2012 Most Memorable Moments!December 19, 2012
2011 has been our best year ever at Significant Events! With 40 events under our belts for 2011, it has truly been a year of amazing events and amazing growth! We have made so many fabulous memories and have worked with incredible vendors that it was so difficult to choose our favorites for this year, but here they are!
MOST MEMORABLE BRIDAL GOWN: AMANDA’S GOWN (MOCKINGBIRD BRIDAL)
MOST MEMORABLE BRIDESMAIDS’ GOWNS: JENNY’S BRIDESMAIDS
MOST MEMORABLE HAIR & MAKE-UP: NATALIE (PURE COLOUR)
MOST MEMORABLE BRIDAL BOUQUET: BETH’S BOUQUET (LUSH COUTURE FLORAL)
MOST MEMORABLE BRIDESMAID BOUQUET: JORDANA’S BRIDESMAID’S BOUQUET (THE LILY PAD FLOWERS)
MOST MEMORABLE CENTERPIECES: KRISTN & TYSON’S CENTERPIECES (LAVENDER FLORAL – SONOMA, CA)
It’s always nerve-wracking working with a vendor you have never worked with before, especially thousands of miles away for a destination wedding, but Lavender Floral of Sonoma, CA did not disappoint. All of the flowers for the wedding were gorgeous, but the centerpieces were our faves! The rich oranges and greens were the perfect choice for a fall wedding and the variety of flowers used in these groupings were so fitting for this couple. Against the chocolate brown linens the flowers really popped, and the inclusion of local, organic fruit was a wonderful touch as well to celebrate this couple’s love of fine foods and the abundance of fresh produce found locally in Wine Country.
MOST MEMORABLE ALTAR PIECES: RAE & MATT’S WEDDING (OUT OF THE GARDEN)
MOST MEMORABLE WEDDING CAKE: BECKY’S CAKE (PANINI BAKERY & FETE DES FLEURS)
MOST MEMORABLE GROOM’S CAKE: CHARLIE’S CAKE (OPULENT CAKES)
What a fun cake for our 6’8″ volleyball playing groom! And, of course, the whole thing was edible from the cake filled Wilson volleyball to the graham cracker crumb “sand” below! The guests loved it!
MOST MEMORABLE PARTY CAKE: DAVE’S BIRTHDAY CAKE (SWEET ART BAKERY)
MOST MEMORABLE LINENS: REBECCA & TOM’S LINENS (BBJ LINEN)
Federal Blue Damask linens from BBJ were a luxury item for Rebecca and Tom, but we were all so glad that we decided on this splurge! The linens looked so elegant especially when paired with the buttercream, ivory, and silver centerpieces from Lush Couture Floral. Such a regal look!
MOST MEMORABLE INVITATIONS: BECKY & LUCAS’S INVITATIONS (SIGNIFICANTLY SAID – INVITATIONS BY SIGNIFICANT EVENTS)
The invitation is the first example your guests have of the event to come, and no invitation could have set the tone better for Becky and Lucas’s classic black and white wedding than this beautiful ensemble by Significantly Said. The couple loved it so much that Lucas had the invitations mounted in a shadowbox and presented to Becky at the reception as a wedding gift!
MOST MEMORABLE DALLAS VENUE: EM THE VENUE (ROBIN & ANDY’S WEDDING)
MOST MEMORABLE DESTINATION VENUE: CORNERSTONE GARDENS – SONOMA, CA (KRISTN & TYSON’S WEDDING)
MOST MEMORABLE BRIDAL PORTRAIT: BECKY’S BRIDAL PORTRAIT (ALLISON DAVIS PHOTOGRAPHY)
MOST MEMORABLE WEDDING PORTRAIT: BETH & SCOTT’S PORTRAIT (SIMPLE MOMENTS PHOTOGRAPHY)
MOST MEMORABLE CANDID IMAGE: SONYA & BRIAN’S FIRST KISS (SWEET CAROLINE PHOTOGRAPHY – AUSTIN, TX)
For another one of our destination weddings in Fredericksburg, TX, we were privileged to work with the talented Sweet Caroline Photography out of Austin. With many interesting places to capture images at Sonya & Brian’s venue, La Trois Estate, Caroline was able to capture this wonderful moment from above. I love the body language of the minister as the couple shares their first kiss surrounded by smiling guests. Such a beautiful setting and such a priceless photo!
MOST MEMORABLE LIGHTING: DAVE’S 50TH BIRTHDAY PARTY (BEYOND)
MOST MEMORABLE DJ/PARTY EXPERIENCE: SARAH & KANE’S WEDDING (GLENN ROUSH ENTERTAINMENT)
MOST MEMORABLE LIVE ENTERTAINMENT: IDENTITY THEFT (ROBIN & ANDY’S WEDDING)
MOST MEMORABLE FAVOR: MICHELE & BECK’S WEDDING BOOK FAVORS
Michele & Beck are both librarians and incorporated their love of books into many aspects of their wedding design. From their “Library Card” Save the Dates to having a published author as their officiant, books abounded but nowhere more meaningfully than with their favors. When Beck & Michele moved in together, they combined their personal libraries and found they had many duplicates. These duplicates formed part of their centerpieces, and guests were instructed to pick a book or two to enjoy in their homes as our brides had in theirs for so many years.
MOST MEMORABLE TRANSPORTATION: ANNIE & DEVIN’S WEDDING (CITY OF MCKINNEY TROLLEY)
MOST MEMORABLE MEAL: KRISTN & TYSON’S WEDDING (ELAINE BELL CATERING – NAPA, CA)
Hard to beat a meal coming out of Wine Country, and we with thrilled with the options provided by Napa based Elaine Bell Catering for Kristn & Tyson. From our tasting months before the wedding, we all fell in love with this company’s options, and guests were delighted with the fresh and delicious meal they received that evening which included: Hors d’ourves of Fresh Live Pickles filled with Chicken Salad, Mini BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Shoestring Fries, and Provencal Tartlets; Entree of Baby Organic Greens with Feta Cheese, Fresh Cranberries, & Herbed Vinagrette, Tuscan Fulton Valley Chicken Breast and Roasted Marinated Petite Sirloin with Horseradish Scallion Sauce, Green Pea Risotto and Grilled Wine Country Vegetables; and last but not least a dessert of a wedding cake made of wheels of cheese with sides of fresh honeycomb and fig membrillo. My mouth is watering just remembering this fantastic meal!
MOST MEMORABLE EVENT BRANDING: MAGE SOLAR TRADE SHOW AFTER PARTY (SIGNIFICANT EVENTS, FAUXCADES, BEYOND, AND BRAVO! ENTERTAINMENT)
For the after party for a major solar corporation vying for visibility amongst competitors, branding was key! As guests walked up to the venue, they saw the signature colors of the company reflected in a wash of the terrace as well as with multiple Gobo projections and skytracker lights provided by Beyond. Enormous vinyl decals covered windows and doors and even the elevator at every possible turn provided by Fauxcades, Significant Events provided custom branded centerpieces for every table, and last but not least, branded baby tees were donned by a crew of gorgeous girls provided by Bravo! Entertainment who mingled and danced with guests at what became the best party in the entire space!
MOST MEMORABLE EVENT DESIGN: BETH & CHARLIE’S WEDDING (BETH SANDLIN, DEITRA BUTLER, & MEREDITH COMMENDER)
So many amazing memories in 2011! We can’t wait to see what 2012 will bring! Happy New Year and thank you for allowing us to be part of the most significant events of your life!
