Final Wedding of 2009 ~ Mr. and Mrs. John Langmaack

We are super excited for our couple who celebrated their wedding day on Saturday, December 12, 2009. This was our final wedding of the year and it was such a FABULOUS day! Jennifer and John are such an amazing couple and we were so happy to share their day.

The ceremony and reception were held at the Bayanihan Arts Center; where the room was all a glow with gorgeous draping and lighting. Jerry McGaghey Photography captured the day and all of the special moments that followed PERFECTLY. The couple hired a photobooth for the reception, where guests enjoyed putting on props and getting their pictures taken for a scrapbook that was being prepared as a gift to the Bride and Groom for the end of the night. The guests just loved it! The Bride and Groom shared their first dance to Keith Urban's, "Only You Can Love Me This Way". The bride was absolutely stunning in her custom made gown. Their wedding cake was delicious and cheesecake! Their reception was GORGEOUS with pintuck linens and artistic floral centerpieces. The bride loved Calla Lilies so naturally we had 3 unique centerpieces for the different tables. One centerpiece was curly willow branches draped with Mokara Orchids, another was a bowl with Calla Lilies and curly willow wrapped around a floating candle and the final centerpiece consisted of 3 different sized cylinders with submerged Calla Lilies and orchids. They were just beautiful! The day was a joyous celebration uniting these 2 families. We were so thankful for the opportunity to share this amazing day with them!

We can't wait to share the highlight reel of the day! Remember to check back soon!

Thanks to our team of vendors who made the day extra FABULOUS! We couldn't have done it without you! :)

Many of you know about the tragedy that struck Haiti just last week. Unfortunately, one of our previous brides lost 3 of her cousins and 2 of her aunts lost their homes as a result of the earthquake. As many people are waking up without their homes and lost loved ones, they need our help. If everyone made a small donation, think of how many people will benefit by that. The power of many can move mountains. Please follow the link below and make a donation to the American Red Cross. They need all of our help and compassion even in these hard economic times. Thank you and God Bless...

Isabella's Ball "A Winter Wonderland" ~ December 6, 2010

Isabella's Ball, "A Winter Wonderland" was an amazing event that we were invited to participate in with our fellow planners, Confetti Events and Weddings. We had such an experience putting together this event for Isabella's milestone birthday party!

Isabella turned 5 on this milestone birthday. She was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, weighs 17 pounds and is 25 inches in height. Isabella has spent much of her life in Shriners Hospital. Unable to walk, she is thankful to have received her first power chair to enable a sense of mobility. She receives an IV treatment every 4 months, lasting for 3 days that costs $850. The medication is completely paid for by Shriners Hospital. Her first birthday was spent in a coma at the hospital. She has spent the years following in the hospital on her special day. This was truly a milestone birthday celebration for Isabella and her family, as they witnessed her turning 5 for the first time outside of the hospital. Isabella’s wish was that in lieu of gifts, people made donations to OI Foundation and Shriners Hospital so that other children who share her disease receive the same wonderful treatment.
Osteogenesis Imperfecta, known as “brittle bone disease”, affects 20,000 to 50,000 people in the United States. OI often causes the person to have muscle weakness, hearing loss, scoliosis, blue sclera, fatigue, and short stature. People severely affected by OI also have Restrictive pulmonary disease. To find out more about OI Foundation or make a donation to this worthwhile cause, please visit

We were so honored to be a part of this incredible team of vendors who made this day memorable for Isabella and her family. We had an over the top birthday cake provided by "A Piece of Cake", yummy gourmet food and tons of fun activities like face painting, a ballon artist, a clown, and a magician. A special thanks to Party Theme Decorators, who completed our vision for Isabella's Winter Wonderland. It was such an amazing day that left everyone feeling very blessed. :)

Click on the link below to view this most amazing day for Martha and Watson as seen through the eyes of Phillip Lloyd, their incredible photographer! :)

We had the absolute pleasure of working with two of the most amazing individuals, Martha and Watson. When we first met, I just fell in love with them because they were such a special couple. I am so thankful that they selected me to help bring their wedding dreams to life!

Their wedding was an absolute day full of love and romance! There were flowers and candles everywhere! Martha loved pink and purple and we managed to pull together the most beautiful pink and purple wedding of all time! The ceremony began in front of a gorgeous backdrop of orchids and crystals draping behind them. Martha was welcomed with an aisle full of candles and petals. As the two of them spoke their own written vows to each other, you could just feel the love between these two soul mates. As guests entered the cocktail hour, they were welcomed by the MARSONTINI, which was the signature drink of the evening and delicious passed hors d'oeuvres provided by Olympia Catering. As the introductions began into the reception, the bridal party danced in to the sounds of "Let's Groove Tonight" by Earth, Wind and Fire; which set the stage for the events that followed! Martha and Watson entered grooving on to the dance floor to the beat of "Before I Let Go" by artist Frankly and Beverly and Maze. They continued grooving into their first dance to a choreographed upbeat routine then slowing it down to Luther Vandroos' "So Amazing", which is exactly how we describe this couple!

Everyone enjoyed dinner and dancing the whole night long! It was definitely a day to always remember full of love, passion and romance! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Ducatel! We wish you all of the happiness you both deserve! Thank you for sharing one of the most important days with us! :)

We can't wait to show you the highlight reel from Voila Cinematic, the videographers, who captured the live emotion of the day! Check back soon!

There were so many people who added to the beauty of this day and we couldn't thank them enough for all of their hard work to make this wedding what it was.
