ONE-OF-A-KIND EVENTS FOR OUT-OF-THE-BOX CLIENTS
At Small Wonders, we love to think out-of-the-box. As far as we are concerned, the more unique or challenging a theme or event, the better. That being the case, we were beyond excited when we met Chip and Elle who approached us asking for a smokey, moonlight ceremony on Friday the 13th.
Naturally, we jumped at this fun and unique opportunity and got right on board with the vintage-circus-meets-sideshow theme. In our minds, there were only a few venues where we could pull this off- the best being Loft on Pine in Downtown Long Beach. Lucky for us, Chip and Elle fell in love with The Loft right away and so we began the planning, coordinating, and designing of this fantastic affair.
The Ceremony featured a light-beam to resemble the eerie aura of the moon, and low lying fog to really capture the smoky moonlight feeling the couple was going for. The officiant, Alan Katz from Great Officiants, did an incredible job performing the ceremony while channelling his inner ringmaster. There are very few officiants that could pull this off, and none so well as Alan was able...getting the audience involved and truly bringing the show to life.
The reception featured an amazing menu by Contemporary Catering, music by Phil Shane and DJ Mike Gallo, Magic by Georges Robert, and live piano music by Jeff Nottke. Working with Mary at The Loft was a pleasure, and everything ran smoothly thanks to www.eventcompass.co
