Japanese Friendship Garden

A sweet and simple wedding with a touch of fusion flair. The bride and groom poured personal touches into the entire wedding from handmade invites to string versions of their favorite rock songs for the processional to hand painted escort cards. The ring bearers had the cutest "nests" and a delicious chocolate buffet added unique touches to the wedding. Meal stations surrounded the reception giving the guests options of cuisine to include the bride and grooms favorite food of street tacos. Concepts Event Design did a beautiful job of simple but stunning lighting with swagging white fabric.
