A Most Important Job…

Amongst all the stress of planning your wedding day, you have two very important members of your bridal party just itching to sprint down the aisle. Keep in mind the flowergirl and ringbearers have a very important job in your wedding day: the keeper of the “rings” and to make way for the bride by use of flower petals.

This precious flower girl dress has a floor length skirt of lace and pleated organza ruffles. Many bridal gowns have the same features and now we’ve got the flower girl dress to match! As always, the ribbon sash can be ordered in a variety of colors. Swing by to take a closer look at it! Premier Bride's Perfcet Dress

Your flower girl will no doubt be adorable, so consider her dressing the part. Try to find a mini dress to accompany yours, or have one made. It’s always adorable to see the bride and flowergirl in their matching attire. You might consider giving her an unconventional bag instead of the basket that is a more traditonal option.

The ringbearer always looks daper in his mini tuxedo, just make sure he matches the groom to a tee. If the groom has suspenders, have the ringbearer get them too. A little fedora hat also goes a long way. You can certainly still use a pillow with fake rings, but consider something a little more updated like the ringbearer carrying a sign saying “Here comes the bride!” This is really sweet and can be used for great pictures.

 We have so much fun when the adorable Flower Girl dresses start to arrive. They’re just so cute! This is a new arrival from Jordan, shown in White and Light Pink. It has a satin bodice with a keyhole back and satin waistband. The tulle tutu skirt also has contrasting accents along the edge. This dress is available in any combination of 2 of the 75 colors Jordan offers. Lots of options with this one! http://www.fresnobridalsalon.com/

Your guests want to see the adorable ringbearer and flowergirls antics, so be ready for the comedy hour. Make sure that you put their parents in strategic places in the seating, so that if they do get a little rowdy, they can get them quickly.

About Reverie

Ray is an awesome cinema shooter and started ReverieVP.com after shooting weddings beside Alicia at ThePhotoFriends.com  and seeing a need for a fresh perspective on video here in the valley.

Sometimes they shoot beside other photogs doing cinema, or shoot with other videographers doing photo, but we LOVE LOVE LOVE shooting cinema and photo side by side together.  Their passion really shows through when they collaborate and you can really see that in the work they produce together.

Please look through our photos and wedding trailers, fall in love with being in love and the idea of capturing it.  Let them know if you’d like to get to know them better than on a blog page and you can sit down, have some coffee and talk about your big day.

“We love having fun, we love being happy, we love being in love, and we LOVE shooting weddings! ” ~ Ray & Alicia

Premier Bride Showplace Tips

You may find that the more time you can save in planning your wedding, the better. Our bridal show can be the one stop shopping experience you need to plan your entire wedding, especially if you go prepared. Here are a few tips on how to get the most out of Premier Bride Showplace:

598041

  • Plan In Advance – Make a list of what you will need most and what your budget will allow for each item and service. Be sure to leave some room for the unexpected – you never know when you may see something you’ll want to have that you never thought of.
  • Be Ready To Make Decisions – Bring the major decision-makers to Premier Bride Showplace with you. If you are the major decision-maker, bring someone with you that you can bounce ideas off of. Be ready to book your favorite vendors there at the show. Some exhibitors may even offer day-of-show booking discounts.
  • Dress For The Occasion – Remember to wear comfortable shoes. Need we explain more on this one?
  • Fashion Forward – Bring a notepad with you to jot down any dresses or tuxes you like during the fashion show. It will be much easier for you to remember which Bridal Salon featured the gowns you like. You’ll also want to be able to take notes when attending the seminars.
  • Above all, have fun! Bridal shows may be useful and informative, but they’re also a blast. You’ll have a great time with your family and friends – planning your perfect day!

Fax. (559) 233-7544

Located in the heart of Fresno’s renovated downtown, The Downtown Club has long served as the gathering point for the community’s leaders and decision makers. Formed in 1963, The Downtown Club was originally located on the top floor of the T.W. Patterson Building, before moving to the renovated Fresno Republican Printery Building in 1982. Once strictly a members-only club, the Downtown Club is now open to the public for private catered events.

A Time – Honored Tradition of Service

The Downtown Club services its members and guests with attentiveness reminiscent of an earlier time. Meals are not rushed, special requests are honored, and courtesy is the rule of the day.

Menu selections, prepared by the Executive Chef and his culinary staff, feature the freshest Valley produce and are varied weekly to reflect the changing seasons. The Downtown Club’s professional staff is available to anticipate your every need and meet your every expectation.

The Club

Located in the heart of Fresno’s renovated downtown, The Downtown Club has long served as the gathering point for the community’s leaders and decision makers. Formed in 1963, The Downtown Club was originally located on the top floor of the T.W. Patterson building, before moving to the renovated Fresno Republican Printery Building in 1982, where it remains a vital part of the Valley’s business and political scene.

The Club’s Discreet entrance belies the stimulating architecture that awaits when you step inside. Once you do, you know you have arrived someplace special. The attitude and ambience of The Downtown Club create a lasting impression not easily duplicated.

Wedding Receptions 

Located in the heart of Fresno, The Downtown Club is the perfect location for your special day.   Once strictly a members-only club, the Downtown Club is now open to the public for private catered events.  The Downtown Club is rich with tradition; for 34 years, it has been the site for some of the grandest social events in Fresno. Our refined hospitality and classic ambiance welcomes new friends and old with the same gracious charm.

The Downtown Club seats up to 200 guests for served or buffet style wedding receptions with a DJ and Dance Floor.   On-site ceremonies may be had for weddings under 100 guests, with a reception to follow on the main floor.  The Downtown Club’s full bar is available to all wedding guests, with a beautiful stained glass partition separating the lounge area from the main floor.  Additional side rooms are available as well to suit your needs; a bride’s room, kids’ room, or enclosure for the gift table are all possible at The Downtown Club.

Private rooms are available for parties ranging in size up to 80 persons, with AV equipment on site for your use.   Our large main floor accommodates up to 140 without a dance floor for all of your large-group needs.   The main floor and large side room are frequently used together to facilitate appetizer-only parties of up to 300 guests.  Whether you’re holding a fundraiser, retirement party, political event, or reunion, the timeless beauty of this facility will add just the right touch.

On Site Catering Services

Chef Rick and his highly skilled staff offer a creative variety of both traditional and innovative cuisine.  Our standard menus may be viewed here on the website, with a full range of appetizers, salads, main courses, and desserts.  The wide range of choices available at The Downtown Club focuses on Local and Organic options, and over 90% of its menu is created in house, from scratch.  Several vegetarian dishes are listed on our menus,  and we will be happy to prepare a favorite family recipe, design an ethnic food theme, or create a specialized menu for a particular occasion.

Featured Vendor – The Painted Table

 

About The Painted Table

Since 2008, The Painted Table, has been creating unique and delicious food combinations for weddings, anniversaries, corporate gatherings and special occasions through out the Central Valley. Voted one of the top catering businesses in the Fresno area, co-owners and personal chef’s Rodney Hansen and Jeromie Garza have deep roots in the culture of the San Joaquin Valley.

Rodney’s family were almond and grape farmers. Committed to their Danish traditions, they stopped every day and 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to relax with family and enjoy coffee, tea, fresh squeezed juice and pastries. Rod’s family traditions helped him develop his passion for cooking using locally grown produce and ingredients. He attended the School of Culinary Arts at the Art Institute of Seattle where he earned a degree in both Pastry and Culinary Arts. After graduating, he worked at the Culinary Institute’s West Coast Campus, Greystone, in St. Helena, California. Rod also worked for the Sorrento Hotel in Seattle, Washington as well as for Dilettante Chocolate, as a pastry chef.

While Jeromie also has a love for the culinary arts, his path to the catering business took a different route. He spent many years in the dental field developing his customer service and marketing skills. He met Rod through work and learned everything about Culinary Arts from him. With their combined skills the two decided to open Magical Cakes in Visalia.

Then in 2008, Rod and Jeromie created The Painted Table. What started as a personal chef service, has quickly grown into a successful catering business. Clients have come to appreciate their signature dishes that are visually appealing and simply delicious.

Rod says their attention to detail makes them stand out in the catering community. The Painted Table offers unique options to its client that can’t be found elsewhere. They will customize a menu to meet their client’s specific needs, using locally grown, fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. Their table settings are so visually appealing, that it looks like a work of art – hence their name, The Painted Table.

In June of 2011, The Painted Table moved into the restaurant formerly known as the Daily Planet, next to the historical Tower Theater. This new space, which can accommodate as many as 250 people, is perfect for cocktail parties, corporate gatherings or even intimate events. They can also partner with the Tower Theater to provide their clients with access to the theater for larger events such as weddings. Finally, as an added value for theater patrons, The Painted Table will be partnering with the Tower Theater for selected events, providing dinner and show packages.

Although they moved to the beautifully restored Daily Planet, The Painted Table is mainly an off-site catering operation, traveling throughout the Central Valley and as far as Los Angeles or San Francisco to cater special events.

Rod and Jeromie pride themselves in making every
occasion’s menu a delicious work of art. All clients are treated with the upmost respect and care. Consultations are set up at either the Daily Planet or the event location to go over menu options as well as secure the date. Once a client has secured their date and made their deposit, they can set up a menu tasting.

If at all possible, they prefer to book events 6 months in advance, especially during the peak seasons during the holidays and summer, the earlier the better.

Rod and Jeromie love what they do and it shows in the service they provide. In a few short years, they have quickly become the go to caterers for the client who wishes to create a memorable event for their guests, with amazing culinary creations that simply cannot be found with any other caterer.
