Historic Hotel Woodland

When you have that intimate space such as the Historic Hotel Woodland and a lovely couple like I have in Christina and Troy, what more could you ask for as an event designer? Here are some photos of their reception venue....and I will be sure to get you shots of their beautiful day coming up in March! More to come....

Formal Affair Inspiration

Style Me Pretty Inspiration Board
My new clients Sabrina and Cory have got me on the black and white inspiration path. I'm always excited to start the production process for a new event, but something tells me Sabrina's trust and faith in the Alison Ulshoffer Events team is going to equate to one phenomenal wedding. I will, of course, pass along the details.........

Martha Andrews of Blooms

I know I am constantly staying how "excited" I am, but I am SO excited to introduce you to a new colleague and future friend Martha Andrews of Blooms! Not only is she a phenomenal floral designer, with over 20 years of experience, she is simply a great person! I had so much fun meeting with her this week, and viewing her gorgeous unique work, that I just had to share with you all!

As you will see above & below, Martha's designs are so versatile and simply stunning! Enjoy!

West Sacramento Holiday Wine Social!

I am so honored and excited that I will be producing an event at the Sacramento Grand Ballroom on December 18th. The West Sacramento Holiday Wine Social is a benefit to support my Alma Mater, Westmore Oaks Elementary School. When I was asked to design this event I couldn't say yes fast enough!

All of these absolutely fabulous vendors from not only West Sacramento, but the outlying areas of Sacramento, are donating their services at no cost to the West Sacramento Educational Foundation! 100% of the proceeds will be going towards programs for the school. Some of those programs include the "Anti-bullying" cause.

Brandon and Kami Storz of Sound Image Entertainment are amazingly providing their music talents! The always genial Palamidessi family, owners of The Pheasant Club, a staple in the West Sacramento community, are donating signature dishes from their restraunt. Ernesto Jimenez, owner of Zocalo restaurant, also a truly gracious and giving member of our community will be sponsoring this event with his phenomenal fare! George Chryssafis of La Bou West Sacramento is another sponsor, donating their fantastic fresh pastries!

There are too many amazing, giving sponsors to talk about...but please take notice above. These are truly generous business owners who not only said "Yes" to being a sponsor, but said so with great enthusiasum! Thank you all!

Pink Pink Pink!

This DIY kit in the upper left hand corner, courtesy of Martha Stewart, incorporates my two favorite things, pink and birds! Stunning is the only way to describe this subtly pink gown by Suzanne Ermann. Subtle touches, like pink champage are going beyond, without going overboard.

Those of you that know me, know how much I LOVE the color pink. So when my adorable new client Jessica said she envisioned "vintage and pink", I knew we'd make a perfect team. Designing her event might possibly be more fun for me than her. I'll keep you posted!

Day After Photography

Something to consider if you opted not to have engagement photos is "day after" photography. The stress of the big day is gone, and you and yours can finally relax. Here are more photos by the AMAZING Rachel Robertson taken in Hanalei Bay, Kauai. Enjoy!

I Heart LH Calligraphy!

I am so excited my clients talked me into creating a blog! Why? Because when I discover amazing and unique talent such as Laura Hooper of LH Calligraphy I just can't wait to share!

Some of Laura's designs are so fun and unique, others are classic and elegant, you must have a look! They're perfect for that destination wedding we've been chatting about! Enjoy!
