Burning River Entertainment had the privilege to put together a “mock” wedding reception for the “Brides in the City” tour hosted by Covesa Kelly Events this past Saturday. It was our great pleasure to collaborate with our friends from La Centre Conference & Banquet Facility as well as Breathtakers Event Planners and Decorators to make a small room look amazing for a group of 28 brides-to-be!
In order to put on a great example of a wedding reception for Covesa, her team of planners, and brides-to-be, it was truly a team effort from all involved. The kitchen and catering staff at LaCentre put together a wonderful meal, as Social Events planner Sabrina Gorbett and the the rest of LaCentre’s staff were a welcoming group, offering the future brides mimosas at the door and taking everyone on a tour of the facility, which offers many amenities for wedding parties of all sizes, and can accomodate a social event of nearly any size.
Once the brides entered the main room, the “wow” factor was in effect as Sharmaine Marshall from Breathtakers Decorators beautiful selections of linens, centerpieces, and tableware were showcased on four differently styled round tables as well as a small four-person head table with a drapery backdrop. We were able to collaborate to make that head table all the more amazing by projecting a wedding monogram light onto the backdrop. Additionally, the table was framed by uplights that also lit the walls of the entire room, which were cycled through several different colors to show how lighting can truly transform a space.
After the guests entered the room, Burning River Entertainment MC Eli Cohen asked for two volunteers to be the honorary mock “Bride and Groom” – “Mr. and Mrs. Brides in the City”! With everyone on their feet and the music swelling, Eli showed everyone the high-energy style of introduction that BRE is known for! Afterwards, BRE owner Gene Natale, Sabrina from LaCentre, and Sharmaine from Breathtakers all told the group about their respective event companies and what they are able to do to make weddings wonderful, while answering any questions.
Check out the pictures, and remember that when you work with true professionals on your event like Burning River Entertainment, Covesa Kelly Events, Breathtakers, and LaCentre, you can count on having an event to remember forever!
