We had the pleasure of being part of a charming rustic wedding at Heaven’s Ranch in Chino Hills, CA.

A lovely bar area was created by using our 2×8 Vineyard Cocktail Tables. Using vintage looking bottles and jars as vases to keep the rustic vibe going.

Our Mason Jars were the perfect beverage dispensers for this rustic themed event, working along side our Embassy Glassware Collection. 

For the ceremony, we used our Padded Folding Chairs and mix matched our Natural Finish with our Fruitwood Finish. Lined up perfectly, creating a beautiful pattern complementing the gorgeous natural background. The reception featured our Tuscan Farm Tables with our Vineyard Crossback Chairs surrounding an Oak Wood Dance Floor.

This past weekend a very hip couple had a vibrant and fun wedding reception at one of the premiere event venues in Pasadena. In collaboration with the event’s lighting company, our event coordinator provided layouts for both the ballroom dining area and cocktail hour on the terrace.

Silver chiavari chairs and 60” round tables provided, dressed with silver swirl. 12’ high aubergine shimmer crush fabric paneling backed the cake area and stage and in front of the black seamless dancefloor. Outside on the terrace white lounge sectionals, benches and our specialty white tufted Bella Bourne sat on white shag carpet. White fur paneling uplit behind the bar was custom manufactured for the event. All the décor, lighting and design elements made for a memorable Beatles themed celebration.

This past weekend a wedding reception was held in a beautiful court yard of a historical Tudor/Tudor Revival Architecture Estate. The event’s tablescape included gold rimmed Bella stemware, Gold Savoy flatware, and Paradise china and peach napkins. Surrounding each 60″ round table were gold chiavari chairs with peach cushions, which were manufactured for the event. Our glass beverage dispensers were filled with delicious lemonades; cucumber mint, watermelon rosemary, and  pomegranate orange. Crystal flutes from our Pure line were also on site for champagne service. 100 cup coffee urns kept the coffee and tea hot for dessert.

Turquoise and lace and florals made for an exceptionally cute and quaint wedding reception for a young couple this past weekend. Turquoise with white lace overlay dressed the round reception tables. Ivory colored Venice china added contrast and pop set on top of the white lace and turquoise and Rosette, with its swirls and florals, complimented the white overlay. The curvy, crystal, Gatsby Champagne Coupe provided guests with toasting glasses come toast time. Matching white chair slips with turquoise sashes provided seating around each table. Fun DIY elements of the event design included reappropriated picture frames acting as table number holders and a festive candy bar built with fun apothecary jars, and a rustic wedding arch garnished with some glass bling. The whole event setup captured the traditional tea party essence.

A couple going for a ‘top-of-the-world’ feeling got hitched at a Tuscan estate atop a knoll of rolling vineyards in the Santa Monica mountains. They  tied the knot 2,000 feet above sea level on a stone helipad overlooking the surrounding mountain peaks and park lands. Rows of crisp white chiavari chairs wrapped the contour of the circular stone platform, all facing the decorated wedding arch. The reception was held on the home’s hilltop patio which was draped with white sheer  accented by our 2 tier crystal chandeliers. Beautiful plumes of ivory hydrangeas towered above the banquet tables.

A lovely dinner party was hosted this past weekend under a translucent 30’x30 clear top tent. Sidewall kept the slight evening chill at bay while a warm color scheme of gold and cream dressed the event. 6 72″ tables were dressed in custom swirl linens and accompanied by gold resin Chiavari chairs and ivory cushions. Our crystal stemware, and subtly gold finish gold flatware were used in the table design, very nice pieces if you’re dressing to impress. White flower blossoms accented the light pink napkins and were incorporated into each table’s centerpiece; consisting of gold square water basins with floating tea lights and additional blossoms. The dining vignette remained unoccupied until dinner, giving time for the sun to set and the swirl projection patterns to emerge and add a dramatic element to the entire design.

A local hilltop estate hosted a fabulous 50th birthday party on a warm spring evening. This client’s request for the golden birthday celebration was a color scheme of black and gold. Our event coordinator came up with an awesome rustic design with elegant accents using some of our newer inventory.

Square tables arranged amongst the home’s hilltop yard gave guests the option of dining with a view of the valley below, poolside, or under our lovely Vineyard Cabana. Rustic burlap linens draping to the floor covered square tables set with black napkins, gold beaded chargers, and glassware. Black chiavari chairs were dressed with gold organza chair sashes done up in a very hip side bow. Red rose centerpieces complimented the yard’s rose bush garden and a petite Godiva chocolate box. Dinner was served on ornate Paradise dinner plates.

While the home’s entire backyard had scattered dining groupings, the head tables for the event were set under a beautiful mahogany cabana. The frame was accented with faux vineyard ivy and the back wall and top were draped with more gold organza, allowing the breeze to pass through.  Three sparkling crystal Luciana Chandeliers hung over each of the tables under the cabana.  Our cabana is a versatile event item we can custom build to any size needed.

The chiavari chairs and crystal chandeliers added a perfect accent of elegance to the popular rustic undertones of the Florentia Cabana and burlap linens. Two themes that are looking to be very popular this season.

Shabby Chic’s still a hit this year! A local couple went all out with loads of burlap, fresh pine accents, tons of rustic furniture and accent décor. The idea was to create a truly theatrical and engaging, old timey, pine forest ceremony and reception. Adding even more to the event design was the venue; the remnants of a 1900’s turn-of the century ranch. The compound contains original barns, garages, farm equipment,  machinery, and buildings housing artifacts depicting the life and times  from the era.

The ceremony was held outside in a courtyard between the old wooden garage and antique tack room. Mahogany chiavari chairs were arranged in front of the garage. Country throw rugs created the aisle runner accompanied by pine creek style row accents. The alter area was backdropped by the large, weathered barn doors and a furniture grouping of a vintage dresser, wall mirrors and two petite pine trees in burlap wrapped pots.

The cocktail area utilized more vintage furniture. Wood tables with themed tablescapes atop more throw rugs were set up for cocktail hour.

The reception was help inside the venues banquet hall.  Equally accented as the ceremony and cocktail areas, the round and rectangle tables were all tablescaped with the same decorative elements as the rest of the event; centerpieces were built of woodcraft items, pine cones, white candles, antique books, and more burlap. Round silver chargers and gunmetal grey napkins with flatware and accompanied by a burlap and pine name tag made up each table setting.   The grandiose head table had the most elaborate of the décor and set directly behind it was rustic furniture grouping that looked like a scene from a warm, cozy forest cabin.

When your wedding’s guest list grows to 500, the task of planning the grandiose reception rises exponentially. Taking on their first wedding, The Noise Academy production team planned, prepped, and coordinated all the logistics for the event; and everything went off without a hitch.

A 21,000 sq ft banquet hall in the L.A. Convention Center was used as the venue for the large gathering. To transform the look and feel of the event space, 6,500 linear feet of crisp white satin draped the perimeter of the reception area. LED up lighting on the satin created vibrant columns of light, giving a dramatic  effect and enhancing the rather humdrum walls . Custom 15-foot high drapery panels were manufactured to properly reach the height of the hall.

The event design consisted of a large dining area, dance floor, elevated head table area and band stage.

Seating was built around round and long banquet tables topped with white linens and accompanied by gold chiavari chairs with white cushions.  Topping the center of each round table was a gorgeous 4-foot high cherry blossom branch propped up in a faux moss filled box planter. Hanging from the center pieces were crystals and glowing frosted lanterns.

Across the banquet tables were larger variations of the cherry blossom décor.  Large, bamboo arbors running the lengths of the 16-foot, double wide banquet tables supported more branches, blossoms and lanterns.

Hovering above the dance floor were massive, 10-foot orbs which acted as projection canvases for the couples initials and a slideshow.

When planning a reception for hundreds, every task becomes more cumbersome. As a one stop rental support resource, let A1 Party supply all your event equipment and rest assured everything arrives on time.

Entering into a lifetime commitment with that special someone you have decided to spend the rest of your life with calls for an unforgettable celebration which called for a custom installation.

Building a wedding reception from the ground up creates a truly custom and unique event design. This grandiose reception was held atop a grassy knoll overlooking the city below. Out front of the 100’x 80′ pole tent, guests enjoyed cocktail hour amongst a garden themed reception area with picket fencing, shrubberies, crisp white floral arrangements and lounge groupings.

Upon entering the tent guests were met with theatric sight of the tent’s captivating white satin ceiling liner; which was pleated and emblazoned with wedding swirl patterns blasted by red Leko lights. Wall to wall flooring covered the entire tent floor and white satin drapery ran the perimeter of the sidewalls; creating a beautiful backdrop from floor to ceiling.

The head table sat atop a 2-foot skirted and draped stage adorned with white floral arrangements and a white rosette table linen.

Guests sat at square, round, and banquet tables tablescaped with an ornately dressed Manzanita trees,  atop maroon rosette table linens with Belmont chargers and Kent silverware.

Trussing encompassing the white dance floor came alive with intelligent lighting blasting colorful led shapes and patterns all around the room.

It’s no secret, the better the venue, the less ‘covering up’ you have to do in the prep work. With a view like the one at Vista Manor in the calm foothills of Glendora, Ca, the last thing one would want to do is drape the backyard perimeter. Instead of the problematic trashcan area, unpainted wall, or unkept neighbor’s backyard which would usually require sidewall or drapery to mask; this venue’s back yard sits hillside 250 feet above the Glendora Country Club’s back 9. Nothing but an unobstructed view of a beautifully landscaped golf course makes for a wonderful view, and a picture perfect sunset. If you would like to celebrate your wedding or special occasion at this spectacular venue call our showroom for details.

There’s nothing better than dinner and a show. And what better way to host a fundraiser (to encourage guests to donate) for a good cause than with a fancy, theatrical, ballroom setting; over the top catering; and an elegant orchestra to entertain.

This annual college scholarship fundraiser included over 850 guests. Attendees were welcomed outside the venue at custom sign-in and hors d’oeuvres canopies. The custom tents were draped and ruched with grey voile satin with complimenting Onyx chandeliers. The canopies were grey by day, while LED’s illuminated them vibrant reds and blues after sunset.

The adjoining cocktail area had gunmetal grey linens on hi-boys and tables with black chiavari chairs. The tables were dressed with floating tea lights and fresh cut roses atop mirrors. Later in the evening during intermission, the foliage surrounding the outside cocktail area was up lit a vivacious green and large block letter spelling out ‘DINNER RALLY’ lit crimson red.

Inside the venue, guests were meant to feel as if they were part of the show. The live performers setup ground level in front of the venues stage giving the dining and performance a sense of being one and the same. Engaging and vibrant stage lighting accented both performers and guests alike. Giant Roman centerpieces adorned with ivy and roses sat atop the outer most tables.

Upon arriving at their tables, an almost overwhelming plethora of picture perfect culinary delights greeted guests.  All the tables were dressed with Nova silver swirl linens, burgundy crush satin napkins, and silver and black chiavari chairs. To give the floor layout a uniform look, the 72 66″ round tables and over 850 chiavaris were meticulously arranged exactly 5 feet apart from each other. VIPs got a bird’s eye view of the event at equally ornate and catered banquet tables atop the mezzanine.

The spectacular dinner rally had a great turnout. The expected attendance number was only two thirds of the final count. A great time for a good cause with an awesome turnout always ends on a high note.

While less traditional than a modern, polished and shiny wedding, a rustic chic theme adds nostalgic chimera of country weddings past. Going this route gives the planner (whether it be the happy couple or a coordinator) the fun DIY  task of perusing boutiques, craft and antique stores for aged decor and accessories for their big day.

This hillside wedding went the homespun route not for the fun of the money saving do it yourself part, but because they were fortunate enough to have access to a venue already themed as such. A quaint community of homes on  a local hillside shared a communal grassy meadow already decorated with dream come true country style furnishing; items that production companies rent for big bucks, this couple hit a homerun.

The couple’s ceremony was held right smack in front of the glade’s scenic view of the valley below. Lined in rows in front of the a rural wrought iron wedding arch draped with weeping willow branches were fruitwood folding padded chairs with reclaimed china used as ‘reserved’ signs.

The wining and dining was held off to the side of the ceremony area. Guests dined at round garden tables donning a complimenting blue/pastel blue dotted linens and white, tulip-backed bistro chairs. Rustic furniture accents dotting the event included an old mail box, an old wooden outhouse (the one with the little moon shape on the door), and the bar was fashioned out of a aged turquoise workbench. The head table was a weathered country dining table with spindled and coved legs and tufted padded antique chairs.

The 1950’s inspired pastel blue scheme on the tables and aged turquoise furniture decor paired well with the mid century black and white checkered dance floor

If you’re lucky enough to have a private venue a friend or family member can lend you to use save; some bucks and use it! And if that venue happens to be decorated with this one of this season’s popular themes, tell anyone who asks, that  was EXACTLY why you chose the place.

What do you get when you cross an awesome hillside backyard with an up-and-coming event designer?…….An AWESOME silver, sparkly, and unforgettable wedding reception setup.

A beautiful estate played host to a young couple’s sensational after party. The dining area sat poolside under a 60′ x 20′ canopy with twinkle light and sheer white swagging; a 3-tiered faux crystal chandelier; and LED up-lighting. The dining arrangement used silver chiavari chairs with turquoise organza sashes, round silver chargers,  turquoise napkins, and silver swirl linens. Center pieces made of white and cream flower arrangements in matching turquoise and silver, sparkly boxes and topped with a Manzanita tree gave the tablescape dimension and height.

Setting the sweetheart table atop a small stage gives even the farthest seated guest a clear view of the VIP’s. Helping draw more focus to the newlyweds were sheer draping and faux crystal strings illuminated by a LED light bar.

The versatile wooden arbor can match any event color scheme with a quick change on the draping and make for excellent lounge vignettes. Fancy receptions can mean fancy high heels ; and having a little nook with soft seating to relax on can be a life saver. The event had an all-white draped arbor. Inside was a square faux chandelier, long chairs, ottoman and coffee tables. Accenting the seating were turquoise pillows and a vintage vase and cigar box. The light up libation station served drinks from under a second, matching arbor. The silver and turquoise color scheme made for a very Southwestern feel.
Across from the lounge was the cake and buffet stations. Donning their own wedding dresses of sorts, the venue’s patio awning was dolled up and draped with foofy white sheer and table bunching; atop with a color-coordinated candy buffet, a one-of-a-kind- wedding cake, and sleek roll-top chafers sat.

Amongst the Southwestern silver and turquoise backyard transformation, the blissful couple had a great night. Young children ran energetically amongst the legs of socializing, bolo tie and cowboy hat wearing gentlemen, dolled-up damsels danced poolside, and the sound of festive, tuba-heavy Banda music bumped heavily into the chilly hours of the night.

A local university held an annual student orientation in the campus’s quad on a sizzling afternoon. Keeping the students cool and providing shade was a twin peaked, 120x 60 bail ring pole tent 6 Way Cool evaporative air coolers. Guests helped themselves to hors’ devours, a champagne fountain and other goodies while socializing at cocktail tables donned with teeny little collegiate themed centerpieces.

None of the available buildings on campus were large enough to accommodate the crowd, and with temperatures in the 90’s no shade or cooling units would have made the task of keep the new students comfortable impossible.

Popular for their versatility and modularity, canopies can provide coverage for large events, using multiple sizes, canopies can accommodate odd shaped layouts. But there are limits to the width of a single one. A canopy tent can be as long as one would need it to be, but once needs go be 40 feet wide, two options arise; both with differing look and functionality. One is a structure tent (see Clearly Not Your Ordinary Tent) and the second is a bail ring tent (see also Pole Tent Wedding Reception With A Clear View).

Structures are modular, have an overall higher ceiling, normally require heavy machinery and a wide open area to construct. Bail ring pole tents have set size parameters, give a distinguished shape and look from the inside and out, are easier to set up and require multiple guy lines for stabilization. If you are looking to tent an event that is going to have lots of colored up lighting or gobo designs, consider a pole tent for its contour. The peaked ceiling looks amazing when blasted with colored LED’s and light stencils.
