception which began with Jazz and Rat Pack Style. After dinner the toasts and speeches were powerful to say the least in the absence of Nicks' Father who had passed. There was a place at the Family table for him and I couldn't help but feel like this was the perfect way to honor the memory and include him in the event. If you're planning a Wedding and are trying to find a way to connect a Family member, this was total class and is the way to do it. The dancing and fun went on from there ending with a sparkler lined send off to Their Honeymoon in Belize.
                 Every Bride and Groom plans for their Big Day in there own way, this fit them to a "T". I was so proud to be there, Thanks Balsamo's, Now go be Happily Ever After. :)
For everybody else, Please check out the Pic's below for Idea's.

Thursday In the Wine Country at Hammersky Vineyards with Kathy & Matthew!



              This was a couple who had style, class and were just so nice. They actually lifted up the people around them just by being themselves. Kathy and Matthew are from San Diego and their destination wedding was in full wine country style on a Thursday at Hammersky Vineyards. The ceremony was warm and personal, with an amazing view of rolling hills and Grape vines as full of grapes as I've ever seen them anywhere, (it's almost harvest time) The Bride came in to "Love me tender" by Nora Jones (So Cool). The Bride and Groom then went for pics and the guests were given the option of either wine tasting or a bar with signature cocktails. The Dinner this night was special, done by Chef Charlie and his team. After dinner we packed the guests into the barn for dancing with lots of 80's and 90's Hip Hop and RnB. This was one awesome Thursday, they should all be this way. Loved it! .... and now here are the details!

Back to The Grace Maralyn! with Zak and Ansley 9.14.13

The Grace Maralyn is a wonderful place for a Wedding.
           Zak and Ansley live in San Diego, They wanted a party with a Wedding attached....lol The ceremony was in the Garden at The Grace Maralyn in rural Atascadero, California. The style was Modern Romantic with a big mix of cool idea's from friends and Pinterest. They put together a team of vendors led by Terry and Lisa, the on-site coordinators from TGM. The guests were playing cool yard games during the cocktail hour and enjoyed beverages throughout the property. After pics the Bride and Groom joined the party with a Grand Entrance into a buffet meal prepared by McGee's Catering. The barn at TGM is a really great space which becomes the center for dancing later in the night. This was no exception, the dancing was off the hook and We stretched the music (new, old, everything) up to the last minute and ended with Queen's "Fat Bottom Girls".... lol ....awesome. Every Wedding has its style and this one was all about Ansley & Zak, We made some friends, had a blast and sent them on their way to Happily Ever After. Thanks to You Two and your Families, Loved it.

Jenae & Brandon Got Married! at The Holland Ranch Sep. 7th



                Jenae and Brandon had known eachother since the seventh grade and life gave them eachother for life. The Wedding was at Holland Ranch, one of the beautiful venues we love most. The main contact there is Jamie Strand and she rocks, if you want for your Big day what we want for every Bride..... "Fun with Style"...... Get ahold of her. The ceremony was on the lawn over looking the ranch with beautiful horses and a lake in the background. I always say every Bride has a minute, the time when all the planning, all the work, all the money becomes second to how she feels at exatly that minute. For Jenae it was when she looked at Brandon while he said his vows, a smile with tears that showed what it meant to her, it was just a moment very few of us that were there will forget. The Guests then headed up to the famous Barn at Holland to enjoy cocktails and finger food and then a wonderful Dinner. Plemmons catering and their crew were terrific, I Love the food they provide and they always have a smile on, simply put.. that's how it should be done. This was a Modern Country event and the creativity was over the top. very cool. Thank You Jenae and Brandon, ......... Nice

Haley and Corey Got Married at Cellar 360.






This is a pic of a pic ....lol I couldn't resist when I saw Ashley Blake's image ... awesome. 
Haley and Corey were so cool, so fun and had their day in the heart of Paso Robles wine country at The Beautiful Cellar 360. I know I've said it a hundred times but they had an incredible group of vendors who did everything to make this day go. It was very warm and inspiring to see the rolling grapes going as far as the eye could see while they said their vows. The cocktail hour was on the terrace in front of the tasting room for the winery, after which all of the guests walked down to the barrel rooms for the Reception. the Bride and Groom came in to huge applause and went into a Romantic first dance. Dinner followed with a musical performance By The Brides Brother that rivaled any I've seen at any event, hilarious speeches and then a full blown dance party that this DJ loved...lol If Your planning a wedding , be sure you check out the Vendor list included below, just outstanding.
