Katie & Eric: Marina, CA

We had the pleasure of working with Katie and Eric to help them plan and design their big day this past October.  They were such a fun, simple, laid back couple and we had such a blast.  The Wylie Team was DJ Thad and I (Katie) with the help of my wonderful friend Jennifer Hogan as my assistant.  We got to work with some incredible photographers (E&B Photography) who took the following pictures that we are sharing here.

Katie and her mom wanted desperately to use the venue in Marina, CA based upon it’s location and beauty….but when it came to the design of the restaurant where the reception would be held, they weren’t as enthusiastic.  They hired us to come in and help transform the space from a hula tiki hawaiian restaurant (nothing wrong with that, just not their style) into a rustic, intimate space for their closest family and friends.  My favorite part of the evening was when Katie’s mom came up to me in tears saying, “I can’t believe this is the same place!!”

Congrats Katie and Eric!
