I recently came across this awesome event planner/designer named Preston Bailey. Not much to say about him but that he makes spectacular looking events. Here are a few photos I found that are my favorites of his events. Also make sure to check out his website.
It is also amazing to see what the before and afters were. Shockingly, a good amount of these awesome events were in the "shabbiest" of places - on a roof, in a barn, in a basketball stadium - not nearly what they end up looking like.
