Vendor Spotlight On: SD Events

This week’s Vendor Spotlight is on SD Events! Stay tuned for Wednesday’s blog post featuring their beautiful work.

1. How did your business come to be?

I was public relations for many years and we planned many events for our clients. I realized that I loved the event planning aspect and decided it was something I wanted to pursue.

2. What are the services you offer?

We provide event planning, design and marketing consultation. We plan weddings, nonprofit galas, bar and bat mitzvahs, anniversary or birthday parties – any event where you want a celebration! In working with our clients, we secure the right event professionals, define their ‘couple style’ so we can create a style board and coordinate all the logistics. We recently created a concept board where clients can put up photos they like – either from our library or their own – and stick them to the board to use as inspiration. It’s like an interactive Pinterest, but much more focused so you can really determine what your style is and what makes the most sense. Many times there are too many photos and ideas and it ends up not being cohesive. Clients then get confused as to what they really like and what their style is.

For many of our nonprofits we also help manage their social media and marketing efforts to make sure they have a consistent brand and keeping top of mind with donors.

3. Where are you located and how far will you travel to provide your service?

We are located in Wellesley, MA but we travel! We’ve actually done events in Costa Rica, Miami and Brooklyn, NY.

4. How far in advance do you recommend clients to book?  

At the very least 3 months. We want to be able to develop the flow, create the design concept together and secure the right team. This takes time!

5. What is one piece of advice you always give to brides?

Enjoy the planning process as much as the wedding day. It should be enjoyable, fun and something you’ll look back on as a really special time in your life that you got to spend with family and friends.

Ombre Purple and Emerald Green

Ombre purple pops against cream and emerald green in the new event space at the New Bedford Whaling Museum.

The bride loved the regal elegance of purple and being that it was an autumn wedding, she chose aborigine as the focal hue. Olive trees emerged from glass vases that were set upon long farm tables, while smaller floral arrangements in various shades of purple and cream were scattered throughout providing depth and color. Purple wine glasses served as a fun pop to the table and matched the linen napkins perfectly. The table design continued onto the walls of the event space thanks to the talented lighting design of Ormonde Productions. “The New Bedford Whaling Museum offers such a unique setting. The reception took place in the new addition overlooking the harbor. The views from the two decks were spectacular — it was the icing on the cake!” exclaimed the mother of the bride and event planner, Kathy Sheridan. Guests feasted on a delicious dinner crafted by Russell Morin Catering & Events before dancing the night away!

Crimson Reds and Glistening Gold

Crimson reds and glistening gold symbolize romance and grandeur for this traditional Hindu weddings at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.

Upon first glance of the ballroom, Anjali knew she wanted something elaborate, grand, and regal. Having no particular color theme in mind, Anjali looked to her event planner Alexis, from Unique Weddings by Alexis to aid her in finding the right talent for every detail of her wedding. Rich, crimson red and dark pink rose petals and white votive candles lined the aisle leading up to two white and gold tufted chairs where the bride and groom were to be married. Magnificent gold urns were bursting with an abundance of red roses surrounded the chairs. In the reception area, smaller arrangements of roses perched upon gold candelabras and laced with crystals decorated every table. Many votive candles were scattered throughout the ballroom creating a warm and romantic ambiance. “The bold and rich color palette complimented by the twinkle from the crystal accents was the perfect fit for the bride’s playful and sparkling personality,” Alexis described.
