the desert calls...

the sun, the sand, the cacti, oh how it's all calling our name.  come this october we'll be making our way down to palm springs for one of our sweet couples celebrations.  we are 'oohing and ahhing' over this one because it is a departure from our normal backdrops up in the bay area.  we hold palm springs close to our hearts and to be able to design a wedding with all the things we love, we are giddy.  from mid century furniture by Yeah! Rentals mixed with bohemian textiles and glassware from casa de perrin, to pharmacie serving up the cocktails, makes us happy campers.  with abi q behind the camera capturing all the goodness, we know it will be a good one! congrats to n + i, we can't wait to celebrate with you both.

enjoy events co. advice #3: two is better than one

well hello there.  we all know the saying, two heads is better than one and we couldn't agree more.

we're a team of two in the wedding industry, and as we say, we like to think we do things differently up here in the bay area.  em, being the natural creative and megs, being the natural planner we come together and create quite the dynamic duo.  not only do we plan your wedding from every logistical stand point but we design it, provide the blooms and provide the paper goods to tie the entire concept together.  that's right, we are a full on, one stop shop.  we're often asked, "how do you both work together, do you split up your clients?", "is one creating everything while the other plans everything?".  to be honest, both us of tackle everything, together.  however, we both have our strengths and we both become the "lead" on some things, but at the end of the day we both create an amazing day, together, for couples.  here are a few things that you may want to know about us - your "planning + designing" dynamic duo...

No. 1 we love what we do and its gonna show at your wedding.

sounds cheesy but it is seriously, sickeningly true.  we get excited putting rental orders together, suggesting perfectly fitting vendors and calming our clients down when they are freaking out about not finding perfect bridesmaids dresses.

No. 2 we've probably done this many, many more times than you have, so we are here to help.

trust in us and the ideas we bring to the table.  the weddings we create are a collaboration between our couples but since this isn't our first time at the rodeo we always suggest things that we know will make the celebration that much better.

No. 3 you probably have a job that keeps you very busy and crazed. this is our job that keeps us busy and crazed.

our team is invested in your day just as much as you are.  from our handmade crafting to late night emails, we are the busy little bees making sure your day is what you've been envisioning.  no need for you to invest your time in searching for vendors, we know the good folks already, so sit back and enjoy.

No. 4 we'll be your friends and your damage control mavens

after spending a year (or more) together of planning your big day, we are your gals!  your friends.  your homies.  we are on the front lines answering all questions from all vendors while you sip on your champagne.  planning your wedding is an intimate experience that we all want to have a good time with.  after all, it is about you and your partner saying your i do's and enjoying the day you've been imagining.

No. 5 this really should be an enjoyable experience for you. 

so sit back and enjoy.  remember, on the big day everything is going to be awesome because you have great vendors involved and they are gonna make it all happen for you.  including us.  we promise.

shotgun floral {sneak peek}

mad about {new orleans}

these days we are mad about a little city full of warmth and charm.  we are in the midst of wedding planning & designing but before the season kicked into full gear i found myself taking a little trip to what might be a new favorite city of mine, new orleans.
you can't go to new orleans without experiencing a crawfish boil or a beignet from cafe du monde.  i mean the puffy, french doughnuts covered in powdered sugar are a must try.  dust the powdered sugar off your seat, sit back and listen to a sax player street side.  from the air boat ride in the heart of the bayou, to the amazing painted doors that cover the french quarter and beyond, new orleans is a must see.  next time we find ourselves feasting on some cajun cuisine, we hope it will be at a wedding!  who doesn't want to tie the knot in this eclectic city?  from the umbrellas, to a jazz band leading the way throughout the streets, with these traditions we say, sign us up.
