Recovered Dreams

Renae and Gene – October 15, 2011

Renae and Gene are my last couple that we assisted from the Old Richland Schoolhouse closure. This couple was so devastated by the closure that they took their story to the media. Allies Party Rental, was working with them as their coordinator and together, we knew that we’d be able to give them something even more special. During our meetings, we sat out on the Stixx patio, drank wine, and enjoyed the ambiance while we thought up ways to recover their dreams. When the day finally arrived, the weather could not have been more perfect; clear skies and warm sun. With record breaking temps just days before, the high of 77 was more than welcome. However, nothing was more radiant than the bride’s smile. Simply stunning! The bridesmaids wore royal blue satin dresses that were punctuated by beautiful burgundy bouquets created by Spendid Sentiments: (mysplendidsentiments.com). Allies party rental outdid themselves with the market lights and lanterns hung over the patio (www.alliesparty.com). The interesting color scheme of khaki, burgundy and royal blue really came together through the floral centerpieces and well placed accents. Check out the candy table! The groom made the sign, “Love is Sweet”. The yummy cake was provided by Edelweiss (www.edelweissbakerysandiego.com).

With the work of amazing wedding vendors, and the warmth of family and friends by their side, Renae and Gene ultimately received the wedding of their dreams. Congratulations to you both.
