Cynthia and Andrew came to Team KWE and despite being generally private people, their love filled the room.  They were very adamant that they wanted to find a balance between formality and fun for their special day, and that it should feel joyful, warm, and intimate for everyone in attendance.  As red is the Chinese wedding color, it was only natural that Cynthia and Andrew chose a cardinal red to be their primary color, with cream and gold accents.  Through the natural beauty of the Crocker Art Museum, gorgeous floral arrangements, and simply stunning tablescapes, Team KWE went to work to bring Cynthia and Andrew’s wedding visions to life!

Guests arrived at the Crocker Art Museum in the early evening for a truly intimate ceremony. Use of the gorgeous grand piano in the ballroom created a lovely atmosphere, the perfect backdrop for the couple’s custom-written ceremony.  Afterwards, guests moved to the cocktail hour for refreshing drinks and delicious passed appetizers.

After Cynthia and Andrew were introduced as newlyweds, guests found their seats and were treated to a beautiful plated meal.  Entree choices included house-smoked pork loin with grilled pineapple salsa, grilled salmon with cracked pepper relish, and quinoa-stuffed roasted gypsy peppers.  From here, Cynthia and Andrew spent their evening surrounded by there closest family and friends, eating, drinking, and dancing the night away.  We absolutely loved working with this beautiful couple and we wish them many years of love and happiness in their marriage.  Congratulations, Cynthia and Andrew!

Devin and Trent met through mutual friends at a party and they clicked immediately.  Both residents of Sacramento for 10+ years, they love to enjoy all that Midtown has to offer. One of their favorite spots to relax outdoors is Capitol Park Rose Garden.  When he proposed, Trent took Devin on a picnic underneath “their” tree at the rose garden and popped the question over an afternoon picnic.  It’s only fitting that they chose to get married under the very same tree!

When asked how they wanted their wedding day to feel, Devin and Trent responded with relaxed and classy, and they were adamant that they day should be reflective of them. Through a stunning color palette of black, white, emerald green and warm metallics; two magnificent venue spaces; and gorgeous florals; Team KWE went to work to bring Devin and Trent’s wedding day dreams to life!

Guests arrived for the ceremony in the late afternoon and were greeted with acoustic guitar music.  After watching Devin and Trent exchange vows in a truly intimate ceremony, guests travelled to the reception.  At the cocktail hour, guests enjoyed beer, wine, and an appetizer display of chips, salsa and guacamole provided by Tres Hermanas (Devin and Trent’s favorite).

When Devin and Trent arrived, they were welcomed in to Billy Withers’ “Lovely Day” and were cheered on by their loved ones.  Guests sat at tables that were beautifully adorned with black and white striped runners, stunning botanical floral arrangements, and mixed metallic placesettings.  The reception space was softly lit by twinkle lights, which were strung around each pillar.  As a unique choice, Devin and Trent made a display table that showed their attendees “Where We Come From”, complete with pictures of grandparents and other loved ones. A favorite show of the couple, Planet Earth, was played on a projector during dinner. After dinner and toasts, Trent’s father played a slideshow for the couple and there wasn’t a dry eye in the entire room. From here, Devin and Trent spent the remainder of their evening surrounded by their family and friends, eating, drinking and dancing the night away!  We absolutely loved working with this amazing couple.  We wish you many years of love and happiness in your marriage.  Congratulations again, Devin and Trent!
