Debuts and Cotillions
Bianca celebrated her 18th Birthday with us on June 16, 2012 by holding her Debut in the Cerritos Ballroom. A Debut is a traditional Filipino coming-of-age celebration for young women.
As any proud father would be, Bianca's Father Jesse was involved in the entire process from the beginning to ensure that his daughter would have a wonderful Debut. You could tell just by speaking with Jesse how excited he was to be able to show all their family and friends the beautiful young woman Bianca had become.
Cue the serenading music of a live violinist. Enter the ballroom to find Bianca sitting at a two-tiered head table draped with turquoise sashes and a spotlight focused on her. Watch a preview of Bianca’s video montage, a presentation dear to Jesse’s heart. Await Bianca and her court to entertain with her cotillion dance. Marvel at the impressive homemade multi-tiered cake stand decorated with carefully placed paper mache butterflies.
As Bianca greeted each guest, her parents enjoyed watching the daughter they had raised and smiled proudly as guests commented on how beautiful Bianca had become, both inside and out.
Congratulations on your milestone Bianca! We wish you the best in all your future endeavors!

Candace and Arvin's Wedding Reception (Sneak Peak!)
Submitted by Lisa Lifton on May 16, 2012 - 12:59pm
I still remember the first day that I met Candace and Arvin! I gave them a site tour and as any Bride and Groom would be, both were excited to get married to the love of their lives but were also completely nervous with all the details that came with planning a wedding. As I told them that first day and throughout the months leading to their special day, the most important thing is that the two of them are getting married and celebrating their love for each other. All the details will fall into place and I would be there every step of the way to help in any way I could. My Director of Catering Irene and I thought it was a pleasure working with both of them as they prepared for their wedding.
The day had finally arrived on May 5, 2012 and the Cerritos Ballroom looked gorgeous! From the elegant backdrop behind their sweetheart table to the beautiful floral centerpieces in tall, elegant vases to the white chair covers with burgundy satin sashes, our signature grand ballroom was a sight to be seen! Candace looked stunning and Arvin looked handsome, both wearing white and beaming as they were ready to get the night started and begin their lives together as husband and wife!
Take a look for yourself at all the special details that Candace and Arvin put together for their celebration, down to the custom seating chart and combination table number and reception itinerary!
I also received the following thank you note from their wedding coordinator, Nicole, after the wedding:
"Lisa, I just wanted to thank you for all your help with Candace and Arvin’s wedding. Your quickness in responding to the emails and helping with any questions on the day of the wedding made things run smoothly for the couple. I look forward to working with you on future events. Thanks! Nicole, Events by NV"
