Today we feature our new friends, The Photobus EP.  You know we love unique, fun, and non traditional ideas when it comes to events and when we saw The Photobus EP a couple of months ago on Instagram, we knew we had to reach out to them.

Mayra and Fernando, the owners of this fabulous vintage VW bus, purchased the old bus and fully restored it, turning it into a unique photo booth experience.  Getting to know Mayra and Fernando has been so much fun. They share our love for being different, unique and also want to bringing new ideas into your events.    We look forward to working with them on future events here at selaroM.

Maria + David’s Wedding Day

We are so lucky to get to know our brides and grooms on a more personal level.  When Maria and David reserved the ballroom for their wedding reception, we knew we would have a great connection.  Throughout the time they came to plan, we knew they were perfect for each other and we are so happy their special day was as perfect as they are together.  Maria envisioned a modern feel with her colors of pewter and plum.  Modern and eye catching centerpieces were made with white hydrangeas and silver and brown branches.  Maria added the plum satin napkins to add a pop of color to the table settings.  And that cake!  What an amazing cake from Chantilly Cakes!  A gorgeous night for a gorgeous couple.  We can’t wait to share with you the professional photos from their wedding day coming soon.UntitledxsdsIMG_7636 IMG_7630IMG_7602 IMG_7592Untitleddsd


Anabel and Francis’ Wedding Day

We had the honor and pleasure of hosting Anabel and Francis’ vintage inspired wedding reception recently.  Here are some photos we snapped while setting up for their big day.  The gorgeous color palate of blush, gold and ivory complimented the vintage details perfectly.  Congratulations Anabel and Francis!IMG_7341 IMG_7275 IMG_7277



We love themed weddings!

Tanya and Felipe celebrated their wedding reception with us while back and we are still swooning over the details of their 1920’s inspired themed wedding.  Tanya created all the floral centerpieces, and table decor and thought of every detail to make her themed wedding reception come to life.  Congratulations Tanya and Felipe!

224 Films

Today we feature the fabulously talented 224 Films, a wedding photography and videography couple.  Jackie and Mitch have photographed several of our weddings and we are smitten with their work. We are happy to share a few photos 224 Films took of a Alexandria and Marcus’ recent wedding at selaroM Events.  Enjoy!

224 Films

“We are Jackie + Mitch, your storytellers! We are high school sweethearts and feel so blessed to be able to work together every day doing something we love! We chose weddings as our specialty because we love the beauty of the day. It’s all about the emotions, smiles, laughter, the mother gazing on her beautiful daughter who grew up so fast, the groom tearing up as he sees his beautiful bride for the first time; you can see so much love that is present all around you. Being in love ourselves, we know just how to capture those special moments from both perspectives to best tell your story.”

Natalia’s Quinceanera

Beautiful floral arrangements for a beautiful Quinceanera!  We had the honor of hosting Natalia’s Quinceanera and are head over heals in love with the floral arrangements that Natalia and her mother chose designed by Cattleya Floral Designs.  With beautiful lavender satin linens and sequin overlays, uplighting and gorgeous flowers adorning the venue, we could not be more impressed with this elegant Quince.  Thank you to the Covarrubias family for the opportunity to be a part of Natalia’s special day!

Weddings, Weddings and More Weddings

This is our favorite time of year, wedding season!  We have been busy prepping, planning, and meeting with our brides.  The latest wedding was one to remember.  Lori and Aldo met with Fiori The Flower Studio to bring to life their vision of their perfect wedding decor and what a beautiful day it was. We are in love with the modern look and feel of the decor with navy blue and accents of orange here and there.  Fiori The Flower Studio shipped in the most amazing fresh orchids, unlike any we have seen before.   Here are a few photos we took while we were setting up.  Congratulations Lori and Aldo on your wedding day!

Preschool Art Fundraiser

We had such a fun filled day hosting the Peace Lutheran Preschool Art Fundraiser.  The children were so proud to see their pieces of art displayed for all the mommies and daddies to see.    The preschool children toured the art show during the day and in the evening the parents were invited to enjoy a glass of wine and a delicious dinner.  We were honored to be a part of such a beautiful event.  The most precious pieces of art are those of our children!

Super-Creative Baby Shower Ideas

Here at selaroM, we love hosting celebrations for the most meaningful times of your life. One of our favorites are baby showers. Celebrating with future moms-to-be just makes us happy! To help you take your baby shower to a whole new level of cuteness and out of the standard jungle animal theme and games, we had rounded-up  a few unique ideas that will surprise and delight your guests.
Voting Ballot

Don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl? Get guests involved in guessing baby’s gender!
All White

The days of pink and blue showers are long gone, and in their place are some beautifully clean and fresh shower themes. Mom-to-be’s bump will really pop against this all-white decor. It’s sophisticated and fun (’cause, you know, so is mom!).
Antique Bird Theme

Want to know what’s better than a stork? A beautiful bird. And that’s totally why this shower theme has taken off this year! This is ideal for the expectant mom who doesn’t want all the frills and thrills — just a bright, feel-good party.
Bumblebee Theme

Skip the traditional gender-reveal theme and try something sure to create some buzz! Incorporating a “What’ll It Bee?” theme into your shower plans is such a sweet idea. Plus, who doesn’t love the bright-yellow color scheme? Our point exactly.AB43ADFD298B4ED4A92431CF1853D302
Clock Props

When we first came across showers with a clock theme, we weren’t all that impressed. Then this photo came along and we were smitten. The antique, original touches add personality and charm, while the Tiffany-blue color scheme shines light on mom’s good taste. It’s a win-win!

Watercolor Event Inspiration

One of the latest trends in events is the watercolor-inspired affairs. From vibrant tones to soft pastel hues watercolor lends itself perfectly to special occasions decor.

Ruth and Richard’s Wedding Day

It’s been a long week and you need a little R&R to get by, so why don’t you close your eyes and travel with us to Ruth + Richard’s big day. Having one of the best backdrops for a wedding, SelaroM Events & Ballroom, the lovely couple kept their fuchsia and turquoise decor to a classic minimal with handcrafted centerpieces by the bride herself. Luckily, Wedding Xpressions Photography was in the house to capture each and every moment that we are now swooning over. Like the gorgeous fresh flower bouquet and sweetheart table flowers by Black Swan and the uber elegant cake by Chasing Butterflies — the bride had added the personalized penguin topper as a whimsical touch. Can’t wait to see the film? Go on, you’ll adore the inspiration!

Our Booth at Love Affair & Bridal Expo

We are still in full swoon over our gorgeous booth at the Love Affair & Bridal Expo held at E.P.I.C Railyard. First of all we would like to take a moment to thank all our extremely talented vendors who helped us put together this fabulous booth: Jazzie’s Crafty Creations (styling), Black Swan (florals), Honey Bee Cakes (cake) and  Sweet Treats of El Paso (desserts). Also, thank you Luis Cardenas Photography for the amazing pics.

For our set-up we were aiming for something that could fit any type of event; from baby showers and bridal showers, to quinces and weddings… even a birthday tea party would look great with this theme— and we believe we accomplish it!  Gold and blush vintage pieces were showcased across the set-up. Custom made menu cards, DIY glitter champagne bottles with tags and cookies towers as gifts on the guest tables completed the romantic vintage look. One of our favorite details is the three cake stands we used for the centerpiece on the table. Scroll down and see it all and then stop by and leave us a comment telling us which one was your favorite detail!

Pretty Ways to Incorporate Marsala, The Color of 2015 Into Your Event


The color experts at Pantone have narrowed down their top colors  for 2015 and named Marsala — a “naturally robust and earthy wine red” — the color of the year for 2015. This subdued hue is in sharp contrast to the shades selected in recent years: 2014’s radiant orchid or 2013’s emerald. It works wonderfully as a base color for your event, and it can be complimented either by warm tones, like orange, yellow, or coral, or cool tones, like blue or purple. From Quinceañeras and Bridal Showers, to Weddings and Sweet Sixteens, we would love to see more in El Paso incorporating this beautiful shade of burgundy into their events. Need some inspiration El Paso? Here, check out some gorgeous event ideas for this color.

Fabulous Ideas for a Spring Wedding

1. Ceremony Décor: A garden is a stunning choice for your ceremony — and a crystal chandelier instantly adds glamour.


2. Bridal Bouquets: Bright and light colored flowers provide a beautiful combination for a bridal bouquet.


3. Groom’s Attire: A lightweight seersucker suit, accessorized with a pastel bow tie, is a refreshing choice for spring.


4. Flower Girls: Your flower girl will look adorable in a floral wreath.


5.  Centerpieces: A rustic wood box with sprouts of wheat grass and cotton, topped with assorted flowers in an apothecary jar, is the perfect fit for a springtime event.


6. The Details: A beautiful invitation set covered in elegant blooms.


7. Wedding Cakes: One of the most beautiful parts of spring is when the cherry blossoms begin to bloom.



Real Weddings: Kim and Omar

It’s official! Thanks to Stephane Lemaire one of our favorite seasons of the year is Fall. Honoring leaves changing, crisp air and the marvelous hues that come with autumn, this is one of our favorite nuptials at SelaroM. When you have a great event planner (like Mint Weddings and Events), an awesome photographer, and the perfect venue to host your big day, the sky is the limit, especially if you’re this darling couple who took their inspiration and whipped up a marvelous-storybook wedding. Don’t believe us, look below!
