Lovebirds looking to tie the knot can now experience the pompous features of celebrity Hollywood weddings at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City. 

The 7,000 square feet of event space will now include wedding add-ons. Options include exiting in a horse-drawn carriage (inspired by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle), a burger bar with the couple's initials toasted into the bun (Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook), and a massive flower wall that will prove to be the “most Instagrammable” backdrop (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West). 

“Anyone who knows Studio City knows that it's 'Old Hollywood,' and actors such as John Wayne or Bette Davis would come to the Sportsmen's Lodge after filming their movies to grab a drink or to lounge by the historic Olympic-sized swimming pool," says Zee Bell Drury, director of catering, events and group sales at Sportsmen's Lodge. “It’s natural to take Old Hollywood or celebrity inspired wedding amenities and roll out lavish options that a couple can experience.” 

The addition is just one of many trends that Bell has pursued. Other Sportsmen’s Lodge wedding amenities include cotton candy bouquets and cereal or English biscuit stations.  

“I’ve noticed trends in terms of creative dessert stations in place of traditional cakes or in addition to a cake,” says Drury. “I think you can take any trend and make it into a station or a bar because people like to have fun with their food.” 

The amenities menu comes to a venue already filled with dignified wedding grandeur with a fireplace, outdoor tents with lighting and rustic surroundings.  

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.   

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
