Welcome to… Martini Madness!

On August 2nd, I was invited by my dear friend Evelyn to attend Martini Madness which is hosted by Duncan Reyes, a wonderful wedding planner. Martini Madness is a social event where many of Duncan’s friends who are wedding vendors come out to meet each other. There are, of course, photographers, caterers, bloggers, florists, MC & DJ’s, bands, wedding planners, event planners, and more that come from all over the Bay Area and beyond. Martini Madness was held at Vessel in San Francisco, a very trendy and hip lounge. I had a great time meeting new people and taking a few photos at the event!

Adios M.F. Cocktail

These cupcakes were made by Jen’s Cakes in San Jose. Super cute and VERY DELICIOUS!

A yummy coffee/chocolate cupcake!

Jen’s red velvet cakes are the BEST red velvet cupcakes I had EVER tasted!!! Seriously, not too sweet, not bland, just a perfect perfection! The cream cheese frosting was a perfect balance between the moist cake. OMG, this cupcake is to die for!!!

Below is a photo of Duncan and DJ DJ Jason Mitchell. This Martini Madness was a special edition because we were also celebrating his birthday!

Jim Vetter was the official photographer for Martini Madness. He is such a nice guy!!!

Carl is a MC/DJ. A really fun guy to be around!

Here’s a photo of my friend Evelyn and her son, Manuel.

Duncan had a surprise for his birthday…. Marilyn! She was quite entertaining! 🙂

Dave was the official videographer for Martini Madness. It was really cool watching him film the event.

It was a great night of mingling and meeting new people. Thank you Duncan for hosting this awesome event and I hope to return to many more! Happy birthday, Duncan!!!

Also, thank you to Evelyn for introducing me to Duncan and Martini Madness! 🙂

    Very nice. Like how you managed to light everything but still keep some of the orange light!

      Lighting was incredibly challenging here. It was super dark but shooting with a large aperture really helped.

    Cool shots Jas! It’s good that you’re doing this kind of networking. Relationships with other vendors will help you out a lot in the wedding biz =)
