What I liked about Sherilyn and Ryan’s wedding

Working with Sherilyn and Ryan on their wedding was a fantastic experience, not only because she is extremely talented and creative – and he is wonderful, but also because she’s very sweet and a lot of fun. I truly enjoyed every single minute of my relationship with them.

Sherilyn designed the entire wedding around the Roaring Twenties, with a vibrant gold – gray palette enhanced by metallic accents and glamorous feathers and glitter, Every single details was taken care of, from the flapper dancers to the vintage getaway car. It looked like we were all transported back in time for an entire day. Here’s the invitation that she created with an art deco design. Yes, she did it!

Dresses, suits and all the accessories matched the style of the day.

The couple selected The Prado at Balboa Park for their celebration and they said “I do” under a crystal chandelier at the Casa Del Rey Moro Gardens.

After the ceremony, the entire wedding party went around town for pictures on a vintage trolley.

Escort cards were attached to mini Champagne bottles with feathers in different colors corresponding to the guest’s entree choice. Sherilyn and her bridesmaids glittered each bottle and tied each card. The results were impressive!

The festivities continued in the Ballroom where the sparkle and glam grabbed every guest’s attention. Tall and low centerpieces featured delicate flowers embellished with beads, glitter, and feathers. Table numbers were glittered in silver and candles had rhinestone bands.

Sherilyn designed all the paper items from the menu card to the event program and finished them with brooches and feathers.

Right before the grand entrance, a group of flapper dancers performed and introduced the newlyweds.

The evening was filled with happiness and fun, and Matt with Choice Entertainment kept the guests dancing all night.

Guests loved the photo booth!

The dessert table was 12 feet long and it had different types of sweets. The cake was an exact replica of the Stanley Cup (Ryan is a huge hockey fan). More about the dessert table in the next blog post.

Congratulations to the couple, it was a privilege to be part of their special day!
