May Day in L.A.

Stacey & Company was pulled in to consult on a wedding in Los Angeles. The couple had attended another event designed and coordinated by Stacey & Company. We first met with our couple about a year and a half before the big event and provided a little venue feedback. After setting the date for May Day - they wanted us to design something that would celebrate spring and incorporate their initials carved in a tree (the bride had fallen in love with something she saw in a wedding magazine). So our spring blossom design worked perfect with their color palette of pink & green.

Our happy couple opted for a full invitation suite including, save the date postcards, invitations with custom illustration, response cards, menus, table markers, escort cards, tags for homemade cordials and much, much more.

Our budget-minded couple was looking for an inexpensive, yet elegant idea for their centerpieces and we were more than happy to help out. Many people don't realize that a real cost-saving option for centerpieces is to rent from Stacey & Company. We have a wide variety of vases, jars, cake plates, etc. available for our clients to use at a fraction of the cost of purchasing them.

Pink + Green Sweet Treats
When working with our bride we made several suggestions regarding table decor, centerpieces and general set up and layout of the room. We also suggested that she take the pink and green color palette to the next level and do a pink and green candy bar. We helped the bride source and purchase the candy as well as design custom treat bags for the guests to fill up, take home and enjoy.

As the wedding drew closer, the bride and groom decided they needed a little more assistance with wedding planning and day-of coordination. We were more than happy to step up. We sent team member JoAnna to be their day of coordinator. She handled everything from transportation of centerpiece bowls and candy to tear down of the event at the end of the night and everything in between. In the end, our bride and groom were so happy and were glad to have an extra set of hands on deck.

Thank you Alicia & Michael for letting Stacey & Company be a part of your very special day.

Weddings in Wine Country

We love wine country weddings. What can we say, we're a sucker for gorgeous weather, great lighting and awesome venues. Last year a couple contacted us to help with "month-of" wedding coordination. We were more than happy to oblige, especially when we found out the location. The wedding was took place at Solage in Calistoga - A scenic, hip resort on the Silverado Trail. Luckily for us, our bride and groom were super organized, knew exactly what they wanted, so once the day was upon us, they let us take the reigns.

Our bride and groom also really liked the idea of a candy bar featuring some of their favorite candies in their favorite colors; brown, purple & green. We helped the happy couple source the candy, order it and set up the bar on the day of with apothecary jars & scoops provided by Stacey & Company.

Our crafty bride made her own jam & printed up recipes for her guests.

We also helped our bride source designs for her program fans, menus, place cards & table markers. She was able to pull it all together and it turned out beautifully.

"Month-of wedding coordination" involves as much or as little hand-holding that our couple needs the month before their event. In this case, our bride & groom were very organized and knew what they wanted, but just needed some moral support & guidance. We had several meetings, attended a tasting, ran the rehearsal and supervised all set-up on the day-of. The event went off without a hitch and the happy couple are now living happily ever after.

Special thanks to Zach of Zach Anderson Photography. It was a real pleasure working with you!
