VENDOR SPOTLIGHT: Shop Candy Crush

VENDOR SPOTLIGHT: Shop Candy Crush

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.

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! 

COUPLE'S SPOTLIGHT: Tabitha and Ross

COUPLE'S SPOTLIGHT: Tabitha and Ross

We first met Tabitha and Ross over a year ago--we can hardly believe their big day is already in less than a month! Read below to learn a bit more about these two cuties.

1. HOW DID YOU TWO MEET?

Rowing! I had recently moved to the area and I had made a girlfriend who suggested that I come out and row with her. Since I had never tried it I thought I would give it a go. I started rowing with the women's team regularly and one night we had an open seat in the boat, so the coach reached out to the mixed team for participation and little did I know, but my future husband showed up that night.

2. WHAT'S THE PROPOSAL STORY?

Ross was rowing on the men's team for the Alcatraz Island race, which is in very difficult water. I had volunteered to be the bow hook- which is essentially the coach/cheerleader who sits behind the rowers and encourages and corrects them. That year, Alcatraz was terrible!! Only one team crossed the finish line, the rest had to be towed in or use a separate entrance. We were on the water for about 2 and half hours, but going nowhere. After that we decided to hang around the city for the day and it ended up coming up. I don't think he had planned it that way, but it was perfect.

3. WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO BOOK THE LIGHTHOUSE FOR YOUR BIG DAY?

 Love at first sight! We had looked at several venues and nothing seemed to fit our personality or style. When we walked in to the Lighthouse it was perfect. Simple, yet fantastically elegant and right on the water- where we used to row together. It just seemed perfect!

4. WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO ON YOUR BIG DAY?

Family! I'm so excited to bring our families together.

 

And we are lucky to be able to witness the joining of your two families! See you next month, Tabitha and Ross!
