Wow! It's been almost a year since I had the wonderful experience of doing a wedding at Calhoun Beach Club. I've been so busy lately, so it becomes a little too easy to be complacent with this blog, so I apologize dear reader.
In addition to this, Calhoun Beach Club has The Solarium, which is the main ballroom with large windows and beautiful chandeliers. The other rooms, The Library and Blvd. Room are the spaces my clients chose to have their December 2015 Wedding. The Library has a beautiful curved staircase that leads up to the Blvd. Room, which is generally used for cocktail hour.
Cal and Jillian chose to have their ceremony in The Library, with cocktail and cake in the Blvd. Room while it was flipped for the reception. The neat thing about this arrangement is the bride walked down this fantastic staircase adorned with a plethora of floral. It was such a grand entrance also a fun exit. Bounding up the stairs after the ceremony, the bride and groom were joined by their guests right away for celebratory drinks while D'Amico Catering and I flipped the room.
I cannot speak highly enough of D'Amico Catering. They are the exclusive caterers for a number of venues around the Twin Cities, and they are rock stars! Of course, Cal and Jill wanted to have a sit down formal dinner which was carried out perfectly. Having the right staff is essential to a smooth transition when planners need to flip rooms.
Of course, the night wouldn't be complete without guests having a blast on the Dance floor. Bellagala provided the DJ service for both the ceremony and reception. Consummate professionals, the Emcee was fantastic cuing the toasters right on schedule and making sure that all important parties were available for each of the dances. These DJ's are on par with live music in my opinion!
Thanks for letting me say some positive words about these hard working Twin Cities vendors. Cheers!!!
*Wonderful Day Weddings was contracted for hire by Bellagala for this wedding.
