Beautiful Tent Design for your Wedding Reception

This mind-blowingly gorgeous wedding reception took place last summer and we think it is one of the most beautiful tent designs we have ever worked with. Revelry Event Designers worked side by side with Town and Country Event Rentals to create this remarkable tent with fabric draping. Images by Lighting transformed the reception as soon as the sun went down with their spectacular lighting! The chandeliers were dressed in tons of greenery and the florals on each table were stunning! Jackson Durham hand glued each tiny lambs ear leaf onto the vases on the head table, which was incredibly unique and really made that table feel special! We chose 6 different table linens that all worked together in the same color palette. Some tables were long 16-foot feasting tables & others were beautiful wooden dining tables mixed in with round & square tables with linens. This created a beautiful atmosphere that set each table apart from the next, yet was still very pleasing to the eye. The magnificent cake was designed and decorated by Sweet & Saucy Shop and Roomforty provided the delicious catering. We are extremely thankful to Willa Kveta Photography for capturing these extraordinary images from this day! We hope you enjoy this gorgeous event and that it inspires you with a beautiful tent design for your wedding reception!

We are thrilled to share this wedding as inspiration for a beautiful tent design for your wedding reception and hope you enjoyed all the details!

Private Polo Estate Wedding part 1- Pink and Green Cocktail Hour

We planned and designed this wedding on a private polo field in Carpinteria, CA and there are just too many incredible photos to put in one blog post. The bride and groom chose the elegant color palette of “Kate Spade- Pink and Green”  and wanted to keep the theme in line with the polo field. So we made sure this event was preppy, sophisticated, and small accents of polo mallets which added a finishing touch. We worked with Roomforty Catering who presented the guests with a “Tomato Bar” where the guests could help themselves to the stunning heirloom tomatoes accompanied by different assortments of ingredients. We also had a fromage station where an expert perfectly paired together the right combination of cheeses and fruits for each guest. With a large bar centrally located in this pink and green cocktail hour, the guests were able to  savor their favorite summer cocktails and enjoy the breathtaking ocean views. A special thank you goes to Steve Wrubel and Willa Kveta for capturing these beautiful images! We will be posting more of this beautiful wedding next week~

Crystallized Purple Estate Wedding

What a joy it was to help Dana and Mike’s dreams come to reality. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to create such a breathtaking ceremony. The ocean reflected through the clear glass vases, and the large purple arrangements were spectacular.
One of our favorite elements of this wedding was the wedding cake hanging from a tree!
From the Mother of the Bride Via Yelp:

“Ive worked with La Fete Weddings on many weddings over the years so when it came time for my daughter’s wedding, June 30th, 2012, I knew Colette and Kaitlin would be a perfect fit.

Ive given a review based on my experience as a wedding photographer, but this review is based on my experience as a Mother of the Bride. She exceeded our expectations. Not just on a few things, but everything. Her talent, skill, grace, and attention to detail, is as good as it gets.

Colette and Kaitlin were remarkable. I rarely get to use the word remarkable. But that’s the word that fits our experience.

Our wedding was at a private estate. Which in itself presents so many extra challenges. But if there was a glitch, we never knew it. Absolutely everything was smooth as silk. She was right on with all her recommendations. (Of course I was smart enough to take her suggestions.) Tee hee..

I would, and do, recommend them in a heartbeat. I could never write all the details to which they cared for on our event. From the very start, they were asking questions and taking notes on things I would never have thought I needed to know.

The design they created was gorgeous, fluid, cohesive, and simply breathtaking.
My daughter wanted the color purple. If I’m honest, I winced a bit, because I had just come off of photographing 5 purple weddings in a row. Don’t get me wrong, I too love the color purple and all the weddings were very pretty. But I was hoping for something more unique so it would feel more personal.

Colette said “trust me”. I did. And it was glorious! My daughter and I could not imagine how anything could be more beautiful. The guests were so complimentary of the wedding and we have to thank Colette and Kaitlin for their vision and talent and love.

I wholeheartedly, and without reservation recommend LaFete Weddings for not only your wedding, but any event that you want to be beautiful and flawless.”
