Center of Attention Inc., a full service special event production company based in Burbank, California, recently planned the nuptial renewal of Snoop Dogg to his wife Shante, which aired nationally on the E! television network. As featured in the final episode of Snoop Dogg’s Fatherhood show, the rapper’s assistant found Center of Attention after making dozens of phone calls to planners, hoping to find a coordinator who could plan the ceremony in just two days. Huge relief came when they did find the perfect coordinator, who had previously planned the renewal of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne.

With two days notice, C of A's coordinators pulled it together in splendid style. They shipped orchids overnight from Thailand to create a wall of flowers suspended from the tent. Behind the ceremony, they decorated a fountain dripping with strings of flowers and floated the candles on palm leaves, while decking the ceremony with silk black chairs featuring Swarovski Crystal pendants. Upon special request, their baker even served a Blue Velvet Cake.

One final note: here is an excerpt from a blog testimonial about Center of Attention that we found at jonathinks.blogspot.com:

I love attending weddings ... Can't help but be mesmerized by the wonderful details such as the bridal gown, the flowers, the cake, the entourage, the walk and of course, the kiss. But before all these would happen, it's a great task putting up all these together. I have recently glanced upon Snoop Dogg's Wedding Renewal and it's really wonderful. The venue is literally in the middle of nowhere land near an alpaca ranch but Center of Attention made an amazing job of turning it into their dream wedding. These people are capable of creating a destination wedding from just about anywhere a client can dream of. Center of Attention also headed the planning of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne's Wedding Renewal at the Beverly Hills Hotel which aired on MTV on New Year's Eve 2004... a spectacular event coz it was also Sharon's 50th Birthday Party ... they built a shopping mall from scratch with sponsors recreating their storefronts and handing out their gifts. Saks Fifth Avenue handed out watches, Godiva handed out 1 pound boxes of Chocolate Truffles and Maxfield (Ozzy's favorite store) designed shirts with crucifix with the word peace in French. No wonder they won their highest industry award, the Gala from "Special Events Magazine" because of what they did in that three in one party. If there's any idea you have in mind for your next event, Center of Attention can make it a reality for you, exactly how you want it to be.
