SF Bay Area NACE Gala 2013

The San Francisco Bay Area National Association for Catering & Events held it’s annual Gala at the Recency Center in early November! SnapFiesta was invited to capture the nights festivities in our signature photobooth and it was a blast! Aptly named “A World of Wonder”, the gala was nothing short of what was expected.

The event was also a fundraiser! With a silent auction and a designers’ tablescape competition, the gala raised money for the Bay Area NACE chapter as well as New Door Ventures, a local non-profit that helps at-risk youth prepare for the future. There were also awards and a cash raffle available to guests!

Rockwall Winery, Wine Wonderland! 12.7.13

Who doesn’t love wine, food, and good company? We’re definitely not ones to pass something like that up! Needless to say, we jumped at the opportunity to celebrate the holiday season with the Rock Wall Wine Company and hundreds of their friends!

This year’s Wine Wonderland Open House featured six new release wines as well as 65 other wines to for guests to sample. And who doesn’t like great food to go with great wine? Guests were treated to foods from local restaurants such as Jackson Blake BBQ, Nombe, Scolari’s Good Eats, Lungomare, Bombzie’s BBQ, and Asena.  You can’t have delicious food without dessert, either, and this event did not fail! Vendors like Nothing Bundt Cakes, Kind Bars, Cookiebar, and others, provided guests with the perfect end to their meals. And it doesn’t stop there! In addition to a SnapFiesta photobooth, guests could get henna tattoos by Yogi’s Henna, and were entertained throughout the night with live music by Kenya Baker!

Reason to Party!

We can never say enough how honored we feel when we do events for a good cause. The Reason to Party and Dot429 Winter Gala was certainly for a wonderful cause!

In addition to cocktails and live music, as well as a SnapFiesta photobooth! A silent auction was held, too, and prizes included tickets to Carmen Marco Valvo’s fashion show in New York this February, a two night stay at a hotel, a 24×24 painting by local artist Casey O’Connell, and others!

It’s so much fun to be a part of these events!

Not For Sale Gala

We really do love being a part of events that give to the greater good.  And being able to attend and photograph the Not For Sale Gala in October was just incredible. The annual gala was held at City View at Metreon in San Francisco and consisted of a fun filled night full of food, cocktails, live performances, and of course, SnapFiesta!

Not For Sale is a non-profit organization that combats modern day slavery and human trafficking. With the help of special guest speakers and performers, Nikki Reed, Paul McDonald, Dave Batstone, and Kru Nam, the gala raised enough money to support more than 1,000 survivors of human trafficking in the year 2014.
