Recently we were honored to be a part of the culmination to the incredible, awe-inspiring journey of a wonderful young couple on their way to wedded matrimony, Tiffany and Caleb. Both individuals are extremely large-at-heart, and with a very important cause near and dear to them, they decided to do something a little different with their wedding. Rather than planning a “one day” event for their ceremony and reception, they wanted to put on a specially curated charity gala and benefit concert at the Wiltern Theatre here in Los Angeles instead.
This couple lives with the reality of the terrible and devastating genetic disease cystic fibrosis as a daily part of their life, as Caleb has personally been valiantly fighting this shattering condition since he was one years old. Calling it The Greatest Wedding Ever Donated (G.W.E.D.), together–with their generous fiscal sponsor The WayFarer Foundation, they hoped to utilize the sold-out local attendance, their story’s national exposure, and the overall platform of this special “big day” to encourage an open dialogue and raw/honest conversations about some very important, and sometimes difficult to discuss, prevalent social and medical issues. And in doing so, they also wanted to raise much needed money for research for their chosen non-profits for this event, including The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Global Genes.
The talented and innovative production designer that conceived the spectacular motif for this event was Art Arellanes with Arcadio Productions. He was tasked with finding a look for their staging that would work throughout the wide variety of elements to this marvelous event. Wanting drapes that will look exquisite by themselves, and also reflect light impeccably, he chose a mix of White Voile Drapes from our Delightably White Drapery Rental Collection. Starting with a beautiful single White Voile Pleated drapery leg to the center stage, he embellished the staging with his own tall columns of beaded crystals to give the stage an ethereal effect. And adding some of our attractive White Voile Swags (in 11’h x 16’w and 9’h x 11’w sizes), he was able to brilliantly bring the entire design together to produce an exceptionally remarkable stage. With a splash of some colorful lighting, he was able to completely change the look and feel of each individual section of the event (from the moving ceremony, to the exciting silent auction, to the enchanting singing performances, to the heartfelt speeches, and the fabulous reception in between).
We are extremely happy for this inspirational couple, Tiffany and Caleb, and wish them the very best of everything that life has to offer them. We know that the road ahead might be challenging for both of them, but we know that with one another—and the impressive amount of family and friends supporting them each step of the way—they will be able to address everything as it comes at them….. Together, and with the unfettered adoration that they sincerely have for one another.
