A Gorgeous Day on a Beautiful Budget!
It was just September when Deyanira and David reached out about their dream wedding in December of last year. Three months is a daunting timeline for most people planning a wedding, but we worked closely with the couple to not only plan their dream wedding, but to plan it on time and on budget. Their wedding day was a truly intimate and beautiful experience, and is proof that a gorgeous wedding day doesn’t have to break the budget. On the same day that Deyanira and David hired us we kicked-off a budget, theme and design planning meeting to plan their ceremony and reception for 80 guests for under $15K. The event shined, and so did the couple!
The venue was David’s sister’s home in Chino where we placed a large 40’x50′ foot tent complete with chandeliers, string lights and soft market lights. The long farmstyle table setup wrapped around the interior of the tent, and each table featured custom centerpieces designed to flow through the event space. We repurposed the centerpieces to decorate the ceremony isle as well, saving money on total cost for the florals. Our friends over at Tiffany’s Party Rentals gave the couple a fantastic discount on the furniture rentals, and setup the entire event the evening before, including their ceremony arch, chairs, cocktail hour lounge and so much more. They also stuck around the next day to help us flip the tent from the ceremony to the reception, allowing us to reuse the ceremony chairs for the reception to save on the budget.
Our photo and video teams were on-site early, capturing the Bride and Groom’s special day from start to finish! This short social video from Negrete Visual Arts showcases some of the best moments from their beautiful day.
For Catering, we had Deyanira and David’s favorite BBQ delivered for 100 guests, and invited the talented team over at National Bartender Staffing to help prepare and serve the food and drinks for the evening. They also helped us clean out the space at the end of the evening to help ensure an easy wrap up for rentals and the family the next day.
Overall, their wedding was a big success on a not-so-big budget. The couple and their guests enjoyed an evening of fun, laughter and dancing the night away! Check out some photos from their special day!
