What could be more perfect for my 1920s Gatsby Grooms to have their rehearsal dinner/cocktail party for 80 people at the Roosevelt. We were checking out the hotel for possible locations for their rehearsal dinner and they discovered the bowling alley. It was fun unique and cool. There was bowling a pool table a photo booth and games.
We chose fun foods like sliders, fries, mac n cheese. The specialty drinks were named “The Grand Entrance” and “The Gatsby”
Guests bowled, played, and had a fun pre celebration before the big fabulous affair.
These are a few of the details of the evening. Stay tuned for party shots.
http://www.pcweddingphoto.com took all the fun photos of this special night.
Sam and Ashan were married July 26th at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. This was truly one of my favorite weddings. I met these 2 amazing gentlemen at a gay wedding show last year. They wanted a planner to whom they could relate to and get to know not just as their planner but as a friend whom they could trust. Ashan wanted a regal wedding. He had been planning his dream wedding since he was a little boy and it meant to him that his planner did not steer him away from his designs or ideas but only enhance them. I gave them a couple of venue ideas that would support his dream wedding. The second one, the Roosevelt was a hit and it certainly helped that it was set up for a wedding that day. 3 days later on Christmas Day, Sam and Ashan saw the Great Gatsby and it was full steam ahead with planning the Gatsby Wedding of the millennium. We booked the venue, then hired http://www.pcweddingphoto.com to capture the day. One by one the rest of the vendors followed suit. Ashan wanted white feathers to the ceiling. He drew out a beautiful feather alter that was his vision for where he wanted to get married. http://www.butterflyfloralanddesign.com captured what he wanted perfectly. pearls cascaded not only from the alter but the centerpieces as well. We wanted everything to be authentic to the time period from linens, the white coats that we bought for the servers, the flapper girls, cigarette trays, the gorgeous sequined linens, to the fabulous band http://www.bigluckyband.com. We put together a pro team of over 25 vendors to create this magical Gatsby affair where all the guests were so excited, they dressed authentic to the period. It was a production and it was important to me that my clients were comfortable and happy with every decision and choice. We had a production meeting a month before the big day to go over every detail of the timeline of the day and every design element. This made a huge difference in the planning and every vendor on the same page.
The day came and every vendor was in complete partnership. Sam and Ashan got to enjoy their 5 hour photo shoot before the ceremony between popping into the ballroom to see how spectacular everything looked and practicing their first dance. They both put their hearts in to planning this extraordinary day not only for themselves but their family and friends. It was day that all of us will remember.
So excited to feature this highly styled engagement shoot for one of my upcoming weddings this year. We had a lot of fun styling the shoot. My clients had have a lovely home with fun nooks and crannies in their … Continue reading
