Wedding Trends: Hand Painted Paper Lanterns

I was so inspired by these hand painted lanterns Mindy Weiss, debuted at one of her events, I just knew I had to do a post.  We have seen lanterns at events over the last few years and this new innovative way to add this punch of color and pattern is just genius. 

You can completely carry your brand pattern throughout your event by adding a pattern, or just infuse two colors that you are using at the event to keep everything cohesive.  This can easy be a DIY project with stencil that can be fond at your local craft store.

Celebrity Weddings: Tamera Mowry and Adam Housley

It is so much fun to see how the celebrities do it.  Most of us all grew up watching Tamera Mowry and her sister on the hit television show Sister to Sister, so it was great to see her fairytale wedding hit the net.

The amazing and wonderful Mindy Weiss was the party planner for this event and of course it was only filled with romance and style. I just love the blush palette that kept everything flirty and fun. The fabulous Jose Villa was on deck to capture the tender moments.

Mindy Weiss new Inviting Company skyline collection…

As a bride you are always looking for creative ways to thank your guests for traveling so far for you big day.  Why not gift them with a bag that they can keep well after the wedding day as a way to remember their trip to your area.

I am completely smitten with the city skyline line that was just introduced by Mindy Weiss. The bag retails for only $12 and is a steal compared to other totes and baskets out there.

Oh and of course there are other cities too!

Check out the rest of the line as well as some tips from Mindy on ways to personalize these awesome items.

So now on to the big event.  Now it is time to show off this amazing event.  Still crappy photos, so please excuse but I wanted to show you goodness. The Most Ridiculous Wedding Event Ever 2, was held at the Bookbindery.  Wedding Pros had the chance to be inspired, hang with their peers as well as brides.

Check out all of these last minute emergency kit that Mindy as and her crew display in the suite for the bride and the bridesmaids just in case they forget or need anything. Totally love the idea.

Just love all of the use of all the lounge furniture, mirrors and unique centerpieces that were used throughout space.

Loved all of the HUGE balloons that were hung throughout the Bookbindery.

Mindy’s adorable son Alex hanging with the DJ, I see how he is going to work his way in the industry!IMG_0871

In my former life, you know that I had a thing for bling. Anything that involved bling and weddings, my name was all over it!

Did you see the ring paper clip? How clever!

All the flowers ready for the bouquet making contest.

Can’t forget the drink tags.

Oh hi Mindy!

tags had little diamonds attached.

Dying for these black chandeliers for my house.

For some reason although for breakfast we used ole school cafeteria trays, the awesome custom tray mats made everything look so pretty!

Even the milk cartons had style.

Custom Yogurt Parfait’s are a must!

Bag’s for the chip bar. You cannot even imagine how much of a hit this was!

Oh chips are too fattening you say huh? Ok we had a fruit bar setup just for you!IMG_0887

There was a coffee station complete with lattes, cappuccino and some of the best coffee around.

Cleverly displayed cereal bar. Who wouldn’t want a trip down memory lane and enjoy classics such as froot loops, frosted flakes and cocoa puffs.

The cake divas doing their thing

My heart may have stopped when I had the opportunity to meet Elizabeth Messina. What can I say about her that hasn’t been said already? Elizabeth art makes me fall in love with love all over again.

Randy looking as dapper as ever.

this guys must have been terrified of my lack of makeup! Celebrity Eyelash Guru Ja’Maal Buster made everyone a celebrity that day.

My sister from another mutha! Dana from the Broke Ass Bride clearly had the best shades in the house.  I was secretly hoping that Fresh Hubby would break out in his Will Smith rap, no dice.IMG_0874

Mindy was having a true Oprah moment and gave out gifts to the audience every hour.IMG_0876  IMG_0877

The Most Ridiculous Wedding Event Ever 2

In 2010 I have done things I never thought possible such as pursuing running ellyB Events full time.  Obtaining clients that are not only awesome and totally in love, but become my lifelong friends. Working with the Outstanding Occasions team to take ellyB to the next level.  Going to Engage!10 and meeting people that I admired from far or only saw on TV. Then heading to LA to attend my new found friend Mindy Weiss’s Most Ridiculous Wedding Event Ever.

I bet you are wondering exactly what this event is about! Ok grab the hot cocoa let me fill you in.  So Mindy Weiss who I am sure you all know and love, throws this event for brides and wedding pros and it is simply ridiculous! All of the details, people, decor are simply over the top and therefore ridiculous.  It is a great time to get inspired, meet great people and DANCE!

I had the opportunity to get to spend several days with Mindy and the equally amazing Ellen Black of Lehr and Black. I also had the chance to hang with the Junebug Weddings girls; Christy, Blair and Kim. Below are professional images from Junebug. Please head to their site for more coverage.

Engage!10 Recap

I know I know this event happened over two months ago but it is never too late to look at pretty pictures. What can I even begin to say about Engage!10? It was a life changing experience.  Not only did I learn from the greats, but I had the opportunity to mix and mingle with people I have admired over the years.  Rebecca Grinnals and Kathryn Arce does an amazing job with the Engage symposium two times a year, and gives us wedding and event planners and opportunity to raise the bar. Can’t wait to attend the next one!

Sit back and take in the pictures from my unforgettable experience at The Breakers in Palm Beach.

Pictures were borrowed from Atlanta Occasion’s blog. Please head over there to see additional pictures.

The below pics are from our personal camera. So please excuse the amateur exposures. How pretty are the papers? All of the branding showed exactly how paper should look like for your event.  Think about all of the little details from beginning to end.

I have met Simon Bailey many times over the years so it was great to reconnect with him again.

Now this lady is one of the sweetest people EVER.  To know that Ellen Black of Lehr and Black clientele is 98% celebrities and she is so down to earth as she is, is really unbelievable.

Can you believe these two sweethearts are the brains and beauty behind Style Me Pretty? Abby and Tait Larson are a couple made in heaven and were just delightful to meet.

Oh Mindy Weiss how I love you so! I don’t think I ever thought you would be as down to earth as you are!  It was great to meet you and now have the privilege to call you my friend!

Ellen and I with Amy Atlas and her director.  It was great to have some moijitos and just chit chat.

Jill Miester was a doll and shared her knowledge so willing.

Yes! Can you believe it? That is Mr. Randy Fenoli from Say Yes to the Dress! He seriously has the most energy I may have ever seen in my life.

I had the chance to celebrate my good friend Harmony’s birthday while we were in Florida.  Harmony is the owner and branding guru of The Bridal Bar.

With the two most powerful women in the wedding industry! Carley Roney from The Knot and Darcy Miller from Martha Stewart Weddings.

Learning the day to day lives and business strategy of celebrity wedding designers Todd Fiscus and David Beahm definitely added fuel to my game!

Does this lady need any introduction at all? Sylvia’s Weinstock’s dress was one to envy for the night!

Cindy from Tulle Belles is the genius behind my little pink bag that was created for ellyB’s brand!

Here with the fabulous ladies of Engaging Concepts, Kathryn and Rebecca, along with the beautiful Lara Casey and Randy Fenoli.

The Eventiste herself, Marcy Blum

There is no way you can meet Sylvia without meeting wonderful Ben Weinstock. Them two are just adorable! Also had a great time getting to know Marilyn Oliveria who is the editor for Inside Weddings. Oh my I have no idea why me and my room Cassandre Snyder never got a picture together alone but here you can see the chick that has now been dubbed my official travel buddy.

Michelle Rago, was just a hoot! As much fun as I knew she would be.

I must admit, I did not know much about Bryan Rafanelli before Engage. All I knew is that he had planned Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. Bryan, I am now your biggest fan and cannot wait to meet and soak up some of your brilliance again.

And there you have it folks. The conference that made me think bigger and brighter!
