Like so many couples who had planned to get married in 2020, Linnea’s and Curtis’ plans had to change due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They decided to get married as planned (in a small ceremony) and to postpone their party… and for that party, they enlisted the help of my company, A Day Like No Other.
For their venue, they had chosen Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park, a historic Spanish-Mediterranean-style compound amidst lush gardens, housing boutiques, art galleries and studios.
The bride got ready onsite in the bridal suite… with photographer Trung Hoang capturing all the precious moments throughout the day.
… and here she is, ready with her bouquet from Orange Blossom’s Floral Design.
Groom Curtis had likewise dressed up and was ready for the First Look.
As they already WERE “Mr.” and “Mrs.”, Linnea and Curtis skipped a ceremony and jumped right into Cocktail Hour with their guests. Two caricature artists sketched guests’ portraits – a beautiful favor for everyone to take home.
Cozy lounge vignettes from Seventh Heaven Vintage furniture rental offered quiet retreats from the party.
The team of Cafe Wisteria, the inhouse catering operation at Allied Arts Guild, had set up dinner tables, clothed in vibrant colors.
Dessert came in the form of irresistible donuts by Johnny Doughnuts.
After dinner, it was time for Sunset photos for the couple, while guests were having a great time socializing as darkness fell.
After dinner, the couple’s First Dance to tunes by Elite Entertainment opened the dance floor. The new “Mr.” and “Mrs.” had finally had the party they deserved all along!
