More and more couples are getting married on Friday evenings nowadays. Having a wedding on Friday night leaves the rest of the weekend open. Now, you can unwind and enjoy some quality time with close friends and family during an amazing brunch or gathering the next day!

With a Friday wedding you can get walking down that aisle a lot sooner than a prime Saturday night! Here at the CCB we have some amazing savings for a Friday evening wedding during peak season, as well as off-peak season savings. 

With the saving you are getting at your venue, you can afford to splurge on some extras you’ve always wanted! Perhaps you’ll upgrade that photography package or book a longer honeymoon!

All of your guests will love to blow off some steam at your big bash after a long work week! Start the weekend off right with a Friday Night Wedding!!

Now that your significant other has popped the question, it’s time to think about what kind of engagement photos that you two want to have. We think having an engagement shoot is great idea.  It’s important for you two to become comfortable with your photographer prior to your wedding. Another reason to have one is to use some of the photos for your upcoming wedding. We have seen some great uses for them as décor, guests books and even part of wedding favors. 

This is a great time for you two show off your personalities, or a hobby that you two enjoy doing together. You can incorporate this into your shoot whether it’s a prop or location. If you two are foodies, try having your favorite restaurant as your backdrop. If there is a place that is significant to you two, you can go there and reminisce and take photos. 

We love creative and unique photos, like shoots at your local Target, or winery, or if you two love to travel, why not take them while you two are jet setting! 

We hope this gives you inspiration for your  furture engagement shoot.

Thinking of having place cards for your wedding day? Well, you are in luck because we have found some creative alternatives to the traditional white folded place card.  These awesome ideas will certainly impress your guests, plus they are a great take away from your wedding day!


If you like the idea of the traditional white place card, you can elevate it to fit a more formal event, by adding beautiful calligraphy, then stamped with a gold seal. Another fun idea is to  add a personalized tag on a napkin with each guests names on it. It's a great way to finish off a formal look.  If florals are your thing, paper flowers with attendees’ names on them is perfect for a flower-filled event! Last but not least on our list is for the music lover. Hand paint wooden instruments with your wedding colors, arrange in alphabetical order! Super fun and creative and your guests will have a fun trinket to take home with them to remember your speical day!
