Sacramento Grand Ballroom | Nod of Gratitude to the entire Professional Vendor Team from Parents of the Bride


Enjoy a sweet, wonderful and blissful nod of gratitude from our Parents-of-the-Bride ~ the entire team of vendors so enjoy hearing their heartfelt sentiment regarding ALL of our professional efforts on behalf of their families!  We all had a blast working together.

It was truly a fabulous wedding event this past June. We loved working with everyone on this wedding ~ and a hearty congratulations to Katie & Sean ~ the night was magic!

Dear Dream Makers ~

Mr. and Mrs. Thiers are successfully off and at this moment in the air on their way to Italy and we want to thank you for making their dream wedding become a reality.

Debra, the Ballroom looked spectacular and gorgeous and simply magical. The lighted hedges added so much more than we could have envisioned!
Shelley (Floral Artistry), the florals (all of them, from the elegant urn arrangements down to the little flower girl head wreath) were so absolutely perfect and gorgeous! As I told Debra, it was all I could do to keep from crying at having to leave them when we headed home at the end of the night! Katie’s bouquet was the most beautiful we have ever seen. Thankfully, we know that we have them documented by the best photographer and videographer for us to enjoy in pictures forever. Matt (Extreme Productions), everyone had so much fun and we have you to thank for that. Our officiant, Grandpa Bill, was so impressed with your professionalism and the way you made him feel comfortable and ready to go; and everyone loved your outgoing and friendly personality. Esther (Divine Desserts by Aguirre), the wedding cake was fabulous!! Just fabulous!! Again, I am so glad we will have pictures of it to keep forever. And it was absolutely delicious. The groom’s cake was a complete hit with Sean and with everyone else at the rehearsal dinner. It was so perfectly what we hoped it would be – so fun and so delicious. Jessica (SacBallroom), you were always so helpful and available, and we would like to thank you again for that; and please tell Jeremy that our guests raved about the deliciousness of both the appetizers and the dinner selections, and it was obvious to anyone watching the guests dancing that they certainly enjoyed the cocktails which were presented beautifully by your bartenders. Phill (Phillip Alan Films), you and our bride and groom “hit it off” so well when you met just before the wedding.
We already knew your work would be fabulous, and with the interests and likes it turns out that you share, we are even more excited to see the wedding video than we were before they met you. (Especially after watching your assistant scale the walls of the Ballroom to get the over head sparkler shot!).

Sarah (Sarah Dawson Photography), you always have such a pleasant, calm, smiling, positive presence about you, which is just what we needed on wedding day; and it was obvious just watching from a distance as you worked that these are going to be fantastically gorgeous and timeless wedding pictures.

Seriously, we can’t thank you ALL enough,

Mike and  Kathy Breining ~ Parents of the Bride
(Mr. Sean & Mrs. Katie too)

Northridge Country Club | In Honor of Independence Day: Ben and Molly ~ Their First Year Flew By, Literally!

Congratulations on Your Anniversary!
Written by Allison Hopkins for Très Fabu Event Planning and Design
It’s not everyday that you meet a bride and groom who both fly C-17s for the United States Air Force. This 174 ft. aircraft is used for rapid strategic airlift of troops and cargo and can also perform tactical airlift, medical evacuation, and airdrop missions.

But on June 5th, 2010, Ben and Molly had a much different mission: to become husband and wife, and to celebrate this unity among family and friends in a beautiful ceremony.

“I wish I could do it all over again,” says Molly, remembering the special day at Northridge Country Club in Fair Oaks, California. “I loved everything about it!”

One hundred and fifty guests, including a bridal party of ten bridesmaids and ten groomsmen, gathered at the country club at 6:30 p.m. to witness the joining of families. Reverend Ed Donaghy ( performed a nondenominational Christian ceremony, which included a handfasting ceremony while the couple promised their vows. Tank, the couple’s English Bulldog, had a very important role as the ringbearer!

Wearing a Priscilla of Boston gown, Molly made her entrance down the aisle of white rose petals. Her dress was strapless with a sweetheart neckline, a ruched bodice, and a modified A-line skirt.

“I have never felt more beautiful than I did that day!” says Molly.

From the beginning of the ceremony to the dinner, reception, and wee hours of the night, an amazing team executed this flawless event:

Très Fabu Event Planning and Design

[Molly] The wedding literally could not be done without Debra and Très Fabu Events. I lived in Seattle at the time, Ben lived in Oklahoma, and my mom was the only person actually in Sacramento. While I was deployed, my mom and sister researched wedding planners and fell in love with Debra.

Debra and her team were always professional, and made me feel like a queen. Debra listened to all my ideas and offered fantastic suggestions to help me create a beautiful atmosphere. Black was the main color used, incorporated in the table decorations, the chairs, the cake, the bridal party, the flowers (by Shelley McArdle of Floral Artistry,…white and champagne colors accented the black very nicely…but it was not too overdone.

CinZo Photography

[Molly] The pictures were fantastic, and Cindi and Lorenzo were amazing. They blended into the background and were able to capture all the events as they were happening…nothing felt too posed.

Divine Desserts

[Molly] The cake was EXACTLY what I wanted. The cake was four tiers, chocolate mousse with white buttercream frosting. I LOVE buttercream and mousse! It was so good!!!

Extreme Productions

[Molly] The lighting was absolutely perfect. It created such a romantic mood.

Philosophia (Paperie)

[Molly] I loved the way the seating chart, programs, and table markers used the stripes and polka dots from the invitations to keep with the theme.

Northridge Country Club

[Molly] The country club provided the appetizers and dinner, and it was delicious.

At the end of the night, Debra [Très Fabu Events] had her team deliver In-N-Out burgers and french fries to the party (from three local restaurants)!

Pop Fiction Band

The couple shares many fond memories of dancing to the music that was performed by Pop Fiction (an 8-piece “party band extraordinaire”) during the reception. Their first dance was to “This Kind of Love” by Sister Hazel; Molly danced with her father to “I hope you dance”; with her mother to “My Girl”; and was hoisted in the air, along with her hubby, during “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey.

“After seeing how wonderful it is to have a wedding planner [Très Fabu Event Planning and Design], I will always advise my friends to hire Debra and her team,” says Molly. “I felt so calm and reassured knowing there was someone who cared about my wedding as much as I did.”

Ben and Molly honeymooned in Playa del Carmen for a week and had a wonderful time. After four years of long distance (including their first year of marriage), the couple moved to Charleston, South Carolina and is enjoying their time together. They are so thankful for such a beautiful wedding and the support and love of their friends and family.

Tres Fabu Has Been Featured in Wedding Chicks!

Event: Wedding of Seanna & Garrett
Day: November 10th, 2010
Location: Citizen Hotel, Sacramento, CA 

Seanna and Garrett  —  A Vintage Romance With a Modern Day Twist 
Written by Allison Hopkins for Très Fabu Event Planning and Design

The Theme
Seanna described the vision of her wedding as shabby, elegant, whimsy, and vintage… with a dash of girly-girl!

The Venue
The Citizen Hotel in downtown Sacramento, California is a boutique hotel known for its fabulous ‘rat pack’ forties charm! The venue was perfect; it had the rustic brick and the black grilled framed windows Seanna adored, coupled with the soft, permanent fabric-lined rooftop on the hotel’s Metropolitan Terrace. A truly perfect backdrop.

The Decor

  • A table with past wedding pictures from many family members welcomed the guests when they came off the elevators. This table also had a fabulous hat from the early 80s that Seanna’s mother wore on her wedding day. It received many wild comments!
  • A vintage frame from the 40s with a welcome sign was hanging in a tall iron birdcage stand; another table had a vintage chandelier donned with candles in silver fleur-de-lis candleholders.
  • A Wedding Wishes book from the 40s, laden with pearls; a tall stand filled with little pearls; a crown; and a silver tray with S&G tags underneath a dome of glass.
  • “Thank You” paddles and an “S&G” sign was hung over the bar on a vintage mirror.
  • Heart-shaped escort cards were showcased during the cocktail hour to direct guests to their dinner table.
  • Wooden table numbers had been created by the bride with supplies from local craft stores in Portland, Oregon. Utilizing her love of paper, she found scrapbook paper pieces (different in their patterns but similar in the color palate) and she painted all the wooden numbers and wooden frames in white, and assembled them all together. They truly added a perfect element of charm to each table.
  • The wedding menus were handwritten and greeted each guest when they found their table. Simple and charming.
  • The champagne linens on the tables had a creamy damask pattern running throughout that served as a wonderful base for the various pink, cream, and white florals of different heights—these arrangements were placed in vintage mercury glass containers, some new and some old. Soft pink satin napkins and  silver chivari chairs, which tied in with the floral containers, complemented the table linens.

The Flowers
The flowers encompassed her love of pinks (some soft and brighter hues), creams, and whites; all in both new vintage silver looking vases and actual vintage vases. Her bouquet was tied in vintage lace and modern day satin ribbon, with a vintage pearl broach and a picture of her and her sweet Dad. He unfortunately lost his four year battle to cancer a few months after hiring our Tres Fabu Events entourage and the whole wedding team took to Seanna with extra “wedding wings” to carry her through to the day.

The Cake
Seanna’s inspirational image for the cake design was all pink — bright pinks, pink feathers, pink everything. Debra (Très Fabu Events) took this design and reworked it. She added more cream color into the concept of the cake, cream diamond tufts, pink flowers, a vintage crown jewel from the 20s, and jewel pieces to make it slightly more appropriate for a wedding. Debra kept in mind Seanna’s vision of “shabby/elegant/whimsy/vintage/with a dash of girly-girl,” as she would state throughout the planning process to everyone involved. Each side of the cake had a double handled vintage silver tray with two apothecary jars filled with various candies (all in pink), and silver organza bags for the guests to fill to their hearts desire.

Viaggio Estate and Winery | Congratulations to Brent and Jillian Meinyer on their First Anniversary!

Written by Allison Hopkins for Très Fabu Event Planning and Design

A woman named Anna Akhmatova once said, “Italy is a dream that keeps returning for the rest of your life.”

At Viaggio Winery in Lodi, California, miles and miles from the small towns of Italy, a couple’s dream of an Italian/Versaille inspired wedding came to life. For Brent and Jillian Meinyer, this type of wedding was a vision they shared—but the couple had no idea how perfect and real it could become on the breezy summer evening of June 19.

“Every minute and detail was crisply carried out to our benefit by Debra and her whole ‘Dream Team,’” says Jillian. “They can take your lives and pick out so many moments that they know will mean the world to you later.”

The private estate, surrounded by vineyards, orchards, and the Mokelumne River, set the romantic feel for the evening…while Très Fabu and the amazing vendors that were selected for this day each played an important part in executing the fabulous event.

“We based the entire wedding off of Jillian’s original color palate of champagnes, ivories, soft apricots and a dash of petal pink,” says Debra Hiebèrt, owner of Très Fabu. “Then when she found the gown of her dreams—that’s when I went into overdrive design—and launched off of Shelley’s florals as well.”

Shelley McArdle from Floral Artistry started her design based on a single photo that Jillian had selected. From there, she created elegant and vintage arrangements…roses and hydrangeas were used abundantly, and shiny ribbons and sparkly rhinestones added a perfect touch to the flowers. Each flower girl and junior bridesmaid carried her own purse made purely of flowers!

“Shelly is such an amazing person,” says Jillian. “She really stretched every dollar to make the most outstanding floral arrangements that we have ever seen. She made us feel like we were the most special people on earth.”

Brent’s black Armani tuxedo was complemented by a calla lily boutonniere with rhinestones. And then came the bride, who according to her new husband, “…absolutely knocked everyone out with how stunningly beautiful she looked!”

In a strapless, ivory gown that truly captured the romance of the evening, Jillian held a bouquet of light pink and cream roses, and cream calla lilies, and made her way down an aisle covered in pink and cream rose petals arranged in a swirl design.

“When she first saw her bouquet, she [Jillian] was in aw…she kept saying ‘this is just so beautiful,’” says McArdle.

Pastor Kevin Brown from Lodi met the beautiful Bride and Groom at the altar. Beforehand, he asked the couple to come up with five reasons to marry each other, and planned on including them in the ceremony. To their amusement, he repeated the reasons almost word for word—keeping the ceremony fun, meaningful, and most of all, memorable.

After the pronouncement of husband and wife, Jillian and Brent had a fun surprise for the crowd. “At the end of our ceremony—Brent has always been a long time Indiana Jones fan—so we played the theme music as we made our way down the aisle together on our new adventure as newlyweds,” says Jillian.

Everyone was shocked when an aerial confetti streamer launched as well! “They were crying and laughing…it was the perfect touch by Matt at Extreme Productions,” says Jillian.

Extreme Productions created a customized entertainment and production company for the entire event…each song was hand selected, personalized bridal party introductions were created, and the soundtrack for each scene had an energy and feel that was reflective of the moment. There was even a 3D moon projection on the wall near the cake (Jillian’s request)!

“As soon as we secured services with Brent and Jillian, we went right to work on getting to know their personality, their story, their interests, style, and taste,” says Matt Brys from Extreme Productions. “From there, we were able to build out the ‘experience’ of the day (the music, energy, MC work, lighting, production, announcements, etc… and we added in extra flair with lighting and confetti cannons for that WOW factor!”

An indoor reception followed the ceremony, with beautiful candlelit tables, gold plates, and gold chairs. Guests enjoyed catering provided by Viaggio Winery, which included several appetizers, filet mignon, shrimp, portobello mushroom, and lamb. The fabulous meal was followed by Divine Desserts’ scrumptious three-tiered ivory cake, with details of ivory roses around each layer.

Brent and Jillian started the dancing for the night with “It’s Your Love” by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. With the moon projected in the background, and the lighting dark and intimate, the couple was truly “Dancin’ in the dark, middle of the night, takin’ your heart and holdin’ it tight…”

Capturing all the special moments, from the private glances between the newly married couple to the fun and glory of the night, was Cinzo Photography. “We could not believe the amount of detail and thought that was put into taking each shot,” says Brent. “They went above and beyond for us!”

As the day is now a precious memory for the couple (and also was captured in detail by Thomas Hughes Video) Brent and Jillian are both very pleased with their decision to hire a wedding planner. “It was most important for us, as the Bride and Groom, to truly enjoy our day, our love, our way… and it was worth the extra amount of money to have someone else carry the burden of the minor details,” says Brent.

If there was just one word to describe how they felt that day? Overjoyed…that they had a tremendous amount of family and friends to share in their enjoyment and love, and overjoyed with one another as absolute soul mates.

Matt Brys agrees that this day was perfect in everyway. “Très Fabu spent countless hours ensuring she [Debra] knew the vibe and feel of the client and designed a masterpiece that made Brent and Jillian speechless,” says Brys.

According to Brent and Jillian, “You’re not getting married if you’re not ‘Très Fabu’”!!

Serrano Country Club | A Custom Made Royal Napkin Ring created on behalf of Tres Fabu Event Planning and Design for a Truly Royal Event

Written by Allison Hopkins for Très Fabu Event Planning and Design

As Très Fabu Event Planning and Design approaches its mega April 23rd wedding, which will take place at Serrano Country Club in El Dorado Hills, California with 250 guests, the wedding planner would like to share a sneak peak of the evening’s napkin rings — which were recently revealed on TV in Los Angeles!

Brian Worley, wedding planner for “Shedding for the Wedding” on the CW Television Network, showed KTLA viewers the dazzling custom napkin rings that were designed by Wildflower Linen specifically for Très Fabu Event’s upcoming wedding for clients Kasie and Thomas, along with the fabulous mother of the bride, Jann Bytheway.   The wedding celebration will be held at Serrano Country Club.  An International Filmaker will be traveling from Europe to catpure the entire day and this glorious napkin ring in detail!!   The wedding will feature an array of blues, platinums, blacks, and whites, and the napkin rings will definitely add a sparkle to each table!

Worley was invited by KTLA to give his version of what the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton will look like. The napkin rings are a replica of the oval, 18-carat sapphire and diamond ring once belonging to Princess Diana that has now been passed down to Kate as her engagement ring.

Wine and Roses Hotel | Justin and Alissa One Year Later

Wine, Rose Petals and Musical Love Notes

Written by Allison Hopkins for Très Fabu Event Planning and Design 

As Justin and Alissa Creel approach their one-year anniversary, the couple is excited to retell the events that made their wedding so priceless. The evening of April 17, 2010 was a magical night for them. At Wine and Roses in Lodi, California, the couple celebrated their love and unity among 160 friends and family.

The design of this beautiful spring wedding (by Très Fabu) consisted of pinks, browns, and creams throughout the flowers, linens, programs, and apparel. Alissa wore a strapless, classis A-line dress that was simple and elegant, with a bubble hem on the bottom that “made her look like she was floating.” Justin was stunning in a single button tuxedo with a white vest and a white tie. Bridesmaids were in pink; groomsmen in brown vests and ties.

The couple chose to have a modern, non-denominational Protestant ceremony that lasted about 20 minutes. Pastor Jon Holmes married them in a ceremony that included live music sung by a close friend of the bride.

After the ceremony, Justin and Alissa went with Debra Hiebèrt, owner of Très Fabu, for the “private reveal” of the reception hall and a romantic dance together.

 “We never would have realized the importance of this if Debra hadn’t scheduled it in,” says Justin. “But now we realize that your wedding day flies by in a flash and having some private time to enjoy the beauty and atmosphere that Debra had created in the reception hall was very important to us.”

As the evening advanced into a fabulous reception with dinner and dancing, Matt Brys from Extreme Productions kept the mood going with excellent mc skills and a variety of music requested by the bride and groom.

Dinner was prepared by Wine and Roses and included a piece of grilled chicken and a piece of filet mignon on each plate. According to the couple and many of their guests, it was “to die for!”

“It was one of the best meals I have ever had, hands down,” says Justin. “We received multiple compliments on how good the food was, even from friends of ours that are chefs.”

Along with a delicious meal, each of the vendors played an important role in creating the look and feel that the couple wanted for their special evening.

“Not only is Debra’s creativity unmatched, but her contacts—florists, photographers, DJs, linen companies, etc.—made planning and executing the wedding substantially easier, allowing us more time to enjoy the process,” says Alissa. “We never had to worry that our vendors wouldn’t show or wouldn’t come through.”

Shelly McArdle provided amazing florals and according to the bride, “they were beyond perfect!!” CinZo Photography was “wonderful to work with” and “did a fabulous job of capturing the wedding.”

The couple topped the celebration off by honeymooning on a beautiful cruise ship through Rome, Naples, Sicily, Athens, Rhodes, Ephesus, and Alexandria…a perfect tour of the Mediterranean.

One year later, they report back that there are “no babies yet” but plenty to keep them occupied. They continue to work full-time and grow with their careers.

One last thought from the couple in regards to hiring a wedding planner. “You don’t know, what you don’t know.” The essence of his statement is that it’s impossible to know everything that will impact your wedding day.

“One of the most important aspects of working with Debra was knowing that she would be able to take care of any unexpected situations that might arise during or after the wedding,” says Alissa. “Being as prepared as we were allowed us both to enjoy and appreciate the day, making it a priceless memory.”

Catta Vedera Country Club | Steven & Van Treasure a Wonderful Video of their Magical Night

Wedding: Catta Verdera Country Club, Lincoln, California
Date: Saturday, October 30th, 2010

Written by Allison Hopkins for Très Fabu Event Planning and Design

The last weekend in October wasn’t about costumes and trick-or-treaters for Steven and Van…it was about creating memories that would last a lifetime. Luckily, the entire evening was captured perfectly by videographer Phill Sheffield of Phillip Alan Films.

As the video shows, it was a beautiful outside ceremony followed by an amazing inside reception at the country club. The couple had been determined to keep the ceremony outside (while the forecast promised rain) and were both completely full of grace as the showers began. They didn’t skip a beat.

“It truly showed who they really are as individuals and people,” says Debra Hiebèrt of Très Fabu. “If more individuals were like Van and Steven, this world would be truly amazing! Not everyone would treat the ceremony portion as they did.”

Among the evening’s events, Reverend Nesbitt left the couple with courageous words of wisdom, and Steven’s father took a few moments during the reception to congratulate his son and welcome his new daughter-in-law.

“We are so proud of you. You have grown into a wonderful man and we are so happy that you met this beautiful, smart, respectful young lady. Van, you are like a daughter to us. We are glad that you are now part of the family. We love you both very much.”

As George Sans so easily states, “There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.”

The Sheraton Grand Sacramento | Justin and Stephanie Castillo Celebrate 1 Year

The happy couple is still treasuring their perfect

Italian inspired courtyard wedding!

Anniversary: December 19

Written by Allison Hopkins for Très Fabu Event Planning and Design 

There was no question in their minds that a candlelit courtyard wedding was a must. It would be an ideal setting for uniting Stephanie’s Italian family with Justin’s Guatemalan side. A year later, they still can’t believe just how special it was.

Stephanie credits it to “the perfect storm of an amazing wedding planner and an amazing mother.”

The unbelievable transformation of the Sheraton Grand Sacramento into a quaint church ceremony followed by a romantic courtyard reception left the bride, groom, and their guests stunned. It involved 600 candles, amazing lighting effects, a fountain (complete with pavers and moss), ironwork candelabras, olive branches, fresh flowers, and sugared fruit. Elegant colors were used throughout the décor: antique gold, creamy ivory lace, olives, champagnes, and browns.

“I could not believe I was walking into the Sheraton Grand when those doors opened,” says Stephanie. “Wedding guests were taken to our very own church though lighting, décor, ambiance, and romantic candlelight.”

As Cat Stevens’ “Morning Has Broken” began to play, Justin and 190 guests turned to see Stephanie in a beautiful ivory lace gown coming down the aisle, escorted by her two brothers. The song was chosen in honor of her father who has passed, as it was his favorite music. The lighting in the room, which was created by Extreme Productions, set the feel of the last of the setting sun coming through the windows…truly perfect for their 5 o’clock wedding.

Father John Mabry married the couple in a traditional yet very personal ceremony. Stephanie and Justin chose readings from various religious and literary sources and after much thought, decided to exchange traditional vows.

“Something felt so right about saying the same vows as our parents and grandparents who were there with us that day (in body and spirit),” says Stephanie.

Following the ceremony was a cocktail hour in the private courtyard (the reception room) where guests enjoyed listening to a live Spanish acoustic guitarist, Jesse Christian Hendricks.

The “courtyard” itself was nothing short of magic…between the beautiful fountain in the center, the amazing head table, and the overall lighting effects: hanging market lights set the tone for the evening and gobo lights mimicked the shadows of leaves from the moonlight. Each table had unique containers collected from local antique stores: old copper pots and gorgeous urns, no two the same, were filled with olive branches, rosemary, spray roses, hydrangeas, pears, and grapes.

“It was like every one of the vendors went all out to do what they do best,” says Justin.

Dinner was catered by the Sheraton and included vegetarian and non-vegetarian options; the main course was portabella mushroom risotto timbale or Petaluma chicken filled with apple brioche stuffing. A three-tier cake followed, with chocolate grand marnier, triple chocolate, and the couple’s favorite, chocolate pistachio!

Looking back, the evening is an unforgettable memory for the couple, just as their first dance—“Memories Are Made of This” by Dean Martin—had promised. A year later, Stephanie and Justin are enjoying feeling even more connected and content to be with their soul mate. Stephanie is still loving her job as a special education preschool teacher and Justin continues to work with computer programming…and is thrilled to be getting a new drum set! The couple plans to celebrate Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Guatemala, along with their families.
