Fairy Godmother Weekend – Magical Monday

WOW!

That’s the first word that comes to mind when we think of the wild Fairy Godmother weekend that we just wrapped up.

The Fairy Godmother squad had SIX events between Friday and Saturday- that’s a record! 

Fairy Godmother A Wedding and Event Planning Company

To kick off the weekend, Fairy Godmother Denise held her event out in the water storage facility for the Kern Water Authority!

This event was dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the Kern Water Authority, and the passing of a Bill that would help the future of the water bank!

Kern Water Authority Kevin McCarthy

Congressman Kevin McCarthy made a visit to speak at the event.

As you may know, the Fairies work in all the elements… This event was set in the middle of the wetlands, which means we got to bring the entire space to life…

Mother Nature, however, saw this as the perfect day to bring Bakersfield some of the much needed rain and wind!

Don’t fret- John of the Kern County Water Authority whipped out some rainproof suits and we continued sprinkling magic!

Fairy Godmother TJ and Carlos set out to the marshes to cut some of the most perfect and fresh flowers, tulle and mayonnaise flowers!

Our Fairy Godmother Assistant Emily even weathered the storm with us!

Thank you, Emily for your help in the weather!

As luck would have it, we even got to experience a few flocks of the birds that inhabit the area, and why this event was so important- to protect the lands that keep our ecosystem in check!

As half of the Fairy Godmother squad loaded up and headed for the California Coast, Fairy Godmother Janet was preparing for her evening wedding!

Justin and Monica were wed at a little church on the outskirts of town and then held their wedding reception at the beautiful Kern County Museum!

The Museum is best known for the historic clock tower, known as the Beale Memorial Clock Tower. 

A little history behind the clock tower is that it was a gift to the city of Bakersfield from Truxtun Beale (once owner of Tejon Ranch) in memory of his mother, Mary Beale. The clock tower was dedicated in 1904 at the intersection of 17th and Chester. Following city updates and natural disasters, it was later restored, moved and re-dedicated at it’s current location in 1964.

We have seen rustic weddings, and this one was absolutely gorgeous, each detail was unique to the couple- SO fun!

Their aisle was covered with cow hides, centerpieces were vases made of pumpkins, and custom cups for guests to take home as a reminder of the events that day!

While half of the Fairy Squad was on the Coast, the other half was busy at home prepping their own events!

Fairy Godmother Marissa was out at a private residence with Fairy Godmother couple Trystan and Hazel…

WOW! Is all we have to say!

Guests were immersed into a blank slate that had been completely transformed for their enjoyment- the Fairy magic is always so fun to play with when a bride lets our team make their dream a reality!

We are SO incredibly lucky to do what we love, and to be trusted with these magical memories. 

If you’ve ever wondered what we will do for a client, here is your proof!

Near or far, we will pack up our fairy dust and make sure that your event is exactly as you’ve envisioned it. 

Allegretto Vineyard Wedding in Paso Robles – Magical Monday

We have said it before, and we will say it again… “Have Fairies, Will Travel!”

This past weekend, the Fairies packed up their fairy dust and headed over to the beautiful California coast-

Destination? The Allegretto Vineyard Resort in gorgeous Paso Robles!

As you may recall, just a few years ago we set out to the same area to use our magic on our dear friend Courtney’s magical day, and now we had the privilege of planning her dear sister Caitlin’s wedding!

Caitlin and Andy were a complete dream! 

Sprinkling magic and making sure that their wedding day was just as perfect as they had always dreamed was a true joy.

Every detail of this day was just as it should be!

You can always tell how much love there is when you see the amount of detail and thought the couple put into their guests’ wedding experience.

Oh, how the times have changed!

As generations evolve, wedding inspiration changes, too!

Forget the rice- how about steamers to wave as you celebrate the new Mr. & Mrs.!

(and much easier for cleanup!)

Of course, keeping things relative is also a very important element of any wedding day.

We are so honored to have seen not one, but both of the Ghilarducci sisters say “I do!” to their loves!

These are just the beginning of what we believe to be an entire series of photos of our gorgeous bride! 

Caitlin is here, rocking her dress from Allure Bridal and her (out of this world!) bouquet by the talented team from House of Flowers! 

Not to mention that we are still “oohing” and “ahhing” over this venue! 

Were we really just two hours away from home? Could’ve tricked us into thinking we were spending the day in Italy!

A wedding wouldn’t be a wedding without your best friends and family standing by your side(s)!

JEH Ranch Fall Wedding – Magical Monday

Another “Magical Monday” here in Fairy Land… We are so lucky to be in this “happy business!”

Ben and Brittney were celebrated by all of their family and friends at the beautiful JEH Ranch here in Bakersfield!

The day was captured by the talented Melisa Gilden Photography

JEH Melisa Gilden Fairy Godmother Wedding

JEH Ranch is a gorgeous outdoor venue located just ten minutes up Round Mountain Road. JEH Ranch is an established wedding and event venue right along the Kern River. 

There’s something special when your ceremony is even more personal than usual, this custom made cross crafted by the family made for the perfect focal point beyond our bride and groom.

We think that true love has many colors, but blush and navy are a gorgeous illustration of the love between Ben and Brittney. 

A gorgeous day could not have looked any better!

We also like to think that our Fairy Godmother grooms are some of the best looking gentlemen around! 

Check out Ben and his groomsmen, looking dapper with their navy tuxedos juxtaposed against the brown barn.

But wait… We think the same of our Fairy Godmother brides! 

Brittney and her girls were absolutely stunning, and rightfully so for such a magical day.

There are a lot of details that people forget to think about on a wedding day. 

Not so much those included, but for example, everyone knows there will be exchanging of rings (traditionally), but who will really get to see those rings? 

As Event Producers, we try to communicate with the photographers and stress the importance of detail shots! Many are ahead of the game and know exactly the vision they want to see, and we think that Melisa of Melisa Gilden Photography did it perfectly! 

We believe that these shots showcase the glamorous elements that will create this perfect union. 

JEH Melisa Gilden Fairy Godmother Wedding

Wedding day details are all around, we find it so fun to let the guests wander around and find the little surprises that the couple placed for them!

Thank you for trusting Fairy Godmother with your magical day, we are so excited to watch you grow together as Mr. and Mrs. Harmonson!

Kern County Museum Wedding – Magical Monday

The Fairies may be in Las Vegas, but that doesn’t keep them from dreaming of their past weddings!

Fairy Godmother Cassandra got to spend last weekend at the Kern County Museum at the Batey Gardens sprinkling her fairy dust for Destinie and Woody! 

The magic is in the details!

Family is one of the most important parts of the wedding day, but for Destinie and Woody it was even more!

Destinie’s cousin created all of their floral arrangements, aren’t they just stunning?!

More than details, we take great pride in the fact that Fairy Godmother is a family affair. 

Destinie and Woody’s officiant was one of Fairy Godmother Cassandra’s past grooms, from September 26, 2015, Josh Goforth!

We love when our younger guests are able to join in the wedding day excitement…

This face says it all… “Has anyone seen the rings?!”

 

How about this wedding party?!

Beautiful ladies in their matching robes and our dapper gents dressed to the nines, with such a great group, there was no better way to spend the day!

Kern County Museum Trout Fairy Godmother Wedding

Destinie and Woody even got to capture some of the love from their day, post-ceremony, atop the historic clock tower at the Kern County Museum!

A bride’s first look with her dad is one of the most memorable parts of her wedding day.  Louie and Destinie got their first look

Destinie and her dad, Louie, had their special moment before Louie walked Destinie down the aisle, and we think this photo sums it up best! 

What a tender moment that illustrates the love between a father and daughter.

Photography by the oh so talented Jessica Ellis, what a beautiful day to capture a wedding!

Thank you, Destinie and Woody, for trusting Fairy Godmother with your wedding day wishes, it was an absolute pleasure to be your Fairy Godmother!

Congratulations! You’re Engaged, Now What…? – Magical Monday

As you’ve been following our “Congratulations! You’re Engaged, Now What…?” series, we have finally arrived at your wedding day! 

You made it!

All the planning has now come full circle, one of the best days ever is upon you!

As you gear up to walk down the aisle today, it is time that we go over just a few very last minute details to ensure that your day goes perfectly!

Have someone in charge of making sure that you and your entire wedding party have eaten! 

Many times, while everyone is getting ready, there will be some sort of platter or tray that everyone can pick off of. By making sure that everyone has eaten you will help prevent any wedding day jitters that may arise. 

When getting your hair and makeup done, it is been found that it is best to wear a button up shirt or a special wedding day robe! This way you don’t mess up your hair or makeup by pulling anything over.

As far as details are concerned, it is best to send someone you trust to go check on the reception site! It is best that this gets done early on, or as early as possible, just in the event that there are any changes to be made. 

While everyone is getting ready, and even after, see if your photographer will take some candid photos of you and your family! These are the moments that you will cherish as they aren’t posed and show the special moments of your big day!

One of the most memorable moments before you walk down the aisle, the big dress reveal! Your closest guys and gals will love to see you in this special moment before you say “I do!”

Congratulations! You’re Engaged, Now What…? – Magical Monday

We are almost there!

If you have been keeping up with our “Congratulations! You’re Engaged, Now What…?” wedding planning series, you will know that we are now just a week out from walking down the aisle!

We have covered everything that you will need on your wedding day. Wedding dress, tuxedos, paper products, vendors… You are all set!

Now that we are in the last week of engagement, there are just a few little housekeeping items that we will go over to ensure that your day is just as you have always dreamed it to be.

Being in your last week, hopefully, you have received all of your RSVP responses so that you can adjust your seating chart accordingly.  This alleviates any awkward missing spots at tables, and definitely helps with wasted place settings as you should also give your caterer your updated guest count.  Take into consideration any children if your caterer will be serving a different meal for our younger guests.

Wedding day surprises can be fun, however, wardrobe malfunctions do not fall into this category! With your magical day just a week away, you want to be sure that you try on everything. We mean everything.  Jewelry, shoes, hairpiece, the whole nine yards just in case there is any sort of issue, you have some time to get it taken care of. 

Fairy Godmother Colleen

One week away means that your Fairy Godmother should have any and all items that they will need on your wedding day.  This goes for paper products, décor, and any other miscellaneous items that you won’t want to worry about on one of the most important days of your life!

Post wedding day means honeymoon!  Be sure to gather all of your required paperwork and necessary travel items so that you are ready to go as soon as you need to be! This goes for confirming reservations, having your house sitter lined up, printing any and all itineraries, and of course, making sure that you are all packed and ready to go!

Wedding at the White Horse Inn – Magical Monday

Wow! The Fairies are back at it, the Fall wedding season has officially kicked off, and this past week the Fairy Godmother crew loaded up and set out for a “Fairy Field Trip!” 

This field trip was sending the Fairy Godmother squad to the White Horse Inn for Andrea and Ian’s magical day!

White Horse Inn

Fairy Godmother Cassandra had the details in check and set off with her fairy magic in tow.

One of the best parts of being a Fairy Godmother bride, in our opinion, is that you get to be pampered while all your set up is done for you.

This means that you as the bride, or groom, get to enjoy everything on the day of your wedding without worrying about who is setting up your dream wedding. 

For Andrea and Ian, this was no different!

Between the staff at the White Horse Inn and the Fairy Godmother squad, the reception and ceremony sites were set and ready to go!

Who doesn’t love to “hoop and holler” after our Fairy Godmother couple say “I do?!”

Guests were encouraged to grab a noisemaker of a sort to share their excitement of the celebration.

Of course, before anyone gets the opportunity to walk down the aisle, your very own Fairy Godmother has to give you her approval and for our gorgeous bride, Andrea, to have one final fluffing of her wedding dress!

A sweetheart table wouldn’t be complete without florals and a few personalized touches!

Incorporating the wedding party’s color palette into the floral arrangements and decor was such a fun planning and design task for Fairy Godmother Cassandra.

Congratulations! You’re Engaged, Now What…?

As we continue on in our series, we are steadily approaching your magical day and we are now just three months away!

One of the most important options of your evening will be dinner if you are choosing to have a meal at your event.

You are on the downhill slide of your planning process, now it is time to go back and make sure that you finalize all of your options with your vendors… This includes finalizing your menu with your caterer. You want to make sure that in the year or so of planning that all of your desired options are still available, and still want you would like!

There are many aspects of your wedding day that everyone will remember, one of these is the food!

Fairy Godmother Caterers

Stockdale Country Club by Theresa Wooner Photography.

Some key things to remember when putting together, or finalizing, your wedding day menu would that you are not just the new couple, but that you are the host of the event to all of your guests. As hosts, you want to be sure that your wedding day menu appeals to everyone in attendance, as best as possible. 

Fairy Godmother Caterers

NV Catering by Shelli Renee Photography.

Another major aspect will be your timeline. It’s vital to keep in mind how you would like your day to flow, if you don’t want the bulk of your evening to be spent on dinner, consider your options and maybe revamp your menu a bit! Your day is completely customizable, make sure it is just as you want it.

Fairy Godmother Caterers

Too Fats Catering.

While all of these aforementioned aspects are crucial to your big day, there is one that is even more important to consider… Your budget! If you recall, when we first began this series we advised you to create a dream day budget that wouldn’t break the bank and gave you the ability to accurately price out all of your vendors. This will play a part in your menu, as well as your guest count!

Congratulations! You’re Engaged, Now What…? – Magical Monday

It’s another beautiful “Magical Monday” here in Fairy Land, and we are thrilled to continue sharing our wedding planning series, “Congratulations! You’re Engaged, Now What…?” with you!

This week, we are just four months from your magical day, and there are just a few things left for you to do before you get to say “I do!”

The four month mark is the best time to make sure you have ordered all of your print items.

Print items are far more than save the dates and invitations and are totally up to you and your creative mind.

Breaking the norm on wedding traditions can be challenging for some, but we want to help you ensure that your day is as original as you are!

One thing to always remember during your planning process is that you only have to do what you want, and should only have your day as you have always dreamed!

Another trend that is becoming more and more popular is allowing guests to drop a note or piece of advice into a box for the lucky couple to open at a later date, a fun way to personalize your day and maintaining that personal connection even after the wedding night has ended.

What about a wedding day program? That’s right, a detailed itinerary of each event to occur- which can be complete with names of those included in such. This also helps those trying to “wrangle” the persons involved for photos, etc. as your day transpires!

Personalized napkins? Dinner menus? Treat bags? The answer is always “YES!”

“Congratulations! You’re Engaged, Now What…?”

Wedding planning can be hard and stressful, but it doesn’t have to be! 

All of us here at Fairy Godmother believe that every couple deserves to have a magical experience while planning their big day, so we have created this guide to help keep you on track. 

We are still about 6 months away from your magical event, and that means it’s time to officially lock down your rental items! 

Rental items is more than just tables and chairs, it includes your dishes, flatware, and even centerpieces!

It’s crucial to have these things in your mind, maybe on a running list, so that you can ensure your event is just as you have always dreamed.

Most importantly, you want to be sure that you have enough of everything for your guests, you wouldn’t want anyone to have to stand during your ceremony because you didn’t have enough chairs, or if someone had to use plastic utensils while everyone else used the real deal. 

These are just the little things that us Fairies all think about!

According to Bridal Guide, you should order at least three to four dishes, glassware, stemware, and flatware per guest! Now, if you’ve never planned a wedding before, you may not have ever considered those numbers! When it comes to chairs, it is advised to order at least ten extra per location. This is in the event that any are damaged, and of course, if there are any extra guests!

When it comes to tables and chairs, many people forget to order the extras for all the fun stuff!

For example, your guestbook table, your welcome table, your cake table, maybe a sweets table, or even an “in memoriam” table!

The last thing we want anyone to do is to scramble last minute having to ask their Uncle Bob to bring a huge table in right before ceremony. 

Map out your ideal wedding, it’s 2017… All dreams are possible!

If you’d like some extra help in planning, it’s never too late to contact Fairy Godmother!
