A job hazard of wedding planning is that when you have been working with a couple for a long time, especially a couple as awesome as Rebecca and Lance, you feel a tremendous amount of pressure for the day to be even better than perfect. Mayra had been working with Lance and Rebecca, who own a lighting company named TinC, for the last 18 months. The night before the wedding, she was sending me emails and I could sense the tension level. "What's Wrong?" She said she'd just gone through the program and they thanked her..... right below thanking their parents. Needless to say, when I arrived on Site the next morning, this was literally her face...
I was much less worried. She's done an awesome job with the prep for the event and we had a great team in place. But I knew it was just because she wanted everything to go perfectly.... Studio 450 is one of our favorite places to work because it completely transforms. Here is some before.... Including Tinc setting up and Salome from our team folding napkins and tucking menu cards.
The ceremony was on site, which meant that we basically had to "turn the room" around.... We'd hired a Mariachi for cocktail hour, and went to sweep them up to the roofdeck, where cocktails were happening. The best moment of our day is probably when we see the bride and groom head down the aisle!! In this case, there was still a ton to do..... Since Lance and Rebecca have their own lighting company, some of the guests were helping with the lighting transition! I've never seen girls in dresses on trusses before! Vanessa from Verde Flowers and her team did an amazing job with the flowers, which, set on top of the steel grey pintuck, looked both spring like and modern.
Of course, the real star of the show was the lighting... which was amazing. THey used a mix of squares and rectangles and we cut the room up a bit with some pipe drape, which of course, was lit.
Mayra had done such a great job and everyone was enjoying DJ Serious so very much.... well, the day ended great and Mayra was clearly very happy. The rest of the pics are up on our FACEBOOK page.
