M & C ~ Married!

Nov 14, 2014   //   by Lora   //   Weddings  //  1 Comment

M & C described to me the vibe and vision of the wedding they desired… lots of style, romance and sophistication, but also showcase their fun, whimsical side through their mutual love of Disneyland and Mickey Mouse.  Due to the nature of C’s job and a matter of National security, there are no images that disclose his face, so, check out the fun details and the overall photography and that very vibrant Disney color palette; notice the boutonnière… a cute nod to Mickey! The traditional Catholic nuptial mass was held at Sacramento’s beautiful Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament. Outside on the church steps, Air Force officers, wearing required white gloves, lined up for the Saber Arch – fabulous!  Guests then moved on to the dinner reception held at the impressive Sacramento Grand Ballroom that was both elegantly decorated and held lots of whimsy. Ettore’s European Bakery created the groom’s cake (Black Forest) and the very fun wedding cake which was a definite showstopper!

Kim & Artie – Gettin’ hitched!

Oct 28, 2014   //   by Lora   //   Sacramento Wedding Planner, Weddings  //  No Comments

This Saturday, November 1st will be a unique, fun, unusual and happy day for Kim & Artie – they have some wacky ideas (and I say that with great affection and a smile).  We pieced together their wedding plans in a very short period of time (they contacted me mid August) and since they live in Chicago, they had not met their vendors that I selected for them until September… here are some great shots of their e-session taken by Thais of Love at First Click.  Fun, fun couple!  Can’t wait!

Linda & Jim ~ Married! {Part 2}

Oct 23, 2014   //   by Lora   //   Weddings  //  No Comments

Intimate (40 guests), relaxed (very natural earthy setting), beautiful (check out the flowers!) and extremely fun (it’s what happens when a close-knit group of family and friends celebrate).  After the lovely pondside wedding ceremony and cocktails at the lower half of their backyard property, guests made the way up the hill to join in for a fantastic dinner prepared by Jackson Catering.  Linda’s color palette was deep shades of red and working with the patio space, we used two shapes of tables.  Each table was named after their four dogs and included a photo of their furry “children.”   As a surprise to the couple I researched a variety of quotes which I had added in hand-calligraphy to the menu cards – the guests loved sharing aloud!  Once dinner was completed and the sun was setting, dancing started up after the couple’s sweet first dance. Steve Schon with Function 45 DJ/MC  kept them happy and added the fun theatrical lighting effects.   Happy Couple~ Happy Planner… I am thrilled Linda & Jim entrusted me to create their vision.  Happy Marriage!  (Thanks to Sam with Sharpe Photographers for all the great images.)

Linda & Jim ~ Married! {Part 1}

Oct 20, 2014   //   by Lora   //   Weddings  //  No Comments

In one of the prettiest settings this year… Linda and Jim’s California foothills home wedding was such a delight to plan.  When Jim built his home and designed the slopping back yard, people would drop by and ask if a community park was being developed!  It is that beautiful.   After a sweet First Look, the couple wandered the winding pathway downward to the pond all the while taking photos.  Linda’s grown children escorted her to the ceremony space, which was designed under a unique soft and flowing fabric shade covering with an asymmetrical floral tower anchoring the space.  Guests enjoyed an open bar and appetizers following the ceremony… eventually making their way back up the hill for an alfresco patio dining experience.  BTW, notice the cocktail napkins – Linda asked me if their mutual love for triathlons could be incorporated… kinda cute, huh?
