B+V's lovely wedding in the IE

Here's our first story blog of the 2011 year, and I'm excited to share Ben+Vannessa's wedding photos, taken by Stan and Jeannette Liu of Trailbrook Photography. Held at the DoubleTree in Ontario, California (Inland Empire), this wedding had one of the most packed dance floors I've ever witnessed, thanks to DJ "Uncle" Eddie Cruz, the coolest DJ in the IE. From the hint of movie-themed details, to the bright fuchsia+purple color scheme, a super rad bridal party, an AMAZING same-day-edit by Loyd Calomay Films, and one of the most hard-working and sweetest couples, B+V's wedding proved to be another successful celebration.

B+V requested day-of coordination services from Bellz & Whistlez back in 2009. It wasn't until about a year later that B&W started communicating with the couple to secure the details of the event. The final week was spent helping the couple tie loose knots, making decisions on the logistics, finishing up paper goods, and finessing the final outlines for the event. It was a challenging week, but this couple worked diligently and quickly to help wrap up all that needed to be done, including the groom having to participate in another wedding the week prior!

We are so honored to have been a part of this event. To think we (all the vendors) prepped the room in just a little under two hours, with florals being assembled on-site by FloralWorks (San Diego) and the break down of an event earlier in the day, it was a pleasure to see it all fall into place nicely with a really short setup schedule. Cyril and I left with the dance floor still overflowing with guests, but I'm certain we all left knowing it was a lovely and special October night in the IE!
