A Classic Party Rental Showroom

We were thrilled when A Classic Party Rental asked us to design their showroom for fall & holiday season.  It was a blast trying out different linens, china and flatware AND  the best part it was ALL at our fingertips!!!  We teamed up with our "roomie" in the We Do offices Jennifer Alridge from Card Ink.  She provided us all the pretty paper and stationary.  And our neighbor at We Do Kristen Hornberger took some lovely photos of the finished product.   So if you are in some need of inspiration or some rentals for your Thanksgiving, Christmas or Holiday celebrations stop in A Classic Party Rental and check out the showroom.

Kayla and Kenny are so sweet.  Each of them in their own special way.  Their wedding day was no different. Kenny surprised Kayla during the reception....her reaction was priceless.

Enjoy!  Thanks to all who helped make this day special for them and especially Jet Kaiser for the highlight film

A True Fairy Tale Wedding

Krystal and Courtney
July 13, 2013
Scottish Rite Cathedral

I don't think Disney could of wrote this love story and dream wedding better.  Krystal and Courtney are so in love along with their daughter Rhyan, they make one of the cutest families.
Their wedding was nothing short of magical.  I helped them with planning every single detail and it  turned out AMAZING.  There were a few times where I thought- is this going to work out?  But in the end-the day was truly magnificent.
On Saturday, the morning everything went smooth.  Krystal and her maids were being pampered in the Presidential Suite at the Omni. While Courtney and the guys were playing cards down the hall in his suite.  Once, the ladies were all made up we traveled to the Scottish Rite and Krystal put on her gown.  She was stunning.  Then the guys arrived all decked out in their tan suites and orange stripped socks (a personal fav).  We had a planned a major surprise later in the reception, so the couple saw each other before the ceremony.  They were able to get so many fun and amazing pictures.
Unlike the rehearsal, the ceremony started at 5:30 on the dot.  The decor was spectacular, the arch was full of flowers.  Courtney and THE CUPID are friends, he sang as Krystal walked down the aisle.  Cupid's voice is unbelievable.  Bishop Benjamin gave a touching service.  Then at the end ceremony, Courtney gave a nod to his guys and they all put on sunglasses.  After the ceremony, guests gathered outside on the steps.  A Cinderella carriage was waiting for the couple but before they took a ride, Krystal and Courtney released doves.  Just another part of the fairy tale.
Guests then went up to the balcony and sipped on  signature cocktails from  the custom ice luge and nibbled on hors devours.  At the end of the cocktail hour, Krystal and Courtney took to the dance floor as guests watched from above and Cupid sang their first dance song.
The ballroom was stunning!  White panels were up lit in purples, oranges and golds.  The centerpieces were a mix of gorgeous arrangements with hanging glass orbs. The head table was a focal point, the floral arrangement was 8 feet long and florals and candles hung down from white branches. And in back of the DJ was huge screen of the couple's monogram.
After the delicious dinner, Krystal and Courtney cut the cake and then the maid of honor, best men and a few family members gave toasts to the couple.  AND then it was time for the MAJOR surprise- on the big screen we showed a highlight video from the days events.  EVERYONE including myself was AMAZED and in tears.
After that the dancing begun and gosh could these people dance.  Then there was one last finale CUPID performed the Cupid Shuffle.  After hundreds of weddings and just of many times hearing this song, it was one of the coolest moments in my wedding career seeing it performed LIVE.
What a love story and fairy tale dream wedding!!!  I wish Krystal and Courtney nothing but the best.
