Melissa and Jon chose something completely different for their wedding. They wanted a small intimate dinner party for a select few guests, and to really make it special for those people! They selected Villa Sevillano as their reception venue and also spent a few nights in the home. Because they chose and smaller guest count of about 56 people we were able to utilize the indoor space for their reception. We brought in two incredible long wood tables and dressed them in silver runners and Camilla Svensson Burns provided the stunning flowers! Melissa Musgrove captured this day so beautifully, we always love her work!
We are seriously IN LOVE with her bouquet!
After the ceremony the guests enjoyed cocktail hour around the pool outside. The couple loved the fact that Villa Sevillano had so many olive trees they decided to do an olive oil tasting during the cocktail hour. With a large selection of olive oils and flavored balsamic vinegars for their guests to taste on display, they could then bottle their favorite flavors to take home! Such a fun and interactive idea for this venue.
As we welcomed the guests into the dining room for dinner, they each found a hand calligraphed envelope with their individual names on the outside. Inside was a sweet thank you note from the bride and groom thanking them specifically for being at their wedding and how much it meant to have each person there. This was an incredible touch for an intimate party, and everyone felt so loved and appreciated.
Once the guests had settled into their seats, the 7 course dinner began. Duo Catering provided the guests with a feast they could never forget. Each dish was perfectly paired with a special glass of wine. Here I have shown a sampling of a few of the courses.
After dinner the guests cozied up under the heaters on the outside terrace to enjoy coffee, cake and other mini desserts, then the party moved downstairs where they danced the night away with the DJ. The event was an incredible success and the bride and groom could not have been more thrilled with the way their wedding day unfolded. We loved working with Melissa and Jon and wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.

We are so excited to share this video with everyone today! There is something so special about videography, it just captures all of the emotion of the day so beautifully. This was our first time working with Artisan Productions and we were SO impressed with their work. This came to us so quickly after the wedding, and the shots they captured are just stunning!

When it came to planning Becky and Bryce’s wedding day, they had tons of ideas. From Great Gatsby to Havana Nights, they wanted their guests to be wowed by their environment, as well as have an incredible time on the dance floor. The emotion and joy shown on the faces of this bride and groom is so evident. They were thrilled with the final design that we helped create for them. The crystal chandeliers, crystal walls and fabric draping added just the right touch over than dance floor. The flowers, the linens, and the assorted chargers created a breathtaking palette for their Great Gatsby inspired wedding, and as soon as then sun went down we turned up the music and the bright colored uplighting in all of the palm trees surrounding the canopy created the perfect Havana Nights flair that they desired. Congratulations to this absolutely gorgeous couple, we are wishing you nothing but the best for the rest of your lives together!
