Turn, Turn, Turn!
Sheila Weiner, president of The Event Group, shares a favorite project, inspiring us with ambitious, beautiful planning. “A quick turn of a room is something planners do frequently, but the transition never ceases to be anything short of spectacular! We had the pleasure of transforming the New Hazlett Theater from a raw theater into a very warm and intimate ceremony space and then, during cocktails, turning it one more time into a regal, wintery atmosphere fit for a party. The amazing floral centerpiece by Allison McGeary Florist was a focal point in both settings. For the ceremony, it was positioned low and joined by a canopy of twinkle lights. For the reception, it was raised higher over the dance floor, as not to hide the cake that appeared on the second-level scaffolding, individual chandeliers were lowered over the dinner tables, and the twinkle lights were exchanged for snowflake gobos that lit the brick walls.”
