Dominican Republic Destination Wedding: Nikki & Malik

Hi friends!

We are really excited about the subject of today’s blog. As you know, MP loves destination weddings. One of the best parts of these weddings away is all the fun guests get to have in addition to the wedding day.

MP planned, designed and coordinated a beautiful wedding at the lovely Paradisus Palma Real Resort in the Dominican Republic. On the first night, we had the beach BBQ.

The décor was white linen and white chairs with orange, blue and green accents. We used the napkins and pillows to highlight these accents.

For seating, we used a mix of lounge seating and rectangular tables. The bamboo chargers and wooden lanterns were a beautiful complement to the décor.

We had a shoe check for guests to take off their shoes before stepping on the beach

The bride and groom also provided welcome bags. We really loved these and the bride and groom’s logo which was the theme through the weekend.

Guests were welcomed by a Dominican trio, who serenaded the guests with beautiful Dominican music.

Real Birthday: 60th Birthday Party in Johannesburg, South Africa

MP had a wonderful time planning and designing Mrs. Titilola Okupe’s 60th Birthday Party. The party was over two days. The first evening was an intimate dinner with family and close friends at the BICE Restaurant in Hyde Park. If you’ve never eaten at the restaurant, the food is quite amazing!!

The second evening was the main birthday celebration. We had the opportunity to transform a backyard into an all white, absolutely gorgeous affair for 30. If you know MP, you know we LOVE to do all white parties so we were absolutely over the moon! We used white as the base with crystal and silver accents. We then used some peach florals in the pool and some peach up lights for a small pop of color.

We worked with House of Décor and Events. They are very responsive, reliable, extremely professional and their décor is simply lovely! The beautiful and delicious all white cake was by Belle’s Patisserie.

Tiffany Themed Birthday Party

Hi friends!

Everyone knows we are in love with Darlington House; the Library upstairs is a perfect spot for all types of events.

We planned, decorated and hosted a Tiffany Themed birthday party for an absolutely beautiful person. The party was absolutely gorgeous and we had an amazing time. Anastasia at Darlington House was extremely helpful and made the planning process easy.

The celebrant asked her female guests to wear LBD (Little Black Dresses). The colors we used for the set up and decor were mainly white, black and blue.

Real Wedding: Christina & Eldra

Hi friends!

2014 has been an awesome year already; wedding season is almost in full swing. We hope to post more pictures soon.

Today, we would like to share a few pictures from the wedding of an absolutely awesome couple. Last year, we had the honor of coordinating Christina & Eldra’s wedding. They are an amazing and beautiful couple. We had a blast at their beautiful wedding! The wedding was held at College Park Marriott & Conference Center.

They are both doctors and therefore, we decided to use a hospital/doctor theme in the set up of the cocktail hour decor.

Thanks to Dotun Ayodeji for the amazing pictures :-)

The “waiting room” was the cocktail hour space; guests were asked to “check in” by finding their place cardsdoctor themed weddingdoctor theme party4k1c8186bride and groom place cardswedding guest book signagewedding photo book

Since the couple took amazing pictures with their wedding photographer, Dotun Ayodeji, during their pre-wedding photo shoots, they wanted to incorporate the pictures in their wedding. Therefore, we decided to incorporate the pictures in cocktail hour. We made “balloon chandeliers” and attached various pictures of the couple to the balloons. These were such a hit! The balloons were floating all around the cocktail hour space and the guests loved them!balloon chandeliercreative cocktail hour decorcreative cocktail hourpurple and pink cocktail hour

Guests also go to fill in their “prescriptions” while in the “waiting room”. Fun stuff! :-)medical doctor themed weddingwedding madlibspicture cocktail hour

The amazing BCG did the décor and lighting for the wedding reception. Absolutely beautiful!

Lego Themed Birthday Party in Johannesburg

We thought to start off the year with a few images from a fun birthday party we planned and coordinated in Johannesburg, South Africa. The children had loads of fun and so did we! There was so much to do; swimming, face painting, balloon sculpting and much more. There was also a Ferris Wheel for the children to ride and a magician to show some tricks! The space was decorated with the lego colors.
