09_050713 Everywhere you turn lately, someone is talking about the highly acclaimed and long awaited blockbuster hit, The Great Gatsby. From the fashion to the history to the drama, everyone has gone gaga for Gatsby! In support of this highly anticipated summer movie, we did what we do best, threw a party for it of course!


Thankfully Zapwater client and friend, Sacha Krasney, Founder of Be U Weddings and Be U Brides is a huge fan of the novel. Her passion matched with our creativity were the perfect storm to throw “Gatsby Gorgeous” an exclusive pre-party and screening event held right here at Zapwater.

The office was transformed into a 1920’s style speakeasy and guests arrived dressed to the nines creating an ambiance that was un-mistakenly “Gatsby.” Soiree Events converted our “living room” space into a lace and pearl lounge for guests to enjoy. Pure Kitchen Catering served guests with light bites and a “prohibition cocktail” while Goose Island Catering set up their prohibition style set up in our conference room serving small bites expertly paired with Goose Island beer offerings. Cage & Aquarium provided a themed photo booth complete with 20’s style props and Fig Media ensured the party stayed energized with jazz and 20’s style favorites while live models showcased gorgeous vintage gowns from Mignonette Bridal. Each guest left with a gift bag full of Gatsby swag and other treats.

The party was one that won’t be soon forgotten as guests and vendors alike were able to live in the time if only for a few hours and experience an event unlike any other
