Allison & Case's Mo'Rock'n Wedding

We have fallen in love with The Dias Family. I don't even know where or how to begin to explain how amazing this family is. I just know that I am a better person now that I know such wonderful, loving people.
Ok, enough mushy stuff ~ on to the details.....
After much anticipation on the"Hanger" event, the day arrived for the 4 day production to start and guess what..... it started raining!!! I have to give many props to the guys at Walker-Lewis Rents because they did not let a small thing like what seemed to be a monsoon stop them or slow them down. They were soaked to the bone by the time thier 10 hour day was up, only to come back the next day and start again with the other 3 tents!!! Janice from Town & Country had linens made for the event that we knew would be perfect ~ and they were!! We were fortunate to have Stems deliver the floral pieces early so that we could get a jump on hanging the reverse centerpieces. Hahaha ~ I said "we"! Well, Morgan and Vinnie of Media Solutions, Inc. actually took that job over. I think the thought of me up on a 20 foot genie lift gave them a bit of a scare! I could've done it!!! Really!! This concept was very exciting for us and we were super stoked at the opportunity to finally do a true reverse centerpiece. Sure you can hang things from the ceiling, but this was much more more than that and looked amazing! To mirror the reverse centerpieces and add more dimension to the 11,000 square feet of space, Stems used the tall square vases with Manzanita and fresh floral on alternating tables along with short square vases with a fantastic mix of spring blooms.
I think the anticipation of Slates dinner helped keep us motivated. Once the table scaping began, we knew it was going to look just as good as thier food would taste. The presentation was perfect! We were priveledged to work with new vendors ~ photograper Daniel Wilson Photography and videographers Ben & Drew of Cana Video Productions. Both are from the San Luis Area, and wow are they talented. Here are some of the pictures that I took from my phone ~ reminding you that I am not a professional photographer!!! Oh, and The Dessert Table pic is from The Dotted Apron. I hope you get the idea of how fantastic this event was! Enjoy!

Tents getting on...

Tents up, rain's coming down!

Tables and chairs dropped in about 20 min!!

Testing the lights on Day 3 MSI nailed it!

No fresh yet, still looks so cool!

Love this swirl pattern

And the fresh just added the perfect flare

Final touches ~ Getting there!

Love the pin tuck linen that T&C had made for the event

Stems used quite the finesse getting the floral up!

Staging for The Zippers who ROCKED the house! Oh and yes,
we did it again. The grass dance floor was a hit!!!!

Slates presentation of the Hor's was fantastic. They backed
it up with an array of incredible tasting food!
Gourmet Chip Bar ~ Oh yeah!

My fav lemonade stand to date! Oh, and Slate's added fresh
Blueberries in the mason jars for extra flare!!

The dessert table was a HUGE hit! The Dotted Apron outdid
themselves! Yum-meeee!!

A fun little detail ~ menu boards! Best Gourmet Burger Bar ~ EVER!!!

Even with last minute changes, Exclusive Creations came through
with another great seating chart.

And to end the night, the Taco Truck! Boy did we need that!!!
See you after our next event!!!

~ XOXO ~
