The Wasilla Chamber of Commerce Winter Fundraiser was a great success because of our ongoing partnership with Kathy, owner of Social Ice. The products provided were of superior quality and craftsmanship. Our event was breathtakingly decorated and support before, during and after the event by the Social Ice staff. Our needs were exceeded as well as our “wow” factor bar has now been raised due to Kathy and all that she and her company bring to the table. 

Kathy and Social Ice are there when you need them. Their professional team spirit topped with the knowledge of what it takes to be a success is par for the course with Kathy and her staff. The Alaska weather, and lack of goods sometimes do not cooperate when you need it most, however Social Ice is always able to step up no matter what is in their way.

The Wasilla Chamber of Commerce would highly recommend this company to everyone who is looking for product or services Social Ice is offering.
Thank you Kathy and Staff, our Winter Masquerade Fundraiser was a sensational event thanks to your participation.

I have known Kathy for several years as we have worked many weddings and functions together. 

As a professional photographer I work with many of the local vendors that help put together weddings, parties, and other special events.  knew Kathy was good and reliable, but I did not know just how talented and hard working she was. In mid-November my boyfriend finally proposed. He basically asked me if I wanted to get married this year or next and what type of wedding did I want. He gave me a budget and then left on a trip.

Well, since I have been photographing weddings for 25 years, I thought I knew all about places, themes, and special effects. I have always dreamed of a “western style” wedding that takes place in a barn. I tried to think like a bride not a photographer so I called my friends that were also in the wedding planning business.

I called Kathy and said, “He finally asked me…” I need something that looks like a barn with a western motif that can be ready in six weeks all for about $10.00. We chatted about ideas and then she went to work. The next day (and for many days to come) Kathy would call me and tell me what she had found on the Internet.

Her creative juices were really flowing as she came up with all kinds of ideas that would fit my dream and still be on my limited budget.
My future husband jokingly said that he did not want a boutonniere but wanted a boot-n-ere.

Sure enough Kathy found the perfect pin of a cowboy boot that along with a couple of flowers would satisfy that request.
We found an empty warehouse that only needed the semi-trailers, motorhome, and heavy equipment moved out and some magic to make it look like a western setting. Kathy ordered favors that had a western theme, started making table decorations, and began creating an ice sculpture all while doing her other normal activities.

With the help of Kathy’s creative ideas, project management skills, dedicated time to the project I ended up with the most unique and beautiful wedding that I
had ever attended….and I was the star! I will forever be grateful and would be glad to give her the highest recommendation. Her down to earth personality, dedication, creativity and hard work make her a one of a kind vendor. I am also glad to be able to call her my friend.

We had Social Ice create us a double heart ice luge for our wedding reception. It was great – couldn’t keep the guests away from it. 

I definitely recommend it!

Our Middle School had an 8th grade promotion dance and Kathy offered to help with the decorations. 

She did a wonderful job and transformed part of our school into a Narnia Winter Scene/Medieval Castle Courtyard. She had some ice fountains and multiple ice snowflakes that were added to natural and manmade decor to recreate a storybook scenery. It was amazing!

The students felt really special and the staff was thoroughly impressed!

The creations from Social Ice are amazing.
Kathy does such a great job researching unique ways to display ice at an event.
The time she takes in creating each centerpiece always amazes me.
This past year we have used their new full decor services.
My clients have been awed by the room transformations.
We are excited to be going into 2009 with several projects on the books with her!

Kathy created the most beautiful ice sculptures for our 5th Annual Anchorage Wedding Fair. The pictures of just some of her creations she had sent prior to our event were pretty but when they arrived the day of, I was absolutely amazed! The bridal parties were guided into the banquet hall with multiple and exquisite creations from ice water fountains to floral vases. Our stage decor featured ice angels and pink swans to match the colors of the Anchorage Wedding Fair. Everyone raved about Social Ice and Kathy’s creations. I would not only recommend her for your wedding but for any special occasion. Thanks Kathy and I look forward to working with you  next year!

Kathy,
I wanted to let you know that the Swan Ice Sculptures you made for my daughter’s wedding were a huge success. The color was perfect and they lasted all day. 

We used them for the ceremony as well as the reception.The guests were so impressed that they took several photo’s of them which I will e-mail to you to use on your web-site. Also thank you for the flowers that you added to the centerpiece it was a very nice touch.
