August 2017 Window Display
Our August 2017 window, designed by Marjorie Perez of Something Planned Events is inspired by the warmth of summer and aspirations of the perfect wedding. Dream catcher-inspired mobiles using intricate laces and motifs of sand, florals and weathered decor creates a relaxed  scene. The custom canopy gives off a boho vibe for outdoor events. Special thanks to Justin Buettner Photography for the photos.

Perez was in high school when she started creating memorable experiences. Later as a full-time Legislative Assistant she had the urge to p lan events. Now over the past 20 years, she has coordinated everything from weddings to Quinceaneras to baby showers.  And she has received past Professional of the Year and President’s Awards from the Association of Wedding Professionals International.

What she loves about planning are the initial stages of learning what a couple would like.  But the biggest reward Marjorie says is the end of the night, “when it has all come together and the couple’s dream has come true, but most of all they have truly enjoyed their big day.”

Marjorie finds inspiration in all things, from everyday items to nature. And even though she could go anywhere in the world, her favorite place to be is with her family, including her three children who are also part of Something Planned Events. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with family, relaxing and cooking.

As a young child, Justin was always making videos and shooting images of his toy Star Wars action figures. He went into cinematography when he lived in Los Angeles, and then became Head of Graphics for right out of college. He has been primarily a wedding photographer the last 13 years, which is something he loves – working with people. He loves their stories and their personalities.

One thing you will notice about Justin that he’s a people person, which his clients love because he asks a lot of questions and learns about them. He believes there is something to learn from everyone he meets.

.With experience comes some great insight. Justin advises, “I would say meet with multiple photographers because personality matters with this hire (photographers are around you a lot on the wedding day). Make sure you see a complete body of work and not just look at the highlight reel that is the portfolio page. It is important to see how a photographer handles a whole wedding day and how they handle different types of lighting conditions.”
When Justin isn’t off shooting in some beautiful Pacific Coast area, you will find him playing with his kids, playing basketball, drawing or planning his next great white shark cave diving excursion.

Summer brings on sun-filled weddings by the shore and beach beautiful brides walking in the sand. For our July 2017 window we wanted to bring that summer spirit with beach-themed decor by Shari Wise, owner of Events by Wise and captured by Carmen Salazar-Burke of Carmen Salazar Photography. Whether it’s Monterrey, Maine, Hawaii, Mexico or some other exotic beach locale, the sound of waves and fresh sea air calms your soul and rejuvenates your mind. Two things all brides want.

Owner, Events by Wise

Shari may have started a professional career in accounting and human resources, but it was 6 years ago when she planned her daughter’s wedding that she realized she had another calling as an event planner. But she’s always been a planner at heart. Even as a child she organized and coordinated the neighborhood kids to put on skits and plays.

Now as a full-time planner, who loves Hawaii, country music and oldies, she enjoys working with couples that have similar tastes and strives to make each couple’s event as perfect as possible. Her reward is knowing she is taking away a couple’s stress and helping them enjoy their wedding day. She started my business out of her LOVE for weddings.  “I want everyone to be able to have the best wedding possible!  I want all their family and friends to enjoy the wedding and if I can help with that then I have done my job.”

Shari’s Planning Advice: The earlier you start with a planner the better. Why struggle through it all when a planner can help you from the start!  Even if you do not want full-service planning, they can start you in the right direction and help keep you on track.

When Shari isn’t planning weddings or other special events, you can find her spending time with her family, reading or outside gardening.

The White Elephant Co.

We approached Sharon, owner of The White Elephant Company, after we saw her impressive work for our May photo shoot. We are always on the lookout for new, fresh styles and we think Sharon is a visionary. The combination of organic textures (woven baskets, woods, and plants), with brass and gold metals creates an inviting and natural look that have carried us away. Her styling while incorporating familiar items, such as macrame, is a breath of fresh air to wedding and event design. We love how comfortable the display feels, while retaining a formal heir. Thank you for bringing your style to SPARKLE Sharon!

Leilani Paular Photography

Leilani’s passion for photography developed since childhood, as she often saw her mother with camera in hand and gathering family together for photos. Weddings became a favorite subject, with each one being so different and beautiful. For Leilani, being a wedding photographer is a gift because she gets to capture a such a special part of life for a couple. Capturing the nervous excitement and joy and pareticularly moments between the father and the bride, are a few of her favorite parts. When she’s not photographing, she travels with her family (most recently to New York). We are so happy to have her again as our featured photographer and can’t wait for everyone to see her work!

Joyeux Events

Meet Jessica Shurtleff of Joyeux Events. Jessica has years of experience in event planning, even before starting her own business. She definitely brought full party vibes to this month’s window. Creating a full fiesta in our May Window meant bringing color in the way of pom poms, photo banners, and a cake created by Ruboolus Bakery. We were so pleased with the full concept for Jessica’s design; including an entire photo shoot, preceding the actual window install. Thank you again Jessica for doing double the styling for May’s window.

Sage Dove Photography

Our photographer of the month was clearly born with a natural gift; you wouldn’t guess she has been doing photography for only a year. Meet Brittany Williams of Sage Dove Photography. Being a romantic herself, capturing that distinct love between each couple is a principle key in her style and the reason she loves shooting weddings so much. One of her favorite shots is capturing the groom’s reaction as he sees the bride walk down the aisle. Being able to see the emotion on his face switch from nervous, to overwhelming joy is unmissable. Its pure love and the the entire purpose of the wedding is so clear in that moment. As a mother of three, Brittany’s days are usually full, but they try to make room for quiet time to enjoy together.
