Made it through - thank you

Event Map for Wedding Celebration
     The fruits of my labors over the last 3 months finally paid off. Joellan & Chris had a fabulous wedding celebration. I had a fantastic group of helpers to set-up and break down the party.

     The set-up team worked from 12:00 pm on Friday up until 8:00 at night. Helpers performed a variety of tasks like loading the van, unloading the van, fluffing paper starburst poms, to arranging tables, hanging many things from the 9'-6" ceiling (lots of trips up and down the ladder), ironing the white chair covers, putting the linens on the appropriate tables, making sure every paper lantern had a light in it, unpacking all the props and goodies and providing lunch & a coffee break to all.

     The party was a huge success - Joellan & Chris were delighted and guests were as well. Majestic PhotoBooths provided 3 hours of unlimited photographs in their booth. Furniture was rented from Chicka Chicka Boom Boom which is connected with Great Drape.
     The breakdown consisted of party goers (family & friends) that stayed behind to help pack up. I directed the game "put like things together", all paper lanterns together, all lights together, etc.. It went far faster than the set-up, as break downs usually do. The bartender Denny waited for as long as he could stand and then let me close up the hall. This hall looked unlike it ever had. Here are before and after pictures of the space.

So a BIG HUGE THANK YOU to all those that helped - from fluffing paper poms to picking up the beer kegs & wine and all the little & big things in between. Your help was needed and deeply appreciated. Thank you, you are AWESOME!

  1. Chelsea, you are amazing! Matt and I had such a blast! It felt like we got a taste of being a guest at our own wedding, which of course was also unlike any other! We love you!

    I just adore those before and after pictures!

  2. Chelsea, you are amazing! Matt and I had the time of our lives! We felt like we got a taste of being a guest at our own wedding, which of course was its own incredible creation! Thank you for yet another fantastic party!

  3. I think the highest acknowledgment was Joellan saying she couldn't sleep the night AFTER the party just staying awake remembering it all!

  4. Thank you! It was an event I'll never forget and the room was amazing and the whole evening was so much fun. Julie and I laughed so hard in the photo booth!
