The death of wedding tradition is a fabulous thing for a bride with a creative mindset. It means that there is nothing that can’t be personalized to match the bride and groom’s exact tastes. But why does that have to end with just the bride and groom? In allowing your bridesmaid’s to pick their own attire for the event you can ensure they get their own voice on one small aspect of your special day. Not to mention, no bridesmaid grudges will be held against you for their choice in attire.
If this is a look you intend to use for your special day, bear in mind there is one rule to pulling off this look: The One Element Rule. Whether it’s your fabric, color, length, or strap, at least one element should carry through the same on all dresses to ensure a successfully style evening.
This winter bring the outdoors in by incorporating ice into your holiday centerpieces. Whether you’re in the midst of planning a wedding or a corporate event, wow your guests with flowers, candles, and other décor frozen in ice.
Working with ice means almost no limits when it comes to shape, size, and what’s being placed inside. You can place flowers or candles on top for a romantic feel or freeze ornaments inside a sculpted piece for a more holiday inspired look.
We all want that Carrie Bradshaw moment with the big beautiful bridal couture gown that is so strikingly different from anyone else’s. One in which Vogue finds us so fabulous that they need to give us our own feature bridal photoshoot. In order to give you your own Carrie Bradshaw moment and help set you apart from the rest, we’ve put together a short collection of various dresses and bridal attire that we find inspiring. The only thing we would love more than admiring these dresses is admiring one of these dresses on one of our own brides!

A belated congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Chavers! Your big day turned out so beautifully and we were thrilled to play such a large part in it. Did we mention how much we loved the vintage bed set on the lawn?

Thank you so much for choosing Tannenbaum to play such a large role in your special day. The vintage fire engine added the perfect personal touch and everything turned out beautifully. Congratulations and best of luck in your life's journey together!
As we begin the planning process for 2015’s brides, it’s becoming quite apparent that the “rustic-chic” trend is here to stay. However, just because it isn’t going anywhere doesn’t mean the look can’t evolve. Think “vintage vineyard” rather than “vintage farm.” Get ahead of next summer’s trend game with some of our favorite picks for the favored theme!
1. Use old wine boxes as the base for your centerpiece. In addition to being super affordable, it allows you to escape from the popular mason-jar concept.
2. We cannot wait to see our first naked cake at Tannenbaum! The natural “not-quite-even” lines give into the “rustic” theme while large bright blooms give into the “chic “theme.
3. Imagine a small collection of mismatched eclectic furniture on our spacious lawn. It allows guests a perfect place to mingle and enjoy the mountainous air both during and after cocktail hour.
4. Using farm tables allows you to keep your overall look trendy but simple.
5. Why use our regular bi-level bar when we can build you one out of two vintage wine barrels? Not to mention, it goes hand-in-hand with wine box centerpieces.
Part of what makes our venue so unique is that we allow you to bring in almost whatever you want to use for your event. This is a rule that allows for our clients to bring in their own dishware. We understand that renting china from party rental companies isn’t always the cheapest option and that sometimes the economical option consists of paper and plastic products. However, we would like to ask that our future brides take into consideration the other aspect of what makes our venue so unique. Our location in national forest territory.
When the last piece of cake has been eaten and the last dance has seen itself out, the part of the night comes where we raise the lights and help clean up. The amount of garbage that is collected at the end of the night is often quite astonishing. There’s nearly three times as many cups used as there are guests and paper napkins can be seen lying all over the deck and floors. As a company that is surrounded by environmental beauty we want to do our best to help protect it and that is something that becomes rather difficult when the amount of garbage is accumulated as such. Ice caps are melting, scientists believe we are on the verge of Earth’s sixth mass extinction, and do we evenneed to discuss “trash island”?
We do our fair share of recycling and we would like to invite our brides to help us out and do the same. The Tannenbaum will now be offering compostable dinnerware products for purchase at the facility. Running at just under $3.00 a person these products offer stylish yet environmentally-conscious plates, bowls, and cutlery at very affordable prices.
We ask that you help us in our mission to keep our facility and neighboring forest as beautiful as it is now by remembering this newly offered service. No one ever said you can’t be environmentally aware and stylish at the same time!
