Good food, good company and good times. We all have so much to be thankful for each and every day and Thanksgiving is the perfect time to reflect on those things. It’s a time to celebrate another year while surrounded by loved ones and of course some delicious food. Hosting Thanksgiving dinner can seem stressful and overwhelming. Before you throw in the towel, remember that hosting can actually be fun, that’s right FUN! With a positive attitude and a bit of planning ahead, you can host a stress-free, fun Thanksgiving. Rather than focusing on every little detail to host the “perfect” Thanksgiving meal, spend time focusing on the meaning of the day. We all have such crazy and wild schedules all year that it’s easy to lose sight of what’s important and to forget how blessed our lives are. Try setting the table the night before and preparing ahead of time step-by-step, that way you are not overwhelmed the day the guests arrive. At the end of the day, Thanksgiving is about being thankful. A time to surround ourselves with the ones we love and eat food until we fall asleep! Enjoy the time you have to spend with those you love and GIVE THANKS!

Remember the days of the Rat Pack. Of gals in stunning gowns, and gents with cigars in hand. Lounges, with dimmed lights and shiny chandeliers. Martinis in every hand. Where the who’s who of Hollywood all vacationed in Palm Desert and glamour oozed out of every corner. Luxe furniture, big bands, white luscious florals and of course glitzy rhinestones and feathers at Lauren and Ray’s Hollywood wedding brought back the romance of old Hollywood that would have made even the Great Gatsby gasp!

Now, bring to center stage a couple who’s roads to each other may not have been easy, but who’s love and dedication for one another turned a wedding day into an unforgettable celebration – where the vendors were brought to tears!

This Hollywood wedding truly had it all! The colors incorporated a bold palette of black, white and gold. But color wasn’t enough – the experience was made real through the textiles and texture of materials and patterns that included letter pressed paper, foil, acrylic, leather, pearls, velvet, satin and more!

Beginning with the ceremony, Inviting Occasions created a structure that replicated the chandeliers of the Cosmopolitan Hotel Lobby, the couple’s favorite “2nd Home!” The mirrored bar at cocktail hour invited guests to experience the signature drink, a variation of different flavored martinis. Then, they were invited in, entering the doors that were flanked by stunning structures encasing either side of the ballroom – two mirrored walls enhanced by chandelier decals with acrylic crystals hanging as escort cards displaying each guests name and table assignment – a momento of the evening!

From the time the guests received the opulent wedding invitation with a custom chandelier monogram (that would appear on everything from paper goods to ice sculptures to the dance floor gobos) the guests knew it was going to be an amazing celebration.

The guests waltzed in the doors to the sounds of a big band playing the best of the 1920’s while trying to catch their breath as they took in the sight of the ballroom.  An oversized dance floor was surrounded by variations of different seating vignettes from mirrored tables to cozy black tufted booths to long glass tables with candelabras and hanging floating candles. A true homage to the sultry lounges of yesteryear! No two centerpieces were the same! Hanging candles seemed to float below 6 foot golden structures. Glass candelabras were surrounded by sparkling boxes bursting with white arrangements. Textured containers played host to a variation of florals and candles! The four-foot acrylic cake stand, overflowing with pearls and rhinestones, was softly lit in the glow of candles.

Should guests need a break from the dancing and dining, a cigar lounge (of course!) was constructed with plush furniture in the patio area or they could refill their glasses from the custom martini ice luge, and for those who need a little sugar at the end of the evening, they could get their fix with martini flavored cotton candy – delicious!

Intertwined Events_1920s Hollywood Wedding Intertwined Events_1920s Hollywood Wedding Intertwined Events_1920s Hollywood Wedding

The beautiful bride and groom were not only gracious hosts on their Hollywood wedding night, but wanted their friends and family to celebrate with them the entire weekend and brought the same attention to detail while they hosted everyone for a welcome dinner, day of play with golf, spa and cabanas at the pool, morning-after breakfast as well as a farewell dinner to send everyone off in style!

It may not be the 1920’s any longer, but for one weekend, a couple brought back the true glamour, romance and glitz we all have come to love and adore from that era, as they promised to love one another and unite their families forever!

When two lovebirds compliment each other perfectly, their gorgeous San Juan Capistrano wedding is sure to wow their friends and family! Melody and Reid share the bride’s love of birds, their love for music, and most importantly their love for each other! With their closest friends and family in a beautifully romantic setting, they had a lovely wedding day.

Intertwined Events_San Juan Capistrano Wedding for Two Lovebirds Intertwined Events_San Juan Capistrano Wedding for Two Lovebirds

The story of Melody and Reid is definitely unique! Reid’s twin sister Darcy was at work just like any other day when in walks the new girl – Melody. Within 5 minutes of talking to Melody, Darcy’s twin intuition told her that she had just met her future sister-in-law. After a few weeks of playing match maker trying to get them to meet, one office encounter and a 3 hour lunch later, the rest is history. Darcy not only served as matchmaker, but she also played the part of Melody’s maid of honor for the big day.

Intertwined Events_San Juan Capistrano Wedding for Two Lovebirds Intertwined Events_San Juan Capistrano Wedding for Two Lovebirds

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting than the tranquillity of the Villa in San Juan to bring this couples vision to life. Melody’s love of birds was visible throughout the venue from the names of each table, to the tablescape decor, cake topper and paper goods. Melody finds something intriguing yet peaceful about birds and was surrounded by them on her special day. She spent the last year collecting these beautiful brass bird statues to decorate the tables with and to show the guests where they would be sitting for dinner.

Intertwined Events_San Juan Capistrano Wedding for Two Lovebirds Intertwined Events_San Juan Capistrano Wedding for Two Lovebirds

The one downfall to this gorgeous venue is when the train passes by – but not to worry, each groomsman was armed with a train whistle which they kept hidden in their pockets during the ceremony waiting for the perfect time to bring them out. As the train passed by the groomsmen blew their whistles and brought laughter to the ceremony while playing off the charm of downtown San Juan Capistrano.

Intertwined Events_San Juan Capistrano Wedding for Two Lovebirds Intertwined Events_San Juan Capistrano Wedding for Two Lovebirds

Melody and Reid wanted to make their guests feel included in the ceremony so they decided to choose a handful of people and gave them each an adjective – then asked them to come up with something clever, a funny anecdote, quote or description of what that word meant to them and to a great marriage. As the officiant, and groomsman, called out each word the guest tasked with that particular one would stand and share their thoughts with the couple. It was a truly unique and special way to involve their guests.

Intertwined Events_San Juan Capistrano Wedding for Two Lovebirds Intertwined Events_San Juan Capistrano Wedding for Two Lovebirds

Their eclectic taste in music was seen throughout the night from the Harpist at the ceremony, to their classic 1st dance routine with a twist of pop to the array of songs that guests danced to throughout the evening. And to top it all off Reid, who just so happens to be a very talented piano player and someone who has lived his life surrounded by his love of music, not only met the love of his life, but he now has his very own Melody.

When you think fast cars you think Ferrari – that’s exactly where our inspiration for Scott’s amazing 60th birthday soiree began. We really wanted to play off Scott’s love of sports cars by incorporating Ferrari red and the black and white of a checkered flag in a fun yet mature way to celebrate his 60th. Together with the creative team at Square Root and Scott’s wife Deanna, we took this theme to a whole new level!

Intertwined Events_Sultry 60th Birthday Intertwined Events_Sultry 60th Birthday This awesome 60 year old is showing no signs of slowing down so we made sure the party was the utmost in enjoying life in the fast lane. From a luxurious venue at Pelican Hill Resort, to delicious food and stunning decor – this event had it all.

Intertwined Events_Sultry 60th Birthday Intertwined Events_Sultry 60th Birthday The paper goods were fabulous! Using a charcoal gray card stock, the invitations were letterpresses with white ink and backed by a deep red pocket! You know when you received your invite you were in for quite a night!

Intertwined Events_Sultry 60th Birthday Intertwined Events_Sultry 60th Birthday Oversized dark custom furniture and blood red linens gave a nod to the masculine. While jaw-dropping chandeliers sparkled brightly and found a new home as centerpieces. Large mirrors flanked the space, making use of lighting in unique ways!  But that’s not all, we took acrylic tables, floated florals inside and used them for mini dessert displays! Delish!

Intertwined Events_Sultry 60th Birthday Intertwined Events_Sultry 60th Birthday It’s always difficult to choose a favorite part of any event, but the band takes the cake on this one! West Coast Music was amazing – offering such a wide variety for all ages of guests to enjoy! And boy did they – they danced the night away! It probably helped that all the guests were treated to a gourmet coffee cart and cigar roller at the end of the evening – Something for everyone!

Intertwined Events_Sultry 60th Birthday Intertwined Events_Sultry 60th Birthday Scott, you are one stand out guy and we could not be more delighted to help celebrate your 60th birthday!

Whether you’ve decided on a destination wedding or a spot closer to home, chances are you’ll have some guests coming in from out of town for your wedding. With people coming from all over, it’s beneficial to have a block of rooms available to your guests so they know they’re staying in a hotel that’s convenient to your venue. Organizing a room block may also offer a slight discount to the fee and allow you to take advantage of other amenities at the hotel.

Intertwined Events_Room Blocks If you’ve decided to organize a room block, it’s always nice to get in contact with hotels as early as you can. Once you’ve confirmed your venue it’s a good time to start looking. The number of rooms you need to block depends on how many out of town guests you anticipate having. Some hotels will charge a deposit or ask for a guaranteed number of rooms to be booked, be sure to underestimate if this is the case. 

Intertwined Events_Room Blocks How do you negotiate a room block?
There are many approaches to getting a room block – you can call around to hotels in the area, but some places may not have their rates posted. If you take this route, be sure you’re speaking to a sales representative at your local hotel, not a reservation agent at an 800 number, to ensure you have the most accurate information.

Another option is to utilize your wedding planner to assist. Planners work with the hotels frequently and can negotiate on your behalf to secure the best rate. If your wedding is in a city with a convention or visitors bureau, they may be able to help you contact the hotels and get a better discount, too.

Intertwined Events_Room Blocks A few things to remember when you’re blocking rooms:
Make sure you are aware when securing the room block of any minimum number of rooms required or deposits required. Consider price point when booking a room block and perhaps arrange for two in different price points to ensure you are accommodating your guests budgetary needs. Remind your guests of the cut off date – the business of the hotel means they need to be sure to offer any rooms that won’t be booked in your block to the public. The cut off will usually be a few weeks before the event, so encourage your guests to book early!

Intertwined Events_Room Blocks If you decide to forego a room block, we suggest you still include local hotels in your invitation suite so out of town guests who may be unfamiliar with the area know the most convenient places in relation to your venue.
