Classic Neutral Wedding at the Beverly Hilton

May 18, 2019 12:24 am

If there’s anything designers love, it’s variety. Every client has a different idea about wedding design; they all have unique tastes and inspiration. In the case of this gorgeous wedding at the Beverly Hilton, the couple were all about neutrals. Soothing, soft tones used in a monochromatic style are pleasing to the eye and always classic and elegant. You can’t go wrong with a neutral wedding! We utilized flowers of the softest pale pink, intermixed with white florals, such as sprays of phalaenopsis orchids. Delicate greens, including pale green amaranthus in the reception centerpieces, subtly accented the florals. Hints of gold, in the vases, completed the picture. The Hilton’s beige ballroom lent the perfect neutral backdrop, beautifully setting off the... Read More


Real Wedding: Luxury and Orchids in Ojai

May 11, 2019 12:37 am

This wedding in Ojai took advantage of the Ojai Valley Inn’s beautiful landscape for a rustic, yet elegant wedding ceremony. Inside the ballroom, it was orchids everywhere – for a crisp, white contrast to the woodsy and organic ceremony. Combining wood textures with pretty florals created an overall look that is both warm and elegant. Take in all the beauty below in photos by Shumanev Production. The tall, strong trees allowed us to hang delicate votives; the aisle was accented with clusters of geometric votive holders, ferns, flowers, and pillar candles. Chiffon runners set a perfect table, with votives, green taper candles, roses, hydrangea, and greenery also running down the center.

Real Wedding: Tented Elegance at Hummingbird Nest Wedding

May 4, 2019 2:13 am

It takes so many details to design a stunning, one-of-a-kind wedding. For this luxurious Hummingbird Nest Ranch wedding at their Villa location, every aspect of the decor had to contribute to a rich, vibrant palette, from the deep red roses all around the portico at the ceremony to the swags of purple along the tent. In the ceremony area, we surrounded the existing portico with lush greenery and roses, with an aisle border to match. For the reception tables, we designed collections of compotes filled with red roses, and tapered red candles, and mercury votives. Purple napkins, gold rimmed chargers, and dove gray linens completed the look. And of course, we filled the beautiful fountain in front of the Villa... Read More


Lavish Romance at the Millennium Biltmore

April 25, 2019 3:06 am

Roses and romance are one and the same when it comes to the symbolism of love, and this wedding was no exception. We created lush textures with ivory, pink, and mauve roses for the wedding ceremony, with a grand chuppah and matching floral arch. In the reception, we continued the look, adding a sense of lightness provided by sprays of orchids in the tabletop centerpieces. The stunning backdrop of the historic Millennium Biltmore Hotel – as you can see by now, a favorite of ours – heightened the overall affect. See photos below by Jessica Claire, and special shout-out to Maryam Forutan from Delicate Details for running a smooth and successful wedding! Delicate roses hang down along the back of...

Real Wedding: Eye-popping Design at the Montage Laguna Beach

sAs wedding design becomes more and more ambitious, we find ourselves playing with the possibilities when it comes to ceiling installations. For many years, the most extravagant aspect of ballroom ceilings were light fixtures, such as chandeliers; but with careful rigging and great collaborators, we can bring drama and style to overhead installations. For this romantic wedding at the Montage Laguna Beach, we designed overflowing waves of white florals and greenery, along with crystal fixtures. We worked with great vendors, including the amazing team at Amber Event Production,to create the overall look. Photos below are by the always-brilliant Jessica Claire.

The ornate ceilings, draped balconies, and Deco details are one of a kind, providing endless wedding inspiration for floral design.

Real Wedding: Seaside Celebration at Pelican Hill

March 26, 2019 2:36 pm

The Resort at Pelican Hill caused a sensation when it opened in 2008. Situated along the Pacific Ocean, the luxurious resort features luxurious architecture, ocean views, and a beautiful space, the Event Lawn Rotunda, that frequently serves as an unforgettable setting for weddings. This celebration, photographed by Katie Beverley, was one of our favorites at the Resort. Four grand floral pillars topped with orbs of roses framed the ceremony area. A white carpet aisle was lined with our floral aisle borders of pink, burgundy, and white flowers. For the reception, elegant candelabras and floral arrangements lined the long tables. We brought a jolt of color without marring the soft neutrals of the ivory and pink palette, by using maroon-lined calla... Read More


Bold, Beautiful Engagement Party

When two people promise to wed, it’s a cause for celebration! This engagement party, at Calamigos Ranch, combined classic decor with clever personalization. Our favorite touch was the bright pink neon sign with the couples’ hash tag. The color palette featured light pink, white, and cool lime green, creating a springlike feel. Our green taper candles in hurricanes and gleaming silver lanterns alternated with flowers on long tables, as well as dramatic long ‘bridge’ floral pieces, adorned with gleaming, fairly-lit bulbs. Check out the modern donut wall in the background! Always a guest favorite, we topped the wall with greenery for a decorative accent. A lush piece of amaranthus, roses, and textural greens highlight the oh-so-clever neon sign. VENDORS: Floral... Read More
