A Beautiful Afternoon at The Pasadena Museum of History

This week I had the pleasure to visit with some talented people in the wedding industry at a lovely venue.  The Pasadena Museum of History is located on a two-acre property on the corner of Orange Grove Blvd. and West Walnut Street in Pasadena.  It is a hidden gem!  

For weddings up to 200 people, you and your guests will enjoy stunning backdrops of historic buildings and lush gardens.  Ceremonies take place on the steps leading up to the majestic Beaux Arts style Fenyes Mansion.

After the ceremony, guests can enjoy cocktails on the lawn.

Receptions are held out on the lawn by the gardens.

We can thank one of our favorite women in the wedding industry for bringing us all to the Pasadena Museum of History.  Jen O'Sullivan, amazing photographer and marketing extraordinaire, began the organization that we were there to support.  Event Specialists International is made up of a group of extremely talented wedding and event specialists that help build each member's business to achieve success.

Here are some of the amazing members that were also there to showcase their amazing work.

The lovely ladies of The Butter End Cakery!  Kimberly Bailey never ceases to amaze us with her stunning and delicious cakes!  We were all very lucky to sample some delicious flavors!

Music and sound was provided by Steven and Jason from 11H Entertainment.  Not only do they have awesome DJs, but they specialize in the Infusion Xperience that combines the talents of "Outrageously Skilled Musicians, World-Class DJs, and Etraordinary Emcees".  We love 11H Entertainment!

Beautiful floral arrangements were created by Wisteria Lane that is a full service eco friendly floral studio.  They specialize in unique designs and all of their flowers and succulents are locally grown.

The event was catered by Meg Hall of Made by Meg!  I loved the Curry Flavored Popcorn and mini twice baked potatoes!

Saul Hirschhorn from Designer Event Rentals brought in all the linens!  They carry a wide variety of products including linens, chairs, bars, dance floors, and furniture.  Saul is a delight to work with!  I know first hand having worked with him on my own wedding!

Copper Willow Paper Studio provided all of our name badges and specialize in custom letterpress!  They are extremely talented and can help you create custom invitations and wedding stationery.

Some of the guests of the event were lucky to be beautified by Betsy diFrancesca, who was showcasing her make-up artistry.  Betsy's forte is giving brides a "natural look with an understated elegance" or as she often says, "the most beautiful version of you."  

It was a lovely day, enjoyed by all!  Thank you, Jen O'Sullivan for inviting us to the Event Specialist International Social!

Much Gratitude,
