Suzanne & Chris ~ Married! {Part 2}

Dec 13, 2017   //   by Lora   //   Weddings  //  No Comments

As I mentioned in { Part 1} Suzanne and Chris was theee best couple with such a big heart and lots of energy!!  Gold Hill Gardens in Newcastle, CA offered the light-hearted elements they were looking for in their Special Day.  After the ceremony, during the cocktail hour, guests could stroll the property, enjoy a beverage, play ping-pong, cornhold, giant chess or jenga, (all these lawn games are permanent features of the venue!)  The newlyweds enjoyed a bit of photo time, along with some dee-licious grilled cheese sandwiches created by Jackson Catering & Events!

 

 

 

The color palette Suzanne wished for was romantic, natural, soft and “simply elegant.”  Working with the common thread of gray as the underlay, Katie with Ambience Floral Design, designed a free flowing centerpiece of greens, whites and varying heights of candles.  Very pretty.

Looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, Chris and Suzanne decided three different food stations would be fun for their guests – Loaded Mac and Cheese station, unique salads served with corn bread, and the street tacos were OUTSTANDING and a huge hit! Jackson Catering & Events knocked it out of the park!!

Two elements Chris desired was a full bar (check), and incorporating his favorite Land Park neighborhood Marie’s Donuts, into the dessert.  Looks so good, right?  I suggested an iced bucket of plain and chocolate milk to be served alongside (YES!), and displayed some donuts in the familiar pink box for a bit of whimsy.  At the end of the evening, I believe there might have been 4 donuts remaining!  After a few toasts, the dance party started with Mike Regan of Mr. DJ Event Services at the helm.

What a beautiful, fun-filled and family-centric wedding this was.  I loved every minute of planning and executing.  Thank you Chris and Suzanne for allowing me to work with you on creating probably Thee Best Day Ever!!  See you in the neighborhood… maybe at Marie’s Donuts!
