Natural and Luxe at Malibu Rocky Oaks

March 6, 2019 2:54 am

At this Malibu Rocky Oaks wedding, our couple wanted a fresh, natural look, mixed with upscale touches – collections of chic candles, bespoke glassware, and rose gold elements. Planner Shelli Armstrong expertly brought it all together for a stunning event. A crown-like circle of greenery rimmed the ceremony platform, flanked with wood pillars and compote arrangements. The sweetheart table featured lush urn arrangements set atop wood pillars. Rich floral runners of eucalpytus and ivory roses spilled over rustic wood tables. How perfect are these salt and pepper cellars with the tiny service spoons? The table settings feature copper-rose gold and marble-style elements, and an adorable bloom of ivory rose on each charger.

Real Wedding: Quiet Elegance at the Langham Pasadena

March 1, 2019 2:11 am

Many of the weddings we design host literally hundreds of people – huge events with lots of guests. But some of the smaller, more intimate affairs are just as innovative design-wise as our larger events. For this wedding of less than 75 guests, the couple wanted to add architectural designs to their florals, and we were happy to oblige, from the circle of roses behind the couple – that later accented the cake table – to the lush flower wall behind the sweetheart table. As always, we enjoyed working with the confident and capable Katie Lee from Bella Destinee, and photographer Andy Seo. Gold chairs by Palace Party Rental vibed perfectly with the soft whites and ivories of the florals.... Read More

Who doesn’t love greenery? When the rustic trend came upon the wedding world a few years ago, it thrilled designers and florists everywhere. Greenery can be used to add lush depth and dimension to wedding floral design. For this sumptuous wedding at the Four Seasons Westlake Village, we used tons (well, not literally – but close!) of pepper tree, eucalyptus, and other foliage to create a dreamy look for our couple. Lin and Jirsa captured it all on camera, and Maryam Forutan, owner of Delicate Details, helped ensure all elements of this amazing wedding came together beautifully. A Chuppah with Greenery and White Flowers The centerpiece of the wedding ceremony was this chuppah, overflowing with greenery, amaranthus, and white and... Read More


Real Wedding: Soft Ivories and Romantic Greenery in the Malibu Hills

February 13, 2019 2:15 am

Private estates offer a one-of-a-kind, “Where is that?”-esque sense of sanctuary to a couple’s wedding day. For this event, the couple had their wedding at a private estate in Malibu, with a stunning backdrop of rolling hills and ocean waves. We created florals rich in texture and romantic greenery. The textures, colors, and overall inspiration of the wedding floral design was rustic and organic, as if the bouquets and design grew naturally from the surrounding hills. To create this look, we used ivory spray roses, roses, veronica, and varieties of greenery. The showpiece of this wedding was the half-crown backdrop of tall white florals and greenery, embracing the couple as they exchanged vows. Photos by Anya Kernes, below. The blush... Read More

January 18, 2019 5:46 pm

Butterfly Foral and Event Design owner Inna Savluk personally creates her bride’s bouquets with great care. The bridal bouquet is arguably one of the most important aspects of the wedding design. First, it complements and highlights the wedding dress; second, it’s the only thing the bride holds as she walks down the aisle, making it the most noticeable accent to her dress; and third, they are often preserved as a keepsake to treasure forever. Below are some of our favorite bouquets from past weddings. Classic, Crisp White Often, brides want to stay traditional and have a white bouquet to align with their dress. This bouquet, below, features stunning peonies and roses with pops of texture for a soft yet structured... Read More
