Gleaming Gold at the Beverly Hilton

November 14, 2022 2:16 pm

The Beverly Hilton features not only the ballroom where the Golden Globes and other prestigious events take place, but gorgeously neutral ballrooms for special celebrations, too. Aleen and Anthony chose one of these ballrooms for their very own prestigious event – their wedding! Gleaming gold was everywhere, from the glossy dance floor to the cutlery to the chargers. Our all-white floral palette aligned perfectly with the golden luster. We installed hanging roses and orchids above the dance floor, and garlands and cascades of white roses unfurled off of guest and sweetheart tables. Large centerpieces provided a backdrop for the cake, too, giving the room another indulgent focal point. The final touch: tons of flickering candles encased in clear class. Get... Read More


Winter White Magic in Aspen

November 10, 2022 11:21 am

A winter wedding has its own unique and stunning appeal – especially in the mountains of Aspen. Little Nell served as the venue for Arielle and Caleb’s absolutely gorgeous wedding, a collaboration with the amazing Mindy Weiss and her team. To echo the snow-covered horizon of the ceremony space, we built a chuppah covered with fluffy white baby’s breath, and another white-floral arch leading back to the dinner and dancing space. The all-white theme continued in the reception, with tons of white orchids hanging from the ceiling and classic white rose and orchid arrangements lining the tables.  Dramatic white draping with generous garlands of white flowers shrouded the entryway. Catch all the glamorous magic below, in photos by James x... Read More


Stylish Sage at the Beverly Wilshire

October 28, 2022 10:02 am

Draping a ballroom can set off the space with instant high impact. For Marina and Anthony’s wedding, sage green draping made all the difference. This shade of green is a soft but stylish color that offered a perfect counterpoint to the white and pink reception decor. We designed floral garlands, tall centerpieces, and bridge pieces of mauve baby’s breath, pink roses and dahlias, and white phalaenopsis orchids. Glossy white tables, white carpet, and upholstered white chairs let the pink palette of the flowers truly shine. The floral decor stood out even more against the sage green background. Accenting the tabletops were smaller arrangements and bud vases of roses, dahlias, and hydrangea – and of course, tons of candles! Photos by... Read More


Vivid Jewel Tones At Calamigos Ranch

October 18, 2022 5:35 pm

Jewel tones bring a deep vibrancy to an event, an unexpected bold vibe. Flowers come in so many gem-like hues, that for Jamie and Rusty we had a ton of options to work with. We focused on pinks, reds, and purples, with accents of blush to keep the look from seeming too ‘heavy.’ The Oaks Room ceremony space at Calamigos Ranch features a natural-looking arch that we decorated with lots of pink, purple, and red flowers as well as greenery to impart a loose, organic feel. We also decorated a chuppah to stand underneath the arch, adding lots of greenery along the posts. In the reception, loads of flowers accented every space, including the fireplace, along the tables, and cascading... Read More


Natural Beauty at Saddlerock Ranch

October 12, 2022 2:32 pm

For many weddings, the wedding chuppah is the first thing guests see and presents an opportunity to make a big impact with wedding design. Most importantly, the chuppah is an important symbol of Jewish weddings. We try to make every chuppah special and unique, and for Nicole and Mateen’s Saddlrock Ranch wedding, we created a large, lush structure to shelter the couple and their family during their wedding vows. Tree trunks supported the chuppah, and each corner held full greenery and flowers; the chuppah looked as if it were created by four trees. We collected white wildflowers at the base of each ‘tree’.’ Natural florals lined the white catwalk aisle for a cohesive, organic look. We added gold accents to... Read More


Stunning Touches and Lush Greenery at Vibiana

October 7, 2022 10:36 am

Lush, extravagant greenery surrounded guests at Therese and Danny’s wedding at Vibiana. From arches all along long tables to adorning Vibiana’s beautiful altar with garlands of greens, the space turned into a wondrous garden oasis. We created lovely white rose and greenery compote pieces for individual tables, as well as garlands of the same mix of florals for the long tables, tippling over into luxurious cascades. The couple took great advantage of the space by setting up lounge areas. In the cocktail space, we created compote pieces for cocktail tables and crowned a fun backddrop with florals and greenery. For a dessert lounge inside, we draped the bookshevles holding desserts with more greenery. Take in all of this whimsical, gorgeous... Read More


Two Beautiful Ceremonies at Hummingbird Nest Ranch

September 29, 2022 1:57 pm

For their multicultural ceremony, Sasha and Aneesh asked for light, pretty colors mixed with vivid accents. We styled the existing pergola at Hummingbird Nest Ranch with garlands of hot pink florals for the mandap portion of the ceremony. We removed the hot pink garlands for the second ceremony, and kept the border of soft green and pink florals and greenery. In the reception space, we gave a fresh garden feel to the round tables with light pink roses interspersed with lush greenery, and for a special touch, vine winding down the stands holding the tall centerpieces. On long tables, we created ‘floating’ centerpieces of textural, classic arrangements on clear plastic bridge stands. Hanging bulbs with candles added to the magic... Read More


Ornate Gold and Rich Red at Four Seasons Los Angeles

September 21, 2022 2:48 pm

Ornate gold and deep, vibrant, rich red set the stage for a one of a kind wedding for Cindy and Rambo’s April celebration at the Four Seasons Los Angeles. For the ceremony, we created a show-stopping gold deco style backdrop festooned with tons of crimson flowers. Large centerpieces on gold mirrored pedestals and a gold aisle completed the glamorous look. Inside the ballroom, guests were greeted with escort cards affixed to individual roses for a personal touch. Dinner tables covered in gold and red high-style linens also held tall, rich-red centerpieces in gold vases. Another amazing backdrop stood behind the lushly decorated sweetheart table and arched over the gorgeous wedding cake. If red symbolizes love, then love was everywhere at... Read More


A Showstopper at Bellagio

September 16, 2022 11:32 am

Perla and James wanted to truly wow their guests with exciting, high-impact setpieces at their winter wedding at the Bellagio. They married in a nearby church, for which we provided pretty aisle pieces and light florals, saving the razzle-dazzle for the reception. In the ballroom, which was made a blank canvas thanks to white carpet and draping, we created a stunning showpiece of mirrored columns with swaths of floral garlands and drifts of long white orchids hanging down from above. Even more special – A draped walkway lead guests to the reception space, creating an immersive feel right from the beginning of the event experience! Take it all in with Lighthouse Photocinema‘s photos, below! Floral Design: Butterfly Floral and Event Design... Read More


Charming Beauty at Hummingbird Nest Ranch

September 11, 2022 6:15 pm

Cameron and Ander wanted soft but striking colors and textures for their Hummingbird Nest Wedding this past July, particularly peach and green. The ceremony featured a stunning garland bordering a vintage door, for a one-of-a-kind backdrop to their vows. Spiky protea mixed in with lush greenery and pretty roses added an unexpected pop of playfulness. Peach, sage green, and gold elements mixed with ornamental touches of fruit and antiqued wood pillar candle holders. Along with vintage-style cutlery and glassware and wood tables, their dinner reception felt like it took place on the grounds of a grand estate. Check out all the beauty and charm in photos by Miki and Sonja Photography, below! Floral Design: Butterfly Floral and Event Design Planning: Pryor... Read More
