Ocean Way Platinum Party

Hello WCW readers! Amy here to tell you about a great event we did in August. I was delighted to have old friends at EMI CMG and sixstepsrecords call and ask us to put together an event at legendary Ocean Way Studios in Nashville to celebrate not one, but three milestones for their artist Chris Tomlin: Platinum certification for Arriving, Gold certification for See The Morning, and the debut of his next record, Hello Love (9/2/08).

Because the event would take place during the workday, we wanted to keep it light and casual, while still providing a cool environment. We decided on a sushi menu, with everything butlered and passed to keep the crowd on its feet. A special treat was the dessert sushi: completely made of fruits, chocolate, and other sweets, but they appear deceptively identical to the sushi we know and love!

We here at WCW are ALL about the details, and that's where we chose to inject some unique personality! Inspired by our sushi menu, we chose to top the tables with mini Asain gardens and Bonsai trees and used fragrant citris bamboo tealights to make Studio A just a little more Zen. Guests also sipped White Raspberry Tea and munched on Wasabi snack mix out of "L O V E" dishes that matched the album cover art exactly!

Last was a special performance from Chris and the presentation of plaques. We were honored to be part of such a monumental occasion and give our congratulations to Chris Tomlin and team for their many, many sucesses! And thanks to Ruben J Photography for all the great shots!

Me and long time friends Louie and Shelley Giglio (
