Blue, white, and yellow nautical bouquetOne of the best ways to narrow down a theme for your wedding day is to think about what the two of you enjoy doing together.  It could be travel, biking, watching classic movies or, as this couple chose, sailing.  Wendy and Dale love to go sailing together, so they decided to have a nautical wedding day with a navy blue, white, and yellow color palette and lots of fun ship-themed details.  They chose the gorgeous brick patio at Old Town’s Firehouse Restaurant for their ceremony and reception, and decorated it with navy blue linens, napkins tied with seashells, and floral pieces designed by Garden of Weedon‘s Suzanne O’Brien.  A gorgeous navy blue and white cake was provided by Freeport Bakery, and Jenn Bartell Photography and Design was on hand to document the day.  It turned out to be a chic, sophisticated event that truly reflected this couple’s personality and style.

Wendy and Dale’s day began with one of the most unique pre-ceremony “reveals” we have ever seen.  On a dock on the riverfront, Wendy waited patiently with her back turned to the water as Dale arrived in a boat and walked up the ramp to meet her.  What a unique idea and what a beautiful result!

This Thursday the three sisters here at Arcularius Events will be busy celebrating the grand opening of our new studio space in downtown Sacramento.  We’re sharing the space with Garden of Weedon Boutique Floral Design and Instruction and Jenn Bartell Photography and Design, which means our new space will practically be wedding planning heaven!  Moreover, Arcularius Events is undergoing a name change and will soon become Catrina Maria Event Planning & Design.  What better way to celebrate a new space and a new name than with a party?  The studio is at 2418 K Street in Sacramento, so feel free to stop by anytime between 5 and 10 PM to check out our new digs.  For those who can’t make it on Thursday our doors will be open for Second Saturday as well…that means there’s no excuse not to come!!

We hope to see you all there!!!
