Amazingly, right after the ceremony, the rain stopped, which allowed the photographer, Bill Quinn, to get some great outside shots while guests mingled inside during the cocktail hour.

Then it was time for the reception to begin! The ballroom at Vizcaya was beautifully decorated in shades of pale pink, champagne, and ivory, with touches of black and gold. Audrey Chaney from Botanica Floral and Event Design made the most beautiful floral arrangements, mixing up tall and short throughout the room. Botanica also provided many wonderful decor pieces including the adorable settee that the bride and groom used for their sweetheart table. The floral and decor pieces that were intended for the outdoor cocktail hour, found new homes all throughout the ballroom.





After dining on a delicious meal, then came dessert! Musarrat Afshan of Pretty Sweet outdid herself with this amazing assortment of sweets. The beautiful trays and serving pieces were provided by Botanica Floral and Event Design. In addition to the dessert buffet, each guest was served a beautiful cupcake in the same flavor as the bride and groom’s cutting cake. Take-out boxes were provided for guests to take a few sweets home.




The best “wow factor” of the day came during the first dance. Yes, DJ Mike Anderson of Creative Memories Entertainment actually made it snow in the the ballroom! The guests were blown away and it made for such a memorable first dance. It was the perfect touch for a December wedding!



Some how, the rain that had foiled the morning ceremony plans, managed to continue holding off during the evening hours. So after the wedding reception was over, photographer Bill Quinn took Suzanne and Titus out for some great photos around Downtown and Old Sacramento.

Last month, I coordinated an open house event for one of my corporate clients, the Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons of California.  They purchased this amazing old home in Downtown Sacramento that had been converted in to office space.  Even after those renovations, the house still need much more remodeling and renovations so they’ve been hard at work with those since December.  Having seen the building when they first purchased it and seeing it now after all those renovations, it’s just so wonderful to see it be restored to it’s true grandeur.

Now that the OPSC staff are finally settled in, they held a cocktail style reception open house on the evening of April 18th to show members and invited guests all of the hard work.  To keep with the vintage look of the interior, I chose these wonderful moss green tablecloths from Mimi & Company for the cocktail tables.    The beautiful orange and green centerpieces made Annette Wood from Floral Arrangements by Annette, were the perfect compliment to our linen choice.  Thanks to “Mother Nature” literally raining on our parade (okay, it was more like sprinkling) we weren’t able to have as many cocktail tables outside on the majestic front porch.  Fortunately, we were able to find space for those displaced tables inside.

The delicious food was provided by Hannibal’s Catering and Wendy from Primo Bar did a fabulous job with the bar tending.  Neumann Enterprises also did a great job with valet parking.  Tables and bar glassware were rented from Classic Party Rentals.  Special thanks to Steven Stafford for all these great pictures!
