20th Street Cottage Community Room – Fairy Godmother Friday

Do you ever find yourself trying to work from home, or a local coffee shop, and never finding the focus you need? 

We did, too! 

This issue is what got the wheels turning at our “happy place,” the 20th Street Cottage!

The struggle of meeting clients with loud coffee machines or constant “people watching” moments led us to revitalize the living room of the 20th Street Cottage, with the help of Jamie Urner of Jamie Urner Interior Design Studio, transformed the room into a “Community Room!”

The 20th Street Cottage Community Room is a rentable, sharable space that allows for creatives to meet with clients and vendors without the day to day distractions that the world throws into public settings.

These types of rooms are shared space that is there when they are needed, all without trying to have a conversation over blenders, the normality of a coffee shop, or other little nuances that may arise in public space. 

The community room at the 20th Street Cottage is a well-designed space that brings a professional edge to any entrepreneur who may not need their own full-blown office space. The purpose of a community room is to allow professionals the comfort of an office, without paying the office price.

The community room currently has an opening for you, come share space with us at the “happiest place in Bakersfield!”

Don Draper Meets Gatsby Wedding – Magical Monday

It was a very busy weekend here in Fairy Land. Just this last Sunday, after years together, Bailey and Thomas finally tied the knot with their Fairy Godfather by their side!

When the planning first began, Bailey had so many ideas from her past experience with the Fairy Godmother Company! While they did want a traditional wedding, they also wanted to be sure to add their very own personal touches to make their big day unique to their personalities and interests. So they did just that!

Merging the ideas and creative outlets of Don Draper and the classic theme of Gatsby, adding in some geometric shapes and accents, this wedding surely came together to appease their creative desires.

Bailey being a very hands on bride delved into many “DIY” projects, including but not limited to, painting yard decor flamingos and coloring pineapples to best fit their theme.

Vintage touches including holding a photograph of her grandmother on her wedding day in her bouquet, almost as close as she holds it to her heart.

Our groom, Thomas, enjoyed the day. While the bride is most often the center of attention, we want to remind everyone that the groom is just as important! Here, we caught Thomas having a silly moment during their first official photos as husband and wife!

Bailey and Thomas had the cutest flower girls, complete with their floral halos. But one other girl that Bailey holds near and dear to her heart is her dog, Maple. So it was no question that she would also be walking down the aisle.

It is a Fairy Godmother tradition for the bride to receive her very own Fairy Godmother hankie, to have just in case any happy tears may fall during the ceremony. Each Fairy Godmother, or Fairy Godfather, takes the time to write a special message to their bride, this is just one way that Fairy Godmother makes your day magical!

Sunday September 4, 2016 we were able to witness as two families came together to form one as we celebrated the marriage of the new, Mr. and Mrs. Freckleton!

With all eyes on them, Bailey and Thomas’ first dance was an absolute dream. The weather was perfect, and the ambiance of the entire wedding was encasing a beautiful moment that they would forever remember.

IMG_3222

Throughout the entire planning process, such a strong bond is created between a bride and her Fairy Godmother, in this case Fairy Godfather. When it comes to wedding day, and all the pieces come together to create the ultimate vision, it’s the job of the Fairy to ensure that all of the “moving parts” as we call them, connect together smoothly. From hankies to bustles, the Fairies are there for you.

We leave a little touch of magic, wherever we go. We were so fortunate to have been there for Bailey and Thomas on their big day, and great thanks to all of those involved from Bailey’s parents, to the bridal party for all they did to make Bailey and Thomas’ big day a magical success!

A low set table was the perfect addition for the guestbook. Subtle splashes of color, layers of antique laces and an acute placement of vibrant florals drew guests in with open invitation.

The vivacious florals by White Oaks Florist bring a bright and inviting feel to any setting. Florals provide height to open spaces where the landscape may lack taller, or shorter, objects. Animal bones and colored glass vases were the ultimate holder for the abundant floral arrangements.

Delicious desserts by GhilaDolci Bakery  were flawlessly baked and created to fit the most Bohemian of themes. Natural cakes with fruit accents tied the natural and bright color schemes together.

Many people often feel restricted to the traditional table setting, but if you are so inclined to add your own twist on your special day, you may as well do it how you want! For this “Boho” shoot, low table tops placed on cinderblocks was just the feel we desired!

Elements in aiding design go much further than just color schemes and themes, every detail has a rhyme or reason, allowing for meticulous execution. To aid in this, whicker highback chairs were added, providing a break in color and a little more height to the photograph.
