A Dreamy December Wedding by the Sea

February 6, 2023 3:48 pm

Imagine getting married in the middle of December, outdoors, by the ocean. Here in California, it’s totally doable given our mild winters. Arielle and Josh took great advantage of our spring-like winter season, and had a beautiful ceremony right in front of the sea at Terranea. We provided a dreamy, romantic look to go along with their magical day. For the ceremony, we provided aisle pieces and in a mix of light pink, blush,and ivory flowers. Terranea’s ceremony pergola was covered in more flowers, plus pops of phalaenopsis orchids for additional movement and texture. Inside the ballroom, the stage featured a stunning backdrop of more florals, as well as lots more along the edge of the stage for an eye-popping... Read More


Spring in September at the Beverly Hilton

January 31, 2023 4:27 pm

For this gorgeous wedding at the Beverly Hilton, we provided a springlike vibe in the middle of autumn. Of course, September in Los Angeles is mild, even hot, some days – so our beautiful florals still had the backdrop of sunshine and clear skies. The focal point for Sara and Kouroush’s celebration was the ceremony chuppah, decorated with tons of greenery and blush, pink, and ivory roses and flowers. Autumn flowers tend to be in rich, deep colors, like red and orange; keeping the color scheme in lighter tones kept the design springy and fresh. We created texture with greenery but didn’t let the greens run too wild, for a classic, not rustic, look. The reception carried over the same... Read More


Rich Red Wedding at Gulls Way in Malibu

January 9, 2023 12:57 pm

Gulls Way is a spacious estate right on the Pacific Ocean in Malibu, California. Kelly and Dylan wanted to brig some drama to their beachside wedding by utilizing deep, bold red for their reception, and we were happy to oblige. We created red rose centerpieces that worked beautifully against white linens and black chairs. A gazebo structure formed a rigging point for twinkle lights that sparkled all night. The daytime ceremony called for a lighter, fresher look. Our lush arch of roses and greenery provided a pretty yet substantial backdrop to the couple’s vows. We added more florals at the base of the arch for a grounded feel, and created a matching arrangement in a classic urn for the escort... Read More


Black, White, and Rustic at Saddlerock Ranch

January 3, 2023 1:25 pm

Unlikely combinations of colors and textures are what we LIVE for here at Butterfly! When Shirin and Arsalan wanted to bring in black to a rustic theme at their Saddlerock Ranch wedding, we were 100% in. We made the black element work by keeping the rest of the color palette simple: White with greenery. Greenery bought in the rustic texture, and white gave the black a clean-cut, pristine counterpoint. We wound ruscus and white flowers around black arches on their ceremony aisle, and kept the greenery at a minimum for their all-white centerpieces in the reception. This monochromatic approach at the reception let the rustic wood of their tables really shine. The black napkins and chairs at the reception tables... Read More


A Romantic Hideaway at Hotel Bel-Air

December 29, 2022 1:39 pm

The Hotel Bel-Air is a legendary A-lister hideaway tucked into the hills of Los Angeles. Lauren and Blake wanted their guests to feel like they were in a lush and beautiful retreat. Their wedding took place at the hotel’s iconic outdoor locations – the lake, inhabited by graceful swans, and a lawn nestled among the hotel, where we hung swathes of greenery and flowers along a wood arbor. Along with twinkle lights that echoed a starry night, the feel was truly that of a magical getaway. The ceremony arch featured lots of greenery and pops of white flowers. In the reception space, we hung tons of ruscus greenery on the trellis over the head table and designed pink and white... Read More


Taking the Church Outside at Saddlerock Ranch

December 20, 2022 1:18 pm

During the COVID lockdown, many churches were closed for health and safety reasons. Priscilla and Will wanted to bring the church outside for their wedding – and we were thrilled to help set the scene! The couple rented church pews for ceremony seating (courtesy of Found Rentals) and we created a beautiful backdrop consisting of wood pieces echoing the stained glass windows of a traditional church. Tons of greenery and white flowers accented the arches. We also added an arch at the end of the aisle featuring actual doors – just like the entrance of a church. The reception space was a beautiful tent with swagging and more greenery. A black and white scheme reflected in chameleon chairs, linens, and... Read More


Light and Airy Wedding by Mission Bay

December 13, 2022 10:47 am

MIssion Bay is a waterway in San Diego, a picturesque area perfect for weddings. Michelle and JR’s wedding ceremony was not only by this beautiful bay, thanks to the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa And Marina – but their reception took place near another body of water: the pool area of a gorgeous private home! We complimented their venues with reflective clear features – like crystals hanging down an acrylic chuppah. We also wove in tons of white to create this light and airy wedding design. The ceremony featured the stunning chuppah, accented with not only lots of clear crystals, but a rich adornment of orchids along the top. Clear chiavari chairs perfectly complemented the acrylic chuppah. The reception featured... Read More


Cool and Crisp Black and White Wedding at Four Seasons Los Angeles

December 8, 2022 10:00 am

There is no more modern a look than a crisp black and white wedding. Dale and Nick wanted this palette at their wedding, allowing us to play with different materials and shapes to bring lots of visual interest to their design. At the ceremony space, we attached sprays of white roses to white metal stands, giving a dimensional look to the end-of-aisle decor. The chuppah echoed this black and white wedding look, too, with more open-air stands with clusters of flowers throughout. Another standout? The gorgeous seating chart in black with white script, and surrounded by more gorgeous clusters of white flowers and tons of candles. In the ballroom, black draping played off of a glossy white dance floor, and... Read More

Calamigos Ranch offers a whimsical, pastoral venue for weddings. Jessika and Adrian married among the dreamy trees and hanging lights in the Pavilion ceremony space; then, guests partied among nearby carnival rides and under Calamigos’ elegant tent. Our round ceremony structure, decorated with white roses, served as a dramatic backdrop for the couple. The natural mix of white flowers and greenery continued through the cocktail hour and reception space. We dressed the fireplace mantel with lots of gorgeous flowers, and moved the ceremony backdrop to the reception space to add visual impact to the sweetheart table. See below for photos by Brett Hickman Photo of this naturally pretty wedding. Floral Design: Butterfly Floral and Event Design Planning: Symphony Weddings & Events... Read More

November 23, 2022 9:31 am

The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic is an annual event in Los Angeles featuring a real live polo match set against a breezy, elegant backdrop of cabanas, tents, and lounge areas. Of course, the famous Veuve Clicquot Champagnes were flowing, for a perfect, sparkling day for all. We collaborated with the brand to accent the event with clever displays, like the sprays of roses and flowers designed to look as if overflowing from a bottle of rose Champagne, or the massive cluster of live orange roses above a painting of an urn. These playful images wowed attendees and truly brought the spirit of Veuve Clicquot to life for this jaw-droppingly gorgeous event. We created several more unique elements to show off... Read More
