A Beautiful Blend of Colors and Textures at Saddlerock Ranch

August 9, 2022 8:41 am

When you think of florals, you often think of beautiful flowers arranged in a clear vase. But in the floral and event design world, there are tons of different kinds of containers for arrangements, not just clear glass. Chelsea and Hank wanted to play with a variety of materials for their event design – they wanted pottery, metal vases, and even standalone wood pieces for their decor. We worked with terra cotta and cement pots and urns, as well as a variety of other containers, for this sophisticated wedding at Saddlerock Ranch. For our color theme, we used lots of greenery and green flowers (like hydrangeas) accented with pink from pampas grass, astilbe, and proteas. Collections of small and large... Read More


A Simply Perfect Color Palette at Bel Air Bay Club

August 4, 2022 11:50 am

When you have a stunning backdrop for your ceremony like the ocean view at Bel Air Bay Club, it’s all about highlighting the surroundings, not distracting from them. Danielle and Casey wanted a crisp, lush blend of white flowers and lots of greenery, a simple palette that let the ceremony space truly shine. We created a full, textural chuppah with lots of white roses and greenery – including ruscus and lemon leaf – atop a modern white stage. At cocktail hour, our photobooth backdrop and fountain featured more classic white roses and greenery for a consistent palette. In the ballroom, we added lovely light blush pink florals for more color and dimension to the overall look. This was the perfect... Read More


Soft Pinks and Glam Gold at Thunderbird Country Club

July 28, 2022 11:12 am

The combination of gold and pink offers a mix of luxe and lush, both a soft touch and a distinct shot of glamour. Jamie and Ben wanted a perfect mix of blush and gold for their wedding at the Thunderbird Country Club. We also mixed in white and ivory to blend it all together into one gorgeous wedding. The ceremony arch and pedestals were in clear acrylic to add a modern flair to the overall design. Gold chiavari chairs perfectly complimented the florals, which included sprays of greenery painted gold. Clusters of pink roses and hydrangeas also accented with gold lined the aisle. For the reception, we crowned the seating chart with a living piece of art – a sculptural... Read More


Modern Luxury at Stone Mountain

July 19, 2022 12:54 pm

Los Angeles is known for its unique wedding venues, and Stone Mountain provides yet another one-of-a-kind space to celebrate. Tucked in the mountains near Malibu, this intimate space offers stunning views and a beautiful round stone helipad. Stone Mountain is perfect for smaller events, and often requires a ‘flip’ of the space from ceremony to reception, but Anna and Alexander wanted to have separate ceremony and reception spaces, so they covered the pool on property. We created a grand pink and ivory ceremony arch against crisp white drapery for a high-impact look with modern touches. The reception space took place on the round stone helipad, with sail-like drapery providing shade for guests. Tall centerpieces matching the ceremony florals carried through... Read More


Dreamy Touches at Hummingbird Nest Ranch

July 12, 2022 8:35 am

Yael and Coby’s Hummingbird Nest Ranch wedding took full advantage of the outdoor setting. A clear tent allowed guests to still see the starry sky at night, and the ceremony backdrop was a stunning view of the mountains. Wildflower aisle pieces and dreamy, airy white flowers and branches on the chuppah added to the classic but outdoorsy feel. We accented the white florals with blush candle sticks along the dining tables, which vibed perfectly with the gold dinnerware and blush glassware. Chiffon runners gently added a focal point to the tables as well. Ruscus greenery floated down from the top of tent, for a perfect final touch. Check out all the beauty below, in photos by M. Hart Photography. Floral... Read More


Uniquely Beautiful at Carondelet House

July 5, 2022 5:47 pm

Carondelet House is one of the most distinctive venues in Los Angeles. The building is a former residence of an architect – and it shows. Tons of unique details abound, from the rich brick walls to the warm wood beams overhead to the charming little courtyard in the middle of the space. It’s no surprise wedding couples flock to Carondelet House to celebrate their weddings. Donna and Michael wanted a rustic but artful design; we created an asymmetrical border of greenery and orchids for a stunning framework to their vows. The ceremony chairs, a blend of natural woods and styles, offered a lighter counterpoint to the dark greenery, for a perfect balance. We brought in more lightness to the reception... Read More


An Intimate Celebration at Calamigos

July 1, 2022 11:25 am

For Mena and Cyrus’ winter wedding in Southern California, we ran with the foresty surroundings of Calamigos and decorated with tons of greenery – including above the sofreh and surrounding the welcome sign. Ivory roses everywhere provided a pretty and lush contrast, from the all-white bouquets of the bridesmaids to the classically simple centerpieces on the dining tables. We also provided florals and rose blooms for the beautiful sofreh. The seafoam bridesmaid dresses and linens wove seamlessly into the overall look.

A Magical Blush Wedding at the Broadmoor

June 21, 2022 4:45 pm

For Monica and Christopher’s wedding at the Broadmoor in Colorado, we draped nearly every surface with flowers, from the gates leading to the wedding aisle to the stunning chandelier in the Broadmoor’s ballroom. Outside, very light blush and ivory roses and flowers cascaded down the gates and arches of the ceremony. The soft colors aligned beautifully with the backdrop of the stunning hotel and mountain horizon. Down the aisle, white boxes with more blush and ivory roses flanked the bride as she walked towards the altar. The ballroom was completely draped and carpeted in white with blush lighting to create a dreamy, romantic space. We hung orchids off of every light feature in the room for a luxurious feel. Stunning... Read More


A Seaside White Wedding at the Montage Laguna Beach

June 14, 2022 6:06 pm

We love the crisp romanticism of an all-white wedding. Shabnam and Samer wanted every aspect of their affair at the Montage Laguna Beach to be modern yet lush. We created a nearly all-white design with little pops of fresh, springlike green. The ceremony sofreh featured tall centerpieces dripping with orchids. We flanked each side of the aisle with tall white wildflowers for a seamless look. Along with the clean white aisle and stage – plus stylish upholstered seats for the bride and groom – the overall look was perfection. At the reception, a beautiful arch with cherry blossoms and hanging crystals served as a photo-ready backdrop for the sweetheart table, itself draping with tons of flowers. The reception tables featured... Read More


Vivid Colors and Soft Romance at Saddlerock Ranch

June 7, 2022 2:46 pm

A spectrum of pinks and reds greeted Shawn and Melody’s wedding guests at their Saddlerock Ranch celebration. Their wedding chuppah featured soft blush and ivory; in the reception space – under a beautiful clear tent – our centerpieces featured fuchsia anemonies, pink ranunculus, blush hydrangeas, and bright red roses. Friendly and festive, this vivid color scheme was perfect for a spring wedding. Our weathered wood lanterns lined the carpeted ceremony aisle and matched the vintage-style cross-back wood chairs. Clusters of flowers sat atop the lanterns and matched the greenery and mix of ivory and blush flowers on the chuppah. In the reception tent, guests dined under twinkle lights and greenery, setting a romantic tone for the rest of the evening.... Read More
