It was January, a bit cold and snowy but that did not stop 100 of the birthday boys best friends to fly in from all over the world to celebrate his 40th. Uncommon Events was lucky enough to be the creator and manager of this incredible 2 day weekend in NYC. The big surprise was at Mandarin Oriental Hotel on Columbus Circle followed by an after party at the Hudson hotel til 2am. Saturday luncheon at the oh-so private club downstairs at the Sherry Netherland. Saturday evening was held on the rooftop at Gramercy Park hotel. All venues were amazingly transformed by our décor department. It was spectacular!
Uncommon Events travels anywhere to create perfect events. Our most recent foray out of the Northeast region was to Sedona Arizona. Enchantment resort, what a beautiful place. Especially in the fall months. Uncommon Events managed a 4 day weekend of events for a private celebration. Working with the Enchantment resort staff lead by Molly Anderson, the Director of Catering, we pulled out all the stops for every event on and off property. Events were held at Seven Canyons Golf Club, Los Lagos Ranch and the Enchantment property. We teamed up with Events by Showstoppers to assist with all the floral décor. They did an amazing job and could handle any last minute change or detail. The chocolate walkway of crushed cocoa hulls gave the guests a yummy scent upon arrival. The Navajo Rose Petal Rug created for the Saturday evening bash was just stunning. The Indian feather chandeliers were a favorite for the Saturday evening cocktail tent. There were jeep tours, balloon rides, campfire dinners, lunching by the lagoon, quite a busy weekend. Being from the East Coast, we were thrilled to embrace a completely different style of food, décor and accents.

Uncommon Events has had the pleasure of planning 3 very different weddings at Woolverton Inn in Stockton New Jersey. Our first was published nationally. Woolverton is a beautiful spot for a wedding of 130 guests or less. Fall, Spring or summer, just stunning.
Uncommon Events created an incredible three day wedding weekend for an international group of guests. The invitations for each of the 5 events were hand made by Arak Kanofsky Studios and were each pieces of artwork. Each party had its own décor style and flair. Thursday evening welcome, Friday bridal luncheon, Rehearsal dinner, tented reception with after party. The reception tent was stunning, a multi level sub floor leading to the magically lit dance area left the guests amazed. Enjoy the images of this spectacular international wedding…
