~ Nicolie & Nicola ~

February greetings to all!

~ There was a woman named Nicolie who fell in love with a man named Nicola ~

and over a period of time ~ my entire event team and my wedding vendors sweetly dubbed them “The Nics.”

The Nics contacted me the day after they attended one of the events that my team and I designed and produced in just five short weeks on November 18, 2006 ~ the wedding celebration of Jennifer & Mark Wilkes held in Granite Bay. They phoned me on the 19th and they met and hired my team and myself on Monday ~ November 20th , which they gave me an ornament and asked me to design their wedding event based on this ornament! It was a treasure of a journey with them this entire year and one I will never forget.

It was a complete honor to be a part of The Nics wedding celebration and New Years Eve Extravaganza this past December. Their vision was based on a Christmas ornament they found at Crate & Barrel; Nicolie’s favorite holiday of the calendar year; and a vision of an "Italian Appalachian Alps Winter Wonderland" filled with white branches everywhere; and words in English and Italian that they were going to base their marriage upon just like their parents and grandparents before them!

The entire event collaboration with our wonderful clients and life long friends "The Nics"; Matt Brys of Extreme Productions Entertainment, LLC, for rocking the house with his custom lighting design and mixing both current American top hip music and authentic selections from Italy that made the guests from across the pond jam to the dance floor; Robyn Lyn Steward of Philosophia Custom Paperie & Invitations for the dual language invitations; escort cards; menu's; table signage and the words highlighted on the ceiling and pillars to reflect all the custom paperie ; Shelley McArdle of Floral Artistry; Gretchen Wacholder of Il Fornaio and my fabulous production team at TFEP&D (Thank you all for your hard work and over the top hours!!! It was a 30 hour day for most of us!!!) it was one amazing experience and one we will hold dear in our hearts for a very long, long time!
TFEP&D should have a pretty fabulous video that Phill Sheffield of Sheffield Multimedia put together to truly encompass this evenings wedding ceremony; authentic Italian dinner reception and complete new years eve celebration extravaganza. A most fierce and fabulous extravaganza it was!

Please enjoy a few images highlighted above from their wonderful celebration caught forever in time by Cindi Kinney and Lorenzo Bartone of Cinzo Photo Artistry;!

Warmest wishes, bliss and blessings,
