“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.”

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!

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.

Real Weddings: Kristina + Jon

There are weddings and then there are weddings that blow our minds and this hot little number courtesy of Dan Dalstra is one of those “stop you in your tracks” weddings with details that are too fab to keep to ourselves. For Kristina+ Jon, the details were created with every bit of perfection and are downright charming. Of course, the delicate palette of gold & ivory complemented SelaroM beautifully.

We are so happy to share with you a photo shoot we did with a group of our favorite vendors.

The always fabulous team at Fiori the Flower Studio brought us some deep red flowers to complement the table were our bride and groom (models provided by Bazaar Models) exchanged personalized gifts by Things Remembered.

“I love the ballroom in all it’s aspects, little is needed because the ballroom is beautiful and doesn’t need much to have a perfect event!”“The service and value are one of the best in town. Marissa is very clear and very professional, you know up front what you are paying for and what you are getting for your money….”

“The hall is beautiful and to this day I get compliments of how beautiful the venue was. Most of the people who attended had never been there and loved it. Marissa and her staff were very professional and delivered what they promised. It was easy to work out details and how flexible they were.”

“Marissa is such a professional at what she does. The day of my wedding she kindly took it upon herself of managing a few tasks. She goes beyond the extra mile. The reception area is beautiful and all my guests were in awe of how it all came together. I highly recommend SelaroM Events Ballroom. One of the best places in the El Paso area!”

“Very professional and attention to detail. It was a beautiful hall for a memorable night! Love!”

“Our wedding day was so beautiful and went off without any problem. Marissa Morales and her staff are very professional and accommodating. We were guided thru every step of the planning and are so thankful for her experience with event planning.”

“Selarom Ballroom was such a beautiful location, when my husband and I saw it we were set on where to have our reception. The day of the wedding the service was beyond expected! We were very blessed and so grateful. Marissa was so great and easy to work with and we were very proud of the big day!”

Thank you to all our wonderful clients for their reviews!

5 Reasons to Have a Buffet at Your Wedding

We can talk about wedding styles, color palettes, and décor for days (and days). But, one of the most important decisions you will make about your wedding is your menu and how your food will be served. There are quite a number of options to consider, but today we’re focusing on one: buffets. Here’s why we love them and hope you will too.
1. They’re less expensive. As a general rule, buffets are much less costly than a formal plated meal because your caterer does not need to have as many staff members on hand to serve your guests. Buffets with stations are the most common, meaning one or two servers are ready and waiting to meet the needs of each person at your reception.
2. Everyone can enjoy what he or she likes. Whether you substitute, ask for an item to not be included, or opt for a certain food on the side, it’s safe to say everyone has made changes to her meal before. Buffets allow your guests to be in control of what they eat and how much of that item they enjoy. Plus, you avoid asking guests to make their selection long before your wedding, and you’re able to skip the changes that will inevitably need to be corrected when their meal is served. No worrying to be had on your part!
3. You can still serve an innovative menu. Just because you’re having a buffet does not mean you can’t be creative with how you serve it! Think about create-your-own bars of any kind: breakfast, sliders, biscuits, tacos, raw fish, and dessert. If you’re expecting a larger guest count, opt for a few traditional selections too.
4. Assigned seats are not necessary. Buffets often encourage guests to continue to mingle while they eat (standing and talking while eating is very common!). As a result, you may be able to skip assigned seats entirely. (No worrying about making the seating chart!) However, if you imagine your guests sitting at tables, you may want to do assigned seats because the buffet provides a greater need to choose a seat with friends.
5. Buffets are faster. A formal plated dinner requires every course to be served individually. While this is definitely a luxury, it can sometimes cause other portions of your reception to feel rushed because your meal simply takes more time. Buffets, on the other hand, allow every course to be served at the same time. As a result, guests are able to eat at their own pace, mingle before you toast and cut your cake, and enjoy much more time on the dance floor.
