The only word that could possibly describe Heather and Jason’s California wedding planned by the amazing Michelle Garibay Events is EPIC.
The design was inspired by the couple’s love of the story and Hollywood glam in the movie La La Land and how it mirrored their love story. They envisioned a black-tie affair at Sweet Oaks Ranch with epic entertainment, from ‘champagne angels’ to pyrotechnics, for their 450 guests. Hanging floral chandeliers by Soiree Floral Design dotted the ‘ceiling’ of the open air tented reception space from Signature Party Rentals. The night ended in a silent dance party lead by Encore Event Entertainment with everyone singing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. You don’t want to miss a single gorgeous detail captured by Brian Leahy Photography!
From Michelle Garibay Events:
Four separate event areas, a two week load-in to build the event literally from the flooring up culminated in this 3-day epic wedding. This design was inspired by Heather and Jason’s love of the story and Hollywood glam in the movie La La Land and how it mirrored their love story. They fell in love when they least expected it, in the midst of pursuing their dreams. They envisioned a black-tie affair with epic entertainment at every turn for their 450 guests.
Their smoked acrylic and holographic save-the-dates set the tone for the event. Guests were welcomed to cocktail hour with “champagne angels”? who poured the bubbly from high above in chandeliers as they entered the property and the aerial violinist continued the entertainment.
Dinner consisted of inaugural pours from the couple?s own wine label and their nod to Hollywood continued with a choreographed first dance to a custom La La Land arrangement that had a dress change midway through and ended with impressive pyyrotechnics!
Guests then walked into a separate dance and lounge area, including a visit from the Habit Burger truck and a silent dance party with everyone singing “Bohemian Rhapsody” to end the night and then a final newlywed send-off as they drove away in a vintage Rolls.
