ABC OC Members Meeting

Styled shoot by day, wedding industry event by night. The team at Events by Robin collaborated with amazing vendors to decorate The Estate on Second for a wedding styled shoot before hosting the Association of Bridal Consultants Orange County members that same evening. Retro romantic seemed to be the theme of the styled shoot with pops of rust, mustard and gold decorating the venue. A hexagonal arbor covered in dried palm, roses, eucalyptus and more stood tall in front of the Estate’s center Palladian window. Wooden chairs and candlelit lanterns set the ceremony scene and the bride and groom were the finishing touch. The bride wore a whimsical all lace gown and the groom wore a camel colored suit tying into the retro theme. The ceremony space was then flipped into a reception setup with wooden tables, stone grey plates, gold flatware and vases filled with the same flowers found in the ceremony backdrop. A lounge was also added and perfectly placed near large windows allowing natural light into the space. A sofa decorated with orange, mustard and cream pillows was accompanied by two sitting chairs and multiple tables. All finishing touches were completed and shot before the ABC OC members began arriving.

Cocktail tables were scattered across the open space in the Crystal Ballroom where ABC OC members snacked on a delicious menu of hors d’oeuvres selected by our Event Specialist, Brittany, and the ABC OC team. Mini Turkey Palm Sandwiches, Beef Picadillo Empanadas, Lemon Parmesan Artichoke Hearts, Caprese Skewers, and Vegetable Thai Spring Rolls were individually plated at an hors d’oeuvre station and wine and beer were available to sip on while networking. Members enjoyed their time taking photos at the photo booth, listening to the dj spinning tracks, and listening to updates from the ABC OC leaders.
