Shayla stood in the large brick-walled room that served as the bridal dressing room at BLOC Venue. With open spaces of brick and concrete and gorgeous light streaming through the large windows. this venue is a dream. The large venue was a perfect canvas for creating a beautiful wedding.
Shayla wore an ivory off-the-shoulder mermaid style gown with lace overlay that looked ethereal on her. Anthony looked suave in his blue suit jacket paired with a yellow bow tie.
These bedazzled ivory Chuck Taylors highlighted the bride’s unique style. With the date and her new last name on the back they’re a great keepsake. These shoes were made for dancing!
Makeup Artist Gierra Jones helped enhance Shayla’s glow as her bridesmaids got her dress ready. Shayla stepped into the gown and giggled with happiness as her friends buttoned her into it.
Every detail, from the invitations, to the jewelry, to the sweet beaded sandals the bride wore was perfect.
Shayla stood behind her father, waiting for him to turn around and see his baby girl in her gown. Unquestionably, this moment brought on all the emotions as they welled up with tears.
Anthony got ready in the lounge along with their two sons, Aubrey and Riley. The three men looked positively stunning in their bow ties.
Without a doubt, one of our favorite moments is The First Look session. Intimate and special, these moments give the bride and groom a chance to connect before the ceremony to just be together.
BLOC Venue is a coordinator’s dream because of its open room design. These beautiful empty open spaces enabled talented event planners at Events By Ev and the floral artists at NC Event Designs to create designs to match the couple’s vision of their day.
The venue was flocked in truly breathtaking arrangements of red and white roses with dried pampas grass, fairy lights, and floating candles. Not only did this compliment the season, but also provided an air of romance that added to the love in the room.
Obviously, Anthony felt suave as he and his best man strolled in in GQ style. As they gave each other a handshake and a salute, they both strutted the aisle with ease and style…and a smile.
Anthony beamed as he watched his bride walk toward him on her father’s arm.
In view of family and friends, underneath the glowing market lights, Anthony and Shayla said, “I do.”
Following the emotional ceremony, the chairs and tables were moved into place so the celebration could begin. Beneath the warm light of the wrought iron chandelier, the burgundy table settings and the beautiful centerpieces looked rich and elegant.
In addition to the flowers and candles, the reception had a fun Instagram station and, of course, a bar. The talented Shimmer and Stain created these modern signs for guests to follow.
Couples today are opting for less traditional guest books that they can display in their homes forever. Shayla and Anthony went with this unique sign board that guests happily signed.
BLOC Venue’s lounge area provided a glamorous feel to an already gorgeous group. Naturally, Dee and Kris took full advantage of the richness of the brick wall and leather couches in contrast to the amazing natural light from the large windows.
Shayla and Anthony along with their “I Do Crew” looked flawless in their fitted jackets and off-the-shoulder dresses paired with fur shoulder stoles.
Without a Doubt, the incomparable DJs at Beat Fleets DJs know how to get a party started. The couple danced their way in to greet their guests and set the tone for the night.
Accordingly, as the toasts flowed, so did the tears.
Unquestionably the finest tacos in Northern California, Chando’s Tacos provided the feast for the evening.
Following their first dance, the couple enjoyed a little smooch before cutting into their modernly elegant two-tiered cake created for them by the artists at Freeport Bakery.
Along with the cake, the couple also offered a dessert bar for their guests to enjoy.
What’s a fashionable wedding without at least one wardrobe change? Not only did Shayla change into her fun Converse to dance, but she also changed into a completely new and just as stunning dress.
And the party raged on!
