At Sasha Souza Events we plan all different types of social events. It's not just weddings...
Everything from birthday parties, rehearsal dinners, brunches, winemaker dinners...anything that consists of a gatherings of friends. Today I have a really great new event that we planned last August...I love all of life's celebrations and this one is no different.
Project: Winecentric celebration dinner
Guest Count: 180
Location: Castello di Amorosa
Date: August 28, 2010
Client Desires: a wonderful, protracted "winecentric dinner" which focuses on what Napa Valley does best ... a food & wine experience.
Event Overview: Guests were shuttled to the venue where they noshed on hors d'oeuvres while overlooking the upper Napa Valley while listening to a live quartet. Before guests were seated in the courtyard, they toured the venue to learn more about how the winery creates the wines they would be tasting later. Once they entered into the courtyard, the experience began with opulently decorated tables in plum linens and accented with gold and fucshia. Guests dined on four courses paired with wines from the winery and the guests were educated on the exact viticulture of wines they were drinking.
After dinner, guests were invited to spend time in the velvet rope bar...to continue their wine tasting experience which included dessert wines paired with small bites. Decorating the well was so much fun with feathers and garland.
Lighting makes all the difference, check out this 16' ice wine bar both during the day and after with the lighting. It's literally day and night...
What celebration is complete without dancing? The dancing room was kept relatively monochromatic but an intense swirl gobo lit the floor.
The lighting in the evening was immensely important to the design because the site can feel very cool and we wanted to warm it up and make it really the star of the event.
Hope you enjoy the amazing details shot by Damion Hamilton and while you're at it, please swing over to his blog to make a comment to increase his donation to Japanese aid relief as well for his Comments for Cash campaign today, 3/29.
So, instead of leaving comments here, please leave them on the posts on their blog.... it would mean a lot to me if you would help support this wonderful cause.
