We completely transformed the film studio into a Mexican plaza for a super sweet bride with tons of style. I wish I had professional photos, but I don't so I will share my pics from my pocket camera. This first picture of the cocktail hour bar SO does not do the look justice and the colors are wonky, but the entire area was so cool. I made all those medallions and must have used over 100 pieces of non SU! 12" x 12" card stock. And can I say "not all card stock is created equal. Buy Stampin' Up! it's WAY better." The second photo is of one of the cocktail hour tables. These were so festive and with the florals being designed in the cheapest containers ever! They looked super fab.
For a focal to the reception we constructed a facade. We started with some photos I took of an old adobe home in New Almaden, an early mining community of San Jose, and built a corrogated roof over columns. We added kiwi vine and orchids along with bromeliads and palms to finish the look. This was AMAZING. I only wish I took the photos before the band arrived and started setting up their equipment.
Throughout the ceiling we strung market lighting, oversized umbrellas, and papel picados in a variety of the brides colors. I wish I had a picture of the entire room, but I don't, but it truly was fabulous.
