Ciara and Eugene tied the knot with impeccable style at the US Grant. This historic hotel was the perfect setting for this energetic, stylish and beautiful couple who set out to give their guests a party they will surely never forget. From the moment guests entered the Crystal Ballroom for the ceremony, which was adorned with amazing flower arrangements (designed by the talented Organic Elements), the tone was set for an incredible evening. The candle-lit ceremony honored family and cultural traditions while also celebrating the unique aspects of Ciara and Eugene’s relationship. After the cocktail hour, the guests were taken down to the Celestial Ballroom (another ‘wow’ moment – great work, Concept Events Design!) where they were treated to good music (thanks to DJ Artistic), a delectable dinner (well done, US Grant), a surprise Samba performance (Oh La La Dance Academy), stunning and delicious wedding cakes (compliments to Sweet Cheeks Baking Co.), personalized cartoon caricatures by Rodgon the Artist (such a fun idea!), and ice cream sandwiches by Baked Bear. The party went late into the night and ended with Ciara and Eugene surrounded by their friends and family in a huge embrace (bottom image in this post.) We were honored to work side by side with Jeremy and Brian (Blue Tiger Films) to tell the story of the day, and we can’t wait to see their wedding film! A huge applause to Amy with First Comes Love who helped turn Ciara and Eugene’s vision into the incredible reality that was their wedding day and for leading an incredible team of vendors to knock the socks off of Ciara and Eugene’s guests.
