Photo of the Week

We just received the official photos from last year’s Casa Amore and we could not wait to share them with you! We thought we’d start off with this shot captured by Rhee Bevere Photography, featuring our Statue LOVE Letters, Drapery, Wooden Arbor, and Geometric Chandeliers! They all pair beautifully with the stunning lounge from Pleasanton Rentals and the Delford West florals and greenery really tie everything together. This was one of our favorite vignettes from Casa Amore and we hope you loved it too!

Casa Amore Recap From Casa Real

We had an absolute blast participating in the Casa Amore event at Casa Real at the Ruby Hill Winery! Each year, Casa Real and Palm Event Center host a showcase for engaged couples where vendors are put into designated teams that design different areas of the property.

At this year’s event, we teamed up with Napa Valley Linens, Hartmann Studios, and Nicole Ha Designs to transform the Amber Room. Napa Valley Linens provided linens and Hartmann Studios covered the rentals, while Nicole took care of the florals. As for us? The team created four vignettes, all in a rustic chic aesthetic with an industrial twist. We also unveiled some exciting new products and designs, including reclaimed barn wood walls, monogram letters, and more!

Karmen and Calvin’s Wedding at Casa Real

Karmen Li and Calvin Lu were married  on Saturday, January 8th in a beautiful ceremony at Casa Real at the Ruby Hill Winery. They exchanged vows in the Amber Room, and it was truly an elegant sight to behold. Carl of Delford West Flowers and Gifts provided the bride’s beautiful bouquet and all of the floral arrangements. Amanda, of Chasing Glimpses was able to photograph some spectacular images throughout the evening. Our wonderful videographers, Fallan and Jillian, were there as well to capture all the unforgettable moments from the evening.

The reception was held in the Grand Salon, and although the day was cloudy and wintry, the color palette of green and yellow really helped to brighten the atmosphere inside. Our very own Gaby Weiman served as the DJ and MC for the reception, and she made sure to get everybody on the dance floor. Karmen and Calvin shared their first dance as a couple to “You and Me” by Lifehouse. It was a simply choreographed waltz, but absolutely breathtaking to watch. Karmen and her Father shared a dance to “Greased Lightning”. The Father of the Bride was wearing a tuxedo t-shirt, and you could tell that the two of them were having an absolute blast cutting a rug together! Before long, the entire bridal party joined in and they all finished the dance together. It was a really neat moment!

Thank you so much Karmen and Calvin for inviting us to be a part of your special day and we wish you all the best!

The Wedding of Christoph and Lanelle at Rios Lovell Winery in Livermore, California

I had the pleasure of DJing Christoph and Lanelle’s wedding on June 6, 2009 at Rios Lovell Winery in Livermore, California. The ceremony took place at the gazebo overlooking the vineyard in full bloom; it looked amazing. Karl Eckel, from Delford West Flowers, did the flowers for the wedding. The flowers he placed around the gazebo were stunning. He also added flowers to the cake and turned the cake from ordinary to astonishing. I was able to work with Erica Ramos from Erica Foto in San Francisco, California. They were so much fun to work with. When it came time to do the bouquet and garter toss, all of the brides’ single friends said they didn’t want to do the bouquet toss. Lanelle wanted to throw the bouquet, so she decided not to have Christoph toss her garter.  Instead, she decided to throw the bouquet to the single guys.  Everyone had a smile on their face when I made the announcement and the guys all went for the bouquet. The only catch was that the guy who caught it had to give it to one of the single ladies. I want to wish Christoph and Lanelle the best of luck and hope they have a great time on their honeymoon on the Cook Islands.
