As mentioned in our anniversary blog post--we've had the pleasure of connecting with some of the most supportive vendors, not just in the Bay Area, but in the industry as a whole. One such small business we were lucky to cross paths with very early in our journey was Shop Candy Crush, and its innovative and driven owner/operator: Jeannette Quintero.

In Jeanette's online shop, you can peruse through and purchase some seriously adorable party supplies (I mean, c'mon look at some of this stuff):

...and the most amazing selection of one-of-a-kind linens. I'm not kidding you, folks...her curated collection is drool-worthy.

You can also find some incredible event design inspiration via her blog, because Jeanette's talents aren't limited to linens and décor--she's an incredible stylist as well. She's got an eye for making things sparkle--both figuratively and literally ;)

We've had the pleasure of working with Shop Candy Crush on a number of shoots and events, and we're continually amazed by Jeanette's sense of design, her resources, and her passion for the industry. Through her we've been connected with other like-minded companies and individuals, and we're eternally grateful for that.

If you're looking to add a bit of sparkle or texture to your big day, we highly recommend checking out Shop Candy Crush :)



Until next time!

The Lighthouse Celebrates TWO!

THE LIGHTHOUSE: 2nd Anniversary

On June 12, 2014, after two years of renovations, The Lighthouse officially opened its doors. Surrounded by city officials, local vendors, friends, and family, we cut the ribbon and dove right in. 


Since that wonderful evening, we've had the extreme privilege of bearing witness to several dozen wedding ceremonies, engagement parties, baby showers, anniversaries, graduations, and even a handful of memorial services. To be entrusted as the backdrop for SO many momentous occasions, and to know we'll forever be intertwined in the history of so many lives, is not something we take lightly. We take pride in what we do, and we appreciate our amazing clients, not only for choosing to join our Lighthouse family, but for being the amazing, down-to-earth people that truly make our job enjoyable.

Last year, our One-Year Anniversary was coupled with a celebration for winning "Marina of the Year". Out of all of the "small" marinas in the nation--The Glen Cove Marina ranked number one. We surely couldn't have accomplished this without the support of all of our clients and vendor friends. Because not only have we had the privilege of working with the best clients around, we've also established some amazing connections and relationships with the most incredible vendors. The support, encouragement, and kindness we've been shown has been overwhelming. 


We'll soon be rolling out our "Vendor Spotlight" feature on the LH Blog (along with several other features to help spruce things up around here), so you'll get to know some of these incredibly talented Bay Area event professionals soon enough. 

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for making these past two years in business so wonderful--we look forward to infinite more! 



Happy Saturday! We are very excited to introduce you to another one of our lovely Lighthouse Couples! These two were engaged at a lighthouse (I mean, c'mon, I can hardly think of a more fitting engagement story ;)) and will be married here at the venue this September. Read below for more about these two and how they decided The Lighthouse at Glen Cove Marina was the right venue for them!

1) How did you and your fiancé meet? :

Jason and I met online. worked for us!

2) What's the proposal story?:

Jason took me on a surprise trip to East Brothers Light Station where we had a delicious dinner. He suggested that we watch the sunset from the top of the lighthouse, and I thought that was a great idea. While we were at the top of the lighthouse, watching the sunset, he got on one knee and asked me to marry him. I think I had a mini heart attack, but as soon as I could speak I said "YES!". It was the most romantic proposal…. 

3) What made you decide to book The Lighthouse for your big day?:

We live locally and knew that there was a marina in Vallejo, so we decided to check out the area for wedding ideas. The moment that we discovered The Lighthouse there was no question that we wanted to get married there, especially since we got engaged at a lighthouse. We could envision a serene ceremony on the lawn and having a fun celebration in the banquet room; all at one location. The Lighthouse amenities meet all of our needs and make for easy planning. We think we've made the best wedding decision in booking at The Lighthouse. 

4) What are you most looking forward to about your wedding?:

We are excited to get married first and foremost. We look forward to having family and friends witness one of the most important events in our lives. We really feel that The Lighthouse has great energy for celebrating this occasion. We just can't wait see the people we love happy, eating, and dancing at this beautiful place! 

We are so looking forward to it too! 

Stay tuned for our next Couple's Spotlight next week :)
