Occasio Turns 3!

Occasio turned three on May 5th, 2013.  I am a little late in writing this but wanted to share a few pictures of some of the great events we have been able to be a part of in the past three years.  We are so thankful to all of our vendors and clients who have made this journey so amazing.

A Hunters Reception

We got honored to assist in planning a rehearsal dinner for Frank and Brooke at Eddie V’s.  The Braly’s (parents of the groom) were wonderful parents of a  past groom Doctor Houston Braly who married the beautiful and brilliant Doctor Kristina Braly.  Kristina and Houston, were married at Rainbow Lodge last May.  Many of you may know Kristina through her awesome blog Pretty Shiny Sparkly.  Frank was a hunter since birth and Brooke is a talented Houston artist so we decided to bring the outdoors in and create a fun rustic outdoor tablescape.

Lori Holley with Special Arrangements did a fabulous job in recreating our vision.  Each arrangement was propped on top of a wooden plank.  B’s were burnt into the wood for the couples last name and our favorite Textured flowers were used. Star of Bethlehem, Kale, Artichoke, Craspedia, Scabiosa Pods, Hydrangea, Mondial Roses, Eschevaria (succulents), dried lotus pods and dried mushrooms finished off this Hunter’s Reception.  It paired perfectly with the cream swiss polk a dot linen and wooden chargers from Elegant Beginnings.  What more can we say except……. LOVE LOVE LOVE!  Holly Hoyt captured the perfect pictures of the evening.

What’s your Paper Expression?

My favorite detail to an event is the menu card.  I once read that someone found their grandmothers old purse that she had with her while she was on the Titanic.  Inside the purse she found her room key and the menu card with the Titanic inscripted on it.  I now always have the date and place on a menu card.  You never know who will find your menu card. – APS

As we style each event we keep the menu card always in mind.  Katie & Co. are our go to team to create what you now see.  They know paper and it is their passion.
