The Chinsky Wedding

Posted by on 3:00 pm in blog | Comments Off on The Chinsky Wedding


One year ago today the Chinskys were getting married at the beautiful Dover Hall. We loved working with them to make their wedding completely kosher.  The menu was developed as a fusion between kosher traditions and the influence of Southern cuisine.  The Smoked Salmon and Dill Mac and Cheese was a perfect example of the creative kosher take on a Southern classic dish.   Congrats to the lovely couple and we wish you the best of luck!

Any chance you are planning an event sometime soon, but have no idea where to start? Don’t worry! Here is some inspiration for your next special occasion!

We were inspired to create this display with an overall classic glam design. The all white gives the look very clean finish while the accents of gold ties the room together. It was very simple to put together and it is an easy way to glam up your next event!

Jamie and Min’s Wedding

Posted by on 3:00 am in blog | Comments Off on Jamie and Min’s Wedding


The tone for Jamie and Min’s wedding was set as soon as we walked in and noticed the bride having a private jam session to some Beyonce with her bridesmaids. Beyonce became an understated yet greatly appreciated theme through out the night, bringing out the personalities of the bride and groom.

This high energy and fun loving couple spent a majority of their relationship long distance as Minn has been stationed over seas for much of their time together. They look forward to spending a long and joyous life together and we wish them all the happiness in the world!

Richmond Heart Ball 2016

MOSAIC-43 1.27.48 PM



 We’re feeling a little nostalgic as the new year begins and excited to share photos from one of our favorite events of 2016.  As we continue the planning process for the 2017 Heart Ball Season, it is the perfect time to look back and reminisce on last year.

When we sit down at the planning table with a blank slate, one of the things that motivates us is the anticipation of our guests’ reactions and dreaming up ideas that might inspire them.

We really enjoyed the exciting reactions to the spectacular costumes, performances, and beautifully crafted Asian-themed courses. The theme in Richmond last year was Fortune of Heart.  Clusters of tables of various shapes, heights and sizes were each decorated in unique styles.

We’re proud and honored of our continued partnership with the American Heart Association and we are looking forward for this year’s Heart Ball taking place on April 22nd, 2017!
