Pretty Romance at Calamigos Ranch

December 2, 2022 1:07 pm

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.

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


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


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


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


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.

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
