Sidney and Scott Wedding and Reception

  It might of been St. Patrick's Day and the bride's side of the family has Irish blood in them but, when it came to the wedding and reception of Sidney and Scott there was no green to be found.
  The black table coverings with accents of white, silver and fuchsia made the room sparkle!
  Guests were greeting at the entrance with tall glass trumpet vases filled with black feather highlights and white floral arrangements.
The Bar was adorned with crystal accents.


Guests sat on chairs that had black covers with fuchsia satin chair ties.

Seating for 240 guests with sheppard hooks, hanging crystal chandelers and a lit archway set up as a back drop for Sidney and Scott's ceremony.
 The head table had tall crystal arrangements and silver wrapped pillar candles.
The room also was decorated with a favor table, sweet table and the guests sat at zebra printed table toppers with fuchsia satin napkins tied with a black gerber daises.

Special Events Whatcom County Style

Special Events Magazine always catches my eye when I get the new issue.  What are the trends of the event world and what will people think of next? 
For the numerous special events and fundraising that take place in Whatcom County it always amazes me the talent and resources that are pooled into the great events locally.
Recently at the Ferndale Event Center we had two fundraising events.  Each of them brought around 325 guests together for a night of education and an opportunity to support a great cause.
The entertainment for one of the events was even recently featured on a local TV Station.
Whether it be a silent auction or a dessert dash here are their pictures that showcase how they molded the banquet space for their guests to enjoy.

Ski Chalet Wedding

 If you love to ski then President's Day weekend is the known time to head to the mountain.  This happy couple and their bridal party got to have it all.  Saturday they headed to Mt. Baker enjoying the slopes and then Sunday they enjoy their nuptials with family and friends at their very own transformed Ski Chalet Wedding.  
  From when the guests walked in the door and were greeted with a Hot Chocolate station to the "How to Ski" video on the big screens guests were taken back in time to experience what Alexa and Berndt are both passionate about.. each other and skiing.
  The foyer of the Ferndale Event Center had options for the guests of either a hot or cold beverage.  With one corner set up as a Hot Chocolate station and the other corner with a Punch/Champagne table.  Guests also had boards where they could find there seat assignments and another table with pictures show casing other married family members dear to the couple.


 As guest entered the main room they could lounge in the corner with soft seating or check out the elaborate head table set up for the bridal party.  The cake continued with their theme as a topper of the bride on top of her husband on skis!  


 Guests enjoyed seated at the "Resort" labeled tables with antique china and place cards made from pine cones.

  Congratulations Alexa and Bernt!

How do you add your unique flare at your wedding reception?

Depending on the time of year it always a suprise what special touches brides and grooms will add to their wedding receptions.  One's wedding reception is a direct reflection of who you are and what you stand for.  Sometimes hard to tap into your creative side one needs to reach to the internet and or magazines to find those ideas that real pool the resources necessary to make your special day just the way you want to.
Saying this and what actually transposes is a hard task.  Most weddings become diluted due to family and friends input and therefore, as a recommendation always stay true to what YOU want.
This recent reception was one that had special touches everywhere you turned.  It was great to see all the different centerpieces as well as the bars who were set up as mini vignettes.  Best Wishes to Rachel and Joshua!
