Tami, owner of Apricot Lane Bakersfield, got her first taste of the Fairy Godmother company when she held her store’s 4 year anniversary event! The Fairy Godmother team stepped in to design and coordinate the event. Guests were greeted with bubbly champagne and shopping discounts in a festive atmosphere.

Bringing that “Fairytale Feeling” to all that we do, this anniversary party was no exception! Desserts and decor, what would be better?!

The friendship that began as a client’s open house for her store, turned co-team styled photoshoots that doubled as Apricot Lane marketing and wedding industry inspiration (as you may have seen on Bakersfield billboards), has blossomed into quite the partnership!

 When Eli, Tami’s now husband, popped the question- Tami knew just who to call!

Fairy Godmother Colleen loaded up her bags and fluttered her fairy wings all the way down to the San Diego harbor, Tom Ham’s Lighthouse to be exact! The lighthouse was home to so much history and fun things to see, inside and out!

Here is where past Fairy Godmother Yessi re-joined the team and assisted Colleen in spreading her magic for Eli and Tami.


This beautiful arch set the scene for our Fairy Godmother couple as they said their vows to each other.


Rehearsal for the big day was an absolute success! Both of Tami’s parents walked her down the aisle to the man of her dreams!



Fairy Godmother Colleen with Eli’s mother, having your parents and your Fairy Godmother together… What a treat!


Overlooking the San Diego harbor, Eli and Tami’s closest loved ones gathered to watch the two tie the knot! The love that filled the bay that day was overwhelming, with their families at their sides it is easy to say that it was one of the most perfect days!

The reception overlooked the San Diego harbor, dinner with a view does not get much better than watching the sun set over the water!

Who wouldn’t want to celebrate their favorite newly wed couple with gorgeous views of the harbor’s boats!



Tami had the most gorgeous bouquet, full of greenery and natural tones.


What wedding would be complete without a sweets table? Tami and Eli wanted to be sure that their guests satisfied their sweet tooth!



Whether it be an anniversary or a destination wedding, you can count on your Fairy Godmother being there! The Fairy Godmother team is so thankful to have been a part of Tami and Eli’s big day, and are forever thankful of the fabulous friendship that is ever-growing!
