Sarah + Jon

Elysian Wedding Inspiration by Carly Rae Weddings #carlyraeweddings

Sarah + Jon hold a special place in my heart. I met them for the first time in South Bay and we instantly connected over a cup of earl grey.  I’ve never laughed as hard in a consultation as I did with these two.  Later I found out that Jon is a comedian and spends his days writing, acting, and producing for Comedy Central.  These two envisioned a laid back intimate dinner party with some of their closest family and friends.  They valued good food, killer drinks, and a carefree atmosphere where friends could relax and feel at home.

We brought on Whoa Nelly who created the best farmer’s market inspired menu as well as Pharmacie who also created a few signature cocktails for guests to enjoy.  Yeah Rentals provided their long wooden tables which we dressed up with Borrowed Blu’s glassware.  Primary Petals hit another home run with over 200 unique bud vases acting as table runners for each guest to enjoy.

The toasts were probably my favorite.  Jon had quite a few friends who were also comedians themselves.  I’ve been to a few comedy acts over the years but nothing will top how special these moments were.  Each speech was jam packed with a deep sense of joy and love for the couple along with some of the funniest stories and jokes I’ve ever heard.
