The First Wedding | CJ & Zach

What an amazing event to launch our newest venue! After months of preparation, the Studio D2D team was ready to go, the Valets from Ellis Parking were assembled and prepared, the caterers, Kangaroo Kitchen, were in place…and we could not have asked for a smoother event! Any hiccups were minor, and the event rolled off without a hitch!

The bridal party was able to get some amazing photos in the venue with their photographer, Sarah Jane Photography,  who coincidentally used to also work with us at Studio D2D! It was awesome to have someone at our first event who was familiar with everyone and already knew our flow. The ceremony and cocktail hour followed, with the D2D team ready to flip the room and set up for the reception was complete in about 15 minutes. While guests mingled at cocktail tables, or rested in the lounge areas, our DJ Nick played music throughout the venue and got everyone ready for the reception to come.

The dinner hour was restful, the food was served buffet style underneath our gorgeous crystal chandeliers, while candles flickered on the tables dressed with simple greenery by our floral designer, Andrea. The bridal party offered up toasts, (the cake was cut immediately once the bride and groom sat at the head table), and then CJ and Zach took a few moments to greet their guests. After the first dance and special parent dances, CJ received a bit of a surprise when Zach and the groomsmen jumped into a dance around her. The guests were welcomed on the floor, and the party was official! Everyone had a blast and sent CJ and Zach off for the night with an amazing departure!

Thanks to everyone for an amazing event!

CJ and Zach, we were so thankful to be a part of your wedding day! Also, to all our vendors, staff and friends…thank you for being beside us as we worked so hard to prepare for another amazing event venue! From the first car in the valet lane, to the staff locking up at the end of the evening, we were blessed with a successful night full of excitement and fun! See you at the next one!
