As promised I'm posting Wedding #2 the Valdez & Mendiola, this wedding was very special to me. My husband and I know the groom from waaaaaayyyyy back, and the bride did not take long to get to know :) The concept was Enchanted Elegance. The couple chose the awesome setting of the Old San Francisco Steakhouse in the Crystal Room. The room is very similiar to Tavern on the Green in NYC. If you have an upcoming event, I highly recommend this location. The staff and atmosphere are superb.
Every event begins with an invite. What else could this invite be but the ultimate symbol of Fiesta? To me it is the most important make or break decision for the invited guest on whether to attend or not. It has been my experience that the more creative the invite, the more guests you will have. Thankfully I had alot of help from the women in my family group at church to make ALOT of them. :)
We will begin with their shower. It was a couple's Fiesta theme, very colorful and very fun!! This is a pic of their sign in table. In lieu of gifts the couple asked for love offerings to help begin their life with. In the bowl are brightly colored envelopes for the guest to place their donation in. When finished the guests placed them in the Pinata that the bride and groom would be breaking open towards the end of the party.
This garland was a blast to do. Basically it consists of streamer that runs between two tissue flowers. I will definitely be making these again because here in SA they can be very versatile for a number of events.
