Real Weddings: Hiba and Asif
Date: November 27, 2015
It was our pleasure to work with this couple. Hiba contacted SCEP towards the middle of their planning process and we helped put a framework around their event with vendor management, timeline and script. Her calm demeanor made planning process a snap. Hiba looked beautiful in a custom-made Pakistani designer outfit with makeup by talented Nida Gazi from BeautybyNG. Hiba & Asif wanted an elegant, romantic event and they got just that with the help of 2CreateDesigns! A one-of-a-kind couple, they shined on their special day. Check out their pictures below!

Finding your Perfect Wedding Photographer
SO you’re engaged. Check. You have a ring. Check. You selected your venue and the date. Check. What comes next? Well it’s time to sit down and make a list— I would find a cozy corner near a window and bring along a hot cup of tea. If you are working with a So Cal Event Planner, she would most likely go through this list with you but you should do your homework regardless. List some of your own must-have wedding features, in order of importance. For many brides, the primary component is a wedding photographer. Regardless of budget, photos and video are permanent. They capture the emotions of an entire day and make it an everlasting experience. However, every photographer differs from the next just as every wedding has its own character. Here’s how to find the perfect photographer for your wedding. Click to continue reading and for pictures from different photographers and their styles! (more…)
Real Weddings: Anas and Bushra
Venue: Doubletree by Hilton Anaheim
Date: August 16 2015
We had the pleasure of meeting Bushra and Anas at another client’s wedding. Bushra mentioned how her own event was coming up quickly and she was “looking for a friend with experience and creative insight to help with [her] wedding”. We quickly became friends with Bushra’s easygoing personality and Anas’ charming demeanor and gained their trust as clients. We met with Bushra and reviewed décor ideas and timelines.
Essentially, we organized two separate wedding events— one for the men and one for the women, a common occurrence in many Arab weddings. Each banquet hall needed our full attention, décor, two separate DJs, two photographers, (and dance floors of course). Imagine how much planning goes into one event – now imagine two simultaneous events!
Together we created a stunning wedding tailored to Bushra’s every need. Her Arab background and modern American twist gave way to a wedding filled with great people, an amazing program and an exciting night of fun and laughter. Check out sneak peeks of Bushra and Anas’ remarkable wedding!
Candy buffet tables have been gaining popularity over the past few years. And why wouldn’t they? They’re adorable and delicious! Taking the candy buffet concept and combining it with the need of COLOR, we decided to take a stab at Lolipop Centerpieces. It’s a perfect mix of a whimsical theme, tons of color, and sweet treats!
