A few months back, I had the pleasure of meeting Ana Gonzalez from Berry Beautiful Creations at an AFWPI Mixer. I met her because as I was walking past one of the tables, I saw her apples and immediately fell in love with her product. They are the most creative, and pretty apples I’ve ever seen. And I thought to myself…”Oh…I need to meet the person that created these!” So, I took a moment to look over the apples, and I introduced myself to Ana.

Over these past few months, I’ve been communicating with Ana back and forth via e-mails and Facebook. And when she called upon me to photograph her apples, I was more than pleased. I just love how detailed each one of these apples are. Each one is hand decorated! I know she puts a lot of time into her artwork, and I can appreciate her dedication to her craft.

So here are just a few images from the product shoot we did this weekend:

Not only do these apples look beautiful, they taste GREAT too! Ana let me take a few home after the shoot and I just gobbled them up! These apples make wonderful gifts for weddings, showers, or any other special event you may have. They come in a variety of colors and Ana will work with you to go along with themes you may have.

Mardi Gras Networking Mixer at The White House Event Center

The White House Event Center is a fairly new venue for weddings and is surely a site to see.  No description can really do it justice.  you just have to see it to believe it! A one-half scale replica of the White House in Washington D.C., built in 1978 as a museum, now along with the West Wing provides one of the best facilities for banquets, corporate events, weddings, receptions, quinceaneras and school functions. This facility is located on a 10 acre site with ample parking.

Four different venues are available to meet a wide range of entertainment needs. The White House is well suited for large corporate events. The West Wing has a more intimate “night club” feel for social events. The Rose Garden provides a beautiful outdoor setting for weddings, quinceaneras and  outdoor dining.

The White House/ West Wing complex can accommodate capacities ranging from 100 to 800 guests. In addition the Adventure City theme park can be used for private events for families or transformed for teens at night for up to 3000 people. The Theme Park is located on the property and is available as a separate rental or included with one of the other venues. 

Our mixer for wedding professionals was surely a hit with a Mardi Gras theme.  Atmosphere Entertainment provided some awesome New Orleans tunes, Chef Anahita prepared traditional N'awlins grub, Country Garden Caterers poured some signature southern beverages such as the Mint Julep and Hurricane!  And Party Booths supplied the always fun photo booth with Mardi Gras props!  Thanks to all who helped make this event a success.

Oh, and I must mention that C.W. Originals gave away 6 exhibitor booths for their upcoming shows.  Can't beat that for the price of admission!  Be sure and come to our April mixer at the new Contempo in Irvine.  They will be raffling off more show booths then too!
