Success: 2015 Benny Awards at Fairlane Station

Hey everybody!

Last night we hosted our 7th annual Benny Awards for our fabulous and amazing couples.  This year's event was held at Fairlane Station in Springdale.  The space was perfect for our party with the gray room serving as our bar and Photo Booth with a table of sweet from Shelby Lynn's Cake Shoppe (lots of pics of these tasties below!), and then opening up the big room for our awards show.

My favorite, Retrotender, made a couple OUTSTANDING custom cocktails based on our favorite drinks.  Seriously... if you're a Benny Bride... you MUST have Brandon come to your wedding!!!

Me with my two best friends... Kirsten, then Tom (who was our DJ, and can DJ your wedding... email me for details!)

The big room was transformed into a gorgeous lounge thanks to Eventures Party Rentals!

Jennifer at Shelby Lynn's made an amazing spread of yummies.  And Julie at Jules Design brought in some beautiful florals for us!

Mini Bundt cakes!  Double dipped strawberries, french macaroons, and custom cookies!

How cool are these chairs?!  And a day bed to relax!

Another shot of the beautiful mini bundt cakes from Shelby Lynn's...

My favorite two treats: on the left, white chocolate dipped oreos... but SUPER fancy!
On the right cupcakes with 24 KARAT GOLD FLAKES!  Are you serious???

After the awards, we surprised everybody with all-we-could-eat street tacos... they were insane!

We brought no backdrop... no props... we call it "Blank Booth!"  :)  Super silly and awesome!

SUCH a fun night!!!  Thanks to all who came, laughed at my non-funny jokes, and drank and ate and had a merry time!  We adore you and are so thankful for you!!

Talk to you soon,
