Sleek and Chic Spring Wedding

Last weekend I had the incredible honor and responsibility of coordinating and designing a wedding reception for 450 people, in a shopping center with three separate large rooms.  This was by far the largest and most daunting task I have taken on.  Thank goodness the bride had a lot of great ideas and supplies collected for the event.  My job was to take those ideas and supplies and make them cohesive and fabulous.  My personal style always leans more vintage then modern, so creating a sophisticated contemporary reception was a little bit nerve wracking. 

I was lucky to have several incredible helpers for the set up of the event.  I couldn't have done it without them!  The bride's father was especially helpful.  He built the huge flower wall we used in the entrance.

Here is a sneak peak of pictures taken by the incredible Danielle Davis Photography.  I swear to you, they are TO DIE!!  I have some of my own snap shots and hope to get those posted asap.  Until then, enjoy this yummy eye candy!

Peter Rabbit Birthday Shindig

So this wasn't an official "M.Eisele Events" production, because I wasn't paid or hired for this gig. But, I did have the pleasure of putting together a Peter Rabbit inspired party to celebrate my middle son's second birthday. I wanted to use as many natural and "real" elements as possible to help give it a fresh, garden feel. All of the centerpiece items came from the garden or grocery stores. I searched all over town for carrots with the natural green stems attached. Turns out the third store is the charm! I bought them out completely. :) And of course, had to have radishes, as those are what little Peter got sick on in Mr. McGregor's garden.

Happiest of Birthdays to "Our Little Cottontail"! You are the best addition to our life that we never knew we needed! I thank God every day for bringing you to our family.

Fall Couples Shower

This weekend I had the pleasure of helping my wonderful neighbor with a Fall outdoors theme couples wedding shower.  The groom is an avid duck hunter, so in order to make him and the other guys feel comfortable, I included ducks into the design of the event starting with the invitation and carried throughout in small details. It was easy to incorporate the ducks into our design scheme of outdoors, fall colors and pumpkins.

Sweet Southern Wedding

What a sweet wedding!  This was a favorite project of mine, from the rustic burlap, lace and mason jars to the contemporary silver trees and vases, I loved every detail.  I worked with the bride to bring her vision of a "sweet, southern" backyard wedding with personal touches and a mix of casual and contemporary to life.  We went with a color scheme of silver, chartruese, tan and white.  I designed all of the florals to have a casual, just picked from the garden feel.  They were very budget friendly and helped in making the feeling of the event come to life.  We served a specialty drink, "The Real McCoy" during a short cocktail hour before the ceremony.  (The newlyweds last name is "McCoy") ;)

Dinner was served under a wooden arbor draped with vintage lace panels.  The buffet was draped in burlap for a casual feel, and food was served in silver and wood pieces for a mix of the elegant and casual.  I created a sweets bar out of a vintage cabinet.  Southern pies were served as well as three unique mini cakes and red velvet cupcakes.  For the drink station I used another vintage painted piece and we served drinks out of diy embellished mason jars.  What southern wedding would be complete without lemonade and sweet tea?

Derick and Lauren are a beautiful couple, inside and out.  I had a wonderful time collaborating with Lauren and her mother-in-law Carla on this special day.  I wish the happy couple a lifetime of happiness!
