Game Ball ~ David and Cheyenne Married! {Elk Grove Reginal Park & Strauss Island}

Cheyenne and David in love

In the art of Billiards their are so many dynamics and rules that make the game work. One must master both the talents and structure of the game to be able to master the game as a whole. Well for Cheyenne and David they figured them out in the art of Love. Cheyenne coming from a corporate background and David a Professional Pool player, these two seem very different. David has a care-free, easy going personality while Cheyenne is organized, structured and enjoys being a beautiful woman. When the two of them meet I’m sure they didn’t know they would have such a life changing effect on each other.

Getting to know David and Cheyenne was an absolute joy. Planning with them helped us learn what their priorities were and the overall feel they wanted for their wedding. One of the most important things they wanted was everyone to have fun and laugh. They had one of their good friends Pliny marry them. He was able to incorporate some of David’s cultures from his tribe as well. One of our favorite parts was their vows to each other. They were some of the funniest, light-hearted but intimate vows we have ever heard. Everyone laughed and loved their sense of humor. During that time David and Cheyenne made vows to each others kids to let them know they will always be there for them (insert tears here).

David and Cheyenne were married at Elk Grove Park on Strauss Island and continued to the Reception in the Pavilion. They wanted to incorporate nature with the beautiful tress and wild life around. Since David and Cheyenne live in Wilton on some acreage we thought this fit them perfectly. The wonderful Meagan of Christopher Kight Photographers was their photographer and took these beautiful pictures in this post. Thanks Meagan!

The happy family

Our rock star caterers were Nestor and Dawn of TLC Catering. We love working with them and love their “homestyle” food. Plus the staff is always, always awesome. Cheyenne and David have lots of family and friends that love them. During toasts you felt it but of course one of the goals for the night was to be sure we had laughter. David’s mom made sure to give a toast during open mic time and praise her new daughter in law and to mention how “lady-like” Cheyenne was when she met her and now she is one of the hardest workers on the farm and that she may have never mowed a lawn before they met but she can tear up any lawn now. She is now their main mowers on their acres of grass. 🙂

Sweet 16 birthday party

Abby’s Sweet 16 Birthday! {Elks Lodge – Old Roseville, CA}

Abby is such a sweetheart! Her mom Cindy wanted to throw her an amazing party (because she is amazing, naturally), she loves her so much. It was fun getting to know their family and working with them to see what we could do to make the night fun for Abby and her friends. We provided DJ and Photo Booth services with a few uplights. The color scheme: black and hot pink, Location: Elks Lodge # 2248 in Roseville, CA, Goal: to have fun!

The two of them would go back and forth when it came to songs, not because they disagreed but Cindy (mom) wanted Abby to pick what she wanted and not worry about the adult guests while Abby wanted to make sure everyone was happy (awesome teenager I know). One thing they could agree on was that they HAD to have some New Kids on the Block. 🙂 Here’s a few pics from the Photo Booth.
