A Taste of France in Reno – Date Night in Paris with Zilla Events
Nicole and Jenica from Zilla Events were so awesome to ask me to photograph their “Date Night in Paris” at their Arlington Tower office in Reno on April 16th. Zilla Events is a wedding planning company here in Reno that caters to the busy DIY bride – I’m sure there are those of you out there that would LOVE to hand-make every item for your wedding and take care of everything yourself (because you’re totally capable and love doing that stuff), but you just know it’s too time consuming to handle alone.
I was gearing up for an evening of French wine tasting when I heard that Krumblz Deli & Bakery was catering the event – and I knew there was going to be some amazing food photography in my future. And the food was absolutely delicious. I really loved the vanilla cupcakes and the cream pastry puff things with caramelized onions. I’m sure that has a better name than that!
I was really excited to see all the fun that Zilla had planned for the evening – first, wine tasting, then photobooth fun with French props, then wedding themed Pictionary (boys vs girls – and boy, are guys clueless when it comes to wedding stuff!) And finally, the ladies dressed up their guys in toilet paper and paper plates. Oh, and ribbon. I got to help choose the couple with the best dress, and I have to say – I have pretty good taste in TP ensembles.
Thank you again, Nicole & Jenica, for a lovely evening and a taste of Paris in Reno. Nicole, you really know your wine!! I loved the explanations of each wine that you gave to all the guests. It was very educational and the wine was very tasty. I think I even grew an immediate appreciation for wine 🙂
