It’s always fun to have to lay out a room differently than normal, makes you stop and have to think, love it.

For this couple they had a dj for the dinner and later in the evening, but for two hours they had a rock band/Steel Panther (what a lot of fun they were, rocking the house) from Vegas entertain the crowd and they needed a huge stage. In a not quite square ballroom you have to make a decision to either make that stage the focus and spread the tables out around it, or what we did, we put the stage at one end, then all the dining/guest tables with the royal headtable furthest away from the stage. It worked out perfectly, and this band was absolutely awesome, a lot of fun.

What made this wedding even more unique (than the rock band) was that the bride and groom were not involved in one aspect of the wedding. Their rep who was male and not gay or married so feeling way out of his league, he and I planned everything, from the color concept to the decor etc. We had a great time and I do think by the end of it he was actually having fun!!!

So if wanting to have a dramatic/wow effect, don’t be scared to do a dark base, just like we did here, meaning black linens, chivaris/cushions, leaving the napkins and centerpieces to provide the pop. My weddings this year seemed to be this kind of feel or totally the opposite, love it, thus my job is never boring.

Special thanks Karla/Elegant by Design for the florals & always thinking out of the box for me. Also to Frank Salas, http://www.franksalas.com one of my fave photogs for the pics above. Also, Brie and the team from the Ritz, as always, fab u lous working with you all as always.

Till next time
