Private Estate Silver + Blue Santa Barbara Wedding

Private Estate Silver + Blue Santa Barbara Wedding

Villa Verano February Santa Barbara Wedding

This very special private estate wedding was full of delight, elegance and a class act couple to go along with it!  When Jill + Jason sought me out, they did not have a location picked out yet, but knew they wanted to get married 2.15.15 because of Jason's work schedule (Hight School teacher in NYC).  They were really leaning toward a luxury hotel wedding, but wedding planning is my thing and reading people my talent.

Because their friends, families and selves were coming to California from the East Coast, I suggested they look at private venues.  This would allow them to enjoy the weather and stunning views Santa Barbara offers for longer than a 2 hour stint (with daylight savings, they would have most of the reception in the dark).   Soooo, off to see venues we went, and Villa Verano is what they fell in love with.  It allowed for their close family to stay w/ them (just as if they were in a hotel) and enjoy the property and privacy for their entire stay.

I The colors the client chose were silver and blue for this February affair.  Below the gorgeous invitations created by the über talented Lazaro Press and Designs.

The wedding ceremony took place at the quaint and intimate setting of the lower garden on the property. Their officiate, a close friend, did a phenomenal job with the ceremony.  I would hire her for all of my nuptials if she lived closer, not New York City.

Venues for a Destination Wedding in Italy

Tuscany is an ideal location for the perfect destination wedding.

Choosing a unique and stunning location for your wedding is not an easy task.  There are so many options that it’s very easy to get confused. Tuscany offers an abundance of history, which is why there are numerable villas, monasteries and castles, all beautiful and each with it’s unique design and elegance!

Asking a Tuscany-based wedding planner for suggestions, will help find the perfect venue for you.  Below are our tips to find the ideal location to make your dreams to come true!

Venue Felici Events and Super Tuscan Wedding Planners Wedding-in-Tuscany

Venue Felici Events and Super Tuscan Wedding Planners Wedding-in-Tuscany

The typical Tuscan "casale",an old Tuscan home, is a familiar place where you and your family can feel at home during your stay.  A casale is usually small and intimate, ideal to accommodate your bridal party and share with a few select members that will take part in the wedding preparations!

05Wedding-in-Tuscany

05Wedding-in-Tuscany

Farmhouses are similar to the typical tuscan casale. As wedding venues, farmhouses not only will host your bridal party, but are an amazing starting point for a one-of-a-kind walk among vineyards as the wind gently caresses you, or to savor a taste of the local wines and products. It doesn’t get more authentic than a farmhouse to experience Tuscany to the fullest.

Tuscany Wedding Location Felici Events and Super Tuscan Wedding Planners

Another luxury-medieval alternative you can easily find in Tuscany, are castles! With their magic charm, castles will let your guests feel like they’re living a part of history but with a modern look.

If you are planning on having a large number of guests, and you want them all by your side during the days before and after the wedding, the best solution is an ancient medieval burg transformed into a cozy lodging. Besides the traditional aspect of the outside areas, they are indeed very cozy and you will have all comforts at your fingertips. Nearby you will find day spas and elegant restaurants that the burg put at its guests’ disposal.

Castle Wedding Location Felici Events and Super Tuscan Wedding Planners

Elegance is not unusual in Tuscany! Other than its rustic side and infinite fields around these houses, Tuscany offers plenty of elegant Italian styled villas. The luxury interiors will amaze your guests and the beautiful Italian gardens are ideal to host elegant outdoor receptions. Your guests will appreciate such a sophisticated choice!

03Wedding-in-Tuscany

Tuscany, however, is not only countryside and vineyards…right around the bend the stunning Tuscan sea is waiting for you!

3italy-seaside-wedding-tuscany-coast

3italy-seaside-wedding-tuscany-coast

That’s just a short list of the possibilities, but don’t worry… other stunning venues are over the next hilltop as you make your way throughout the Tuscan countryside. Now that you know a bit about Tuscany...what will you choose?

Ask Felici Events and Super Tuscan Wedding planners for more suggestions!

Felici Events Table Design at the Luxe Linen Showcase

Felici Events displayed our wedding and event design skills recently, at Sherwood Country Club. Luxe Linens invited us to produce a table-top design of our choice, to showcase the 2015 line of new linens and napkins. Here is a video clip showing you the finished product as well as the wonderful team who helped us fulfill a little creative magic!

https://youtu.be/4_mxxRxN1Rg

We were tickled pink to be invited, which carried into our theme of a pink table top inspired by the 2011 movie 

Marie Antoinette

 (directed by Sofia Coppola, a fellow Italian-ite and Felici-favorite).

We chose to showcase our table of eight using Luxe Linens' Sherbert Vogue.

Once we decided on the linens, Felici Events called on the the talents of a newer vintage rental company Otis and Pearl, to supply the silverware, china and glassware.

felici-114

Nina of Coco Rose Designs and the Felici Events Team could have spent hours in her storage unit looking at all the fun table top pieces.  In face, we may have.  Low and behold, it was easy for us to fall in love with the pink glassware you see at each table. Perfectly fitting for such a girly table top setting.

Next, we asked for help from our friend and fellow

ISES-VSB 

member, Joost Bongaerts, owner of Florabundance, if he would like to contribute, and graciously he supplied all the floral.

The final touches, envisioned by Nina of Coco Rose Designs included the sweet fresh berries and delectable

macarons

 embellishing the table top.

Finally, we chose the

Florence dining chairs

(both with arms and without) to complete the look of the dining table.  They were definitely the talk of our table amongst attendees and fellow showcasing peers.

It was absolute perfection.  The location, setting, details, event and evening.  Thank you Luxe Linens for including us in this project!

Party Interactive Entertainment Idea - #Madlibs

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and this past week-end, Felici Events has had the honor of experiencing just that! One of our clients hired us to produce her milestone 50th birthday celebration.  She came to Zohe's Godfather themed birthday, which took place in October at the Santa Barbara Club, and absolutely loved the party, especially Zohe's take on Mad Libs.  Zohe is a fan of having something unique and getting guests to interact rather than filling out a boring old guest book.

We made some mob-libs and had guests fill out cards rather than signing a guest book.  We don't know who had more fun that night, Zohe's friends and loved ones who wrote in the mad lib cards, or Zohe hooting and hollering in laugher reading them after the party.  

This idea is perfect for any party, a mitzvah, birthday, baby shower, bridal shower, corporate mixer or event a rehearsal dinner or wedding.

Here is the inspiration for Zohe's Godfather Theme Birthday  - Mad Libs

Star of David Inspiration for Bar Mitzvahs

Star of David Inspiration for Bar Mitzvahs

This recurring Star of David motif was a great way to tie in a 'light' theme of one of our recent bar mitzvahs. This modern take on the star was not only featured on the man of the hour's cake, but was repeated in the invitations, dinner menus and table numbers. A theme like this helps an event become more connected and adds fluidity. This subtle symbol is a great way to remind everyone at the gathering what a great time it is for this young man or woman; a time to celebrate the young adult's coming-of age and first of many steps into maturity. Cards and Star of David logo were created by Lazaro Press, who did an amazing job of bringing out the star shape amidst the existing circular pattern.

Christine Dahl of Christine Dahl Pastries paired the offset yellow Star of David with blue fondant on the outer layers of the cake. Between each layer of the three-tiered cake sat a transparent box filled with lights and shimmering sparkles.
