Cool Favor: Flip Books

19 Sep

While photo booths are popular for weddings, recently we worked with Heather and Ken (our 9.10.11 bride and groom) on a super fun flip book station.  This is where guests get into a booth, do something funny for 30 seconds and a series of pictures develops to create a flip picture book.  Check out video from the station.  Pretty cool!  Thanks to A Little Scene flipbooks for sharing this.

It’s Heather and Ken’s Wedding Day!!!

10 Sep

This morning, we have the honor of welcoming Heather and Ken into marital bliss. ¬†This super cool couple is right up our alley. ¬†The bride, who has been planning a beach inspired affair, has been an absolute joy to work with and last night when we met the groom for the first time at the rehearsal, it became apparent why they are so perfect together. ¬†They are such a fun couple and we can’t wait to celebrate their lunch time reception at Bali Hai today with some pretty amazing vendors!

CONGRATULATIONS HEATHER AND KEN!!!! We wish you a lifetime of happiness together!  A special thank you to 8Twenty8 Studios for sharing their engagement photos with us.

Then Comes Marriage: Katy and Ben’s Wedding Video Highlight

24 Aug

Just one week ago, Katy and Ben tied the knot at the Sheraton Marina with an intimate celebration for 65 guests. ¬†He’s a Marine, she is a lawyer and together I worked with the couple to plan a candlelit indoor ceremony followed by a lounge style reception. ¬†Instead of a traditional sit down dinner, we brought in lounge furniture, wash lighting and food stations, including a mashed potato bar (yum!), fajita station and more. ¬†From custom lighting to orchids adorning the side of guest champagne glasses, this affair is one we won’t forget!

A HUGE congratulations to Mr and Mrs Conner!!!  Thank you for allowing us to plan your big day!!!


We can’t believe that Rafael Pires turned around a beautiful highlights video in such a short time. ¬†Thanks so much Rafael!
