Kayla and Robert were such a lovely couple to work with!  When they called me practically a year in advance to be their wedding planner, the couple had a vision of what they were looking for and the style of venue they wanted. 

We immediately booked El Encanto, a perfect enchanted wedding ceremony location on the pond lawn.  Kayla knew that she wanted to walk on a bridge to Robert during the ceremony, and Robert's order or importance was lighting.  It is so nice to have a client who appreciates the importance of lighting, and how it can truly transform any space. 

We finalized to have the ceremony start at 5 p.m. right when it got dusk, so that when the gorgeous bride walked down the aisle, the lighting and candles in the arbor columns were flickering in full effect, creating a romantic and sparkly ceremony reflecting in each other's eyes as they said their vows.  This theme carried on into the dark blue and gold invitations.

After a warm and loving celebration of vows, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d'ouvres under the alcove of the pond before heading down to the ballroom.  Lighting and music by DJ Gavin Roy welcomed guests for grand entrance followed by a dance set prior to sitting for a delicious three course dinner. 

Gold linens from Luxe Linens were a perfect match with custom round menus on gold chargers and the soft, fluffy and gorgeous white and blush colored floral centerpieces by Precious and Blooming.

Following dinner guests enjoyed a few hours of casino style entertainment, and turned up the beat with bongo drums playing alongside. DJ Gavin (the groom got to play a set too!).  At the count of midnight guests rang in the New Year and celebrated alongside the bride and groom with noisemakers, hats and lots and lots of love.
