Our Favorite DANG! Fine Bride

Our DANG! Fine Bride is getting married! We were lucky enough to host the bridal shower of our dear friend Matiana who owns Dang! Fine Rentals. Matiana has been such a key person in The Venue on Washington’s early success with sponsoring the very first open house and providing helpful tips to our Director of Events, Brittney so We were absolutely thrilled to host her Bridal Shower.

The real team behind this super fun event was Erika and Kate from Bloom and Blueprint. They created everything and used Matiana’s rentals which were so perfect for the occasion. One may ask why the theme was a bug theme but if you know Matiana, then you know that our favorite bombshell boss babe loves bugs! You would never expect that coming from her but she loves them and has a pretty awesome collection herself! Kate and Erika created the most amazing bridal brunch with the help of Mati’s closest friends and family. The details were on another level and they utilized our ceiling beams in the coolest way with hanging palm installs that elevated the whole event. Pops of metallic and gold chairs were amazing and Mati’s cool pieces provided the best setting for celebrating such a special bride to be. It is rare you find such a beautiful woman with a beautiful personality to match so we are so lucky to know Matiana and loved that we got to be a part of this special day.

Matiana has such an amazing group of girlfriends who made this bridal shower one to remember. As the owner of one of, if not the coolest rental companies in Arizona, Mati has industry friends who’s creativity is on another level. The food was all done by her close friends who made nosh boards that were to die for. Mini pancakes, bagels and lox, caprese bites, and everything in between was the perfect setup for a midday brunch.

The bug loving bride-to-be had the most epic bar setup which included actual insect garnish for the cocktails. Couple of Bartenders was in charge of all things cocktails and created signature cocktails that were “disgustingly” delicious. Most people aren’t as fond of insects as Mati is but the cocktails were so great that even the girls who were cringing at the theme still couldn’t get over how yummy the drinks were. Bloom and Blueprint created the cutest signage and edible images for the cocktails really elevated the drinks to fit the theme perfectly. Kinsey Kendrick, owner of Couple of Bartenders, was behind the bar mixing up all of the fabulous drinks (she is one of our favorite people EVER).

the venue on washington is a fairly new venue and we are loving meeting new vendors that we have not worked with before and one of the most amazing vendors we have gotten to know is the one and only kaila cales! SHe is a photographer who is the one behind all of these amazing images. Along with being unbelievably talented, Kaila is such a sweet person and has made us feel so welcomed in this crazy event industry, These events are always so fun for us to be a part of because they are truly filled with genuine love for one another and appreciation of one another’s talents. OUr Director of Events, Brittney, found amazing guidance into the industry with the help of Matiana Mitchell of Dang! Fine Rentals, Kate from Bloom and Blueprint, Tara from the confetti studio, and countless more. Another person we were so excited to get to finally meet was andrea from a bake shop. We have had treats from the bakery before as we are all big fans so it was so exciting for us to have the desserts photographed in our venue. This theme was so fun so seeing what andrea did with it was amazing. Macarons with “love bites” written on them and cookies adorned with cute sayings, and insect details stole the show. Not only were the treats beautiful to look at but they are so delicious! Andrea’s bakery is located in phoenix so it is definitely a must see when you are in the area to get a yummy treat!

This was really a dream event for us to host because we got to work with some of our favorite vendors, one of those being The Confetti Studio, a company who provides the most gorgeous tabletop rentals. Their goblets, flatware, chargers, candlesticks, and basically everything in their inventory, we are so obsessed with. For this bridal shower they stocked the bar with various green toned goblets and the coolest coupe glasses for the signature cocktails. They also set up all of the place settings which included gorgeous copper chargers, flatware and complete with a napkin that resembled a dragonfly. I told you guys, the creativity of these ladies is unreal!
