Our Croquet Party has been getting a ton of press and pins! I’ve got exclusive video of the event to share with you. Roll the film, please!

Croquet at Meadowood Resort, Napa Valley from Living Cinema on Vimeo.

And now, here’s a little background. To kick off their wedding weekend, my clients Brad & Sarah wanted a thematic welcome reception and something that was extremely different than a black tie wedding. Most guests were staying at the beautiful Meadowood resort in Napa, so we opted to utilize their amazing croquet lawn and created a fun, buttoned up yet informal, croquet party. Inspired by Brad and Sarah’s love for “Hermes” orange, Mindy Rice and I designed a crisp white and orange event. Brad and Sarah have extraordinary attention to detail, so Mindy and I had a blast catering to their love for them! We created a custom logo (reminiscent of the Hermes logo!) that represented Sarah and Brad’s relationship. We incorporated this logo on fun details such as their throw pillows on the lounges, their popcorn bags, and cocktail napkins. Each guest was given a pair of Jack Purcells as their favor – packaged in personalized orange drawstring bags. The wait staff donned thematic attire — khakis, crisp white dress shirts, and thematic orange & white ties, and even Theo (Brad & Sarah’s dog) was decked out in a coordinating orange collar on his coordinating orange bed and dog toys! Sarah and Brad organized a full tournament with prizes (thematically orange of course!) and the guests had a blast!

Check out the gorgeous photos below.(Thanks, Aaron!) Doesn’t that orange and white just shout happiness?!
