All In A Row

Ok, I must admit, I love banquet tables at weddings!  There is something so intimate and yet, at the same time, very regal about guests all sitting together at one or a few main tables.

Oftentimes, using banquet tables can be a space saver as well as budget savvy.  Round tables are traditional for most weddings, however, when you consider the number of centerpieces per table, things start to add up.  Spreading out a few large centerpieces on long tables can not only save you tons of cash, but it also creates an effortless design element to your d├ęcor.  Consider how your guests will feel when they notice they are not stuck at “the singles only table” or “the random work invites table,” but rather seated at the same table as the rest of your friends and family.  

Four Leaf Events loves all things wedding, so whether your table is round, square, rectangle, triangle, oval, or pear-shaped (are we talking about tables or diamonds?), your reception will be beautiful when it reflects you and your new mister.


I'm Just Sayin'...

Eat your heart out:
I adore these Jean-Michel Cazabat pumps!  The cut is so elegant and the sparkle is just stunning.  Also loving this Carmela Swarovski Crystal headband from the Itailian Luxe Collection:
Four Leaf Events loves this idea:  Wow your guests at your reception when you jazz up your wedding look by adding a twinkling accessory for the party!  The perfect solution for the bride who has her heart set on two different styles.

Four Leaf Wedding: Josh & Dani

Josh and Dani were married on December 4th in Indianapolis.  It was a beautiful day full of love and joy.  When they set their wedding date, they had no idea that it would be the first snowfall of the season, and it made for a glorious day of pictures. Sarah Carter Photography captured the day, and with a brave bride and a smitten groom, the pictures are breathtaking! 

Playing up the seasonal traits, Dani used pine cones, sprinkling them throughout the day. She even used pine cones for the bouquets, which made their winter wedding unique and warm.  

Congratulations, Josh and Dani!  May joy and happiness always fall upon you like the snow....

So... When's The Big Day?


There are several factors that go into picking the perfect day for you and your sweetie to tie the knot: seasons, venue availability, birthdays, anniversaries, family obligations.  So as you fumble through your calendars, allow us to offer some insight on what days to avoid in 2011.

It is coming up in just a few short months, but for you last minute brides, try to avoid Friday, April 29th.  Unless you are confident enough to compete with British royalty, then you might loose some of the spotlight to Prince William and Kate Middleton.  


There are also the obvious holidays and holiday weekends that tend to not only cause scheduling conflicts, but can be more costly: 

                 Easter: Sunday, April 24th
                 Mother's Day: Sunday, May 8th (check with mom)
                 Father's Day: Sunday, June 19th (check with dad)
                 Thanksgiving: Thursday, November 24th    
                 Christmas Eve: Saturday, December 24th

Some holidays, depending on when they fall, can make for great long weekend weddings since the majority of your guests will already have work days off.  Choose a wedding day around one of these holidays and pack the weekend full of fun events and lots of celebration surrounding your marriage:

                 Independence Day: Monday, July 4th
                 Labor Day: Monday, September 5th
                 New Years Eve: Saturday, December 31st (love this date!)
                 Martin Luther King Jr. Day: Monday, January 16th, 2012 

And, of course, the two favored dates of 2011 that, if you have not already booked, you may just be out of luck for your top-pick vendors:

                 Saturday, September 10th (9/10/11- Four Leaf Events is still available!)
                 Friday, November 11th (11/11/11!)

Four Leaf Wedding: Mark & Lauren

I am so excited to finally be able to share this wedding today!  Mark and Lauren are such a fun, yet extremely romantic, couple who really know how to entertain!  They were married on October 23rd at the Radisson Hotel at Star Plaza in Merrillville, Indiana near Lauren's hometown.  

It does not get more romantic and bridal than having a pink and purple wedding!  Lauren did a fantastic job selecting everything from the color of the bridesmaids dresses down to the color of her shoes.  Mark Amelse with Amelse Photography was a blessing when we had to switch to our rain plan for photos.  He escorted the bridal party around the huge hotel getting all of the creative shots the bride and groom were wanting.  Do not miss the gorgeous floral arrangements created by Patrick and crew at House of Fabian!

As a passionate fisherman, Mark was able to incorporate his love for fishing in the groom's cake.  The two ring-bearers carried fishing poles down the aisle with a ring tied on the end of each.  Lauren, being the crafty bride, handmade pink and white spheres that were hung from the pergola at the ceremony.  The pergola was made by Mark and Lauren and now resides in their backyard.  Crafty, crafty!!

Four Leaf Events was pleased to be able to provide the uplighting for the ceremony and reception which added a great ambiance for the party.  At the reception, a real-life glee club from Purdue University got the crowd to their feet with their version of "Shout".

It was so rewarding to work with this very special couple because of the love that surrounded them from every corner of the room.  You can witness this love in the the highlight video filmed and created by Bob Ridge with IndyVisual on our next blog.  It will be worth the wait!

Congratulations, Mark and Lauren!  May your life together see many blessings and great happiness...
