We can’t thank you enough Marianne!  We love the images and our partnership with you!

A bit about our sponsor:

Marianne Lozano is a favorite in the Los Angeles wedding scene!  Whether shooting for publication or a wedding, she brings her unparalleled sense of style and fresh perspective to every shoot. With her great attention to detail, she approaches weddings as a unique experience to create incomparable images; one of the many reasons she has become popular among event and floral designers, as well as wedding planners. Her work has been published in the pages and covers of many prominent wedding magazines.

Marianne’s style can be described as fun, fresh and elegant, with an editorial flair. Couples are attracted to her exuberant personality and high standards in all aspects of her work. Whether working in the Los Angeles area or traveling around the world, Marianne always captures the heart and soul of each couple and the day in a way few can match. Spontaneous. Detailed. Soulful.

Pitch Perfect Sound, the ongoing comment at the Red Party regarding No Static’s contribution.   Is that the band or the DJ?  another comment we heard several times.  We can’t thank Dave enough for lending his talented team and amazing gear to our open house.  We work with the No Static team on a lot of events….usually the ones where sound really matters and there is no room for error.  Dave and Gene are seasoned pro’s when installing a flawless sound package at an event and provide permanent installations at clubs and restaurants nationally.  Along with the images of the party and Gene spinning in the DJ booth, we grabbed a few picture of events we worked on together this year including Cedar Sinai’s Pink  Party and LAPD’s True Blue Gala.

Unlike any other vodka on the market, Tallarico offers a new and distinct flavor profile. Made in America from the perfect blend of common rye and white winter wheat, Tallarico evaporates on the palette, with no astringent after taste.The unique nose and great mouth feel makes for a perfect sipping vodka, but also blends well with any mixer. Owned and operated by Giancarlo Tallarico, a Los Angeles native whose quest for the most exceptional and complex martini prompted him to start his own spirits company. Sold in only the finest restaurants and stores, the seductive packaging and distinct grain recipe attract a sophisticated palette. Tallarico Vodka has been awarded the Triple Gold from MicroLiquor for package, taste and value as well as a Publisher’s Pick in The Tasting Panel Magazine.
