  • SPARKLE Summer Dreams

    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.
  • Seashores and Sparkle

    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.

    Inspirations by Gina

    We were thrilled to have Gina come on for our April window. She came to us with a clear vision of how she wanted to usher in spring. A trip which lead her to encounter the beautiful cherry blossom and inspired her to bring the brightness of this flower to SPARKLE. We adore all the pink tones that were incorporated into her design and how elegantly the typically whimsical color was used. Gina will be partnering with us again to capture the beauty of the harvest season, so make sure to check back in November!

    Emily has been a photographer for seven years. A passion that started in high school and put her through college, continues today in the form of wedding photography. Though we see an array of styles, Emily’s favorite is still weddings. She loves being a part of that special day and capturing details so often missed in the excitement. It’s a different experience every weekend, Emily noted, and it’s so important to capture the way that day felt; the emotions and energy that you can feel in that moment. When asked what she does in her free time, Emily’s response was “shoot more weddings!” Photography aside, she enjoys traveling and is excited for her upcoming trip to Africa.

    Bells Custom Design

    We are so grateful to Monique for making such an incredible display this month. The craftsman ship behind the paper flowers backdrop is impeccable. When you look at the display, you begin to notice each flower is different than the last; much like each one of our brides. Though just starting her business in January of 2017, Monique has had plenty of experience with decorating for friends and family. When you look at this display, its undeniable that she’s done this before.

    It was such a pleasure to have Aimee in our shop. Her design for our January window is exactly what we hoped for in the first month of the year: a clean and sleek design that is incredibly refreshing. The banners which hang throughout the window, show sweet sentiments that offer positive change, instead of outdated high-pressure resolutions. We love the modern design she created to welcome in 2017; using bold black and white stripes, gold sequins, and contemporary furnishings, this window has all the makings of a celebration.

    Thank you again Aimee!

    Kris not only captured the exciting moments of our window install, but offered a great energy to the shop as well, which made the day even more fun. Kris definitely has an eye for detail; making sure shes getting the perfect line for her picture. This detail orientation comes across in her work. We are so pleased with the way she brought our January Window to life through her photography.

    Thank you Kris!

    We’ve had the pleasure of working with Forever Vintage Rentalsimg_6024 before and are always impressed by their creations. This month they unveiled their “chandi-tree”;  chandeliers that have been stacked on top of each other to create a tree silhouette. It is simply stunning when its all lit up, especially at night. The original visions for the December Window by Forever Vintage Rentals was quite different, but when they revealed how their design we fell in love. There couldn’t be a more perfect theme, not only for the holidays, but for the time we find ourselves in as well. We could all use a little more love to light up our world.

    Thank you for bringing light to our December window!

    We were so pleased to have Ryan Greenleaf as our featured photographer for December. Ryan approached photographing our window with professionalism and a smile. We love the work that he’s done for us and are excited for everyone to see how he captured the glow and warmth of this winter design.


    Thank you again Ryan for being a part of the December Window!

    Nicole Reese

    Nicole’s warm personality comes through in each of her designs, which is just one of the reasons she’s so perfect for the wedding industry. She has a clear interest in working with people and loves to help their ideas come to life. It’s always such a pleasure to have her in the shop; you can see her previous work on our Pinterest page. Her patience and attention to detail is what makes her designs so lovely. For example, carefully placing caps on each individual acorn might seem like a tedious task monotonous, but Nicole set to work without a qualm. Did we mention the shirts featured, Nicole specifically brought for our November display?

    Thank you so much for all your hard work Nicole!







    Heather LaVergne 

    Our very own SPARKLE stylist, Heather, was our featured photographer for the month! Heather studied Film and Media at UC Santa Cruz, so she is no stranger to capturing the action behind the lens. Aside from being one of our main stylists, she also manages our social media; making sure we send out plenty of inspiration from SPARKLE. She loves working with her brides, along with capturing all the behind-the-scenes action in the shop. On her days off, you can probably find her on a mountain.

    Thank you Heather for being part of our November Display!
