beautiful New Years Eve wedding…

Congratulations Joy + Steve!!!
Joy and Steve were married on New Years Eve at the Sheraton, Station Square.  Their event was an intimate affair; perfect and simply beautiful!
Many of the details – which were stunning – were made with love by Joy herself with help from the wonderful Simone Hudson of 5Senses Events Design who coordinated every detail of Joy and Steve’s special day – you can see my “interview” with Simone that I did in October with her at this link – it was this interview that helped Joy decide upon using Simone’s services! – Simone is a delight to work with and I highly recommend her to anyone planning any type of an event.
The image here is just one of the examples of cooperative creativity between Joy and Simone…

More beautiful details…the up-lighting of the ballroom was spectacular!  Simone helped Joy create this beautiful space through her creative resource gathering, one of which included Andy Schick of ADS Lighting whose lighting set the most perfect and elegantly beautiful mood of the Sheraton Station Square!  The limbs in the vases are manzinita branches – simply STUNNING! And a select guest from each table got to take home one of these beautiful hand-created centerpieces – what a thoughtful gift for Joy to offer her guests!

    Thank you for the picture of the cake toppers…they are my grandmothers love birds and she had them sitting on her dining room table for all the years I can remember. She is in a home now and I found them going through her stuff with my mother and I just knew they would be perfect!
    You are AMAZING!
    Much Love– joy
