Candy is not Only for Children

Candy Stations are the rage and we have seen many different types in the past few years. We love making them and each one is unique to the event. We have about 50 glass containers to choose from and tons of scoops and decor. We are providing them to our brides, other brides, venues and wedding planners. They just keep getting better and better. We like to display 12-14 flavors of candy in about 20 containers, so it is truly abundant. We can include cellophane bags, personalized tags, and an attendant, but the wedding planner can do these things on her own. We have special pricing for venues and planners so they can pass on the service to their clients at a reasonable rate. Give us a call and we can discuss details!

"Dear Kendra,

You made our dreams come to life and the entire day was spectaular. It was so nice not having to worry about a thing. I didn't expect to be so calm, but knowing everything was under your control was terrific. Truly it could not have been better - Thanks you so much. Lots of Love, Amanda & Jon Ambrose"

Live Entertainment

Having a live band at a wedding is so much fun. There are many fun "retro" bands, some even in costume like Wonderbread 5 pictured. They were fabulous at this wedding and the dance floor was full all night long. There are a few drawbacks to having a live band that you need to consider. They play sets and in between sets they need a break. This break does not include making announcements or playing background music. The perfect combo is to have a DJ at your wedding also. The DJ can play the dinner music, do all of the emceeing, and play music and coordinate wedding activities (ie: cake cutting, bouquet & garter) during the band breaks. You get the best of both worlds!

L&P Real Wedding

Classic beauty with fabulous bright summer flowers...the Jewish influenced ceremony was under the beautiful chuppah made by Sarah at Cutting, in front of a giant redwood at Capitol Park. The reception followed at the Library Galleria. The food was exceptional, catered by All Seasons, and the photography, as you can see, stunning, by Sam at Sharpe Photography. Thank you team for another perfect event!

A wedding is not just a ceremony and dinner any more. couples are getting really creative with making it a celebration for all of their guests to enjoy. Photo above shows a Chinese Lion Dancer, there were actually two Lion dancers and 4 drummers at this wedding. The guests loved the Asian themed wedding and the dancers were a complete surprise. Below is the Laguna High School marching band. We had them secreted away so the guests wouldn't see them and then had them enter with the bride and groom on their heels for the Grand Entrance. Make a statement...and give your guests an amazing show!

Indian Wedding Part 2

An Indian wedding celebration occurs over several I decided I needed a few posts to show the different celebrations. The Sikh wedding ceremony is conducted at the Gurdwara (Sikh Temple), the one above was at the Temple in Yuba City. The Barat (photo top right) is where the groom, his family, and close friends parade in a dancing group, often with dohl drummers. They are welcomed by the brides family. This is followed by the Milni ceremony where both sides meet and exchange hugs, garlands and well wishes. All guests share tea and breakfast before the blessing ceremony.
The Blessing Ceremony is in the Gurdwara Hall, where men and women sit on opposite sides and remove their shoes before entering; they also cover their hair with colorful scarves.
The bride and groom then enter and begin the ceremony. During the Palla ceremony, the father of the bride places one end of the scarf, coming from the groom's shoulder, into the brides hand to signify that she is leaving his care to join her husband's. There are many reading and songs and the couple walks around Sri Guru Granth Sahib (the altar area) a total of four times. After the ceremony everyone joins together for Langar, a community meal. Indian weddings are such fun with constant dancing and eating, and the most amazing outfits and jewelry. For more information see
