Dos De Mayo Celebration at the SLO Brew Lofts

San Luis Obispo

By The Wedding Standard / Content Curator / Ali Heston

San Luis Obispo's newest urban lodging SLO Brew Lofts are located in the heart of Downtown San Luis Obispo neighboring with local bars and restaurants. The five lofts located above the SLO Brew restaurant and bar make for the perfect place to host a bridal party or family for the weekend if your wedding is happening at one of the San Luis Obispo's lovely wedding venues. A stay here is sure to exceed your expectations and offer you a unique wedding weekend experience. 

Word on the street is that Dos De Mayo is the new Cinco De Mayo! This spin off the Mexican holiday brought San Luis Obispo's favorite wedding artists together for a night of fun and friendship. Amber from Karson Butler Events designed the space themed for her favorite holiday with Found Vintage Rentals and Noonan Wine Country Floral Designs. Torres Catering served up some tasty tacos with sweet treats by Paper Cake Events, and of course SLO Brews and margaritas. As with all other Wedding Standard events, the party focused on highlighting the creative abilities of the wedding vendors of the community and allowed for the artists to connect on a more personal level.

Amber Karson, from Karson Butler Events, completely transformed the urban feel of the SLO Brew Lofts with her colorful, festive, and Mexican-inspired design. Amber never fails to create a one of a kind feel to her design that always leaves guests in awe. 

This private patio, only accesible to guests of the lofts, offers views of the nearby creek and the San Luis Obispo Mission. Party-goers enjoyed the warm spring night and watched the sun set over San Luis Obispo on the rooftop deck while enjoying fresh drinks, ceviche, and plates full of chips and guacamole. 

"We used the Otome patterns on the Macaroons and the classic Cinco de Mayo colors to tie everything together." 

-Casey, Paper Cake Events 

Wedding artists used festive props to take photos in The Spark Booth with their collegues and friends! The photos were printed in seconds and made for a fun party favor. Thank you Mason and Megan for bringing along this awesome addition to the event! 

Photographer, filmmaker, and founder of The Wedding Standard, Cameron Ingalls, developed a one-word theme for the Dos De Mayo celebration: Recreate. While speaking, Cameron encouraged fellow wedding artists to schedule down time. 

"Taking time away from what you love and do helps you to remember you aren't just what you do. You find yourself and your reason for working so hard in the enjoyment of life's little things.It will help you come back stronger, more inspired and refreshed. The work you'll do will be exponentially more effective and your family will appreciate it too!"

-Cameron Ingalls

It is events such as this one that continue to raise the standard of excellence of the wedding industry on the Central Coast. Huge thanks to Chromatic Collective's incredible photos!
