Anyone planning a wedding in Napa Valley will tell you that one of the most important aspects of a successful wedding is good wine.  Even if you aren’t celebrating your nuptials in wine country, providing your guests with delicious, high-quality wine to enjoy with their meals adds a certain specialness to their experience.  Of course this seems easy enough, but when it comes to staying within budget, shelling out an extra $20 per bottle isn’t always an option.  That’s why we’d like to let you in on a little secret…

Sonoma Valley Wines.  SVW offers an unoaked Chardonnay packed with fruit and citrus flavors, a Merlot with hints of berries, chocolate, and cedar (!), and grapefruit-y tropical Sauvignon Blanc.  We tried all three of them and thought they were fantastic.  But what makes these wines so special that we would blog about them?  Right now at Trader Joe’s you can find all three selling for $5.99.  With a typical cost per bottle around $11.99, this price is a steal!  These wines would make special yet budget-friendly additions to your wedding, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, you name it!  For a fun pre-wedding evening, invite members of your bridal party over for a tasting to see if they approve…Enjoy!

We recently decided to take the time to introduce the members of our Three-Sister Team, so that you know exactly who you are working with when you hire Arcularius Events.  A few days ago we introduced Marianna, and now we’d like to introduce another sister, the lovely and talented Mairead.

Mairead has worked with Arcularius Events for the past three seasons as our Event Space Designer.  As our space designer, Mairead employs her design expertise to create custom layouts for each event.  She uses precise dimensions to ensure that each event is well-thought-out and perfectly designed.  

Mairead graduated from Sacramento State with a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design and for the past six years has worked with clients in the areas of residential, hospitality, healthcare and corporate design.  From private residences to large scale venues, her layouts provide the team with detailed pre-event planning and day-of organization every event needs to flow smoothly.  Along with her event layouts Mairead brings the knowledge to give your special event the opportunity to be “Green.”  

After a short break to have her second child Mairead is back, bringing with her a new enthusiasm to our Three-Sister Team! Catriona’s unique passion and intuition teamed with Mairead’s attention to detail and Marianna’s thoughtful organization ensures that your event will be everything you dreamed of and more.
