Just when you think you've been to the coolest love-party around, you show up to Doreen and Dani's, and the tables are named after 1970s divas ... and that's just the beginning.
Meet Doreen + Dani, a doula and a DJ. They are just as cool as that intro lets on. They're two ladies who got married in the heart of Brooklyn surrounded by their family + friends and oh yes - pink flamingos. They came to Modern Rebel looking for partial planning - I [Amy] jumped in and helped them narrow their already awesome vision of a 1970s poolside retro vibe + secure some key vendor players who brought their look, taste, and feel to life. Shoutout: Night Kitchen + Shades of Grey lighting + Wilde Scout Photography! The night had karaoke, croquet, pineapple cups + a surf movie projected on repeat for the entirety of the event. Oh! And did we mention the conga line to the dance floor after cocktail hour?! I'm actually wondering what this party didn't have .... hmm! Gonna have to rain check on that one - cause yes even the dessert shined with a pie cutting [take a back seat, cake]. There's no better way to kick off a lifetime of true love + happiness quite like strawberry rhubarb pie ... I mean, right?
But the best part of it all? These two. There was a lot put into this event - a lot of work and emotional energy to get this theme just right - so it matched these two beautiful people. As a planner, you always hope that on the day of the event, your couple can trust and let go and just enjoy. These two, who worked so collaboratively with me + together in the process were able to do just that. It was beautiful to watch and be a witness to - to see someone truly be in awe of all the details coming to life day-of. They gave themselves permission to be present for that - a truly incredible gift on your love-party day!
