Darr Wedding Reception – Fairy Godmother Friday

Hello, wedding season! 

To kick start our favorite time of year, we got to celebrate with planning Lauren and Matt’s wedding reception!

While being Bakersfield natives, Lauren and Matt relocated to the East coast post-high school to pursue their education and careers. They had an intimate wedding with close friends and family in Florida but still wanted to host an event for them to celebrate with friends and family in their hometown.

This is where the Fairy magic comes in!

 Since attending high school with two members of the Fairy Godmother family, we were over the moon ecstatic to plan this event!

While our Fairy Godmother couple did most of their planning from afar, every visit felt like we had just seen them. There was an instant connection, and we are thrilled that Lauren let us take the reigns to make her vision a reality. 

The reception would take place at Temblor Brewing Company, a modern blank slate that would give Fairy Godmother Cassandra a canvas she had big plans for. Including, but not limited to, the hashtag applique that was in the entry way for guests to see as they arrived.

 First off, with a little help from our friends at Walker-Lewis Rents, we were able to have Paradise Balloons lighten up the air space with bright colored balloons! This allowed for the “ooh-ahh” reaction when guests first arrived!

The tables were complete with polka dot table runners, tissue pom-poms, assorted glassware complete with a variety of colored fairy lights! All the proper items for such a bright and happy event!

A custom-made photo backdrop was one of the more popular spots for guests as they were able to mingle and reminisce amidst the vibrant pinwheels and colored accents on the foil background.

No Fairy Godmother event is complete without treats and sweets! A “create your own pub mix” station, a sweets table with macarons, cake pops, brownies by GhilaDolci Bakery and mini donuts!

Aside from the live band, guests were entertained by CB Caricatures!

 There is very little that could be more entertaining than having a cartoon version of yourself drawn in just minutes!
