This creative couple were married on April 3, 2016 at The Loft on Pine in Long Beach, California. Stacy and Matt Barnes have waited for this day for 12 years, hence the #finallybarnes hashtag for their wedding. After attending so many traditional weddings that felt the same, they wanted to bring fun, laughter, and light to their magical wedding day. Green Apple Event Company helped them achieve this by creating a light and relaxed atmosphere, while incorporating as many whimsical touches throughout the wedding experience.
Stacy and Matt’s theme was simple, classic, and playful with a touch of rustic. They used a mix of ivories, greys and lush greens to complement perfectly with the market lit wood backdrop and stump lined aisle. Their florist, Lavender’s Flowers, arranged the perfect collection to meet Stacy’s color palette and filled the ceremony with ivory florals and luxurious greenery.
To begin their ceremony, Matt enlisted his company Rogue Creative Development to create some pre-show videos to introduce their wedding party and to also present to their guests with the biggest surprise of the night: a video of their actual first wedding… just 3 months prior, in Vegas! They just couldn’t wait to be husband and wife, and what better way to do it! They brought their entire wedding party to Vegas, married on Friday, January 15 and created a video to show on their “official” wedding day to start it off with a bang!
Before the dinner and dancing commenced, the newlyweds had all of their pastor friends play Rock, Paper, Scissors for the honor of praying before their meals!
Jay’s catered and served Tacos, Sliders and Mac and Cheese. Three delicious comfort food stations that are easy for guests to mingle, choose what they want… and also go crazy with toppings! At our Mac and Cheese Station we offered applewood smoked bacon, sundried tomatoes, crunchy onions, sliced Italian sausage and sliced mushrooms to top their cheesy goodness to their desires!
Rather than opting for one of our traditional wedding cakes, Matt and Stacy wanted to serve some of their favorite desserts to their guests. The couple chose our Dessert Station which included a collection of French Macarons, Raspberry Chocolate Decadence, Cookies, Mini Cupcakes and Lemon Squares.
The night ended with a not so traditional bouquet toss (she included all of the ladies instead of the traditional singles-only) and dancing complemented by their evenings entertainment, VOX DJS!
We wish Matt and Stacy all the best as they begin their new lives together!
