Kaleidoscope Inn with Nicole & Ben and Disney, Big & Crazy!

                               We went back to Kaleidoscope this week with Ben and Nicole. They had that "thing", the vibe that we love to see from our Bride & Groom at any Wedding. It comes from a truly well matched, well loved couple finally seeing what all the time, money and work ads up to. Over 250 guests heaped the Love on them all night, gotta say it, they had the day they wanted. The Ceremony was in the Gardens at Kaleidoscope Inn in Nipomo, Cal. and was beautiful. A warm day with a breeze, perfect. The guests had cocktails and fun in the courtyard and then returned to the gardens where all 250+ we're seated for dinner. Afterwards, the stuff, all the dancing and all the craziness went right up to the last minute with a big send off at the front of the Victorian. I love mixing for a group that gives you back this kind of energy, Once again I'll say it, their team of vendors made a huge difference! Here are all the details......
Thank You To Nicole & Ben, Now go do the "Happily Ever After" :)

The Venue : Kaleidoscope Inn, Central Coast, Cal.
A Victorian B&B with remarkable gardens and a very warm personal vibe. This was big group and the crew from The venue did a great job, Thanks to Carolayne, Kevin and Kaitlin.

The food matters! I've worked every kind of event with this company and they're always really good. This time they out-did themselves, great service, great food and the staff was just On It. We look for the little things and refer people that go a little further for the client, they rocked it.
The Photography : Lynne Krizik
   Lynne and her Uber team were great, we really liked the easy going style and how they do the "Just shoot it" style. Can't wait to see the images.

        Jonathan is one of the rising stars we've been lucky enough to get to know. A very easy to work with Pro who's work is stunning.

A good videographer is worth every dollar and this is s great one, book him!

"Fun with Style" and Wine! Elyse & Evan at Robert Hall Winery 6.29


 Robert Hall Winery, is with out a doubt one of the best places to have A Wedding on our Central Coast. When the Fagundes family met us at The CCB wedding fair, they were just awesome. Lots of Italian Family Fun was on the way. Elyse and Evan wanted to have "The Day" and did they ever get it. Great Food, lots of wine and a packed dance floor. "The Meritage Room" is the perfect place to stage the reception. It felt like Family, The MOB Emily is this amazing woman who helped create the format to move this crowd and she clearly brings a lot of love to  everything she does with her Family.
