Pop Prom Parties!

It’s back to school time and that means it’s time for homecoming proposals, mums, and voting on prom themes! We love the creativity and originality that goes into high school social events, which make them some of our favorite things to plan. There are only so many events that can have fun themes like Avatar or even The Beetles!

Scroll down to see some highlights from some of our favorite proms!

 

First Class Flight, Travel Theme

We loved these daring seniors for thinking outside of the box! The Frontiers of Flight Museum was such a cool and unique venue, perfect for this first class theme.

This prom truly felt like another world! The forest projection on the wall, along with all of the live greenery made us feel like we were in Pandora.

Laissez les bons temps rouler! Nothing screams party more than New Orleans during Mardi Gras! This prom brought the Big Easy to Dallas for the evening with this Mardi Gras ball.

Modern Wedding with a Pop of Color

There’s nothing we love more than a bride who dares to be different and Heather was just that bride! This modern wedding was made daringly different with a color scheme of bright violet and soft peach with gold accents. Heather’s vision didn’t include many flowers which gave us an awesome opportunity to get creative. We made a space with balloons and lots of candles to generate a more modern vibe, with only one large floral on the head table. What was more beautiful than this fabulous reception space? Heather’s stunning Kleinfeld gown that she got all the way from New York City!

Don’t be fooled this wedding wasn’t only gorgeous, it was also a super fun time! Guest enjoyed champagne escort cards, shots, and donuts on light sabers! One of our favorite parts? The delicious progressive dinner, serving everything from salads to burgers, brought out on golden bar carts. The highlight of the night had to be Heather and her father’s epic choreographed dance to “Bad Mama Jama”!

We can’t ask for better clients and would like to thank Cody for his service in the US Army! Thank you for serving our country Cody and thank you Heather for supporting him! Have fun in Hawaii you two!

Their love story

Cody and Heather have been best friends since their freshman year of high school! They hung out with one another all the time and even went to senior prom together. During college the two went their separate ways while Heather was in Missouri and Cody at West Point. Eventually the two reconnected and after a whirlwind trip from Spain to New York, Heather knew Cody was the one.

Cody’s proposal was practically perfect! After ice skating around Rockefeller Center, a friend suggested they visit the giant Christmas tree to take some pictures. Cody “accidentally” dropped his glove and when Heather looked over, he was on one knee ready to propose. A huge crowd gathered around and cheered for the two after Heather said yes! Cody then arranged a limo to take them around the summer before a nice dinner and bottle service at a rooftop bar overlooking Midtown Manhattan!
