Colleen from Fairy Godmother wedding planners tells us about the day

These newly-weds chose to hold their special day at the childhood home Gabby grew up in, located in the outskirts of Bakersfield, California. This was the perfect location to celebrate such a meaningful day since Gabby had always wanted a backyard, garden-themed wedding. Her parents’ backyard is also where Anthony proposed which made it all the better. The backyard was turned into an idyllic setting ​​for their special evening. While getting ready to marry her prince charming, Gabby watched her childhood home transform into her “venue” and it was truly an unforgettable moment.

When it came to planning their wedding, florals and entertainment were the most important aspects to Gabby and Anthony. Keeping the aesthetic fresh and fun, lush-white orchids and crisp roses were installed throughout the venue space by Perry Florals. Ellie Ennis, a live pianist played the piano as guests walked through the house. And throughout cocktail hour, The Tea Rose String Quartet played live instruments as guests mingled before dinner.
Simplistic yet sophisticated, these champagne bridesmaid dresses were everything and more. They only complimented Gabby’s timeless wedding gown.

The night arrived and the mood was transformed into a magical evening with the night sky peeking through the strung lights for an intimate and cozy gathering.
Gabby and Anthony’s wedding was beyond what they had ever hoped it would be. From lovely live music to the artistic and romantic ambiance, this couple’s big day put everyone in a dazzling romantic mood. Needless to say, it couldn’t have been a dreamier June wedding.
This couple ultimately enjoyed the planning process of their wedding so what would they say to others embarking on the same thing?

“Make the most of every moment. ESPECIALLY the wedding planning! When people say it goes so fast… it is true. Be present, be joyful, and be persistent!” Fairy Godmother Events were absolutely outstanding! They went above and beyond to meet my expectations. Fairy Godmother Events did a remarkable job on my wedding and provided me with the most outstanding team. They met all my expectations and more! I couldn’t have been more impressed with an event planner. Thank you again for bringing my dreams to life!
